It’s no secret that Love Island bosses love casting Islanders with celebrity relatives. Back in 2018, we had Dani Dyer, daughter of Danny. In 2019, it was Tommy Fury, brother of Tyson. In Winter Love Island, Rochelle Humes’ lookalike sister Sophie Piper was cast. This year, it looks like we’re getting a double-whammy of celebrity offspring.
Holly Ramsay for Love Island?
Joining Harley Benn—son of boxing legend Nigel—in the rumoured 2021 Love Island line-up is Holly Ramsay, daughter of Gordon. 21-year-old model Holly has been rumoured as a potential Love Island contestant for months but it’s now looking more and more likely that she will be heading to the villa.
According to a Love Island source who spoke to The Sun, Holly has cancelled planned modelling work this summer to clear her schedule for Love Island. The source said:
Holly is the big signing—she’s the one they really wanted to get. It’s taken months of talks but Holly's now committed to it.’
The source continued:
She’s a very exciting addition to the cast and will be a massive hit with the viewers. Holly’s been brought up to work hard, show respect and not to rely on her dad’s celebrity. She’s finding her own way and will be successful in her own right.

If Holly Ramsay really is heading for the villa, we’ve already got an idea of some of the other Islanders she could be joining. The Sun has previously reported that junior doctor and Covid hero Toluwa Adepeju is set to go into the villa, alongside fire-eater Alexis Bailey and recruitment consultant James Price. ITV continues to officially insist that:
At this time any names being linked to the show are speculative.
