Love Island bosses teasing return of former stars with subtle theme

Love Island 2022 is quickly coming around the corner – and rumours of the contestants are swirling around.

However, could some of the contestants actually be former favourites heading into the villa to try, once again, to find the person of their dreams? Bosses seem keen – and hints have been dropped.

During a Q&A with fans on Reddit on Wednesday, executive producer Mike Spencer confessed he would "love" to bring back the stars of the show for a one-off special… but it may have already been done.

He told fans in the Q&A: "I would personally love to make an 'All Stars in the future with past Islanders across all series. What do you think?"

However he told fans that it would ultimately be down to ITV, while viewers declared the idea as their "dream".

But that's not the only hint Love Island has been dropping which suggests some famous faces could be returning to the villa – albeit not the same one they knew.

The first hint came on May 6 when Love Island released their first teaser for the new series in which they squashed all reality shows and shared an animation of ex-islanders Millie Court playing the piano and Chris Taylor doing the famous "salmon".

24 hours later, Love Island titled themselves "The OGs of Love" and focused on the concept of "original" – alone, this could be a nod to their lengthy reality show, but alongside other hints… could it mean more?

A big twist has been the apparent theme of this year's show – gold.

The Love Island water bottle was released with a new gold font, making it a limited edition and only available for Summer 2022.

In yet another hint, Idris Virgo, a former Love Island star, wrote on the post: "Can we get a hashtag #allstars?"

To top off the theory, Laura Whitmore was seen posing in a gold dress with wings on her back and a Cupid's bow in her hands – so it seems apparent that gold is making a prominent appearance this year.

Famously, the phrase "golden" is also a nod to "golden oldies", while usually referring to music, the phrase generally means it was a "hit or favourite in the past".

With many references to "original" and "gold", could former stars be returning? Now that would be the ultimate bombshell…

Love Island begins on June 6 at 9pm on ITV.
