However, there was no shock elimination on Sunday (22 August), as Liberty and Jake walked just days before the finale.

When is the Love Island 2021 final?

The show will end tonight, 23 August.

Tonight, a girl and body will win £50,000.

The winning couple then gets the chance to split or steal, and while all former contestants have chosen to split the prize money, there is nothing to say this has to happen.

How are the finalists chosen?

The two couples who make it to the final have endured eight weeks of sun, sea and sizzling hot drama.

The couples have recoupled each week, choosing to stick with their partner or choose someone else. The person who is not recoupled has then been dumped from the Mallorcan villa.

However, this year’s fan favourites, Liam and Millie, were both late entries so they have not endured the entire eight weeks.

Who are the favourite-to-win couples?

According to Oddschecker, Millie and Liam are firm favourites with odds of 4/6.

Next in line to be crowned king and queen is Toby Aromolaran and Chloe Burrows, odds are 13/8.

However, Teddy Soares and Faye Winter could be darkhorses, despite her firey temper causing her to be called out by domestic abuse charities, Faye and Teddy have odds of 13/1.

When is Love Island on TV?

Love Island’s finale will air from 9pm tonight on ITV2, the show will also be available on ITVBe and BritBox.
