After an official picture was shared to the Love Island Instagram page recently, fans began making the comparison.

The post read: “Patsy’s been picky, but now it’s time to find her man! If you’re tall, dark & handsome… form an orderly queue!”

One fan commented: “I thought they were putting Jane McDonald in.”

Another wrote: “Looks like Jane McDonald.”

Someone else replied: “She does hahaha.”

Others gushed over Patsy, as one said: “She looks stunning.”

Another wrote: “I just know she will be a laugh,” followed by a red heart emoji.

Patsy will join Samantha, Nicole, Mimii, Jess and Harriett for the girls heading into the fellow. Meanwhile, Munveer, Ronnie, Ciaran, Sam, Ayo and Sean make up the boys.

Love Island tonight

In tonight’s launch episode, the islanders will head into the villa. As they get to know each other, host Maya enters.

She tells them: “Welcome to Love Island. It’s lovely to meet you guys but I think we should have a little game to get things going.”

The islanders then split into boys and girls. Maya says: “You’ve already started getting to know each other so you guys have had enough time for first impressions, right? First impressions count. Boys and girls, I now want you to rate each other in order of who you think has come across the most like boyfriend and girlfriend material, right down to who has given the least relationship vibes.”

The girls then organise the boys from most to least on who they think is boyfriend material.

Then it’s the boys who have to rank the girls on who they think is the most to least girlfriend material.

The girls will couple up with the boy who is placed in the same position as them. So who will pair with who?!
