Love Island fans all have same request as new series is just days away
Love Island fans are hoping to see a shake-up in how bosses cast islanders this year.
When the ITV2 dating show first launched it was filled with people from all across the UK with rarely any link to the showbiz world at all, but as it gained in popularity, so did the use of influencers.

For years fans have been begging them to scrap influencers from the line-up and go back to the "normal people" who kickstarted the series.
However, that changed once Will Young, known on TikTok beforehand as @farmerwill, joined the ITV show and became one of the most beloved male cast members ever.
It's prompted fans to rethink who they want on the show, with one reddit user starting a thread – and many others agreed.
One user wrote: "I'm at a point where I accept influencers are going to be part of the line-up and I'm ok with it. If they bring an outgoing personality and they don't need much direction or prompting to be a character and can be entertaining like Will from season 9.
"Personally I'm not looking for a whole bunch of so called 'real, authentic and relatable' types like last season. I think that's what made it bland."
Another followed it up adding: "I think influencers/content creators like Will can keep it entertaining and less heavy, especially for the first few weeks as they're usually the most comfortable with the cameras straight away."
A third added: "I don't really care if you're an influencer as long as you're entertaining it's fine."
Love Island has had its fair share of "entertainers" on the show over the past few years, but Will certainly became a favourite after stepping into the villa earlier this year.
His participation in Love Island was announced a week before he appeared on screens and his fans were thrilled.
Will creates farming TikTok videos with all the various animals on his farm and grew incredibly popular before he went in the villa.
After coming out of the villa with his girlfriend Jessie Wynter, the pair have been making TikToks together and his fans have only grown more fond of his account.
