Love Island’s India Reynolds asks for ‘plus 30’ series and feels like their mum

Former Love Island star India Reynolds has asked for ITV bosses to create a "plus 30" series for older contestants after she confessed she felt old enough to be the Islanders' "mum".

It is a well-known fact that ITV producers will only accept contestants aged between 18 and 30 to take part on the show with most of the contestants in their twenties when they take part on the show.

But as the show has grown in popularity, fans have been asking for an older version of the popular ITV2 dating programme to be produced which would allow for a wider range of people to apply to be on the show.

The starlet went on to tease that if the telly bosses produced a more inclusive series of the show which would open up the pool of applicants to those who are older with a more diverse range of body types that she may even be interested in entering again.

When asked if she would go back on the show if it was aimed at older contestants, she hinted: “I mean, never say never.”

It comes after the starlet addressed the complaints about Gemma Owen’s being too young for the show, as she joined the cast of the eighth series just weeks after she turned 19.

India added how she believes the starlet is more than mature enough to take part in the show but she was more concerned about how she would handle the added fame after she left the show.

She explained: “I mean, I think she’s absolutely gorgeous and I think for a 19-year-old, she’s very mature.

“You know, she’s coming across really well, like I think she’s definitely got her head screwed on but I do think 19 is very young to go on the show just because, more when you come out, it’s a lot of pressure.

“And I think mentally it can be really difficult to deal with but she’s coming across really mature so hopefully she’ll be absolutely fine.”
