Love Island’s Dom Lever fears show could be axed after next year’s series

Love Island alum Dom Lever has revealed his concern that the show may not outlive 2022.

The star from the 2017 series found love in the villa with Jess Shears and later married and had a child together in 2019.

However, Dom has expressed some criticism of the most recent series as the 2021 run nears its finale on Monday.

Speaking to The Sun, Dom described the new series as an “anticlimax” after an 18-month wait for episodes.

Dom told the paper”: “I think next year will be the crucial year. I think our year was the year it blew up but since then every year since has gone down a little bit.”

He continued: “I would love to see it continue but all good shows come to an end like Big Brother. This year could be the straw that broke the camel’s back or they could nail it and think they f**ked it up last year so we better make it incredible.”

He suggested the show also needs more diversity in addition to ethnicity and skin colour, with diverse body types and also encouraged the inclusion of bisexual and pansexual people to change the dynamics.

Dom noted that wife and Love Island co-star Jess Shears has been the biggest woman to take part in the show despite only being a size 10.

Despite his criticism, Dom still believes the show is a success and highlights the marriages and babies that have come out of the show.

He also backed Chloe Burrows and Toby Aromolaran to win the series due to the journey they have had and for being the most “real”.

There are currently only five couples remaining including Chloe and Toby.

The other couples are Jake Cornish and Liberty Poole, Kaz Kamwi and Tyler Cruickshank, Faye Winter and Teddy Soares, and Millie Court and Liam Reardon.

Narrowly missing out on the final was Mary Bedford and Aaron Simpson, who were both dumped on Thursday night’s show.

*Love Island continues at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub, with previous episodes available on ITV Hub and added to BritBox the following morning.
