Flack: Love Island stars are gagging for it

Love Island presenter Caroline Flack is already trying to work out which contestants are going to hook up before the series even starts.

The X Factor host will present the ITV2 show which starts on Sunday and sees a bunch of singletons enter a house in an exotic location looking for romance. The series originally featured celebrities, but in its new form Caroline thinks it’ll be much better viewing.

“When celebrities go in everyone does hold back a little bit because they're in the public eye. But these guys just want to go in and get it on,” she told British newspaper The Mirror. “They're literally all GAGGING for each other and they've all been left alone for a week in isolation. So they're probably like, 'Right, I need to be with some other humans.' They are going in because they're single and they're up for it. That's literally why they're going in, there's no other reason.”

The 35-year-old will meet the contestants on Friday and lead them into the house. While she hasn’t met any of the participants yet, who will include Linford Christie’s niece Rachel and Lauren Richardson, who was pictured with One Direction’s Zayn Malik in Thailand before he quit the group, she’s already working out who will hook up.

“It's going to get saucy. Some of them are looking for long-term relationships but some of them are just looking for a bit of fun,” Caroline explained. “Love Island is more about the relationship than the people. In my head I've worked out who is going to get with who but you never know."

Ahead of entrance to the show, Rachel Christie spoke out at her disappointment that former Gladiator beau David McIntosh - ex-boyfriend of Kelly Brook - has neglected their four-year-old son Logan.

“Every parent has a duty to take care of their responsibilities. He doesn’t see Logan. Being a man he should have a lot more contact with his son but I don't care for that anymore and I am just doing what I need to do to raise my little boy,” she said.
