Meet the Love Island All Stars who were on standby but never made it into the villa

We were robbed of Danica

Love Island All Stars came under fire for having very little in the way of actual All Stars in the cast – and now former Islanders have been confirming they were originally meant to be on the show but ended up not entering the villa for some reason or another. Some are salty, some aren’t arsed – but it’s interesting to look what could have been. Here’s a rundown of the Love Island All Stars standby Islanders who never quite got onto the main show in the end.


Danica has now confirmed she was flown to Love Island All Stars by ITV to appear as a bombshell, only to never even get used.

“Four days in South Africa = tears and three huge mosquito bites on my forehead that swelled up my eyes and nose,” she wrote on her TikTok account.


Theo Campbell was in big drama with ITV last week after he said he was meant to be in the main OG Love Island All Stars cast and had video evidence to prove it – but was replaced with Luis at the last minute. Theo was livid, and said the show relegated him to bombshell later on which he then turned down.

The notorious icon MBH was the name on everyone’s lips for Love Island All Stars, and to see if she was a standby Islander who was gonna rock up as a bombshell was what we were all waiting for this series. Especially because she’d just done Love Island Games, like Toby and Georgia Steel.

She spoke to pal Vicky Pattison about it, saying “Do you know what, I was still up in the air. I done all the medical and everything. I was thinking, I knew I didn’t want to do the whole five weeks, like, it’s a long time to be away and so I thought I could go in near the end if there were any cute guys.

“But to be honest I think where I am 29, I think I would be in a very similar situation to Hannah Elizabeth. Our type of men is just different. All the boys seemed fun and they are stunning guys.
