Davina McCall says she contacted ITV about 'midlife' Love Island
Davina McCall has revealed she begged bosses to allow her to intervene when she saw one hopeful was struggling with the process.
Speaking to press including Express.co.uk the former Big Brother host explained: “There was a moment – I don’t know if it’s made into the show or not because I haven’t seen all the episodes.
“I went into work once, I did actually say to the production team, ‘Please let me just go and talk to this person’ because they were having a proper crisis.
“And this person was so lovely, and just could not see it for themselves.
“I had to go in and say ‘We chose you because you are brilliant. Like know that, you know?’ So I did that once.

Davina added it’s rare for her to intervene as she has to let the dates play out and see how the hopefuls feel.
She shared: “The more you get involved, actually it’s a mistake. What do I know? I don’t know these people and kids will be more likely to go in and come and go give them factoids, but you just got to let it play out.
“Sometimes things don’t work, sometimes they do. But it’s one of those great shows when actually when you just leave it alone, great things happen. “
Davina explained hopefuls come and go but “there’s no evictions” and instead the parents decide when it’s their time to leave.

“I think when you’ve exhausted everybody in the house and you think I don’t fancy anyone, it’s actually a hard place to be,” she remarked.
“So when somebody’s left, I’ve kind of hung out with them for a bit and have really good chats with them.
“And that’s been super nice. They are lovely. Every single person was absolutely lovely.”
