Love Islands surprising superfans – from Margot Robbie and Stormzy to Ed Balls

Love Island is one of the most addictive shows on TV, that’s a fact.

It’s almost too easy to get sucked into the drama and partner-swapping of the sexy singletons and watch the contestants’ journey from nobodies to big-time names.

And with the winter edition just having just kicked off it’s never far from our screens.

The show has become so popular its fans span the globe and some of its most passionate followers are quite… surprisingly high profile.

Would you believe the likes of Hollywood A-lister Margot Robbie are obsessed with the antics in the villa?

Even former politician Ed Balls can’t get enough either.

So besides the millions of civilians who tune in every night to see the contestants “crack on”, here’s the lowdown on some of Love Island’s more well-known followers – with one celeb's tweet even being used in one of the famous challenges.

Margot Robbie

The Aussie actress is so enamoured of the show she even had a Love Island-themed birthday party last year complete with a bucking bronco and a heart-shaped ice sculpture, transforming her house into the infamous Casa Amor.

Margot, 32, also posed for selfies with 2019 Love Island stars Jordan Hames, Lucie Dolan and Michael Griffiths at the London premiere of Birds of Prey.

Further cementing her love for the ITV show, the Suicide Squad even Facetimed Adam Collard, 26, with her pal Cara Delevingne during an Aftersun reunion last year.

Amy Schumer

Comedian and actress Amy Schumer adores Love Island so much that she even called Irish contestant Maura Higgins her “homie”.

She has previously spoken about her love for the show, saying back in 2019: "I'm loving this season of Love Island.

"I want to give a shout-out to Maura. I feel very connected to her."

Former host Laura Whitmore also revealed that while she was interviewing Amy, 41, on video, the Trainwreck star said: “I'm really sorry, but are you Laura Whitmore from Love Island?

“We only had six minutes to talk and we just talked about Love Island. We didn’t talk about her show at all and then the time was up! That was really funny.”


Surely the phenomenally successful rapper is too cool for Love Island, right?

Wrong! He loves it.

And in a fateful twist, his ex-girlfriend Maya Jama is now the current host.

Stormzy even made a guest appearance on the show in 2017 after wading in on the drama between Chris Hughes and Olivia Atwood.

The 29-year-old tweeted: "Chris you're too good for her mate", which soon went viral.

The contestants couldn't believe it when the Shut Up singer appeared via video link to give them tips on their upcoming talent show.

Ed Balls

The former politician and GMB presenter is so fond of the show, he even has a Love Island suitcase.

Ed, 52, also likes to don a branded dressing gown while watching it.

Co-host Susanna Reid recently brought it up on the breakfast show, saying: "I forgot, of course, how obsessed. It's not just that you watch, you actually are obsessed with Love Island."

She added: "You have got a Love Island suitcase, haven't you? Which you haven't just got in a cupboard somewhere, you use on a regular basis."

He replied: "It's been to the south coast, it's been to Southern Spain, and also been to Yorkshire in the past three weeks."
