Love Islands Ovie Soko revealed he was never invited to be part of the casts official WhatsApp group, and our hearts have broken.

After Maura Higgins revealed the group chat was basically dead, the 28-year-old – who came third on the show with India Reynolds – explained he was never in it in the first place.

Sounds a little chaaaldish…

Speaking exclusively to at the launch of his collection with ASOS, he told us: A lot of people have been asking about this Love Island WhatsApp group…

This seems to be the thing.

I mean, Ive got everyones numbers from Love Island, but Im not part of any group…

So maybe theres a group out there that Im not part of… Are you telling me I should be part of the group?!



Laughing the apparent snub off, the basketball player joked: Youve just let me know Im not part of the group, oh wow. Wow.

Thats fine hun, you can be in ours….!

While he might not have made it into the group chat, Ovie has absolutely no regrets about taking part in this years series and wouldnt trade his experience in for the upcoming South Africa season.

When asked whether he thinks winter Love Island will be as popular with fans, he continued: Im not sure, I dont know whether its going to be as big as the summer one or not, I really couldnt tell you.

Thats human nature, you always want more at the end of the day.

Im happy with Majorca, Majorca was a good experience.

He met India in the Majorcan villa after all…

Ovie was recently announced as ASOS first ever celebrity collaboration – and the news was celebrated with #NationalOvieDay, which is absolutely no less than he deserves.

ITV2 viewers had been begging his range after noticing his unique style in the Island.

The people got what they wanted, he yelled. Its wild, the whole journey thus far has been dope. Something I couldnt really put entirely into words, but its just been amazing. I think what it represents, its a lot bigger than a TV show could ever be.



Its given hope to everyone, in my opinion, and let them know that being yourself can get you good things in life. Having good, positive energy does go a long way.

Speaking about his seven-piece collection, which has been inspired massively by dad Raymonds artwork, he was adamant that this would be the focal point of the clothes.

That was a huge part, when we sat down with ASOS and started going through what my ideas were, what my vision was, he said.

Ive had a lot of influences growing up, but my dad and brother have been the main male influences in my life. Why would I steer away from that now?

And Ovie teased that the collection – which features a selection of his trademark bucket hats – would also look good on women.
