The four remaining contestants in reality show Celebrity Love Island will learn tonight which of them will walk away with a share of the £100,000 (€149,514) prize.

Nightclub owner Fran Cosgrave is pitted against former footballer Lee Sharpe and former topless model Jayne Middlemiss will fight it out with Atomic Kitten Liz McClarnon on the Fijian island as viewers choose one boy and one girl to win £50,000 (€74,770) each.

Viewers of the ITV show are already voting in the phone-in to decide the winners and lines will close shortly before the end of tonight’s programme so the lucky pair can be revealed on air.

Bookies Ladbrokes make Cosgrave and Middlemiss the favourites to share the winnings. Jayne is the front-runner at 1/10, while Fran is carrying odds of 4/9.

Lee and Liz are the outside bets on 13/8 and 11/2 respectively.

After five weeks in paradise the 13 contestants have finally been whittled down to four, with model Abi Titmuss the last to get the boot during Saturday night’s show.

Despite sparks flying between contestants throughout the show bookies are refusing to pay out on bets that any of the love-struck celebs have gone all the way.

Ladbrokes spokesman Warren Lush said: “We haven’t paid out on an island bonk - the producers have to show more evidence.”
