Love Island really entertaining, admits Andrea Leadsom

Tory leadership hopeful Andrea Leadsom has admitted she is a fan of the reality show Love Island, describing it as a “really entertaining” watch.

The former cabinet minister said the ITV show was a “great programme” and that she had particularly enjoyed an episode in which the contestants were given dolls.

Asked if she had ever watched Love Island, she told the Press Association: “I have.

“I watched a clip of the one where they were talking about Brexit, and whether that meant you couldn’t go on holiday any more in Europe, which I was slightly taken aback by.

“But actually, the one I really enjoyed was where they had those dolls that were supposed to be their babies, and I thought that was quite amusing – they were all caring for a doll.

“Great programme, really entertaining.”
