The latest bookies' odds on who will take home the Love Island crown this year...

Love Island is finally back and it is already off to an incredible start. The first episode of the 2018 season aired last night and from the stunning contestants to the high-stakes drama, it looks like Series 4 could end up being the show's biggest yet. With a debut of over 2.95 million viewers, it is already the most watched program ever on ITV2.

As it stands we have five sexy couples (Niall and Kendall, Alex and Samira, Eyal and Hayley, Wes and Laura, Jack and Dani). Some of them are happy (Niall and Kendall are adorable), others are less so (Alex and Samira aren't exactly soulmates).

Not to mention, there's also Adam to spice things up. Tonight the personal trainer will break up one of the couples by choosing a partner. We cannot wait to see how it unfolds.

Before the show even aired, Alex was the runaway favourite to snag the Love Island crown. However, after none of the girls picked the A&E doctor last night, his odds have immediately dropped. Stationary seller, Jack Fincham now soars to the lead after coupling up with Dani Dyer. He is then closely followed by Niall, Adam and Eyal with Alex and Wes at the back.

Jack Fincham - 5/2

Niall Aslam - 7/2

Adam Collard - 4/1

Eyal Booker - 5/1

Alex George - 10/1

Wes Nelson - 10/1

As for the girls, Dani Dyer maintains her position as the favourite girl to win Love Island. The barmaid and celeb daughter is already adored by many Love Island fans so it will be interesting to see if she can maintain that popularity throughout the season. She has close competition though. Kendall, Hayley, Laura and Samira are all right on her tail.

Dani Dyer - 2/1

Kendall Rae-Knight - 5/2

Hayley Hughes - 4/1

Laura Anderson - 5/1

Samira Mighty - 10/1

How reliable are the bookie's odds?

Last year, Coral correctly predicted that Kem and Amber would be the runaway winners of Love Island 2018 so there's a pretty good chance that they could be right again this year.

Nevertheless, this is early days and more contestants are still likely to be introduced to the show. Who do you think will win Love Island 2018?
