ITV boss Kevin Lygo says #LoveIsland will never have gay contestants as they “can't make it work”:— Pop Crave (@PopCrave) August 27, 2021
“We had a blind skater on Dancing On Ice, we had a disabled person in I’m A Celebrity so I think ITV is already involved in the portrayal of a wide range of people on their shows.” pic.twitter.com/zkqe2YJh7m
-Love Island, the latest in a plethora of dating shows centered around hot straight men and women attempting to find love and money wont be featuring any gay cast members anytime soon if iTV boss Kevin Lygo has his way.
-He claims that they have essentially been accommodating enough across their network by including blind and disabled people on their shows.
-ITV boss Amanda Stavri said gay Islanders would present a “logistical difficulty” for the series.
Do you think it's time that we have gay dating reality shows? Gay Bachelor(ette), etc...
