Love Island: Start time, how to watch & odds

ITV's hit reality dating show Love Island returns to our screens for its 10th series this summer with a new batch of Islanders having jetted off to Mallorca.

Presenter Maya Jama is once again fronting the show, having done so for the winter edition in South Africa earlier this year.

It was Kai Fagan and Sanam Harrinanan who were crowned winners of the 2023 winter series, while Ekin-Su Culculoglu and Davide Sanclimenti prevailed in the most recent summer series last year.

Mitchel Taylor, a gas engineer from Sheffield, is the 5/2 favourite in the Top Man category, closely followed by 3/1 chance Andre Furtado.

In the Top Woman category, Molly Marsh leads the way at 5/2 with Ella Thomas closely behind her at 11/4.

When is Love Island?

The latest season of Love Island begins at 21:00 on Monday 5th June 2023 and the series is expected to run for eight weeks.

Provided the 10th season follows the usual format, that means the show's grand final will likely take place on Sunday 30th July, although this is not yet confirmed.

The winning couple is also set to scoop a prize of £50,000 between them. There was previously the option to share or steal this amount for one of the islanders in the winning couple but this was scrapped in the 2023 winter series.

Where is Love Island?

While this year's winter series took place in South Africa, the summer show will be returning to Mallorca in the Balearic Islands.

Where can I watch Love Island?

The popular dating show will be broadcast on ITV2 at the usual time of 21:00. It will also be available on ITV's streaming service ITVX and on various catch-up shows throughout the series.

Who is the host of Love Island?

Maya Jama, who has previously hosted Walk The Line, The Brits Are Coming and Crouchy's Year-Late Euros: Live, will be hosting her second ever series of Love Island, having made her debut in the winter.

The 28-year-old replaced Laura Whitmore, who stepped down from hosting duties after the 2022 series.

How many times has Love Island taken place?

This is set to be the 10th series of Love Island with the show having first aired back in 2015. Jess Hayes and Max Morley were crowned champions on that occasion.

There have also been spin-offs off the show such as The Reunion, Aftersun and The Weekly Hotlist which all come from the original reality programme.

Love Island became the most-watched show in ITV2's history in 2018 and peaked with an average viewership of 5.61 million a year later.

Which Love Island couples are still together? 

The winning couples of each of the last two series - Kai Fagan and Sanam Harrinanan and Davide Sanclimenti and Ekin-Su Culculoglu are both still together.

Indiyah Polach and Dami Hope and Tash Ghouri and Andre Le Page - couples from the 2022 summer series - are also still in relationships with the latter currently living together.

Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury are also still going strong since hooking up in Mallorca back in 2019, with Molly-Mae having given birth to their first child Bambi Fury earlier this year.

Who are the favourites for Love Island?

Before the series begins, there is betting on both the Top Man and Top Woman for Love Island 2023.

Mitchel Taylor leads the way at 5/2 in the Top Man category, with 21-year-old business owner Andre Furtado 3/1 to win the series.

Semi-professional footballer Tyrique Hyde, business development executive George Fensom and London-based communications manager Mehdi Edno, meanwhile, are all 4/1.

Musical theatre performer Molly Marsh, who is the daughter of Coronation Street actress Janet Marsh, is 5/2 favourite in the top woman category.

Her closest competition appears to be 11/4 shot Ella Thomas, a model from Glasgow, while beautician Ruchee Gurung and aesthetics practitioner Jess Harding are both 4/1 to go the distance.

Dublin-based commercial estate agent Catherine Agbaje, meanwhile, is 9/2 to win.
