Love Island’s winners lose at real life
I wasn’t a bit surprised that Love Island’s Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham have split up. Did anyone really think it would last? Love Island may be a highly popular reality show – but the whole concept could not be further from reality.
It’s a dating game set in La-La land – and doubtless there are many wide-eyed 20-year-olds out there who could convince themselves they were in “love” with someone they’d known a few weeks if winning meant a moneyspinning media career.
Apparently, the split is down to “busy” schedules.
Well, if they think “busy” is being a celeb for six months while young and childless is a strain on their relationship, maybe they should try a different sort of reality show.
Spending your life worrying about paying the bills, raising the kids and keeping your career going is real life. And staying together in spite of all that is real love. What a wedding the world witnessed this week between Bollywood and Hollywood star Priyanka Chopra and American singer Nick Jonas.
Their three-day nuptials in Rajasthan involved a Christian marriage followed by a traditional Hindu wedding. There was even a cricket match between the two families! The bride wore red and white outfits to respect both cultures. And there were 1,000 guests at the main reception, including the Indian Prime Minister.
Every stage was captured on social media and soon became a global event with millions following developments.
Makes me wonder now just what I imagined was so stressful about my wedding, with a paltry 120 guests.
