  • Yes.

  • It's gonna be on your screens on the fifth of June.

  • Eyes that is just over a week away.

  • Which is very sorry.

  • Now I believe we have got a little trailer which you're gonna take a quick, sneaky look at nine is great.

  • More rain on the way way.

  • Love islands Back to take over your summer exclusively on ITV too.

  • A couple of my absolute favorites if they're not on the island this year, I'm gonna be really disappointed if I don't tell you that yet?

  • Now you tell us.

  • Get ready for the heat wave.

  • And we've heard it's gonna be the sexiest love island we've ever had.

  • So what can you tell us that we're going to expect from licious?

  • Well, the thing is, you don't really know, you know, we've already we've got contestants we've got.

  • Um I can't say how many.

  • We got the people.

  • We're gonna compare it to the villa initially.

  • Then Obviously, there's always gonna be people we're gonna put in afterwards, but you just don't know what's gonna happen till they go in.

  • So you've met the contestants, right?

  • Or you know that I have seen the contestant.

  • I've seen their cast in tapes like their interviews.

  • Andi, I'd secretly I just sneaked into one of the photo shoots of the Dancel.

  • I actually saw one of the guys in the flesh and he was hot.

  • Someone that's called ahead.

  • Alos tattoos.

  • Obviously, my boys have had a really, like big job willing them down this because you've had, like, a record number of like people applying this year, we had over 60,000 applied to be in Love Island, which is a lot, but it's even Maur when we had 16,000 apply last year.

  • So it's gone up so much.

  • A lot of single people around these two single people lost people who want to be in love and lost.

  • People who want to be maybe in a villa on telling you said, There's someone that's called your eye there But is that not call my eyes just just any hard?

  • Okay, change my way.

  • But how is so?

  • If emotionally invested, you get in the contestants, You kind of root for them like, Is there any in the past that you particularly wanted to cheer on?

  • Yeah, I think because I see them go into the other and know things they're gonna change when they come out.

  • Everything.

  • I mean, it's like when helping brother used to be your X factor.

  • I was the same with the X factor contestants, you know, life changes dramatically and really fast, and I think I do feel particularly protective over the girls, like on the older sister.

  • And I saw a pre warned them for what?

  • What to expect, you know, especially last year.

  • I know you remember Zara who I felt was quite unfairly treated I miss great Britain.

  • I don't mind saying that only because she didn't have a voice to speak and they very publicly took her title away without telling her on.

  • We all knew and everyone knew she didn't know she was in that house all in a row.

  • And I think someone needed to be her voice.

  • So I felt really protective in Zara.

  • So that was very unfair.

  • And then it just in general, even with Terry, even though with what Terry did tamale in which we were very angry about, I knew that he was gonna come out to a barrage of tweets and nasty things because we do get very involved in it s so I just said to him, Terry, look, there's gonna visa stuff online.

  • Whatever you do, don't respond.

  • Like just don't hate it.

  • Is it difficult?

  • Like cause you're the host And I guess you have to, like, kind of remain impartial, right?

  • Is it?

  • This are difficult, like you kind of like art mailer.

  • Don't get with him.

  • He's terrible, like I will be.

  • I will.

  • There's death.

  • I'm definitely a view as well.

  • I'm not just don't think I watches of you as well as a host, and I get really invested.

  • But I have to have my professional hat.

  • Has to stay on.

  • And I have to.

  • I can't have favorites.

  • I don't think that reefer wherever boys me.

  • And I'll be like he's made.

  • Definitely.

  • If there's been any contested in the past that you just really no really rated their behavior in that villa.

  • Um, I don't want to offend anybody.

  • Shame, Caroline.

  • I don't want to I don't know what it changes.

  • I just was my foot from you one.

  • I mean, just went, just walked in and people were a bit unsure if I want.

  • Then she was, you know, she was a little bit heartbroken, and Josh was a bit mean to head.

  • Oh, no, me came here, know me.

  • She was She was the one.

  • Uh, but, you know, it was a TV show, and they're playing a game now.

  • How do you think that if you weren't in the public eye, would you consider a show like Love Island is?

  • This isn't something that you would try out.

  • Would you want to go on?

  • When I was younger, I was, like, 18 to 24 on Someone said, Here's a 10 week holiday in a villa in New Yorker.

