A Love Letter to Love Island

I told myself I wouldn’t be drawn in by the hype of Love Island again. After an embarrassing four-week binge last summer, instigated by the Mike-Jess ‘did they, didn’t they’ saga, I said goodbye to July with a whole new vocabulary, new-found knowledge of the Blazin’ Squad and six pounds heavier as a result of the snacks consumed whilst binging the show. Yet, as the 2nd June 2018 rolled around, my housemates and I sat, buffet in tow, impatiently anticipating the return of the fourth series. Two weeks in, I’m rooting for Dani, astounded by Adam and secretly hoping Eyal will be whisked off by the producers and dropped in the sea. I know deep down, I’m absolutely screwed.
