This is how popular each Love Island 2023 finalist is, based on their Instagram followers

It’s quite telling!


The Love Island final is right around the corner and like every year, viewers are desperately counting down the hours until the new winners of the show are crowned. This season has been a season like no other, there has been drama, love and a lot more drama than anyone could think of and now it’s down to one final vote.

The winners are crowned based on how many votes they get from the public, which is often down to how popular each couple is with the public. This final couldn’t be more of a close call, whether the public has rallied behind one couple or just one person, there is just no saying who could win the show this year.

But if we take a look at popularity of each contestant based on how popular they are on social media, it could give a good idea as to who could take that £50,000 home. So, here’s a look at just how popular each Love Island finalist is based on how many Instagram followers they have.
