We were devastated when there was no Irish contestant in Love Island.
But as we watched it tonight our ears pricked up when we heard a familiar voice.
Dancing with the Stars contestant and Eurovision star Brooke Scullion’s dulcet tones were belted across the villa on Monday night.
And we couldn’t be more delighted to see the Derry girl absolutely smash it on an international stage.
Speaking to VIP Magazine about the incredible news, she enthuses: “I’m so excited I could cry! This is mad, absolutely mad! Wow, I’m delighted.”
As she should be.
Brooke isn’t the first Irish star who has appeared on the show. Dermot Kennedy is a go-to for the reality series and his tracks have played multiple times over the year.
During the summer series, Orla Gartland was over the moon when she heard her song You’re Not Special Babe play on the show.
“yesterday I broke my toe and then my song ‘you’re not special babe’ was in love island so yes we all go from heartbreak to happy to heartbreak etc,” she cheekily tweeted.
Orla’s song Why Am I Like This? went viral after it featured in Netflix’s Heartstopper last year.
Meanwhile, singer Aimée was equally as delighted when she heard her song Bulletproof on the Love Island as well.
She admitted: “Something that I’ve manifested came true tonight…I can’t believe it.”
“My song Bulletproof was on Love Island. I wrote it in my room during lockdown…I was really struggling. Amazing things happen when you push through hard times and never give up.”
She jokingly wrote: “Poor girl is heartbroken…meanwhile me,” along with a video of her sharing her delight while contestant Danica cried on the screen.
She captioned the video of her sharing her delight: “anyone else wish they could give @_danicataylor a hug can’t believe my song “bulletproof” was on love island tonight thank you all so much for your lovely messages x.”
