While the Love Island villa can be the making of strong couples and even stronger friendships, not everyone stays in touch after their time on Love Island. This week, Love Island 2019 star Anton Danyluk revealed there’s only one of his co-stars he still speaks to, despite getting on well with everyone during his time in the villa.
Anton Danyluk: ‘It’s unbelievable’
Anton revealed on the Casa Spin podcast:
People come off the show, get their blue tick, get their million followers and go so far up their arses it's unbelievable. They forget where they came from. It's quite sad but at the same time I always appreciate the journey I had with the people in there.
It's like going on a holiday, meeting a group of friends, and then never speaking again. They change as a person, it's not the person you knew. The friendships are massive, they're really, really big in there. You think they're gonna last forever and they feel like brothers and sisters but obviously sometimes it just doesn't end up that way.
Anton did reveal that he is still in regular contact with one of his Love Island 2019 co-stars: Anna Vakili, saying that they are ‘very close.’ Judging by his Instagram, Anton also seems to be matey with some Islanders from different series of the show—including series 3 star Chris Hughes and series 4 runner-up Laura Anderson.
Anton’s co-stars on Love Island series 5 included Maura Higgins, Molly-Mae Hague, Tommy Fury, Chris Taylor, Michael Griffiths and Lucie Donlan. During his six-and-a-half weeks on the show, Anton spent time coupled up with Amy Hart, Amber Gill, Elma Pazar and Belle Hassan—who he continued dating for a short while afterwards.
