Love Island fans have decided who should replace Laura Whitmore

After Laura Whitmore quit Love Island the fans have spoken and decided who they want to replace her.

After replacing Caroline Flack in 2020, Laura dumped Love Island on Monday night due to ‘difficult elements’ surrounding the show and will subsequently not present the upcoming winter edition.

ITV also confirmed the news, with a spokesperson saying in a statement: ‘Laura has been a fantastic host across the last three series of the show.

‘We are so grateful for everything she has brought to the programme but understand and respect her decision, and we look forward to working with her on upcoming ITV projects.’

Naturally then Metro.co.uk selected our top picks for the job and asked you to decide which UK hun you want to replace Laura in January.

And after more than 1,000 votes were cast the numero uno was…. Maura Higgins.


The queen of Love Island received 33% of the vote, above Maya Jama (27%), Love Island champ Ekin-su Cülcüloğlu (15%), Emily Atack (13%), AJ Odudu (7%), and Katherine Ryan (6%).

Maura would of course be the perfect fit after being one of the most entertaining islanders of all time, and going on to pave a successful TV career which is still thriving five years after leaving the villa.

She has also presented Glow Up Ireland, and proved to be a huge hit with viewers serving as a host and mentor for the contestants.

All in all, her CV is a Love Island producer’s dream.

Metro.co.uk has contacted Maura for comment on this story.

Love Island returns to ITV2 in 2023.
