After much anticipation, Love Island is soon back on our screens, with a host of singletons headed for Spain in search of romance.
Ahead of next week premier, BestofBets.com has looked at the list of Top Man and Woman and the current favourites are disabled England cricketer Hugo Hammond (11/4) and Scottish model Shannon Singh, from Fife (3/1).
Born with clubfoot and going on to represent his country in cricket, Hugo is the early market leader to emerge from the villa victorious.
Hashtag United footballer Toby Aromolaran is next in the pecking order, priced at 7/2 and will be looking to find a keeper in Mallorca.
VIP host Aaron Francis has looked after everyone from the Royals to Stormzy, and can be found as joint-fourth favourite in the betting at 4/1.
That’s the same price as Northumberland labourer Brad McClelland, who reportedly split with his girlfriend of eight years before heading to the villa.
Finally, Water Engineer Jake Cornish rounds off the betting ahead of the start of the show, priced as the least likely to win at 5/1.
Taking a look at the female half of the villa, it’s a similarly tightly priced market, although there are a number of longer priced hopefuls.
Leading the way is Scottish model Shannon Singh, from Fife is currently 3/1 – with some bookies making her as short as 5/2.
Influencer and model Kaz Kamwi is next up in the bookies list at 4/1 boasting brand deals outside the villa with the likes of Primark and SkinnyDip.
Beauty pageant contestant-turned Department of Transport Operations Lead Sharon Gaffka is next up in the betting at 9/2.
Interestingly, there are six women compared to five men, and that’s reflected in the market.
There are two hopefuls priced at 6/1 in Liberty Poole and Faye Winter.
Despite labelling herself as “bubbly, funny and a big character”, rounding off the market is marketing executive Chloe Burrows at 8/1.
Much will obviously change over the next few weeks but this is where the market is at the moment.
