Love Island has seen more than its fair share of ups and downs over the last eight weeks. There have been surprise bombshells coming in and turning heads, Casa Amor antics and shock dumpings – enough to make Islanders unsure about which lucky contestants will take home that £50,000 cash prize.

But that moment is almost upon us as Monday night marks the grand finale of series eight! Sunday's episode saw the remaining Islanders wave goodbye to Paige Thorne and Adam Collard, meaning your Love Island 2022 finalists are: Tasha and Andrew, Ekin-Su and Davide, Luca and Gemma and Indiyah and Dami. 

So who are the favourites? We did some investigating…

Who are the favourites to Love Island 2022?

According to Betfair, the current couple looking likely to win Love Island series eight is Ekin-Su and Davide. The pair had a brief tiff following movie night after Davide was left unimpressed with Ekin-Su and George's "flirting", but it seems they've patch things up.

According to another poll from Goss, Ekin-Su and Davide are once again at the top, while Indiyah and Dami are second favourites.

Despite being boyfriend and girlfriend, and dropping the 'L-bomb', Tasha and Andrew are listed as the least likely couple to win, while Gemma and Luca rank just above them. But, as with every series, the audience have the final say so we'll have to wait and see…

Ekin-Su and Davide are the favourites to win

Despite being boyfriend and girlfriend, and dropping the 'L-bomb', Tasha and Andrew aren't listed in the top three couples expected to win. But given Dami and Luca's recent fallout with Tasha, it may be that the viewers turn their support towards Tasha.

Who do the fans want to win Love Island 2022?

Since the beginning of the series, fans have been taking to social media to give their thoughts on who they think could win the show. Although things change on the programme over the eight weeks it airs, at the moment, fans seem convinced that Ekin-Su and Davide could land the top spot.

One person said on Twitter: "I feel like Love Island is full of very immature 'boys'. However if #Davide or #ekinsu don't win then there's something wrong! In my eyes only real couple in there! #LoveIsland."

A second agreed, tweeting: "If Ekin-Su & Davide don't win, I'm suing the UK for damages. I'm calling upon Jay to testify #LoveIsland."

A third added: "I wouldn't be mad if Davide and Ekin win hey. #loveisland," as a fourth wrote: "If [Ekin-Su and Davide] don't win over Gemma and Luca I'll be mad mad #LoveIsland."

When is the Love Island 2022 final?

The Love Island finale will take place on Monday 1 August. As always, the action will kick off on ITV2 at 9pm and viewers can expect the finale to be slightly longer than your average episode, as has been the case in previous years.

The first episode of this series was 95 minutes and it looks as though the finale could run for the same amount of time, from 9pm to 10:35pm.
