Love Island producers planning ‘follow up series’ to see if islanders stay together

The show finale will air next Monday

Love Island has been a massive success this year and the show’s bosses are in talks of bringing in a “follow up series” which will see if the islanders have stayed together once they leave the villa.

The ITV2 romantic reality series rakes in millions of viewers every single night and it seems bosses want to carry on the show’s success.

According to reports the producers want to see whether the stronger couples on the show will be able to keep it up on the outside.

A source told The Sun: “Some relationships will be nothing more than a summer holiday romance but there’s some that are going to last a lot longer.

“Each of the couples have already been pushed to the limits in a very false environment and once they’re back home, they will have more time to themselves away from the camera.

“There are already discussions behind the scenes as to doing a follow-up series later this year where viewers can see if islanders have stayed together at home – and whether they’re following in the footsteps of last year’s couples like [2016 contestants] Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen.

“It’s a no brainer for Love Island bosses to do a follow-up as the show has been a runaway success and everyone’s desperate to see more of their favourite couples.”

With the grand final fast approaching the couples are already planning their futures on the outside.

During last night’s show Olivia Attwood and Chris Hughes were planning to move in together once they return to the UK.

Meanwhile Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies, who have been a strong couple throughout the series, spoke about meeting each other’s families once they return home.

Fan favourites Camilla Thurlow and Jamie Jewitt have also spoken about their future outside the villa and admitted they’re excited to see where it goes.

Last night Alex Beattie confessed his love for Montana Brown but she admitted she can’t say it back. But the pair are looking forward to seeing where their relationship progresses to after the show.

Gabby Allen and Marcel Somerville, who have dropped in popularity over the last few days, were definitely favourites to win the show but viewers have turned on blonde beauty Gabby branding her “fake”.

Earlier on in the series the couple made their relationship official after former Blazin Squad hunk Marcel asked Gabby to be his girlfriend.

And viewers were loving the couple so much TV bosses even started discussing giving the pair their own spin-off show once they leave the villa.

A source at the TV station told the Daily Star: “There has been a lot of interest in Gabby and Marcel having their own reality series.

“Bosses think it would be a massive hit and are hoping the pair agree.”

The show has been full of drama over the past seven weeks and tensions have started to rise in the final days.

Earlier this week the girls all took lie detectors and were asked questions by their partners.

But it caused major tension between Gabby and the rest of the girls.

Gabby admitted she wasn’t in love with Marcel which left her fellow islanders and viewers completely shocked.

And after the lie detector was wrapped up Gabby admitted she felt she had no support from her pals.

During a day out with the girls outside of the villa Gabby broke down.

She said: “Honestly, I was so gutted because not even just for myself but for Marcel. I didn’t want him to be humiliated or upset by the thing.

“Then I just felt like when I came out, I would have a strong support system. There was definitely some people that had my back but it was, basically really cold.”

The final is definitely going to be a close call. But who will take the crown and win the series?

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
