This is how much the Islanders’ Instagram followers have gone up by since the show began
Gemma and Ekin-Su have both hit a million followers
It’s hard to believe, but Love Island 2022 is soon coming to an end with just one week left. In the past seven weeks we’ve seen tears, kisses and plenty of our favourite Italian snack Davide, and next Monday the finale of Love Island will air. After the final episode airs the Islanders will be finally be allowed back into the real world, and most importantly they’ll have their phones back.
Former Islanders have shared how once they got their phones back they were shocked to see just how many Instagram followers they’d got since they first went into the villa.
And a number of this year’s Love Islanders will be in for quite a surprise when they open their Instagram accounts. Gemma Owen and Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu have both now reached a million followers on Instagram, and some others aren’t far behind them.
