Love Island bosses don’t care about ‘fame seekers’ who dumped their spouses for the ITV2 dating show.
Wannabe Islanders who signed up to appear on the show are said to be keeping their relationships a secret in an attempt to become famous by going to the mansion in search of love, despite being no longer single.
Based on Sunsome potential stars have even given up their other half for a spot on the show, but bosses are said to have been aware of the stealth tactics used by desperate candidates and removed it.
A source told the magazine that a budding contestant, in the final stages of negotiations with Love Island’s bosses, had promised her partner that they would “get back together” later. when he ends his time on the show.
Bosses must now remind islanders that they “don’t care about fame seekers”, and that those who are not really looking for love should stay in the UK, rather than leave the West Spain.
“They understand the Islanders very well, who think the show is a quick solution to fame and fortune. As always, Love Island bosses cast single Islanders looking for love,” the source explained.
“Nothing else will fly with them. Viewers tune in to see relationships blossom, it’s as simple as that,” they added.
A spokesperson for the show said: “Our only stipulation is that Islanders must be over 18, single and looking for love.”
An intensive casting process that involves potential cast members being tested for their relationship status.
Bosses are said to want to avoid the scandal that plagued the show last year, when Lucinda Strafford allegedly let a boyfriend secretly care for her dog at home.
Fans claim she is dating soccer player Aaron Connolly, and Brad McClelland was criticized for making comments about Lucina trying to raise her profile while in the mansion.
While no official start date has yet been confirmed, it is expected that Love Island will return to our screens on Monday, June 6.
