Kai Fagan and Sanam Harrinanan are convinced their relationship will stand the test of time because they aren't interested in being famous.

The couple won 'Love Island' last year and they recently celebrated their first anniversary together, and they have now declared their romance will go the distance because they prioritise spending time with each other instead of attending glitzy parties.

Kai told OK! magazine: "The difference between 'Love Island' couples and ordinary couples is that there is a lot of pressure on the relationship when you leave the villa.

"What makes Sanam and I different is that you have to decide what you want more – the fame that comes with the show, or the person you’re in a relationship with. You get invited to parties but we wanted each other more than that lifestyle. We enjoy every moment together and we do things the other person is interested in, too."

Sanam added: "We make time for each other, we have a good balance and prioritise our relationship over the other stuff that comes our way."

She went on to insist she's still in the same job she had before the show and has no intention of quitting to become an influencer or a socialite.

She said: "I didn’t go on 'Love Island' for fame and I never had that sort of lifestyle before the show. I was a social worker beforehand and still am. It’s given me an amazing platform."

Kai concurred saying: "I’ve never been interested in chasing fame. But being given the opportunity to go on a show like that at 24 years old, I think most people my age would have done the same. It opens doors, but it’s about how you use it."

Kai worked as a PE teacher before joining the ITV dating show, but he recently told HeatWorld he's keen to “do the same things” but in a “different capacity”.
