Rylan Clark-Neal urges ITV2 to air Big Brother – just so he can watch Love Island

Last year saw Big Brother and its celebrity spin-off dropped from Channel 5, while Love Island went from strength to strength for ITV2.

Love Island 2019 launched last night to record numbers – 3.25million in total and a share of 16.4% of all television viewers.

But one person not tuning in was Rylan Clark-Neal, former host of Big Brother’s Bit on the Side.

He told his 1.5million followers: “Is it bad I still can’t do it? Love Island… Big Brother #LoyalBabes.”

Using Georgia Steel’s infamous catchphrase from last year, ITV2 replied with a GIF of a “Loyal Mail” van.

And it seems Rylan really does want to watch the show, as he’s come up with a solution.

He responded to ITV2: “Surely you could just buy Big Brother, put it on later in the year and then I’ll be able to watch both. Thanks.”

His reply got a lot of attention from Big Brother fans, with many responding with hope that it could end up on ITV2.

One said: “Make it happen ITV2 #SaveBBUK,” while another added: “OMG this is an amazing idea.”

Last night’s Love Island got off to a good start, with the first couples being revealed.

There was a twist, of course, though, with Tommy Fury and Curtis Pritchard arriving late and having their pick of the girls.

Viewers will have to wait to see how they shake things up – but it might not be the lads causing the fireworks.

In tonight’s episode, Amber Gill confesses she finds Joe Garratt “attractive”, though he’s already coupled up with Lucie Donlan.

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
