Ian Holloway Weighs In Once Again On 'Unbelievably Annoying' Love Island

Ian Holloway Weighs In Once Again On 'Unbelievably Annoying' Love Island

With the Love Island finale arriving tonight, it's only right that we hear from one of the show's most outlandish pundits, Ian Holloway.

The former QPR and Crystal Palace manager has expressed his opinion on the show before, and he has once again given his two cents on the programme.

Speaking to TheSackRace.com, the outspoken Holloway was struck by the seemingly immoral way the show treats its contestants:

It’s a train crash of a programme. It’s somehow quite mesmerising because you know this Gogglebox and all that, we do like to watch people doing things...

At the end of the day, life is about respecting the other person and putting them above yourself and I don’t see that in that programme and I find it unbelievably annoying...

I think some of those contestants are told what to do by the people running it, for viewing ratings and figures, and I honestly I think it’s very sad.

You shouldn’t play with people's emotions. In football, nobody can cheat, anyone who’s ever cheated or tried to fix results gets done quite rightly because we don’t know what’s going to happen in football.

Holloway, having said previously that he watches the show "by accident", was again asked again about watching the show purposefully. He said that he's not forced to watch the show, instead he's playing darts, getting "better and better" at the sport too.

Holloway saved some compliments for Tommy Fury, who he'd love as a son-in-law. "I would have liked him to like one of my daughters," said Holloway. "But unfortunately two of them are married and the other has a regular boyfriend and Tommy seems to be quite happy with Molly-Mae."

In typical Holloway fashion, he lambasts Curtis' hair for looking "like a badger sitting in a bird's nest.”
