An insider told OK! Online that none of the Love Island couples were ‘bigger than’ the show [ITV]
The match-making TV show’s hashtag trends on Twitter daily, with viewers rushing to the social media site to discuss the shocking antics of the villa’s residents.
However, it seems the stars may not go far after being booted off Love Island after an insider blasted the 2017 participants of the show.
A source told OK! Online: “This year it’s clear that there is not a core cast of stars and nobody is going to be bigger than the show.”
They went on to compare this year’s couple’s to the cast of previous seasons, highlighting potential tactics bosses may have used to keep the show at the forefront.

“On last year’s show they gathered a bunch of good looking people and mainly just kept the same group in the villa, but this is Love Island and with everybody talking about it, the show’s bosses have made it clear that the programme itself is the biggest and most important thing this year,” the insider admitted.
They also made it very clear that none of the couples stand a chance of succeeding against the hit show’s tactics.
Speaking of the villa’s recent heartbreaking split, which left Camilla Thurlow in tears, they said: “It’s a shame Camilla and Jonny broke up, but that’s the nature of the show.”
Adding: “They want to keep bringing in new people and dumping the contestants so that the show stays fresh.”

With plenty of twists in the pipeline, the couples are in for a bumpy ride and are likely to have no idea what show bosses will do next.
Explaining how replacable each of the show’s contestants are, the source said: “Love Island is bigger than Jamilla or Gabby and Marcel, so who knows how long anyone will last before they get dumped and replaced by a newbie.”
Iain Sterling dropped a huge bombshell on Wednesday’s show announcing that the villa will soon be welcoming eleven new boys and girls.
He boomed: “Relationships face the ultimate test. New boys, new girls and a brand new villa.”
