Love Island fans hit out at 'sham' all-star cast as line up is revealed

Love Island fans hit out at 'sham' all-star cast as line up is revealed

The new ITV show starts next week

It’s that time of year (already, surprisingly) when a bunch of single people head out to a fancy villa for a flirty holiday in front of a load of cameras.

Yep, it’s Love Island, again. Except after the winter edition was 'axed', ITV are airing a special Love Island All Stars version.

But fans of the dating show don’t all seem absolutely buzzing about it and have hit out at the cast being a ‘sham’.

So, let’s get into the line-up first of all.

In case you’re not getting what this whole ‘All Stars’ thing means, they’re basically bringing back a load of ex-Islanders to have ‘a second chance of love’.

Or, you know, another chance of being on TV for a couple of weeks.

Maya Jama is back hosting the show as islanders from various series of Love Island take part.

Georgia Harrison is part of the line-up, after appearing on series three back in 2017, and spending recent years campaigning to tackle violence against women and girls after ex Stephen Bear was jailed for sharing intimate footage of her.

Then there’s also series five-star Chris Taylor, who has since dated Maura Higgins and appeared in the Barbie film.

Toby Aromolaran and Kaz Kwami from series seven will also be returning to villa, as well as Georgia Steel from series four and Demi Jones from the first winter series back in 2020.

As well as Mitchel Taylor who appeared only recently in series 10, there’s Anton Danyluk from series five.

There’s also Jake Cornish and Liberty Poole from series seven, who split before leaving the show.

They've even got cast members from the first series, such as Hannah Elizabeth who came second after getting engaged on the show, as well as Luis Morrison.

But viewers aren’t all exactly massively excited about this All Stars line-up as one user on X called it ‘weak’.

Another put: “Idk if Ima watch Love Island All Stars I’ll be real. That list looks terrible.”

And one even slammed: “Love Island All Stars cast soo far is sham. Who the hell is Hannah? And what did she bring on season?”

Others wrote: “Ok but where is Ovie cause this cast ain't giving what it was supposed to give…”

Another pointed out: “As I’ve already said, the bombshells could be where the bigger ‘all star’ names are coming in to shake things up.”

One simply called it ‘underwhelming’ as another said it’s the ‘worst cast’ of all time.

Although one wrote: “Think of the memes this year’s cast will give us though.”

But I mean, let’s face it, Love Island fans complain about the show every series before watching it every night for weeks.

Love Island starts at 9pm Monday 15 January on ITV1, ITV2, ITVX and STV.
