It’s that time of the year again; Love Island is coming back to our screens on ITV2.

If you’ve been living under a rock for the past several years, Love Island is a dating reality show where participants enter to find love in a secluded villa in Majorca, Spain.

In the 2019 season, boxer Tommy Fury had found his soulmate Molly Mae in the villa and looked firm favourites to win that season. A shock result saw Amber Grill and Greg O’Shea win the £50,000 cash prize in the finale of a drama-packed season.

Participants who enter the villa have no access to social media or their phones. They are completely isolated from the outside world so that their judgements of finding love can be as genuine as possible.

Latecomer Tom Walker, however, accidentally spilt the beans to his fellow love islanders that Anthony Joshua had lost his fight to Andy Ruiz Jr.

Joshua was stopped in the seventh round by Ruiz, a shock result for many in the boxing community, including Tommy, who couldn’t hide his shock and excitement.

With no surprise, Tommy was starstruck once being told by Walker of the latest news coming out of Madison Square Garden. The announcement came as a huge surprise for Tommy, hearing that fellow British boxer AJ had lost his bout in the ring.

“Oh my God, I don’t believe it,” Tommy said.

The fellow British boxer is looking to replicate the success of his older brother Tyson Fury and is a big boxing fan himself; he was astounded upon hearing the news.

Joshua was expected to fight Jarrell Miller, however, a later failed drugs test meant Andy Ruiz Jr took the fight, an opponent that many expected AJ to beat comfortably.

The new season of Love Island starts next Monday, with the lineup announced today (May 30).

A season that should bring plenty of drama and action as Michael Owen’s daughter Gemma Owen is set to star for this year’s edition.

Gemma is already a celebrity due to her massive following on Instagram and being related to the ex-Liverpool star. She has already insisted that she’s not afraid to step on some toes to find her perfect man.
