Move over Caroline Flack!
This time last year Kem Cetinay was preparing to enter the Love Island villa. Now he’s getting ready to take on his first ever presenting gig ahead of the new series.
The Dancing on Ice star has landed a pretty huge gig presenting the show’s official podcast
See, given the show’s huge success year-on-year, TV bosses are pretty keen to give viewers more and more content.
That’s why they’ve introduced a brand new podcast – Love Island: The Morning After – hosted by Kem Cetinay and Arielle Free.
Kem and Arielle will not only discuss, reflect on and laugh at the daily musings of the nation’s favourite villa, but also host exclusive interviews with guests and dumped islanders.
The Essex-born lad took to Twitter to confirm the news and promised to be on his “best behaviour.”
“So excited to co-host the new @itv2 @LoveIsland podcast, this exact day last year I was on the plane to Mallorca! Can’t wait to see all the new cast members and the fun and drama their going to be up to. I’ll try be on my best behaviour.. promise no swear words,” he tweeted.
Kem will no doubt be feeling nostalgic as it’s been a year since he went on to win the show with then-girlfriend Amber Davies.
The couple scooped the £50k prize fund but split just four months later.
With pressure mounting on ITV bosses to top what was an amazing series last year, producers have confirmed they’re mixing things up this year.
The show’s senior producer, Angela Jain, said viewers shouldn’t expect carbon copies of last year’s characters.
“We don’t want to cast the same characters every time, we aren’t looking for the next Camilla or the next Montana, that’s the opposite of what we’re looking for,” she explained.
The show – hosted by Caroline Flack – returns on Monday 4th June at 9pm for eight weeks.
