Love Island bosses ‘searching for hot and sexy key workers’ for 2021 series

Love Island contestants will be able to ask if there is a doctor in the villa this summer if show bosses get their way as key workers are being hunted to fill the spots on the show.

The ITV reality romance series is due to return to screens later this year – after the summer and winter editions of the show were cancelled over the past 12 months due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Now bosses are hoping to fill the villa with hopefuls that are brainy as well as beautiful – with recent contestants including NHS doctor Alex George and lawyer Rosie Williams proving the inspiration.

The 2021 season will be the 7th series of the hit dating show and is expected to be a ratings smash as viewers have been deprived of the show since series 6 ended in February this year, and no summer edition featured last year.

The Sun on Sunday reports that producers want key workers to take part in the series after they proved to be “stars of the pandemic” and has suggested bosses are on the hunt for “a hot nurse or sexy surgeon” to be on the show.

A source told the publication: “The team have had over 100,000 applications and have been looking for talent with a bit of edge.

“Some of the best contestants over the years have been those who don’t just want to be famous – those with some real ambition, a solid career and a story to tell, especially of the key worker variety.”

The report adds bosses are hoping for stars that can prove they have “brains as well as brawn”.

When it comes to intelligence, the bar has been set quite low in past seasons of the show.

While there is no doubt the contestants are easy on the eye, viewers were left gobsmacked when watching contestants discussing Brexit during the 2018 season.

Eyebrows were raised when contestants questioned if trees would become non existent as a consequence of the political change – and the reality star expressed horror at the prospect that holidays to Spain might become less straightforward once the UK left the EU.

Love Island has teased it will return bigger and better for 2021 after being forced off the air by the pandemic.

While filming is rumoured to be taking part within the UK amid concerns the Spanish island of Mallorca may not be safe enough as Covid vaccination in the EU trails behind the UK and is unlikely to catch up by summer.
