Harry and Georgia win Heartbreak Island and TVNZ confirm the show is renewed for a second season

They're walking away with love and money!

After five weeks of challenges, romance and tears, Heartbreak Island contestants Harry Jowsey and Georgia Bryers have won the competition.

The pair, who coupled up on the show, have won the prize package of $100,000, an all-new Suzuki Swift and a holiday to Los Angeles.

Although their relationship caused controversy, the love-birds played strategically and combined their strengths.

In the final episode, Harry and Georgia went up against their friends Joshua Frankhauser and Ruby Mills in a three-part challenge.

Winner and fan favourite, Harry Jowsey, says his time on Heartbreak Island was something he would cherish.

"Winning Heartbreak Island is incredible! To have made it to the very end of the competition and to have done it with someone as incredible as Georgia is something I will cherish for the rest of my life," he says.

"Heartbreak Island was life changing to say the least; the experiences, the lovely locals and everyone behind the scenes made it all worthwhile. Walking away with the ultimate prize and memories that will never fade is something that I could only dream of."

Georgia added: "Taking a leap of faith and going onto Heartbreak Island has been my most life-changing experience to date! It was the most exciting, challenging and high-intensity situation I've ever been in and I could not be prouder of how well Harry and I worked together and managed to come out on top. I have made friendships and memories that will last a life time and I wouldn't change my time on the island for the world."
