The three new Love Island bombshells have been finding their feet in the villa, and the triple arrival has well and truly shaken things up on betting sites

Grace Jackson, Wil Anderson - who is the brother of Newcastle United footballer Elliot Anderson - and Tiffany Leighton made a surprise entrance last week, and it was revealed Grace is an ex of Islander Joey Essex. 

The news already had Joey's partner, Samantha Kenny, riled, but she was left even more fuming when the TOWIE star kissed Grace and fellow newcomer Tiffany in a three-way smooch during a game.

If that wasn't enough for Samantha, the three new bombshells were given the chance to head to the usual Casa Amor villa for a one night sleepover with a fellow Islander of their choice.

Wil chose a delighted Uma Jammeh, Tiffany opted for Ronnie Vint - who was fresh out of a recent love triangle, after recoupling with Harriett Blackmore - and Grace went for her ex, Joey. 

Cue more disappointment for Samantha, who was furious that Joey hadn't given her a hug before he headed to the sleepover. 

However, Samantha could be even more annoyed on Monday night's episode if she discovers Joey and Grace indulged in some steamy smooches in the Casa abode. 

Grace Heads Top Woman Race

Following Grace's fast moves, she has also rocketed up the Top Woman market on Love Island betting sites

She was 11/2 to be the queen of the villa last week, but is now the 7/2 joint-favourite. 

Grace is alongside Nicole Samuel, who is 7/2 with Coral, while Mimii Ngulube (5/1) isn't too far behind. 

Joey's current partner Samantha was the 7/2 joint-favourite with Nicole late last week, but she has drifted to 11/2 fourth favourite following Grace and Joey's smooching session.

Elsewhere, Jess White, who is 13/2 with Bet365, looked disappointed to be overlooked for a trip to the sleepover, when Wil chose Uma instead. 

Despite that, she is still ahead of Uma (9/1) in the Top Female market.

While newcomer Grace has begun Island life as a strong contender for villa victory, it's a different story for fellow female bombshell Tiffany, who is propping up the Top Woman market at 14/1

Joey's Odds Shortens 

While Grace is in a good position to be this year's villa queen, self-proclaimed King of Essex Joey could also be sitting on the Love Island throne come the end of the series. 

He has shortened once again in the Top Man market on specials betting sites, from 7/4 to 13/8

Ciaran (5/1) remains his nearest competition, while Ayo is out to 11/2 after a quiet couple of episodes. 

Elsewhere, Sean remains 7/1, despite looking like he is heading for more of a friendship couple with Jess, but newcomer Wil is into 8/1.

However, with Uma over in the other villa with Wil, things are not looking so good for Omar Nyame, who she is coupled up with. 

Omar Nearing Villa Exit? 

Omar has drifted to a massive 16/1 to be this year's Top Man. 

Before Wil whisked Uma away to the sleepover, things appeared to be going okay between her and Omar, but viewers haven't seen many signs of a spark so far. 

Omar is now the 4/6 favourite on betting apps to be dumped from the Island next, while newcomer Tiffany is Evens second favourite.

Elsewhere, Harriett, who was left fuming that Tiffany took Ronnie over to the other villa, is 2/1 third favourite for a departure. 

At the other end of the market, Joey looks to be in Mallorca for the long haul. 

He is propping up the market at 12/1, with Grace not far behind at 10/1, and it would be a real surprise if either went home next following their latest flirty antics.

However, it would be less of a surprise if another of Joey's exes rocked up to the villa. 

Amy Willerton - who he became close to on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! in 2002 - is just 4/6 to be the next celebrity arrival in the villa, just behind dancer and model Abbie Quinnen (1/3).
