Love Island 2024: The Only Way Is Up For Joey Essex
© PA

Love Island fans were treated to yet more drama on Tuesday night's episode when Omar Nyame and Mimii Ngulube chose to steal a partner each in the latest recoupling.

Uma Jammeh was left devastated as Mimii took Ayo Odukoya from her, but latest bombshell Omar then softened the blow by coupling up with Uma. 

It has stirred things up on betting sites overnight, with Uma's odds to go next slashed, but there has been a familiar price drop at the summit of the Top Man market.

Joey On Course For Victory 

It's still early days in series 11, but former The Only Way is Essex star Joey Essex's odds on Love Island betting sites sites have reduced once again. 

After becoming the first-ever celebrity to enter the civilian series, Joey is now just 6/4 with Bet365 to be the last man standing and claim half of the £50,000 prize. 

His odds have shortened most days since he shocked the nation by entering the villa at the end of last week's launch night episode.

Joey had appeared to be in a strong couple with Samantha Kenny, and she leads the way in the Top Woman market at 5/2 favourite with Bet365, but there have been some potential cracks appearing lately. 

Earlier this week, Samantha was left slightly peeved when Joey had to kiss someone else as part of a challenge, and the reality TV veteran hasn't been that overjoyed at Samantha confessing she is a TOWIE super-fan. 

After recently joking that she had been researching him before entering the villa, she said: "I'm just a big TOWIE fan, leave me alone."

TOWIE Takeover

If one TOWIE star in the villa isn't enough for Samantha, then it wouldn't be a complete surprise if another headed in shortly. 

Pete Wicks is the Evens third favourite on to be the next celebrity to enter the Love Island villa this year. 

Model and dancer Abbie Quinnen is the 1/3 favourite after she was recently linked to the show, and Joey's ex Amy Willerton is just 4/6

An appearance from the former Miss Universe Great Britain star would be a curveball for Joey and Samantha's romance, while Harriett Blackmore would be delighted to see one of her close pals, former Strictly Come Dancing star Saffron Barker (6/4), rock up in the villa. 

Elsewhere, Too Hot To Handle's Chloe Veitch is 2/1 to show the villa whether she is indeed too hot to handle or not, while Dancing on Ice finalist Miles Nazaire is 3/1 to get some much-needed summer heat after spending several weeks of the year in a freezing cold ice rink.

Omar And Uma In Dumping Contention

Whoever comes in next could be swapping places with Munveer Jabbal, who remains 4/6 favourite on specials betting sites to be the next star dumped from the island. 

He is narrowly in front of Evens second favourite Patsy Field, while Omar is now into 11/8, from 2/1, to go next. 

What's more, after Mimii stole Ayo from her, Uma's price to be dumped next has halved to 2/1 from 4/1. 

Ronnie Vint is also a lot shorter after creating a love triangle between him, Harriett and Jess White. 

He is now just 4/1 to be axed next, from 8/1 at the beginning of the week, while Joey has drifted to 14/1. It doesn't look like he will be heading back to Essex anytime soon.
