Love Island 2019 cast and line up

The producers and bosses over at ITV2 keep their top secret cast under wraps for as long as possible before the show, but rumours have already started.

Rumour has it, the producers are lining up smaller reality TV stars such as Ercan Ramadan from The Only Way Is Essex's Marbella spin-off, though his new relationship with Vicky Pattison may throw a spanner in the works.

An insider told a tabloid, "Love Island casting agents are approaching people with low-level fame to take part in this year’s show. Ercan was approached by casting producers in January.

"They told him he'd be a perfect fit for the show and that they really wanted him on board. He knows it would be good for his career but he's with Vicky now, so he's not sure how to play it.

"It's a total U-turn after Love Island bosses binned reality stars for the last series.But this year they know exactly who they want on the show. Everyone on Love Island must have a strong influence on social media - it's key to the success of the show."

Another name that has been bandied about for the show is bisexual Instagram star Braelin Kail Peery, who claims has been approached by producers.
