Caroline Flack: Love Island brings everyone together

Share article:

Caroline Flack thinks "Love Island" brings everyone together.

The 38-year-old host thinks last year's series was such a success because the UK was going through such a divisive period at the time.

She said: "We were going through a time last year where everyone was against each other, voting all these different things, and what Love Island did was bring everyone back together and we could all love Marcel at the same time. It's complete escapism. It's guilt-free, fun and enjoyment and a little bit of gossip, and aren't we all interested other people's relationships? We're all nosy."

And the brunette beauty - who is engaged to Andrew Brady - loves how "old-fashioned" the show is despite it being a modern dating show.

She added: "Even though it's a modern dating show, it's actually an old-fashioned way of getting to know someone. We have no mobile phones, there's no internet, no Tinder, they're actually going back to the old art of conversation to fall in love. There's no liking, no poking, no stalking, you actually have to talk. It's a sped-up real life relationship."

Caroline says the show is one that naturally "evolves" itself rather than be like a traditional "reality show".

She told BBC News: "The show is self-producing. It's not like a reality show where we say, "right there's an eviction this night, someone's leaving that night", we can't work it like that, because we'd rather it evolve on its own, and you can't produce a relationship. They happen in there, we follow them. That's why they call me out and go, "Right, you need to be here in four hours," and I go "I'm coming!" And then I get on a plane and go out there and announce some news, and that's really fun. I don't know when it's going to happen, they don't know when it's going to happen. There probably [will be] some twists here and there, but they're not going to tell me."
