Love Island All Stars in talks to sign TWO legends – including fan favourite who made the final and show villain | The Sun
LOVE Island bosses have set their sights on the show’s most loved star as well as a legendary villain for their All Stars edition.
The Sun can reveal that fan favourite Ovie Soko is in talks to appear as well as firefighter Michael Griffiths.
Both appeared in the ITV2 show’s juicy fifth season, which was won by Amber Gill.
Michael became the 2019 series villain when he sensationally dumped much-loved Amber in favour of Joanna Chimonides after Casa Amor.
Whereas Ovie’s laid back attitude installed him as a show legend – despite him proving unlucky in love in the villa.
He arrived as part of Casa Amor to try and win Anna Vakili’s heart, but was ultimately ditched for Jordan Hames – who then promptly dumped Anna for page three beauty India Reynolds.
It made for one of the most explosive rows in Love Island history.
A source said: “Ovie and Michael emerged as the angel and devil of series five and both, for their own reasons, made tremendous TV.
“Both remain seriously hot property with the ladies and Ovie especially is an icon among the Love Island fandom.
“They’ll make amazing signings for All Stars if ITV are able to get their signing across the line.”

An ITV spokesman said: “No Islanders have been confirmed for the forthcoming series of Love Island: All Stars at this stage.”
ITV announced All Stars in September after months of speculation a star-spangled edition would run to celebrate ten years of the dating behemoth.
So far Islanders including Chloe Burrows, Faye Winter, Paige Thorne and Joe Garratt have been revealed to be undertaking talks for the star-spangled series.
Mike Spencer, Creative Director, of production company Lifted Entertainment, said: “It has been rumoured now for a while but we are thrilled to finally confirm that we are making Love Island: All Stars early next year for ITV2 and ITVX.
"It's set to be a must watch series seeing some of your favourite Islanders from across the years heading back to the stunning South African villa to once again 'graft' as their search for love continues. I simply can't wait!”
Paul Mortimer, Director of Reality Commissioning & Acquisitions and Controller, ITV2, ItvBe said: "After 10 ratings busting seasons of Love Island on ITV2, we're delighted to be able to celebrate a decade of the number one dating show on television with the first ever series of Love Island: All Stars.
"Set in our luxurious South African Villa, I know the audience will welcome back some of the most iconic UK Islanders, as they set out in pursuit of love all over again in a brand new version of our worldwide hit."
