New Love Island 2023 cast compared to old Islanders

People are comparing new Love Island lineup to ex-Islanders and it’s hilariously accurate

Tanyel simply needs to be the Ekin-Su of this year, end of

Love Island 2023 has only just started, but already we can match the vibes of loads of the new lineup to previous Islanders. Every year it feels as though there are carbon copies of cast members we’ve had before, and they match each other’s energy perfectly.

Naturally with the first episode back, Twitter went into absolute meltdown with Love Island memes. Loads of them were saying how we couldn’t quite believe how similar the new Islanders were to past people from the show. Will giving off Dr Alex vibes? Uncanny. Here’s a roundup of all the comparisons we drew up. I wonder if come next week we’ll feel completely different?

Kai and Adam Collard

Ok, I see it. Everyone is saying teacher Kai looks like Adam Collard, and almost completed Adam’s Love Island 2018 journey, just in the first coupling ceremony. Kai was coupled with Anna-May, stolen by Olivia and then ended up with Tanyel. He is choosing violence.

I am DEAD at people on Twitter actually blending Kai into Adam, the internet is too quick. Even Zara McDermott, who left Love Island 2018 with Adam, said on Instagram: “Is this Adam Collard reincarnated?!” SHE KNOWS.

Will and every posh boy who has ever been on the show

When we all saw farmer Will in the lineup, we probably had a good idea that he was going to be the token posh boy this year. And yes, his dancing and complimenting the girls more like a best friend is definitely giving Dr Alex.

He’s also been compared to Hugo Hammond, Chuggs Wallis, Ollie Williams, and any other blonde, private school Islander you can think of.

Not to mention, Will just does in general look and seem like every single other posho that’s ended up on this show. I fear if he doesn’t improve his chat, his days are numbered.

I can’t go through this again!

Olivia and Will and Curtis and Maura

I’m sorry but now I have seen this I can’t see anything else. Has anyone ever seen Curtis Pritchard and Will Young in the same room? Serious question. Olivia, run!

Tanyel and an iconic love child of Anna and Ekin-Su

Tanyel came and she chose chaos. It might have only been one episode, but already she is giving. She’s proven she isn’t one to care about stepping on toes, and if drama is what needs to happen for her to get what she wants, drama is what she will provide. Rightly so, people have been saying this sort of energy is like an incredible hybrid of Ekin-Su and Anna from 2019.

I see it!

Love Island 2023 continues at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX. For all the latest Love Island news and gossip and for the best memes and quizzes, like The Holy Church of Love Island on Facebook.
