As the upcoming season of Love Island approaches, one Coronation Street viewer has emphasised how ideal Gail Platt (Helen Worth) would be for the programme given her numerous, numerous, numerous failed romances. ITV appears to have acknowledged they have properly predicted one of the bombshell arrivals!
The summer installment is almost coming, which means it’s time for a new group of singletons to go to work.
The yearly popular dating show’s 10th season premieres on Monday, June 5 at 9 p.m., and contestants are starting to be revealed as of today, May 29.
In the well-known reality programme, a group of men and women take part in a number of challenges with a partner in the hopes that they won’t get rejected and will instead find true love at the end.
There have been a tonne of responses to the tweet, including one from the ITV account, which stated: “We can confirm this is legit!”
The quick answer to whether Gail would truly be perfect for the programme is yes, but let’s look at her history of partnerships first.
Gail married Martin Platt in 1991, Richard Hillman in 2002, Joe McIntyre in 2010, Michael Rodwell in 2015, and Brian Tilsley twice (1979 and 1988).
Gail, who is currently single, would undoubtedly have a lot to discuss with the other competitors around the campfire regarding Richard, Joe, Michael, and Brian, the four former partners who passed away.
Gail would also horrify the singletons with tales of how Richard had pushed her, David (Jack P. Shepherd), and Sarah (Tina O’Brien) into a canal, how Joe had passed away after an insurance job gone awry, and how she had fallen in love with Michael after he had burglarized her home.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, Gail will not be entering the villa.
