The research team at Reality Titbit take their jobs pretty damn seriously.
While others are plucking potential Love Island cast members out of thin air and basing their rumours around friends-of-friends emails saying they had applied, RTB came up with a strategic method.
We scoured through 100,000s of people on Instagram. All of these people are followed by either the Love Island casting page, ITV’s casting page, Caroline Flack or individual cast researchers’ Instagram pages.
You could be looking at a member of Love Island 2019 right here…

- Who is Wayne Bridge’s stunning ex? SAS: Who Dares Wins
- Start dates for every must-watch UK reality TV show in 2019
Paige is followed by both the Love Island casting page and the ITV casting call page.
We also took a glance at Nikita Gautam on Insta, who is the lead cast researcher for Love Island 2019. Chances are, as a researcher, you’d have to follow the Instagram page of those likely to appear on the show.
It looks like Paige is some sort of cam girl, perhaps previously working with Megan Barton Hanson. The pair can be seen exchanging compliments over Insta on the regz.
Here, Meg adds: “So Hot!”
Chris definitely looks like he is trying to get into TV, with public chats across his Instagram comments section with MTV.
But perhaps ITV got there first?
Olivia Newman Young
This blonde-haired beauty may look more fine-tuned for Made in Chelsea, yet she’s on the ITV casting list.
With a sizeable 42,000 followers, we’ve seen plenty of social media-famous make-up artists succeed on Love Island in the past.
At a glance, Jude would be a pretty random choice from the Love Island execs.
Here’s to more six-pack in the sun…
A London model with just over 20,000 followers on Instagram, Viviana would surely be one of the most-wanted contestants on season 5.
The brunette stunner has shades of Alexandra Cane about her and if Love Island casters followed up with the Insta research, she could be sitting by the villa pool right now.
Hannah is from London and designs bespoke lingerie.
She’s followed by a hat-trick of ITV casting researchers and could ignite the villa into flames.
An extra, actor, performer and model – Shannon fits the Love Island bill.
Without a post in April or May, perhaps she’s busy filming?
We’ve seen professional boxers enter the ring of love before, with Josh Mair on season 4.
If Oliver Edwards can get the time off from training he could be swinging shots at romance very soon.
Molly Smith and Grace
Based on Instagram posts, it doesn’t look like Molly or Grace could be in the original cast line-up – they’re still knocking about it England!
However, do you remember how many newcomers walk through the villa doors?
Molly is followed by Josh Denzel, Niall Aslam and celebs from the world of TOWIE and Made in Chelsea while Grace shares ties with Jack Fowler and Adam Collard on the Gram’
