Hosting Love Island said to be a "dream gig" for Emily Atack

She could be good.

After Laura Whitmore announced she was leaving her role as host on Love Island, there have been rumours swirling around about who could take on the hosting gig.

With Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, Maura Higgins and Maya Jama's names all being thrown out, Emily Atack is reported to have said it would be a "dream role" for her.

According to new reports, Emily has had her own share of dramatic relationships and thinks this could be used to her advantage.

A source said: “Emily is flattered by people pushing for her to present Love Island – it would be definitely be a dream gig for her.

“She feels like she could really sympathise with and help the contestants as she struggled to find love herself."


According to Closer magazine, “she’s saying ‘Watch this space.'”

While Maura Higgins is a fan favourite to host, there are reports she could be heading to the Big Brother house instead.

After rising to stardom on Love Island in 2019, the 31 year old is now in the running to host the upcoming series as ITV is looking for "homegrown ITV talent".

Producers are reportedly saying that the Longford native has the "warmth" to interview each housemate but also has the ability to "hold the show together."

"Producers are determined to distance themselves from former Big Brother names but the former favourite, Mo Gilligan, is now busy in the States," a source told The Sun.

"Now bosses are looking at female stars who have the strength to hold the show together, while also the warmth to gently quiz contestants in the way that Davina McCall and Emma Willis did so well.

"Maura is a homegrown ITV talent who has all that - plus of course looks great on screen."
