Love Island is set to hit our screens in a matter of days – and as the sexy singletons were revealed, some viewers heads have been turned – in the wrong way.
Fans of the show have noticed striking similarities with this years winter line-up and popular Islanders of the past, down to their occupations, personalities and interests.
Several faces who eerily resemble both looks and character from Love Island’s past including Yewande Biala who fans have claimed is another version of this years star Leanne Anaming.
Other viewers have commented on the likeliness of this seasons islander Mike and Gabby Allen’s ex Marcel who was one of the favourites of 2018’s season.
Taking to Twitter , fans shared their grievances about the similarities as one wrote: “What the hell Love Island. All of these are carbon copies of last year’s islanders:.
“Yewande and Leanne are THE SAME PERSON!”
One fan wrote: “This is ridiculous. Why is it always the same type of people? Mike and Marcell might as well have shared the same womb!”.
Mike who is a policeman by profession, also bears similarity to last year’s Michael – in terms of character and profession- who was famous with the Love Island ladies due to the fact he worked sexy fireman outside of the villa.
In this sense, Mike and Michael have been selected by producers not only due to their good looks, but also because of their interesting and unpredictable professions.
Another two comparisons that have been made is between Rochelle Humes sister Sophie Piper and previous star of Love Island Montana Brown, as well as this series Siânnise Fudge and former star Kendal Rae Knight.
The pair do share an undeniable resemblance with their brunette hair, slight figure and face shape.
Their also bears striking resemble in terms of occupation with this year’s Leanne hoping to become a professional makeup artist, while last season’s Amber was known for her incredible makeup skills as a professional.
Scientist Yewnade can also be compared to this season’s Sophie who works as a medial PA. Both stars represent the type of girl chosen for the show by producers.
Last season, fans were left disappointed by the lack of diversity in the line-up after it was previously claimed that people of “all shapes and sizes” would be featured in the show.
Calls for a more representative group of men and women in show were led by former contestants Alexandra Cane and Malin Andersson who both expressed their disappointment over the line-up.
Reacting to the 2019 cast photos, last year’s contestant Cane tweeted: “Where the curvy girls at?” while Love Island 2016 star Andersson, added: “And I thought they would have some diversity. Meh.
After reviewing the latest lineup, some sorely disappointed fans said they felt so disappointed by the lack of body diversity that they threatened to boycott the show while others called for the series to be cancelled.
“This show is becoming a joke now. I don’t even think I’ll bother watching” wrote one fuming fan.
While another simply said: “Cancel this sh*t!”.
