Love Island 2023 final: Who will be crowned the winners?

After eight weeks of grafting, recoupling, mad moves and of course making connections, the Love Island 2023 summer series will reach a conclusion on Monday, but who will be crowned the winners?

The second series of the year has certainly delivered drama, whether it be Ella's decision to bring back Ouzy from Casa Amor, the dumping and then return of Molly, or just Mitchel in general, with fans of the hit ITV2 reality show having been hooked to their screens on a nightly basis.

Now, with just five couples remaining, we take a look at which pair is likely to go on to be crowned champions and bag the £50,000 cash prize.

OddsWhitney Adebayo & Lochan Nowacki 4/5, Ella Thomas & Tyrique Hyde 2/1, Jess Harding & Sammy Root 10/3, Molly Marsh & Zachariah Noble 20/1

Whitney Adebayo and Lochan Nowacki @ 4/5

Fan favourite Whitney was one of the first bombshells to enter the villa this series. Arriving on day three, the London-based entrepreneur has captured the hearts of viewers with her 'telling it like it is' approach.

Never afraid to call a fellow islander out if she does not agree with them, Whitney was initially coupled with French heartthrob Mehdi Edno, but his shock dumping just before Casa Amor left the 25-year-old very much single.

Casa Amor certainly came at the right time for Whitney, as she met account manager Lochan, who won her over with his calm demeanour, as well as a similar moral compass that has allowed the two to click.

Announced as the most popular couple at the Beach Club following a public vote just a couple of weeks ago, it is no surprise that Whitney and Lochan remain the favourites at 4/5 to win the series, even if they do still have to survive another public vote with Mitch and Ella B on Sunday night.

Ella Thomas and Tyrique Hyde @ 2/1

They may have been paired together by the public on the first day, told each other "I love you" and become boyfriend and girlfriend, but it is fair to say no couple has been through more drama than model Ella and semi-professional footballer Tyrique this series.

Tyrique had never been in a relationship prior to entering the villa and that showed, as, despite his clear attraction to Ella, the 24-year-old could not stop his head from turning 360 degrees whenever a new bombshell arrived.

That put doubts in Ella's mind despite the couple making things exclusive ahead of Casa Amor, and it ultimately contributed to the Glasgow girl bringing back fellow Scot Ouzy See to the main villa, much to the anger of Tyrique.

It appeared to be curtains for the couple at that point, but Ella and Tyrique have since turned things around and now appear to be stronger than ever. At 2/1 they could still be crowned winners of the series.

Jess Harding and Sammy Root @ 10/3

Another couple who have had their fair share of ups and downs are aesthetics practitioner Jess and project manager Sammy, the latter having taken a similar approach to Tyrique when it has come to bombshells arriving.

Jess also had her head partially turned at times (remember Mitch declaring his interest), but despite all the roadblocks that were put in their way, it has felt like there was always a genuine connection between these two big personalities.

Over recent weeks we have certainly seen a different side to Sammy, who after being tempted by numerous new arrivals during his time in the villa, finally seems to have his eyes firmly set on Jess, even making the 22-year-old his girlfriend with the help of the rest of the villa.

Sammy has arguably grown the most out of any of the islanders during his time in the villa and with Jess maintaining her place as a villa favourite, the 10/3 about this pair to win the series could prove the real value for money.

Molly Marsh and Zachariah Noble @ 20/1

Musical theatre performer Molly and personal trainer Zach are another couple that have dropped the L-bomb in recent days, but it has been far from smooth sailing for the pair.

OG Molly made Love Island history this year, as she became the first contestant to be dumped, only to be brought back just over a week later as a Casa Amor bombshell.

Molly and Zach had appeared a strong couple when the Doncaster girl was dumped on day 19, but Zach quickly moved on, coupling up with bombshell Kady McDermott - the very person who had inadvertently sent Molly home.

However, following Molly's shock return, the couple have rekindled their love affair and appear to be going from strength-to-strength, although after being voted one of the least popular couples at the last public vote, they are 20/1 to go on and win the series.

Ella Barnes and Mitchel Taylor @ 150/1

What a journey gas engineer Mitch, or 'Messy Mitch' as he's been dubbed, has been on.

From seemingly falling head over heels in love with Molly on day one, to being notoriously single for weeks, before then having two girls chasing after him, the Sheffield boy has certainly seen his fair share of drama.

A popular figure at the start of the series, Mitch has seemingly seen his stock fall over recent weeks for the way he treated then partner Abi Moores and current beau Ella Barnes, who were both vying for his affections.

Mitch has certainly been at the heart of a lot of the drama in this series - his recent falling-out with semi-pro footballer Scott van-der-Sluis being another example.

While just this week he went from telling the boys that Ella B is fake to making things exclusive with the championship dancer.

Ella B's head has rightly been scrambled by Mitch's 'mad moves' and, after being voted the least-compatible couple by their fellow islanders, it looks like the duo's journey will come to an end just short of the final, which is reflected in their 150/1 odds to win the series.
