Here’s something to give you a January boost – Love Island 2022 applications are currently moving towards the final stages, meaning we don’t have too long to wait until everyone’s favourite dating show will be back on screens.

One of the biggest breakout stars of 2021 was Faye Winter, who came in third place alongside boyfriend Teddy Soars. During a Q&A with her followers, Faye shared advice that she has for this year’s hopefuls, telling them specifically what they shouldn’t do.

“Don’t do it like I done it” she said.

Sharing how her interview process for the show went down, Faye continued:

“I had my first interview, was a bit of a hard-faced cow then I had to have a second one with a different casting researcher because they wanted to see a softer side of me and I cried the whole way through it”

Faye said that the producers were interested in seeing ‘the real her’ and so a series of interviews were arranged.

“I was so soft but I had such a hard exterior and didn’t want to let anyone in. I would say be as open and honest as you can be.”

The show has come under fire in recent years for its lack of diverse representation in its contestants. Although applications were open to LGBTQ+ members last year, we saw no representation on the show. Producers shed light on why that is, sharing that it’s ‘logistically difficult’, however some changes may be made to the 2022 format.

A source has shared with The Sun that they hope to welcome non-binary contestants on the show.

“Producers are under more pressure than ever to make this series as woke as possible after it has previously come under criticism for its lack of diversity”

“The move could make the basic rules of the show complicated, as each coupling ceremony separates boys and girls, but they are keen to have a non-binary contestant this year. It’s all about inclusivity and breaking down boundaries.”

Will you or anyone you know be applying for the 2022 series?
