There’s no denying thatLove Island2022 was a series that bought it all, from romance to drama and tension, the eight weeks it was on were certainly gripping.
This year’s cast, like previous years before them, have left the villa in time for plenty of brand partnerships and ways to change their lives.
While many apply for a chance to be on the ITV dating show – andapplications are currently open for 2023– others were scouted while out and about in their daily lives.
We take a look at how this year’s group came to be on the show.
From this year just three Islanders in the original line-up applied to be on the show.
According to MailOnline they arePaige Thorne,Andrew Le PageandDami Hope.
Casa Amor IslanderJack Keating revealed he too applied for the show– but only after the producers tried for two years to scout his sister, Missy.
Missy has been among the rumoured cast lists for years, with producers apparently desperately trying to sign her up.
She’s never been interested, and Jack said after a couple of drinks the siblings decided he’d apply instead.
