Love Island: Aftersun

As we all know, Love Island doesn't air on Saturdays. We never really questioned why this happens, except that maybe the audience would be out living their lives on Saturday nights instead of staying in?

I mean, we'd still be game for watching it of course. Any day of the week.

However, it turns out the Islanders actually have a day off on Saturdays, without microphones. None of them are allowed to speak about the show at all, it's all about their home life so that nothing new happens off-screen. 

The intensities of the Majorcan villa are probably a lot to handle 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Islanders are handed a break from relaxing in order to relax, basically…? 

Former contestant Kem Cetinay revealed what happens during the Saturday break while appearing on This Morning. 

He told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield that the show's producers take them out of the villa/compound to the beach, which is fairly gas. It's like they're in summer camp.

He said, "They get one day off a week. What happens is it gives them a day to clean the villa and you take your mics off and normally we go to the beach and we just chill out.

"Not a lot of people know this. What happens is when you take your mics off, you’re not allowed to talk about anything to do with the show. You’ve got to talk about home life," Kem continued.

"You’re being watched by the producers because they don’t want you to talk about what’s going on." Phillip Schofield was absolutely shooketh at this revelation.

Kem also mentioned that there are strict rules about what the islanders can discuss during their day off, which is pretty weird.

"You can all sit and chat but they are quite careful about what you talk about because they want to keep it so everyone at home can see and get it on video," he explained. "It’s more a day off from all the intense games, all the intense dates, deciding who you like and don’t like."

Ex-Islander Chris Williamson previously said on his podcast: "Once a week we were allowed to leave the villa and weren’t filmed so none of the viewers would ever know.

"There was a day every week when footage wasn’t needed, which was liberating as you could talk about anything." It sounds a bit too like a cult, doesn't it?

Who is the latest sh*t-stirring good-looking person to be chucked inside the Love Island villa? Danny Williams, that's who. He's already starting a love triangle.

The 21-year-old is a model from Hull, and is exceptionally confident. No surprises there.

In a teaser which aired at the end of Friday's episode, Danny said:

"I would describe myself as a happy-go-lucky guy. I think I'm funny, I can be, but definitely someone who's ambitious and knows what they want."

He added; "I don't think I fall in love easily because I think I have high standards. I think the right girl for me would be ambitious, independent and have loads of fun as well."

Danny's Instagram describes him as a 'fashion model", with a bio saying, "Work hard, be nice." He's really transforming the world of philosophy there, isn't he.

Williams has chosen to go on a date with both Amber and Yewande, which will go ahead in tonight's episode. Drama is to be expected, but we suspect he'll suit Amber more. They both have that ego thing going on…

Danny joins Amber Gill, Anna Vakili, Amy Hart, Anton Danyluk, Joe Garratt, Molly-Mae Hague, Tommy Fury, Curtis Pritchard, Lucie Donlan, Sherif Lanre, Michael Griffiths and Yewande Biala in the Spanish villa.

The first dumping of the series happened on Friday, with Callum Macleod getting eliminated from Love Island first. He later shared that he had a bit of a crush on Yewande, which was some spicy goss.

The hit ITV2 show continues nightly on Virgin Media 2 at 9pm. Will Danny choose Amber or Yewande to be his lady? Time will tell.

We've all noticed Love Island's resident Irish contestant Yewande NEVER being on screen. Literally never. The jacuzzi gets more air-time.

It seems the show's viewers have also seen the annoying pattern, and are hitting out at the ITV2 dating show for failing to give Callum, Michael and Yewande their due time on screen.

Those involved in all the drama and love triangles such as Lucie, Joe and Tommy are bound to be seen more, and 24 hours of footage has to be snipped down, but still.

Viewers claimed that Yewande, among other islanders, were being purposefully left out from the episodes, and host Caroline Flack tried to explain the reasoning behind this,

She felt it was more because of the show's main moments, and who has feelings for a fellow islander. Yewande has fancies Curtis, but that's about it. Plus he's a taken man.

On Love Island: Aftersun, Flack said; “We haven’t really seen enough of Yewande yet have we, but is it purely because she just hasn’t fancied anyone…”

AJ Odudu was a guest on the panel, and confessed that she believes Yewande has self-esteem issues and isn't ready to take on romance as of yet.

“I think Yewande has self-esteem issues, I really do, I feel like she’s her biggest barrier in there," she said.

Viewers and the entire panel are hoping that she'll find love in the form of new islander; Danny Williams.

The newbie will take Yewande and Amber out on a date tonight, stay tuned to see what happens. Judging by his massive ego, we think he's a better match for Amber though…damn it…
