ITV have confirmed the show’s first-ever winter edition will come to a close in just 10 days time with a live finale on Sunday February 23rd at 9pm on ITV2.
A tweet on the ITV Press Centre’s official Twitter account read:
‘Confirmed. Love Island: The Live Final. Sunday 23 February at 9pm on ITV2 #loveisland (sic)’.
At the current stage, there is just one official couple on the ITV2 dating show after Finn Tapp recently asked Paige Turley to be his girlfriend, and she accepted his offer.
And the couple – who survived the dreaded Casa Amor stage of the show – are currently the short-priced favourites with bookies Ladbrokes to win the series at just 5/4, followed by second favourites Luke Trotman and Siannise Fudge at 13/8.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said:
‘Finley and Paige are storming ahead in the Love Island betting right now and it looks as though Luke and Siannise will be their only real challengers for the crown’.
Despite not being in a couple, new Islander Jamie Clayton and one of the series’ originals, Shaughna Phillips, have been installed as third favourites to win the show at 9/2, followed by Luke Mabbott and Demi Jones at 6/1, and then potential couple Jamie and Demi at 10/1.
Callum Jones effectively dumped Shaughna when he came back from Casa Amor with Molly Smith on his arm, and while they are actually in a couple they are outsiders at 16/1.
