As the series draws to a close… take a look-back at the most shocking moments of the series
Tyrique Hyde and Ella Thomas
One of the series’ original couples, Ella and Tyrique have overcome ever obstacle imaginable to maintain their love.
Given he’s never been in a relationship, Tyrique was keen to explore options with other girls as and when they entered the villa, leaving Ella questioning his commitments.
These doubts blew back in a huge way when she decided to recouple with Ouzy in Casa Amor, while Ty stayed loyal.
Ella eventually saw the error in her ways and they found their way back to each other, and Ty even uttered those famous three words for the first time on a romantic date on the front steps of the villa.
While Ella and Ty were considered many fans’ pick to win, bookies currently have them at 11/4.
Molly Marsh and Zachariah Noble
When Zachariah entered the villa as the first bombshell of the series, he quickly caught Molly’s eye and she was lured away from her first partner Mitch.
But she struggled to hang onto her man when Love Island veteran Kady McDermott strutted back into the villa, and decided to steal him.
It was a decision that led to one of the most shocking moments in the show’s history, when Molly was abruptly dumped from the villa.
Zach wasn’t a free man for long, as Molly made an explosive return to the villa during Casa Amor, and reunited with him.
Their relationship hasn’t been without tension, with a in a furious row when Zach kissed Kady TWICE in Snog, Marry Pie.
But despite this, Zach and Molly are still battling it out for the Love Island crown, though they are considered outsiders with odds of 25/1.
Jess Harding and Sammy Root
Jess and Sammy’s ride hasn’t been easy, with the hunk struggling to show he’s willing to commit, and they were even forced to split when they were voted the last compatible couple by viewers.
While Jess questioned whether he would stay loyal, the hunk kissed both Amber and Gabby in the same night, before opting to reunite with the blonde beauty.
In recent weeks, things have settled down for the couple, and Sammy even asked Jess to be his girlfriend.
Latest odds have them at 4/1 to be crowned winners.
Whitney Adebayo and Lochan Nowacki
After a short-lived romance with Mehdi Edno, Whitney sparked up a romance with Lochan during Casa Amor and since then their relationship as gone from strength.
They’re currently odds-on to be crowned winners, with Ladbrokes placing them at 1/2.
Who will battle it out for the Love Island crown?
