The final bombshells: Meet the parents of this year’s Love Island cast

They’ve been called ‘wild’ and ‘eye candy’


Each year Love Island has an episode where the Islander's mums, dads, brothers, sisters, friends and various significant others enter the villa. There are always tears, hugs, and buckets of awkwardness as they meet the couples for the first time. But who are the Love Island parents?

Here is everything we could find about the people who brought the Islanders into the world.

Meet the Love Island parents:

Belle shares loads of pictures of her mum Karen on Instagram, and Tamer Hassan has been VERY open in the media about Love Island.

Tamer called Anton "disrespectful and disloyal" when he kissed Anna in a challenge and then said he was going to fly to the villa and kidnap Anton??!! He said: "Mate, I will come for you with a parachute and take you out if you do one single thing to upset Belle." Wow.

Sherie-Ann Danyluk

Parent of: Anton Danyluk

Sherie-Ann is possibly the most famous of the 2019 Love Island parents. She shaves son Anton's bum and we all know about it, obviously.

Anton's mum was called "wild" after she appeared on Aftersun earlier in the series and spoke all about the shaving thing.

Not a lot is publicly known about Maura's parents. Other than that her mum Sharon responded to transformation pictures of her daughter that surfaced.

She said: "She's 28 now. She has matured. She never got plastic surgery ever. The only thing she ever got done – and she never hid it, she had it up on her own Instagram – was she got some lip filler. Because she had quite thin lips."

Maura said on her date with Curtis that Sharon would love him.

Adrian and Debi Pritchard

Parents of: Curtis Pritchard

Adrian, Curtis' dad, has his own website and is an experienced Ballroom and Latin international choreographer and coach. Debi Pritchard is a pilates instructor and lists herself as "mum to" AJ and Curtis in her Twitter bio.

Adrian and Debi Pritchard appeared on This Morning alongside Curtis' brother AJ. They revealed he had wanted to go on a dating show before. It was his mum that told him to go big, and go on Love Island.

Vanessa and Leon Gill

Parents of: Amber Gill

Amber's mum has also been quite public since her daughter went into the Love Island villa. Skip to 4.19 in this video to see her talking about how much she didn't want Amber to get back with Michael on This Morning.

She says it's hard watching Amber cry and she can tell she is struggling. She thought Michael was a game player. Same Vanessa, same.

Amber also has a really fit sister called Lauren Nicole Gill.

Debbie Gordon and Steve Hague

Parents of: Molly-Mae Hague

Molly-Mae's dad Steve stars in one of her YouTube videos and everyone in the comments thinks the same thing – he's fit. One person commented: "Your dad looks so so young!"

Another user said: "He’s great he actually picked things he knew you’d like rather than being a typical dad and picking jumpers and trackies with no skin on show. He’s great love him. Eye candy too!"
