Love Island's Ovie Soko defends cast having their heads turned

Former Love Island star Ovie Soko reckons that fans should place the blame on the producers for islanders having their heads turned.

Over recent weeks, audiences have seen Callum Jones do a 180 from Shaughna Phillips, and even Finley Tapp be tempted (for a second) away from Paige Turley.

But rather than digging out the contestants for their wandering eyes, Ovie believes that the show’s bosses should take the hit.

‘Even when you’ve found someone you’re really comfortable with, the producers and people who run the show will throw someone in there just to throw a spanner in the works,’ he exclusively told

‘At the end of the day, if everyone found someone they liked, that wouldn’t be good TV, would it?

‘I think the public, rather than blaming the people in there, should blame the show more when they see these spanners in the works.’

Ovie, who’s been enlisted as Just Eat’s Love Island Insider’s alongside Amer Gill, continued: ‘It’s their job to throw someone else in there they think you might like because it’s good TV.

‘It’s their job to create these moments so they don’t exactly make it ideal for any couple to live happily-ever-after in the villa.

‘You shouldn’t blame the characters, you should blame the show.’

Audiences have also seen Shaughna confess her feelings for Luke Mabbott in recent scenes.

Revealing his thoughts on the bombshell, which aired earlier this week, Ovie added: ‘All I can say of that is what we see on the outside is one hour of a 24 hour day.

‘Those guys are around each other all day every day. So, the other 23 hours that we don’t get to see, who knows.

‘They could possibly be spending time around each other and something could be going there.’

He makes a fair point…

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
