The ITV phenomenon "Love Island" has sauntered out of the water in its bathing suit for Season 5, and while it has drawn in a peak viewership of 3.7million (Glamour Magazine, 2019) it is as divisive as Marmite.  A simple facebook question found a lot of romance:

"I was slap in the right place at the perfect time

Filled a gap, I was lucky

But one thing I'll say for me
