Love Island Season 8: Meet the Cast!
Ahead of the eighth season premiere of the hit reality dating series Love Island Uk, ITV has announced the names of the contestants for the season. The season will feature 11 glamorous singles who will take the stage in the upcoming season. The list of participants starts with Liam Llewellyn, a 22-year-old postgraduate student from South Wales. The season also features 27-year-old Davide Sanclimenti from Rome, Italy, and 23-year-old waitress from London, Indiyah Polack.
There is also Paige Thorne, a 24-year-old paramedic from Wales and model and dancer from Thirsk Tasha Ghouri. In addition, 19-year-old business owner Gemma Owen becomes the youngest Love Island contestant ever. The season also features a 27-year-old Guernsey real estate agent, Andrew Le Page. And a 33-year-old pharmacist from Nottingham, Ikenna Ekwonna.
There are also Amber Beckford, a Nanny from London, A, and 26-year-old senior microbiologist Dami Hop. And last but not least, there’s also Luca Bish, a 23-year-old fishmonger who belongs to Brighton.
As Love Island has progressed, production has increased participants’ use of social media to promote their brands and build an online following. A Redditor thinks social media is screwing it up. The stakes are not high enough in the villa. They want deals and try to market themselves. But judging by the contestants’ increased popularity on social media once the show airs, including huge spikes in Instagram followers.
The increasing presence of social media branding on the show is actually working as intended. For example, fans may not know that even Molly-Mae’s Pretty Little Thing brand has achieved massive success and massively increased its visibility.
