The starting line-up for Winter Love Island has been confirmed, and Scottish singer Paige Turley is the early favourite for glory.
Turley is one of a handful of contestants who will already be known to the public. The 22-year-old dated pop star Lewis Capaldi when she was 18, and she is also known for appearing on Britain’s Got Talent in 2012.
Now Paige is hoping to make an impact in the first ever winter version of Love Island, and Bookmakers make her the opening favourite at 7/4 – just ahead of Sophie Piper.
Sophie is another who people know through her family, as she is the sister – of Saturday’s singer and TV presenter Rochelle Humes.
As for the boys, and Bookmakers are Brighton salesman Connor Durman – the Russell Kane lookalike, who has previous worked as a naked waiter and he is priced at just 15/8 ahead of London policeman Mike Boateng.
OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “The first set of contestants are now confirmed for Winter Love Island and people may not take too much notice, but you only have to look back at the former winners to know that those who enter first have a big advantage.
“Every female in the winning couple has always been in the villa from day one, whilst only two of the winning males have not been there from the start – Max Morley in the first series and Greg O’Shea who won last year.
“So it is worthwhile having a bet early on, chances are you are going to have a decent chance of getting a winner.”
