JACQUES and Paige have now been put as favourites to win this year’s Love Island, priced at 6-4, after being chosen to spend a steamy night in the Hideaway.

The episode, which saw Ikenna and Amber make an emotional exit from the villa, contained a game of truth or dare after which the villa crew chose Jacques - rugby pro from Askam - and Paige - paramedic from Swansea - to spend the night in the steamy Hideaway.

With several loved up pairs not officially coupled up, this left only Jacques and Paige eligible to spend the night together. Perhaps some alone time will cement their growing relationship.

UK bookmakers William Hill certainly believe so, placing the couple as favourites to win the show, and slashing their odds from 5-2 to 6-4. 

However, things are set to be shaken up in the villa after Jay - an investment analyst from Edinburgh - expressed interest in Paige. Speaking to Gemma, he revealed he wants someone ‘laid back’, despite being coupled up with actress Ekin-Su.
