General: Love Island final preview

It has been another memorable summer of explosive rows, dumpings and re-couplings in Majorca and series eight of ITV2's reality dating show Love Island comes to an end on Monday night.

Following the departures of Paige Thorne and Adam Collard in Sunday night's episode, there are only four couples remaining in the villa with one set to win £50,000 at the end of the final.

Longest series yet draws to a close

Never before has a series of Love Island been this long.

Monday will mark eight weeks since the series began with 10 islanders bidding to find love and from Casa Amor to the return of a former islander, there have been plenty of twists and turns since the opening day.

Ekin-Su and Jay Younger's terrace kiss and Andrew's admission of his intimate antics with Casa Amor girl Coco Lodge will go down as some of the iconic moments of the series, widely considered to be one of the best yet.

Davide and Ekin-Su worthy favourites to scoop £50k

As far as the prices are concerned, one couple stand out above the rest heading into Monday's final.

Turkish actress Ekin-Su and business owner Davide have provided some of the funniest and most heart-warming moments of the series but are also 1/8 favourites to win the prize money.

Anyone who has kept on top of social media channels throughout this series will agree that seems a fair price with the couple immensely popular with the public, even if their fellow islanders voted them as the least compatible in Friday night's episode.

Earlier in the series we saw the arrival of bombshell Jay rock the couple and the aforementioned kiss between the gym fanatic and Ekin-Su prompted Davide to label his partner as a "liar" and an "actress" in an impassioned rant.

At that stage, it never looked as though they would get back together but Casa Amor, during which neither of them recoupled, marked a turning point in their relationship and they have since gone from strength-to-strength, entertaining the public with banterous teasing and their love of cooking together.

Tash and Andrew could be second best in Majorca

With Davide and Ekin-Su 1/8 to win Love Island 2022, the best betting approach could be in the market without them.

In the 'without Davide Sanclimenti and Ekin-Su Culculoglu market, Andrew and Tasha and Luca and Gemma are both tough to separate at 1/1 and 1/1 respectively with Dami and Indiyah, who are 10/1, expected to finish fourth.

Earlier in the series, it would have been a shock for Luca and Gemma to miss out on the top two but one could argue the relationship between the pair has in fact deteriorated somewhat in the last couple of weeks.

When reuniting with her son in Sunday's episode, Luca's mother herself claimed he had over-reacted at times in the villa, clashing with fellow islander Tasha and coming across on occasion as possessive in his relationship with Gemma.

On Sunday he could be seen confronting couple Dami and Indiyah about their decision to vote him and Gemma as one of the least compatible couples and that did not go down well with the public.

Instead, Andrew and Tasha could be the better bet to finish second to Davide and Ekin-Su.

The estate agent from Guernsey and the dancer from Thirsk have had a tumultuous time of it in the villa but are the only couple who have been together from day one.

Initially put together by the public, they were up-and-down in the early weeks with Tasha's genuineness questioned but tensions reached fever pitch at Casa Amor, where Andrew, angered by suggestions that Tasha was not interested in him, shared moments of intimacy with Coco.

Both he and Tasha recoupled after Casa Amor and it looked as though that was the end for them but they have since found their way back to one another and gone from strength-to-strength.

Tasha reportedly pledged any potential Love Island winnings to a charity for deaf children and that could also play into the minds of the public heading into Monday night's episode.
