Tonight's the night! It's time for the Love Island season 7 final, folks.

The UK’s most popular reality TV show has proven to be another hit in its seventh season and Love Island betting has proved almost as entertaining this season. After a stunning Jake/Liberty exit on Friday night, the 'winning couple' betting market now suggests a clear-cut winner for tonight's mammoth finale.

Gambling.com can reveal that Liam and Millie are currently 8/13 favourites with Ladbrokes, which equates to a whopping 61.9% probability that they'll leave Majorca crowned as season 7 Love Island victors. Next up in the betting, bookies are offering a lengthier 6/4 on Toby and Chloe in a battle that no longer looks set to go down to the wire.

Across the board, betting sites offering TV specials are mostly siding with Liam and Millie ahead of Monday's finale, with bookies in agreement that every other couple are pretty much out of the race at this stage.

Until recently, Jake and Liberty looked unmovable in the betting after enjoying favouritism from week one to episode 31, but recent bumps in the road saw them fade from nailed-on winners to not-a-chancers, with the couple breaking up and exiting the villa last Friday in dramatic fashion.

Ladbrokes had calculated the chances of either contestant walking from the villa with a dramatic split in the pipeline - it was 5/4 for Jake to walk, and 2/1 for Liberty to go. So, if you took either of those bets last week - fair play!

The general consensus, both inside the villa and among TV viewers, is that Jake was disingenuous and had been playing a game for the cameras from the start, but his gameplan was rumbled on the final stretch.

Toby and Chloe - who briefly headed the betting earlier this month - lost momentum going into the final and at a best price of 6/4 across the board, they no longer look to be Liam and Millie's only genuine rivals.

With little to no drama occurring between Toby and Chloe, likewise with Liam and Millie, it's easy to see why most bookies made it a coin-toss between the two most loved-up couples. Yet public betting opinion seems to have sided firmly with Liam and Millie going into tonight.

However, Teddy and Faye are still an interesting option. They're as big as 12/1 in the betting but as short as 8/1 in some quarters. Read into that what you will, but given how volatile the betting has been - a bit like Faye herself - they could yet play their way into further contention over the course of today.

Over the weekend the Islanders were introduced to each other's parents in a classic love island segment, with some fans baffled by the awkward social distancing measures implemented by the show's producers.

With only a few hours to go, Ladbrokes are offering 8/1 on either member of the winning couple to 'steal' the prize money in Monday night's final.
