Love Island finale confirmed as show will run for three more weeks

Love Island is apparently set to end in just under three weeks.

The final of the current series of the ITV2 show – which started on June 28 – will air on August 23, according to multiple reports.

It means this year’s contestants have just 20 days left to charm viewers with their antics in the hope of being crowned the winners and taking home the £50,000 jackpot.

Jake Cornish and Liberty Poole have long been thought of as frontrunners this year, with bookmakers William Hill putting them at 2/1.

Millie Court and Liam Reardon were also contenders but Liam may well have tanked their chances when he hooked up with Lillie Haynes.

The 21-year-old had his head turned by Lillie while he was at Casa Amor – and then laughed when Millie found out about it.

With Millie and Liam now possibly out of the running, Faye Winter and Teddy Soares seem to have risen up in their place.

The couple’s relationship was rocked by Casa Amor too but they appear to have got things back on track.

William Hill now put them at 2/1 along with Jake and Liberty.

Last year’s series was won by Finn Tapp and Paige Turley and Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea clinched the title the year before.

But many viewers have said they think it might be harder to call this year.

“It’s one of the most unpredictable seasons in ages – I can’t guess who the winners are,” one person posted on Twitter.

“I have no idea who will win,” said another.

One posted: “This year you can’t even predict a winner. Poor Lib is going to miss out because of Jake.

“Millie was a good contender but Liam spoilt it. Before Casa, maybe Kaz and Tyler but not now. Can we have just a one person winner please and that would be Teddy yay!”

Others think it might be a good year to have a solo winner for the first time, with Teddy and Kaz Kamwi among the names in the mix.

The Daily Star has contacted ITV to confirm the date of the final.
