Fans are now counting down the hours until the new series of Love Island finally kicks off, after last year’s summer series was postponed due to the Covid pandemic.
This year Laura has jetted to Mallorca with her baby daughter, 12 weeks, with her husband Iain Stirling, who narrates the show, staying in the UK.
Appearing on Loose Women on Friday via video link, Iain explained: ‘We are in London, I think, now, this is the thing with coronavirus, I never want to say anything because you never know, who knows what’s going to happen.
‘I don’t know what colour Majorca is going to be next week, it will be tartan by the time I’m done with it!’
