It's official: 'Messy Mitch' is returning to the Love Island villa for Love Island: All Stars kicking off on ITV1, ITV2 and ITV2 on Monday 15th January.


Mitch appeared on season 10 last year, but was unsuccessful in finding love despite just missing the final with his partner Ella Barnes. The pair entered a relationship outside of the show, but sadly it wasn't meant to be.

Not long after, Mitch was rumoured to have rekindled things with Abi Moores, as the pair were spotted at an event together.

However, that can't be the case because Mitch is back for another round of Love Island, and he's hoping to shed his nickname. We'll have to see about that!

Why is Mitch returning for Love Island: All Stars?

Apparently, Mitch wants to do things a little differently this time round!

Speaking ahead of his return, Mitch said: "I think I went in with my heart on my sleeve the first time and got hurt and this time I am just going in to enjoy myself and if a connection happens, a connection happens.

"Honestly when I went in for series ten, you saw me and Molly, I went for Molly, I wanted her. And with this one, I am not going to make myself that vulnerable. I am going to play the game."

He continued: "I’ll be honest, I don’t really plan on being 'Messy Mitch'. It just depends on what day of the week it is. I wear my emotions on my sleeve and what you see is what you get. I am very honest and very opinionated and I think that’s what people like me for. If I don’t agree with something, I’m not going to hold it back. "

Love Island All Stars 2024 starts on Monday 15th January at 9pm on ITV1, ITV2 and ITVX.
