Greg O’Shea And Amber Gill Reportedly Won’t Be Getting A Love Island Spin-Off Show – Because Bosses Fear They’ll Split

To be honest, we’re kind of sad about it...

For fans of Greg O’Shea and Amber Gill, it’s sad news - as it looks like the Love Island winners won’t be getting a spin-off show on ITV2.

The Sun are reporting that bosses are holding back on commissioning a programme about the couple - as they fear they could split before it even airs.

Last year, they were left worrying about Jack & Dani: Life After Love Island due to the 2018 winner’s rocky relationship.

(Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood, the couple - who came third in 2017 - actually broke up at the end of their series Chris & Olivia: Crackin’ On.)

‘It’s been a publicity disaster in previous years, when couples split before their show aired or appeared to get back together just as the programmes came out,’ a TV insider told the paper.

They continued, ‘Jack and Dani’s series was a perfect example last year, with everyone saying their relationship was fake.

‘This year bosses want to take the heat off the contestants’ relationships, especially as it’s been such a choppy year for couples making a go of it.’

The move does make sense though, as there will be two series of Love Island happening next year anyway - with the first series kick starting in January from South Africa.

Announcing the extra series Paul Mortimer, Head of Digital Channels and Acquisitions at ITV, said, ‘Off the back of a record-breaking year, we're delighted to be bringing an extra series of our biggest and sunniest show to the 2020 schedule.

‘Love Island has proven yet again to be the perfect format that engages younger audiences.

‘In response to this viewer appetite, a new batch of young singletons will deliver some highly anticipated post-Christmas romance and drama from our new and luxurious location.’

This year, the show broke the six million viewing figure mark for the first time.
