Iain Stirling hints Love Island could be filmed in the UK this summer

The voiceover star has revealed bosses are eager to bring the show back

Iain Stirling has hinted Love Island could be filmed in the UK this summer.

The comedian, who narrates the popular ITV2 series, is hoping the show will return in 2021, after the summer series was cancelled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk, the 32-year-old said: “Hey, let’s see what happens…”

“Like I said, I’ve no idea, but it could be quite amusing seeing Love Island contestants embracing the beaches of Bognor Regis at some point.”

“When they can’t eat their dinner because seagulls are taking it off the plateā€¦ it could mix it up.”

Iain said he loved the 2020 series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, which was filmed at Gwrych Castle in Wales last year, instead of it’s usual location in Australia.

“I genuinely thought I’m A Celeb was so brilliant this year, it’s an option,” he confessed.

“I’m A Celeb did such a good job, man. It was so funny and such a good season.”

Last year, ITV’s director of television Kevin Lygo said they would consider filming Love Island at an alternative location in 2021.

Kevin said: “If we couldn’t do it in Majorca, well, maybe we’ll have to do it like we’ve done with I’m A Celeb, find a new place to do it…”

“Because then it would have been off a long time and that would be a shame. We need it.”
