The Four Lads In Viral Meme Tipped To Sign Up For Love Island

If you're yet to see the 'four lads in jeans' viral meme that's been making its way around social media this weekend, where have you been?!

The photo - which has been edited and turned into a selection of different memes - has been shared in pretty much every WhatsApp group chat this week. It features four lads from Birmingham - aka Kevin Rooney, Alex Lacey, Jamie Phillips and Connor Humpage - who are all wearing mega tight jeans on a night out.

And with their new found fame, many have started to predict what could be next for the four lads - including a potential stint on Love Island perhaps?!


According to Paddy Power, the chances of one of the lads making a reality TV appearance in 2021 currently stands at 1/3, with Love Island being the most likely destination, with odds of 6/4.

But the opportunities don't stop there. Bookies have also slated the four lads to make a 'public appearance' in a nightclub at some point this year - providing they open, of course!

And the boys are tipped at 10/1 to bring out an exclusive Boohoo Man range, featuring tight tops and 'slightly too short' jeans.


A spokesperson at Paddy Power said: "These four lads have been all over social media recently, and while we're all loving the memes, I was starting to feel a bit sorry for them.

"But we then had a look at the odds that the meme catapults them into the Love Island villa - and once I realised they'd be in for weeks of sunbathing and subsequent influencer status, I realised I am actually really jealous."


The lads have also been tipped to front an anti bullying campaign after they spoke out about their sudden fame, and the impact that negative comments have had on their mental health.

Earlier today, the lads appeared on Good Morning Britain where they spoke about what happened after the first photo was posted in 2019.

Kevin said: "When it was taken and we uploaded it onto our Instagrams it was fine and then after three or four months we started seeing memes about us.

"It was literally just mocking us and we were getting hate, mockery for probably the last year. In the last week it has all turned and we're suddenly getting a lot of love."

Meanwhile, Alex explained there was a time where the attention had started to affect his mental health, adding: "My work number got released and I started getting loads of prank calls. That really affected me.

"It did have a massive affect on my mental state to be honest."
