Love Island: Laura Whitmore Posts Sweet Tribute To Caroline Flack As Cast Announced

Love Island is set to become our summer obsession once again, with a brand new batch of Islanders set to crack on and mug off in the Majorcan villa.

The new cast of season 7 is being slowly revealed on Twitter and Instagram today, and we're already intrigued to see who will couple up with who when the show starts next week.

Now, host Laura Whitmore has shared her excitement for the new series, as well as paying tribute to former Love Island frontwoman Caroline Flack.

Sharing a promo shot of herself for the series on Instagram, 36-year-old Laura wrote: "I think we're all ready for some love!

"So excited to watch the new islanders. Hope you enjoy talking about them and following their journey and just a reminder to treat them with love, compassion and respect when they leave the show and go back to real life."

In a special nod to close friend Caroline, Laura added: "Caroline I hope we do you proud. One week to go!"

Laura was originally just a stand-in host for Love Island 2020, after Caroline stepped down following assault accusations. Former MTV presenter Laura was then made the permanent host when Caroline tragically took her own life in February last year.

The tribute comes just one day after Love Island bosses urged fans of the show to 'be kind' to the Islanders, after some have received harsh trolling on their social media platforms.

"These Islanders are all single and ready to find love," a post on the official Love Island Twitter reads.

"We can't wait to watch them get to know each other, date, and maybe even find the one.

"We're so grateful they are letting us follow their journey this summer. We hope you enjoy the show, but please think before you post."

Execs also revealed Love Island's comprehensive new duty of care schemes, in the way of the suicides of both Mike Thalassitis and Sophie Gradon.
