'Love Island's' Ovie Soko Is Going To Be The Chef On 'This Morning' And We Cannot Wait

'Love Island's' Ovie Soko Is Going To Be The Chef On 'This Morning' And We Cannot Wait

It was an iconic moment: Ovie Soko calmly pulls his bucket hat out of the fridge, places it on his head like some sort of bouji chef's hat, before commencing his task of making the whole Love Island villa eggs for breakfast.

It was majestic, so it's no wonder This Morning are recruiting the 28-year-old basketball player's culinary efforts for their own kitchen.

Yes, Ovie will be redonning his chef's hat to rustle up a spot of brunch for Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford this Thursday at 10.30am, and we're genuinely tempted to pull a sickie to watch it.

"Message! Cooking on This Morning is going to be dope, but I'll need to graft hard if my infamous eggs are to live up to the hype for Love Island fans Eamonn and Ruth," Ovie said about his gig. "They're daytime royalty after all."

Ovie will also be sticking around for an interview on the sofa afterwards with India Reynolds, while show runners up Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury will also be sitting down on the sofa.

This Morning's editor Martin Frizell added: "Here at This Morning we pride ourselves on nurturing and developing new talent.

"Ovie was undoubtedly one of the most popular Islanders this year and so we're thrilled to have him on the show as a brand new guest chef."

He brought up pearls of wisdom such as "Anyone who doesn't cook with a basic seasoning of garlic, salt and pepper, I don't know what you're doing in life, you definitely shouldn't be in the kitchen" and "Your breath might be a bit manky but your tastebuds are definitely going to appreciate it," in the Love Island villa, so we can only hope there's more of that.

We can already see he and his bucket hat making a splash. Gino D'Acampo watch out!
