Love Island Could Be Set To Feature First Transgender Contestant

(ITV)

Ultimate guilty pleasure show ‘Love Island could be set to welcome their first ever transgender contestant.

Narrator Iain Stirling, the man behind the voiceover, teased the news in a recent tabloid interview with the Daily Star.

“Why not?” he said. “Last year we had a bisexual romance.”

Contestants Katie Salmon and Sophie Gradon broke some ground during the following season after they admitted they had feelings for each other.

In a statement, ITV has so far remained coy on casting decision, saying that none have been confirmed ahead of the forthcoming series due to air this summer.

But Stirling was able to say what we could expect from some of the contestants he came across auditioning for roles recently.

“They were three tattooed bodybuilders with Essex haircuts,” he said.

“I thought, ‘They’re not here for an admin job’.”

Asked which of the contestants he would date if he got the chance, Stirling replied: “If I had to couple up with one of the girls in the villa, it would be Olivia.

“I always liked Olivia from day one because she seems like quite a laugh as well.”
