The odds hint that this series will be a summer sex-fest, with Ladbrokes offering odds of 2/1 that contestants will have sex in the first week.
It’s also, it’s 10/1 that they will be getting steamy within the first 24 hours.
Spokesman Alex Apati told the Daily Star: “By going on a show like Love Island, contestants have already shown they’re open-minded and perhaps more liberal, so we’re expecting this year’s batch to be no different when it comes to going all the way on TV.”
Producers are prepared for racy scenes to sky-rocket as lockdown restrictions made it hard for singletons to date.

Love Island alumni Olivia Attwood is also predicting that the new islanders will be more keen than ever to have fun beneath the sheets thanks to being deprived during lockdown.
She said earlier this week: “We’ve all been locked up and everyone is looking to blow off some steam.
“In general, this could be a really good summer to be single and enjoying yourself.
“It’ll be good for the viewers if Love Island goes that way.

“The new series will be the perfect escapism from everything that is going on in the world at the moment and provide some light relief.”
Meanwhile, former Lover Islander Wes Nelson has defended having sex in the villa after newbies are warned against it.
He admitted that it was “fine” to have on-screen romps, saying that he doesn’t believe his sex life in the villa has negatively affected his post-show career.

In an interview with FUBAR’s Stephen Leng on Access All Areas, he said: “I did it and I was fine! This is the thing. People can say, ‘Don’t do this. Don’t do that!’ There are no dos or don’ts. Just do you. It’s literally that simple.”
Wes insisted that having a “game plan” over having “fun” would also get them kicked out the villa.
He continued: “Like people sometimes think, they get it confused with, ‘Oh, I can go on Love Island and get this career after, and this, that and the other.’
“And nine times out of ten, they’re the people that come out within a week because they’ve got this game plan and people see straight through it.”
