Luke T and Sianisse are heading for Winter Love Island glory, but can they be challenged?
Darlington-based semi-professional footballer Luke Trotman and Siannise Fudge – a beauty consultant from Bristol – have been firm favourites for more than a week.
Luke T and Siannise are now priced at 2/5 which is a probability of just over 70%, but given last year saw the favourites Tommy Furry and Molly Mae Hague beaten to the punch at the last hurdle – could we see the same this year?
If we do, it is likely only coming from two other couples and the main threat would be Finley Tapp & Paige Turley, rated at 2/1 they have themselves enjoyed favouritism.
And we can also reveal they are the audience favourites when it comes to Social Media, combined – former professional footballer Finley, from Milton Keynes, and Scottish singer/student Paige are currently the only couple with a combined following of over one million. Indeed of those left in the Villa, Paige is the most followed at just shy of 900,000 whilst Finley is the most followed boy at over 500,000.
Combined Followers of Love Island Couples
|Finley & Paige||1,444,888|
|Luke T & Siannise||992,848|
|Luke M & Demi||892,983|
|Callum & Molly||860,772|
|Ched & Jess||452,756|
|Mike & Priscilla||347,711|
The other couple who look threats to the top spot is the newest still left in the shape of Redcar’s Luke Mabbot and Demi Jones – who hails from Portsmouth.
The pair took a little time to get together, but they have seen big rises on Social media and have seen their odds cut into 9/2 and look like having a chance before the weekend’s finale.
The top-three aside, you are left with Callum & Molly, Mike & Priscilla and Ched & Jess – but they are all 33/1 minimum and don’t appear to be in contention.
OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “This looks done and dusted for Luke T & Siannise but we thought the same thing in the summer when Tommy & Molly were beaten to the punch late on by Greg and Amber, and that could happen this year.
“Finley & Paige are second favourites but the followers tells us they are popular, so they should be considered as real threats going into the final.
“In terms of betting, the only other couple the Bookmakers are considering is Luke M and Demi – they are both popular and if they have a good few last days they could be seen as candidate for the £50,000 top prize.”
