Have we had any hint yet of where it will be?

TheDuchessOfBeddington Thu 17-Jun-21 02:59:14

Any social distancing or masks this year? Or will they just do the sensible thing and isolate all contestants and test test test before they get into the villa??

DavidTheDog Thu 17-Jun-21 07:09:58

Hints that it is Mallorca again @TitsInAbsentia

I hope there are no masks. I want escapism.

I've watched a previous series but have to say I cannot stand Whitmore. She takes herself so very seriously, have you seen her being interviewed? She actually revealed her baby was a girl herself publicy but when Lorraine congratulated her on her dd due soon she got all sniffy with her for saying baby girl 🙄

Anywayyy. A bit of lighthearted silliness to watch is maybe what we all need at the moment!

I'm in for Love Island but I also don't like Laura Whitmore - takes herself far too seriously and also seems to forget where she came from regarding celebrity gossip in her early career etc!

I do think Iain is funny and love his commentary though!

Really hope they have no mention of Covid on it at all - fingers crossed they have all isolated together and so there is no need for any measures!


IHaveBrilloHair Thu 17-Jun-21 14:24:23

I don't like her either, so up her own arse.
She was awful to a journalist over her baby's name.

paniniswapx3 Thu 17-Jun-21 16:13:00

That's true @IHaveBrilloHair - totally went after her in a very unkind way! Seemed to be encouraging her followers to pile onto her!

IHaveBrilloHair Thu 17-Jun-21 16:16:43

I know journos don't have the best reputation but I honestly couldn't see anything that she'd said wrong.

IHaveBrilloHair Thu 17-Jun-21 16:45:47

Actually just after the first series of LI, Iain did stand up at Edinburgh Festival.
My BF went to his show and he put a sign on stage saying, "I will not talk about LI"
I didn't watch back then so didn't think much of it but now, WTF?
Er sure, that's where most of your money and fame comes from.

sweatervest Thu 17-Jun-21 16:57:56

i can't wait.
my dd says that it's mostly influencers and kids of celebs - apparently gordon ramsay's daughter too? - who are going on it? i don't know where dd gets her info from but i'm taking anything i can re: love island.

can't bloody wait.
agree am not a fan of whitmore. she seems to lack personality and niceness. emily atack would be far better, says me.

JaniieJones Thu 17-Jun-21 16:59:54

The pair of them filmed themselves being filmed by a pap at an airport, after Caroline Flack's death. Clearly wrong and intrusive but they were both saying 'we are grieving and this man is filming us!!!!'. All seemed very odd.

They seem be the 'look at us!/don't look at us!!' celebs.

'emily atack would be far better, says me.'

Totally agree.

paniniswapx3 Thu 17-Jun-21 17:50:41

Emily Atack is a great shout - would love her to do it!

Vodkabulary Thu 17-Jun-21 17:54:33

Cannot wait! LI is my guilty pleasure and got me through a very long induction with my middle one during a heatwave in 2018 grin

I used to like Whitmore but I didn’t like her attacking the person over her baby name and also recently she posted a picture of her out in the park Muslin full on covering the car seat with the baby. People
Pointed out it’s a risk for over heating and she attacked again (there was no visible gap).

PennyRoyal Thu 17-Jun-21 18:05:54

Got my bikini and beach bod ready... (nah, not really but I can pretend!). Love a bit of trashy escapism 💙🏝

IHaveBrilloHair Thu 17-Jun-21 18:30:19

I saw that too.
Im guessing we read the same thread?grin
She also wasn't remotely sensitive about Caroline Flack's death.

DavidTheDog Thu 17-Jun-21 19:08:23

@PennyRoyal Never say never, we'll both have veneers and fillers before September.

Checking in! Love me a bit of summer trash grin

IHaveBrilloHair Thu 17-Jun-21 20:08:22

I have bought this bikini.

dane8 Thu 17-Jun-21 20:17:29

I’m in, can’t wait to get hooked into something again every night 😀

Nightfeedwatcher Thu 17-Jun-21 20:28:42

I can’t wait, was getting a bit bored of it after the last series but after this crappy year I can’t wait to watch a bit of drama in the sun ☀️

DavidTheDog Thu 17-Jun-21 21:32:29

@IHaveBrilloHair for watching Love Island?

OP’s posts: |
IHaveBrilloHair Thu 17-Jun-21 22:14:16

I'm joking!
@PennyRoyal said she had a bikini and I wanted one too!
I haven't actually bought it, no one needs to see me in bikini.grin
