Love Island is back for season 5 and already the show has proven to be more chaotic than the last.

From casting blunders to mistaken identities, the show has been a rollercoaster and it’s only just begun…

So who is Love Island’s Curtis Pritchard and why does everyone else keep thinking he’s a famous comedian?

Read on to find out everything you need to know about this hilarious confusion!

Meet Curtis Pritchard…

Curtis is a professional dancer from Stoke-on-Trent.

The 23-year-old is known for his work on the Irish version of Dancing With the Stars!

Before appearing on Love Island, Curtis was dating his Dancing With the Stars co-star Emily Barker, who had also been his dance partner between the ages of 12 and 14.

But that’s not the thing that have people curious about Curtis…

Who have people confused Curtis with?

Curtis has been muddled up with comedian Ed Gamble. Ed hosts the popular Off Menu podcast with fellow comedian, James Acaster.

His fellow comedians seem to be the ones pointing out the similarity between the two. And it’s clearly a dangerous game being friends with comedians… They’ve all been bantering him off!

Even Ed’s mum has the two confused, poor lad.

Similarities and differences

Aside from their haircuts and blue eyes, we’re stuggling to see the similarity between these two beefcakes.

They’ve both been blessed with good looks but what else is there?

Check out some pics of the two to see where the similarities lie and where they stop…
