When asked who they thought could win Love Island 2023, Abi and Scott were both backing different couples. Scott said Tyrique and Ella, and added: “I think they’ve been on the biggest journey. The public put them together on day one and I think Ty has struggled with his emotions for so long and for him to say ‘I love you’ and come to terms with everything for this one girl is the best!”

However Abi is backing Molly and Zach or Whitney and Lochan. She said: “Molly is my girl and they do have a really strong connection. Even though they are total opposites, they just work! I think my winner is Whitney and Lochan, she’s been my winner since I saw her for the first time. She’s just got the energy and she’s just great. Lochan is very invested in her, I definitely see them becoming boyfriend and girlfriend very soon.”

Ouzy added: “They always found their way back to each other and they had the strongest connection from early on.”

Josh said: “Ty and Ella – it’s so real between them two. Ty is so head over heels for her, he’s basically in love with her. Sammy and Jess – even though I split them up for a couple of days, there is a reason they keep coming back to each other as they get on so well.”
