IRISH ACTRESS and broadcaster Laura Whitmore is the bookies' favourite to replace Caroline Flack as the presenter of Love Island for the upcoming series.
The Wicklow native, who has been romantically linked to Love Island narrator Iain Stirling since 2017, is rated at 6/4.
She is the most likely to snap up the coveted position, which has remained open since Caroline Flack stepped down following a media storm after being charged with assault on her partner.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson tipped Whitmore as Flack's replacement, saying "The Flack will not be back for the nest series of Love Island, and there is certainly not a shortage of suitors [for] the top job.
"Laura Whitmore, the partner of the show's beloved narrator Iain Stirling, is the current favourite to host the upcoming series in South Africa.
[Whitmore] certainly has big shoes to fill, so the pressure would be on the Irish actress should she be given the gig."
We reckon she'd be well able-- in fact, according to The Sun, Whitmore has already been in 'secret talks' with ITV bosses about taking over.
Irish people stole the show in last summer's series, with Maura Higgins being one of the most popular members, and Limerick native Greg winning the whole show despite only spending a fraction of time on the island.
Winter Love Island is due to start airing on January 8th of next year, meaning it won't be long before the new presenter is revealed.
