Dav­ina: Love Is­land is like early Big Bro

Midweek Sport - - #LOVE ISLAND -

FOR­MER Big Brother host Dav­ina McCall is a fan of rival re­al­ity se­ries Love Is­land.

The 49-year-old telly babe ( above), who pre­sented Big Bro for 10 years, re­vealed she is hooked on the ITV2 dat­ing show – along with the rest of Bri­tain.

And Dav­ina reck­ons the key to Love Is­land’s suc­cess is that it has man­aged to em­u­late the ‘buzz’ that BB used to cre­ate.

She said: “Love Is­land is what Big Brother used to be. It’s got such an amaz­ing buzz about it – I love it!

“Ev­ery­body is talk­ing about it and I love it when that hap­pens.”

Love Is­land has ab­so­lutely smashed Chan­nel 5’s Big Brother in the TV rat­ings, as they are both shown daily.

And the com­pe­ti­tion is so rife be­tween the two pro­grammes, the pro­duc­ers of Love Is­land are ru­moured to have ex­tended the show by four days – so that the fi­nal lands on the same day that Big Brother ends.
