Love Island All Stars: ITV reveals line-up for 2024 series
- by proamteam
Georgia Harrison will head up a cast of former Love Islanders looking for a second chance to couple up in a new All Stars edition.
It will be the first time she’s appeared on reality TV since her ex Stephen Bear was jailed for for posting intimate footage of her.
She’ll be joined in the villa by 11 other Love Island stars including Kaz Kamwi and Toby Aromolaran.
Maya Jama will also return to host the spin-off being filmed in South Africa.
Georgia, 29, has become known for campaigning on women’s safety since Stephen Bear was sentenced to 21 months in prison last March.
Announcing her return to the villa, she said the past year had been “amazing” but “heavy at times and pretty serious with all of my campaigning work”.
Now Georgia, who first appeared on series three of the ITV2 show in 2017, says she wants to go back into the villa to “have some fun and hopefully meet someone that I can fall in love with”.
The villa is also a place where friendships are made, and that’s the case for Kaz Kamwi and Liberty Poole, who’ve become best mates since appearing in 2021’s series.
Kaz said meeting Liberty was the memory she “loved and treasured the most”, but both are expecting a different experience this time around.
“I’m a lot more confident in who I am and sure about exactly what I want from a relationship,” Liberty said.
They’ll be joined by fellow All Stars Chris Taylor, Georgia Steele, Anton Danyluk, Hannah Elizabeth, Demi Jones, Jake Cornish, Luis Morrison and Mitchel Taylor.
Chris Taylor, who briefly dated Maura Higgins, made a brief cameo as a Ken in last year’s Barbie movie.
He got the role after meeting Margot Robbie, and said his “silly chat” must have “made an impression” on the star.
“Eighteen months later I got an email from Warner Bros asking: ‘Do you want to try out for this role as Ken?’,” he said.
Love Island’s ratings have seen a steady drop over the past few years, with last summer’s first episode losing more than one million viewers compared with 2022.
It’s faced competition from a crop of new rivals like BBC Three’s I Kissed a Boy, the UK’s first gay dating show, and scrutiny over its duty of care to contestants.
All Stars is the latest attempt to put a new spin on the format after the recent Love Island Games, which saw islanders from around the world compete in challenges.
Love Island All Stars airs on ITV2 on 15 January.
