NEXT MONTH ON LOVE ISLAND....
ITV clearly want us all to just stay indoors for the rest of our lives, don't they? Like all those lockdowns weren't enough. But what choice do we have? With winter Love Island now an annual fixture, TOWIE constantly bringing the drama AND the regular summer Love Island still vibing around doing its thing – that's it; no more social life.
With less than a month to go before Love Island returns to our screens for a second time this year, the rumours are flying in fast and furious; the latest coming in the form of series ten's second rumoured OG contestant and our first rumoured girl.
Meet Chloe Baker, who is definitely not Chloe Burrows or Zara McDermott, but is probably – according to the latest swirling rumours – going to be one of the first girls to set foot into the Majorcan villa on 5 June (well, we think it's 5 June – producers and ITV are being characteristically cagey with us media folk).
It's claimed Love Island bosses have their set their sights on PrettyLittleThing, Lipsy London, and Missy Empire model (of course) and influencer, Chloe, as according to the MailOnline, she was looking like a serious contender for the winter series back in early January (despite never slow-mo walking through those doors).
Fair play, this isn't a lot to go on, but some of the signs are definitely already there on her Instagram grid: she's clearly culled some of the pictures on her page (as what influencer has less than 250 grid snaps?), she's pinned her top three sexy snaps to the top of her grid, and she's jetted off somewhere hot – Dubai in this case – to top off the tan before spending weeks on ITV2 night after night. Chloe also looks like a hybrid of every blonde Islander ever, so, yeah... We shall see...
Last week, a lovely lad called Andre Furtado became a household name – well, amongst us Love Island fans – after he became the first soon-to-be-star rumoured for the summer villa.
According to the Daily Mail, Andre is the "perfect" contestant with a source saying, "He's cool, calm, collected, and ready to mingle...
"Producers are hoping his intellect, as well as his creativity and handsome looks will make him a favourite among the females."
The speculation surrounding Andrew comes shortly after Love Island's rumoured start date.
Insiders have reportedly told The Sun that the summer series is kicking off at the beginning of June – which, btw, is only four weeks away.
The source told the publication, "Love Island will start on June 5, just as people are getting ready to enjoy their summers.
"ITV have already lined up the Islanders who will be heading to the show’s villa in Majorca. The cast will fly out late next month ready for the show to begin in just eight weeks."
However a second source told the publication, "The dates have not been officially confirmed."
We love you, Kai and Sanam, but our souls are already ready for this. We'll start cancelling our summer plans now...

What time is Love Island on TV?
Just like all the previous years, Love Island will air on ITV2 at 9pm every weekday and on Sundays. Most episodes last one hour, but for some of the juicer moments they're a little longer.
Saturdays will be reserved for unseen bits.
In other words, you can't go outside this summer.
How do I watch Love Island?
As well as watching on live TV (imagine!) you can also view Love Island on ITVX.
If you fancy re-watching every single episode from series one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight and nine, then you can. Live your best life.
Has anyone ever kept the money on Love Island?
The Love Island stars can be pretty savage in the villa but surprisingly none of the contestants have ever kept the money for themselves.
They always share and we doubt anyone would actually ever keep the money because it might damage their 'brand' after leaving the show.
But you know what they say - never say never.
Who is the voice over guy for Love Island?
If your highlight of Love Island is hilarious voice over guy, who loves to throw shade at the contestants, then look no further than Scottish presenter Iain Stirling – who, fun fact, is married to former host Laura Whitmore.
Which Love Island couples are still together?
None of them.
We're JOKING. Although, there are only a few Love Island couples that have actually managed to make it work on the outside world.
At present, Will Young and Jessie Wynter, Tanya Manhenga and Shaq Muhammad, Ron and Lana, and Kai and Sanam from winter Love Island 2023 are all still going strong. Wholesome stuff. What's your secret, guys? Don't say, 'Going on Love Island'.