  • Would you like to go with loads of really hot guys?

  • I probably Oh, yeah.

  • Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah.

  • How do you think you felt?

  • Way?

  • See, the contestants kind of like play the game as well.

  • So some fall in love and some kind of a play it quite tactic.

  • They see, I I would not be out to hide my feelings for anyone or no, no, even that would be worse.

  • I can't act normal around someone that I like, you know?

  • And you could be really cool and around people you don't Suddenly you have feeling someone, and you just turn into the most uncle pass.

  • Never.

  • Yeah, I hear you.

  • Thank you.

  • What do you make of those kind of contestants that do you play the game?

  • Is that is that part of part of the show or does that kind of annoy?

  • I don't know.

  • I don't If it does, I don't think you can only have a showman for so long.

  • I think you'd have to be an incredibly good actor or actress to keep that up for a long time, you know, and I just don't think they do everything as soon as you get into somewhere.

  • It's like with any other reality show.

  • You do kind of let your guard down and you forget and things happen.

  • Emotions start happening, and that's what's so good about it, cause it's genuine emotion and we see it.

  • I guess we have to have the love triangle last year as well with Katie and Tom and Sophie last Well, which it was amazing to watch unfold, but I kind of Israel emotions on the end of the line for a lot of these contestants at the end of the day, right?

  • Yeah.

  • Tom, remember Tom?

  • I mean, Tom really like.

  • So if he didn't really, like, really like Sophie, he would not let it go.

  • Okay, Sophie, what?

  • Them reminded you of you sometime when someone's a bit too heavy in a relationship and you just need them to take a step back a little bit.

  • You could see where Sophie was coming from.

  • A swell.

  • So all those situations just add up to situations you boys you've been in and you relate to it.

  • It's nice lashes whether we had Katie and Sophie, who kind of represented sort of the LGBT community is.

  • Well, I think that's something that we're gonna Seymour of this Siri's things cost.

  • I don't I can't say anything until Monday the fifth.

  • When you see them go in, I can't say who's going in.

  • So we're gonna get to find out who they are before they go into where they literally that we're gonna be unveiled on kind of.

  • We will see pictures and we will have names.

  • And I'm sure the press will do that.

  • Do the job of finding out little stories about people, can't have anything.

  • So that's I think, what you know.

  • And then we'll just see it happen on the fifth.

  • But the show's become such a massive hit for ITV to last year's.

  • So what kind of over taping brother, which was insane, was kind of expecting that success for the show.

  • When you signed up?

  • Well, I'd watch the one with Fern used to house back in the celebrity celebrity Love island s O.

  • I knew there was a former in it that I liked.

  • And then when we did the kind of pilot and we tested it out on the first serious.

  • I was like, This is good And then as it went on, you couldn't really tell.

  • But by the end of the first series, I knew it was gonna be it.

  • Definitely because it was just had a good former on Love Island as well.

  • Like you say, we had it sort of 10 15 years ago when it was the celebrity version.

  • Would you like to see another celebrity version?

  • You know, I think what's good about this is it's relatable on.

  • I think it's one of the is rarity, actually, that there's a reality show that actually works better with people we don't know because we get to know them and that's what we relate to.

  • And we feel like I've done that or I could do that and I could be on this next year, and I think that's really good.

  • We know we've got a question for the audience from a Love Island found.

  • But before I ask that I want to ask you if someone was to come back to Love Island either celebrity version, so maybe poured in on or from the last two series, who would you bring back and why.

  • Mmm.

  • Um, you know what?

  • I'd quite like to just throw Terry back in there because I've never seen like, such a reaction from a group of girls over Terri on.

  • When I saw him, I thought, Yeah, he's all right.

  • But sonny to win in that the girls were like crazy over him, didn't they?

  • Like with that neck tattooed neck?

  • Like people loved him.

  • Andi, he's a bit of a star, so I think he'd stare up a few things in this.

  • We've heard that Katie could be going back as well, right?

  • Is that true?

  • Is that is that just a rumor?

  • At this day?

  • Everything's room is in a minute.

  • Everything is Remus, right?

  • Who has got a question for Caroline or Love?

  • Island High.

  • Hi, Caroline.

  • Um, if you could be cast away with any three celebs love island, who would they be on?

  • Why?
