Marcel Somerville has made a statement about his changing skin tone in the Love Island villa.
Posting on Instagram, the London-based musician – who placed fourth in the popular reality show – shared a cute selfie of himself as he posed with his Love Island promo shot in the ITV offices.
In a humble caption, he wrote: “Back in the building #homesweethome can’t believe I’m home after 8 weeks!!! Done my final press at itv now I’m chillin!”

However, it was the reality icon’s closing statement which really caught the eyes of fans, as he added: “What a difference a villa makes!!! Def caught a tan #loveisland #marcel.”
Stood next to his promo image, Marcel, who spent 7 weeks in the Majorcan sun, looked visibly more bronzed than he had done previously.
Having spotted the difference, several of his fans were quick to comment, with many pointing out how his tattoos had ‘disappeared’ thanks to his tan.

Marcel’s tattoos became something of a public mystery after fans thought he had been replaced by an ‘imposter’ in the villa.
The rumours of a ‘villa imposter’ had surfaced when viewers of the show noticed a beard and some arm inkings – features which were not so visible in the daylight due to Marcel’s tan.
However, it soon became apparent that Gabby Allen was not sleeping next to a handsome stranger, but was, in fact, enjoying the company of her beautiful boyfriend Marcel.
