Love Island has an unexpected fan – and it is none other than Liam Gallagher. Yes, you read that right.
The former Oasis frontman was at Glastonbury over the weekend to perform on the Other Stage. But in an interview with Jo Whiley on Radio 2, he proudly announced that he’d tuned out from the music festival so he could tune in to Love Island.
“I watched Dizzee Rascal from my room,” he explained. “Then I watched Love Island.”
And when an incredulous Whiley responded: “I can’t believe you’re watching Love Island,” Gallagher continued: “Without a doubt. Mate, that’s where it’s at.
“I’ve had four years of doing nothing, you know what I mean? I’ve gotta do something and I’ve gone to the dark side and Love Island it is.”
Other fans of the “dark side” – i.e. ITV2’s hit reality show – were happy to welcome him on board.

Liam Gallagher's a fan of Love Island? Makes me feel at least a tad less guilty for being addicted to the show.

The fact that Liam Gallagher missed Glastonbury performances just to watch #loveisland justifies why I love him so much????????????

But does Gallagher think Jess and Mike secretly hooked up – and what’s his opinion on Jess’s future with Dom? Perhaps he could even enter the show as a celebrity guest? (Though he might have to ditch the parka.)
