The nation is waiting in anticipation for the upcoming season of Love Island. A brand new trailer dropped recently and speculation surrounding the new cast of islanders has begun. One rumoured islander happens to be the daughter of famous singer Ronan Keating.

Ronan's eldest daughter, 21-year-old Missy, is thought to be jetting off to the island of love (well, Mallorca) and strutting into the villa for season eight. Love Island is known for casting islanders who have famous family members. Remember Dani Dyer, daughter of actor Danny Dyer, in season four? Or Sophie Piper, sister of presenter Rochelle Humes, in Love Island's winter edition? So, it wouldn't be a surprise if Missy was being headhunted for the show.

Ronan did an interview today on Good Morning Britain and didn't exactly squash the speculaition. 'I haven’t heard anything,’ Ronan said, before adding, ‘You never know. These kids are busy, all my kids, they’re all doing different things. I haven’t heard anything myself at the moment.’

The singer also admitted that while he’s a big Love Island fan, he would struggle tuning in to watch his daughter on her search for love. ‘I don’t know how I’d feel about it,’ he told presenters Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard. ‘I wouldn’t be able to watch.’

Missy, who Ronan shares with ex-wife Yvonne Connolly, has also been tipped by the bookies for an appearance in the upcoming 2022 series of the beloved reality show. She has actually dabbled in reality TV before so, this might not be a far fetched idea.

The 21-year-old recently appeared on Dancing With The Stars in the US, where she and her dance partner Ervinas Merfeldas became the first contestants voted off. Maybe she will have more luck during her summer of love?

ITV2’s popular dating show is set to return on Monday 6 June, for what is expected to be the show’s longest season yet. Hosting duo Laura Whitmore and Ian Stirling are back to guide the islanders to finding their one true love (or snatch the £50,000 cash prize).
