So @itv2 have decided to show Love Island Australia season 1 from tomorrow to try fill the summer void left by Covid. Hurrah! So, a few things! This was our first season and it starts a little Bambi legs, no two ways about it! I was absolutely shitting my pants the first week & take a few days to find the voice and get the tone right, Iain is big boots to fill!! … the Islanders take a few days to actually talk to each other and the action takes a few days to materialse. BUT, MY GOD it turns into an absolutely cracking series! There’s such heart, laughs, drama, twists etc – honestly such good fun. So, be warned, a slow start but an absolutely roaring finish! If Love Island be your tipple, drink on friends! @loveislandau @sophiemonk
