Unless you’ve been living on a…. desert island… for the past two weeks, you will have heard almost the entire population of Britain babbling non-stop about Love Island . Shhhh, don’t tell the Paps……. it takes place in Mallorca.
The hit ITV2 show is back, following the daily trials and tribulations of 20-something singletons and their first world problems, camped in a luxury villa. All with the end goal of finding love and winning some cash. Think ‘Big Brother’ in the sunshine.
Call me an excuse-maker for vacuous TV, but it turns out that a very good friend of ours is contestant Tyla’s dad. So I’m tuning in out of support.
Apparently, as the weeks have rolled by, certain repeated catchphrases have been used by the LI cast. So here’s where I come in.
The clever-clogs at Primark have whipped up six simple t-shirts with some of the reality show’s most popular catchphrases so far – so you can wear your heart on your, t-shirt? And all for just £6. Fans are currently going crazy on Twitter, since the launch this week.
“Absolute Melt”, “100% My Type On Paper”, “I’ve Got A Text” and “Grafting” are all destined for the dictionary any day now.
I wonder how these will go down at Primark in Mallorca? Will we hear “Grafting” in a Spanish accent soon?
