What time is the Love Island finale on?

The Monday night final takes place on 29th July, and will air from 9pm - 10.35pm on ITV2, and where as the usual show is footage that has been filmed and edited from the previous days, the episode will air live from the villa with Caroline Flack presenting and a live audience present.

The episode will run for roughly half an hour longer than a usual episode, an hour and thirty five minutes in total.

Who is the favourite couple to win?

The bookies' favourite couple to win is Greg & Amber, despite them only being a 'couple' for a relatively short period of time, where as Molly-Mae & Tommy, widely seen as the most solid couple, and Curtis & Maura, are estimate to be in the running for third and fourth place.

Ovie and India also have good odds to win, ever since the nation pretty much fell in love with the professional basketball player and his laid back attitude and hilarious catchphrases.

What is the prize for the Love Island winners & what is the twist?

The winning couple get a £50,000 prize between them, but it isn't as simple as that.

Caroline offers both individual the option to either split it 50/50 or steal the money for themselves, which makes for a moment of seriously tense TV- however, the 'golden balls' moment of one person stealing the money has never yet happened.

This is probably because they're aware that basically the entire nation is watching them on live TV and would have a field day knowing they'd cheated their better half out of 25k, but hey, who is to say this year couldn't be different?
