See how wor lad Brad McLelland, from Amble, Northumberland, has fared since being name bookies’ favourite at odds of 9/4 after the show was first aired on Monday night (June 28), when he was coupled with Faye Winter. Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub. New episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
1. Liam Reardon, 7/1, new boy
Newcomer Liam Reardon, 21, is a bricklayer from Wales, who is after a new partner. He said: "It’s been a while since I’ve had a girlfriend. I’m struggling to find one. I am competitive to a certain extent. I’m not over the top. It’s always nice being a winner. If I’m in competition for a female, I want to try my best, but I won’t go too far out of my way. If she liked you that much she wouldn’t have to make a choice."
2. Chuggs Wallis, 7/1, new boy
Newcomer Chuggs Wallis, 23, from Surrey, who owns a business selling customised hats. He said: "I just feel like it’s now or never. I’m only 23 but I’m scared of aging. Especially as half of my last year of uni was taken away and we had so many fun plans. With Covid and the pandemic, I feel like I’ve missed a year of my youth, so I’m really gagging to get it all back – make the most of it."
3. Sharon Gaffka, 13/2
Previous odds: 6/1
Sharon is a 25-year-old from Oxford is a civil servant.
4. Chloe Burrows, 5/1
