Footballer Toby Aromolaran and marketing executive Chloe Burrows have been suggested as potential new favourites to take the Love Island crown this year by ex-Islander Amy Hart, who appeared on the hit show in 2019.
Amy’s previously thought Jake Cornish and Liberty Poole would go on to win the show, but Jake’s “snakey” antics in Casa Amor has made him less popular with the public.
Amy said: “Jake 100% knew what he was doing in Casa Amor so he could be the hero when he came back. I think he got away with it and attention was diverted away with the old clip of him saying he wasn’t sure about his feelings for Liberty. But convincing the boys to try and mug the girls off was snakey!”
“I thought his feelings for Liberty were genuine at first but now I’m not so sure. I don’t think Liberty and Jake are going to win it anymore, I think Chloe and Toby will. Love Island is all about the journey and they’ve been on a journey. Toby was a bit all over the place to start with, but he’s been an ultimate Islander – he’s funny, he’s been moving mad in there.”
The couple got together in the early stages of the show, but Toby’s head was turned by Abigail Rawlings and newcomer Mary Bedford, who he later dumped to couple back up with Chloe. Amy predicted that the top five couples, in order, will be Chloe and Toby, Millie and Liam, Faye and Teddy, Kaz and Tyler and Liberty and Jake
Speaking about the departure of popular Irishman Matthew MacNabb, Amy said she wasn’t surprised newcomer Priya Gopaldas had coupled up with model Brett Staniland.
“She and Brett hit it off straight away and have a lot in common. I did love Matt in the Hat, but I’m not surprised. Priya is a nice girl but I’m not sure she and Brett will have enough time to make an impression.”
Amy said although it’s late in the day, there may still be more ‘bombshells’ arriving to the Love Island Villa.
“Usually we know when the last Islander has gone in but we’ve not had that yet so I don’t know whether we’ve still got people to come in. We’ll see.”
Another couple who split and got back together are fashion administrator Millie Court and brickie Liam Reardon, who had his head turned by blonde bombshell Lillie Haynes in Casa Amor.
Amy said: “I do like Millie and Liam together, they will definitely be in the final but whether they can win I don’t know. People have short memories, so they could potentially win it now because things other contestants have done have overtaken what Liam did in Casa Amor. I’m glad they’ve managed to work it out. She was never going to find someone else in there that she had the same connection with.”
Since her appearance on the show Amy’s career in showbiz has soared. The former flight attendant said her advice for the Islanders when they leave the villa was to enjoy every minute.
She said: “Make sure your friends and family are around you and write it all down because you won’t remember everything but it’s amazing. I did 37 interviews in 14 days. It’s quite full on and you have events and parties and there’s loads of stuff going on. It’s really fun but it’s such a whirlwind.
“I think [the Islanders] will all do well in their chosen fields. I think this year the girls have held their own, the boys are lovely and will do well but I think the girls will be the queens of this year. I think they will do best when they return to the real world. Chloe will do really well because she is just a comedy queen and she’s hilarious. Obviously, Faye will do really well and Kaz was an influencer before she went in, so she will be an amazing influencer.”
