Missy Keating has set the record straight on rumours she’s joining Love Island.

The singer and model revealed that she was approached by show bosses to join the reality dating show.

However, the 19-year-old turned it down, with one of the reasons being that she is in a relationship with boyfriend Mark.

“Last year when I was in London they did contact me but I was in a relationship so it was a no, I don’t know where the whole thing came from this year,” she told the Irish Mail on Sunday.

She admitted that Love Island is not a show she sees herself doing.

“It was never on the cards and probably never will,” she explained, adding that she would be up for doing another type of show.

“Love Island is not really a show for me, maybe other shows but no, I’m a taken lady.”

Missy previously appeared on The Voice UK with her bandmate Georgia Gaffney under the name GGMK. The girls got through after their audition but didn’t make it all the way to the end.

On the other hand, Belfast YouTuber Oliva Neill has revealed that she’d love to do Love Island, having recently split from her boyfriend, John.

Olivia was recently spotted in a London nightclub with former Love Island star, Wes Nelson having just moved over the the UK capital.

Speaking in a YouTube video, she said:

“Love Island, contact me, slide in my DMs, I’m ready, I’m ready to go, I’ve been putting it off for years,” revealed Olivia.

Adding that she doesn’t know how good of a contestant she’d actually be, she continued by saying:

“If some boy was like ‘can we go for a chat’, I’d be like ‘we can absolutely not do that’.”

And it’s a known thing that Love Island producers scout many of their Islanders. Last year alone, 24 contestants on the summer series came on as a result of scouting, with only six applicants on the show coming from the rigorous application process – where it’s believed a staggering 85,000 people applied.

With Olivia Neill similar to Molly-Mae in terms of social following pre-Love Island, with 500,000 subscribers on YouTube and similarly over 400,000 followers on Instagram, Olivia could be just what the show is looking for when filming kicks off again.
