Love Island fans fear Marcel has been secretly replaced

Some Love Island 2017 fans seem to think Marcel Somerville has been replaced on the show.

A shot in last night's episode got Twitter talking as Gabby Allen was seen in bed next to a 'random bloke'.


"Wait.... that's not Marcel ??? #LoveIsland" one viewer reacted.

Geordie Shore’s Gaz Beadle remarked: “Who the f**inghell is this guy #loveisand”

Another posted: "Hello @ITV, hope you're well. Who the hell is this and what have you done with Marcel?"


And on first glance, you can see where they're coming from.

However, others quickly pointed out that it was just an optical illusion caused by Marcel's tattoo on his arm under the night vision cameras.



"It's Marcel same Tattoo just different w/night light" one wrote.

The shot of Gabby and Marcel in bed prompted a number of other reactions too.

With all the other couples getting intimate, some questioned the apparent lack of a connection between the official boyfriend and girlfriend.

One claimed: "It is so blatant that Gabby doesn't really like Marcel! #LoveIsland"

Another agreed: "Gabby and Marcel have no chemistry. Gabby can only pretend for so long. #loveisland"

And a third commented on Twitter: "Gabby and Marcel are that married couple where the spark has died but they're staying together for the kids #LoveIsland"

Yesterday's episode had seen Marcel teasing Gabby for saying the L word in her speech at the recoupling.

“You’ve been trying to deny what you said in your speech,” he teases.

“I love Jamie. And I love Cam. And I think my family are going to love you [both] too,” she says, trying to play it cool.

Love Island 2017 continues nightly on ITV2.


Tonight's episode will see another dumping after viewers were asked to vote for their favourite of the official couples.

Love Island airs tonight at 9PM on ITV2.
