60,000 people have applied to join the next series of ‘Love Island’

Get your applications in pronto….

People who didn’t watch this year’s series of Love Island were like Brexit voters. They definitely exist, but no-one has ever met one. Anyway, there were two bellends on the show called Chris and Kem and, with grim inevitability, they released a rap track when they were back in the wild. The track in question is called ‘Little Bit Leave It’, lifting its title from a catchphrase long associated with grime legend Lethal Bizzle. Reality show leaches: do not grub from the fertile mind of Bizzle.

A staggering 60,000 people have reportedly applied to take part in Love Island next summer, after the ITV dating show became one of the most talked about shows of 2017.

After making its return for a third series at the start of June, the sun-soaked show attracted an average of 2.5 million viewers every night, with fans tuning in to watch the blossoming relationships between contestants including Chris Hughes, Olivia Attwood, Kem Cetinay, and Amber Davies.

Now, thousands of viewers are reportedly attempting to experience Love Island for themselves – with some 60,000 applications being received after casting for the next series opened last week.

Love Island hopefuls must be over 18 and are asked to submit a video that explains why they would make an ideal contestant – along with two photographs, a clear headshot and a full-length image.

“The show’s success last year was unprecedented. Bosses are already working hard to ensure the next series lives up to expectations”, a source told The Sun.

‘They will do their best to sign up ideal islanders from the tens of thousands of wannabes.”

The 2017 series was won by Amber Davies and Kem Cetinay, although their split has since been confirmed.

Cetinay also joined forces with friend and villa mate Chris Hughes for an unlikely foray into grime, releasing single ‘Little Bit Leave It’, which reached number fifteen in the UK charts.
