Molly Marsh is set to join the show

'Love Island' bosses are hoping to convince Molly Marsh to join the ITV show

Panto star Molly Marsh has been lined up for the new series of 'Love Island'.

The 24-year-old actress is locked in talks over joining the ITV show, after she was invited to tour the winter 'Love Island' villa in January.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Molly was scouted after visiting the villa in South Africa earlier this year.

"She was on the tour as an invited guest when she caught the eyes of producers.

"Molly made it clear she would love to be a part of 'Love Island' and she was told to audition. After going through the process, she’s now a shoo-in to fly to Majorca later this month.

"She is a star on the rise and comes from a showbiz family – her mum Janet even had small roles on 'Coronation Street' and 'Still Open All Hours'."

'Love Island' bosses think she's perfectly suited to the show, and they're now trying their best to finalise an agreement with the actress.

The insider added: "Molly has made it clear she’s got what it takes to make a bang and ITV love her."

Meanwhile, Maya Jama recently revealed that she's loved her experience of hosting 'Love Island'.

The 28-year-old TV presenter joined the show in 2023, and Maya has described it as her "dream job".

Maya – who replaced Laura Whitmore as the host – told Grazia: "Hosting 'Love Island' has been so amazing; I love it so much.

"It feels like my dream job if I’m honest, I love just popping in and being able to add my own personality to it, and the outfits I get to wear! I’m obsessed with the series and have been for years."
