The new series of Love Island has been gracing our screens for just over a week, and things are really hotting up.
Living up to every expectation, we’ve been treated to a whole bunch of buff singles – and, so far, we’ve had man-stealing, tears and tantrums. Of course, we’ve also had our fair share of heartfelt scenes too. Well, it is called LOVE Island.

Although things got off to a pretty awkward start for the islander, it’s safe to say that he’s quickly become a firm favourite of the series.

But now, the former teen star seems to have made it his mission to be the voice of reason and pillar of support for everyone in the villa – especially after all of the drama that kicked off during last night’s episode (which aired on 13th June).

Many have pointed out that, as soon as one of the girls starts to cry, he’s instantly there and armed with a hug.
Former islander Kady McDermott even took to her account to praise the new contestant, writing: ‘Please @LoveIsland find marcel the love of his life he is amazing’.
We’re hoping for that too!
