Viewers of Love Island are calling for finalist Ovie Soko to have his own TV show.
The 28-year-old basketball player was placed third in Monday night’s final alongside brunette India Reynolds.
He became one of this season’s stand-out stars thanks to his text “message” catchphrase, his towering good looks, love of hats and the fact that he proved chivalry isn’t dead.
In fact, viewers seem to be in mourning over the fact they’ll no longer have a 9pm date with him every evening.
So much so that they’re calling for the star to have his own TV show. And we have to admit, we’d most definitely tune in!
SOMEBODY GIVE OVIE HIS OWN TV SHOW!!!!

Others went so far as to “beg” TV bosses to give the star his own show.
One Twitter user said: “Give him his own cooking show where he can model his hats at the same time or something, I’m begging you.”

Some commented that if Ovie had been in a friendship pairing with Amber till the end, they would’ve scooped the £50k prize.

Yes, Ovie is certainly in demand, with UK chat show host Mo Gilligan of The Lateish Show keen to book the star for next week’s show.

Others predicted a winner’s welcome home to Heathrow and stated that India was a winner simply because she had bagged Ovie.
Some also thanked Anna for brining Ovie back from Casa Amor, saying without her, they wouldn’t have had Ovie in their lives for the past month.
Anna did gods work by bringing ovie into the villa #loveisland
