Love Island winners warning to other contestants – take the fifty grand

The wait is almost over for Love Island 2021, and it's almost time for the Islanders to enter the villa.

The singletons will be looking for the person they want to ‘couple up’, and it's important to choose wisely, because not only do they have a chance of finding love – but also winning the £50,000 cash prize at the end.

In the ITV2 reality show, singletons take part in tasks, games and there is usually a whole lot of drama for viewers to watch as they continue to "crack on" with each other.

Contestants change couples at fire pit recouplings – and can be dramatically be “dumped” or eliminated from the island.

The remaining couples who make it to the final are voted by the public in order to crown the winners.

Once the winning couple is announced they have the decision to either choose love or money.

Putting their new relationship to the test the couple each pick an envelope, one with £0 and the other with the £50,000 prize.

The person who receives the £50,000 must decide whether to split their money with their other half or keep it for themselves.

This final test really determines whether it was all a game – or was it for love.

Love island first aired for two seasons between 2005 and 2006. It rebooted in 2015, and started producing many new reality stars including: Dani Dyer, Molly-Mae Hague, Olivia Buckland, Maura Higgins and Chris Hughes.

Couples have left the villa and later parted their separate ways, but did anyone ever steal the cash prize?
