With just a few days to go until the Winter Love Island 2023 finale, bookies have revealed which couple is the favourite to win the ITV series. Filmed in South Africa and hosted by Maya Jama, the winter edition of the popular reality dating show kicked off on ITV2 in January and is set to conclude next week..
Over the past few weeks, viewers have watched multiple recouplings, shock dumpings, sneaky kisses, dramatic betrayals – and of course the explosive fallout from Casa Amor. Currently, only five couples are left in the villa of love including Kai and Sanam,Will and Jessie, Tom and Samie, Ron and Lana, and Shaq and Tanya.
The winning couple of Love Island earn a share of £50,000, but this wasn’t always the case. Before 2022 there was a potential twist, with one of the winning islanders being asked whether they would share the money with their beau or keep it for themselves.
The most recent Love Island finale aired in August 2022 and drew a TV audience of 3.4 million as Ekin-Su and Davide were crowned as the series 8 winners. In the previous winter series which aired back in 2020, Paige Turley and Finn Tapp won the £50,000 prize money.
