Love Island 2019: Amy gives heartbreaking speech as she leaves villa

The Love Island final takes place tonight (Monday 29 July), with the remaining four couples set to compete for public votes.

After months of tears, tantrums and pool-side parties, this series of the reality dating show is about to reach its conclusion, and one couple will walk away with the £50,000 prize.

There has been plenty for fans to talk about, whether it was the Lucie-Joe-Tommy love triangle right at the beginning of the series, to Tom's epic blunder when Maura overheard him telling the "lads" he wanted to find out if she was "all mouth".

Then there was the Casa Amor switch-up that introduced six new boys and six new girls to the island, leading Michael to betray Amber and hook up with Joanna, while Curtis broke Amy's heart when he admitted he had asked Jourdan if she would couple up with him.

More magical moments came during the "meet the parents" segment in the penultimate episode, which showed Curtis’s mum being physically incapable of saying Maura’s name correctly, no matter how many times her son screamed it at her (she kept saying “Moira”).

Gifts were given: Amber got a clover necklace from Greg’s mum, which might bring them luck for the final, while Anton’s mum presented his girlfriend Belle with a razor – passing the baton, you could say – to shave his buttocks with.

And finally, Anton and Belle became the last couple to be voted off the show. Four couples remain: Tommy and Molly-Mae, Amber and Greg, Curtis and Maura* (not Moira), and Ovie and India.

The Love Island final airs live tonight on ITV2 at 9pm
