BRIGHTON’S Luca Bish and his partner Gemma Owen going head to head tonight to be crowned the winners of Love Island 2022.

The final episode of the ITV dating series will see Gemma and Luca, Ekin-Su Culculoglu and Davide Sanclimenti, Tasha Ghouri and Andrew Le Page, and Indiyah Polack and Dami Hope battle it out for the title and to take home the £50,000 prize.

Paige Thorne and Adam Collard narrowly missed out on a place after they received the least amount of votes from the public and therefore were dumped from the villa in Sunday’s episode.

The “voice” of Love Island, Iain Stirling, said it is “bitter sweet” as the eighth series comes to an end.

Scottish comedian and TV star Stirling, 34, has narrated the ITV2 show since 2015 and his wife, Laura Whitmore, has hosted it since 2020.

He told Good Morning Britain: “I think it is bitter sweet from contestant up to, you know, executive producer and everyone in-between, it is that thing of it’s two months, it’s every day. We’ve had such a nice time (but) we’re all probably ready to go home.

“But we’re very excited for the final, and also there’s that horrible feeling of then it’s over, and what do you do? What do you do with your evenings?”.

Earlier in the penultimate episode of the series, the islanders received socially distanced visits from their friends and families.

Former England striker Michael Owen did not come to see his daughter Gemma, but his wife Louise did reveal his thoughts about her time on the show.

After Gemma asked what her father felt about how she had handled herself, Louise told her: “Honestly, he is really proud of you, really proud.”

However, her friend Sarah, who also came to visit, admitted that there was a photo circulating on social media where Luca, 23, had a striking similarity to Michael Owen.

The Love Island final airs on ITV2 at 9pm.
