Josh Packham and Anna McEvoy were crowned the winners of Love Island Australia's second season on Thursday night.

The couple took home a $50,000 cash prize, defeating rivals Cartier Surjan and Matthew Zukowski, and Cynthia Taylu and Aaron Shaw in a public vote.

Mortgage broker Josh, 26, and model Anna, 27, were the longest-running couple left in the villa, pairing up on day 12 and sticking together the entire time.

'Expressing my feelings to Anna, I started to well up, and I tried to hold it, but I had to take a moment to take a deep breath and just get those words out.' 

Josh joined the Love Island villa on day eight with his twin brother, Luke, and almost immediately struck up a relationship with Anna, who had entered four days prior. 

The couple rarely fought and became known for their loud kissing sessions.
