Love Island fans spot ‘massive mistake’ over newcomer Josh Samuel Le Grove

"Are the Love Island team on strike or something?"

Josh Le Grove from Casa Amor

With Casa Amor in full swing, the bombshell boys are making moves on the OG girls in a bid to make it back to the main Love Island villa.

Monday night’s episode had Love Island fans taking to Twitter after producers showed a clip of Josh Samuel Le Grove and Gemma Owen in bed together, but mistakenly labelled Josh as ‘Deji’ and Gemma as ‘Danica’.

Oops, someone’s getting an earful in their morning meeting. Our question is, why were Josh and Danica not sharing a bed?!

The goof has caused a stir on Twitter with some saying ‘the producers f***ed up’, while others made light of the mistake and hilariously wrote, ‘are the Love Island team on strike or something?’ Lol.

Mistake aside, Josh has an impressive Instagram following of 36k AND fans are already rooting for him and Danica Taylor… do we sense a potential finalist?

Here’s the rundown on everything you need to know about the Casa Amor newcomer...

How old is Joshua Le Grove?

He is 22 years old, making him only one year older than his new love interest Danica Taylor.

What does he do as a job?

Josh is signed with Nevs models where he models full time but is also a boxer and qualified personal trainer – a man of many talents.

Where is Josh from?

He’s from Essex.

What is his dating history?

Josh told ITV 'he’s always been single' but is hoping to settle down with someone who is 'up for a laugh, funny and doesn’t take themselves too seriously', as well as a girl that can 'hold their own'.

Who is Josh coupled up with on Love Island?

Monday night’s episode saw Josh and Danica getting cosy after they shared a snog – how romantic. The pair seem to be getting on well and with Danica being a single girl from the original villa, Josh looks like he’s got a good chance of making it back if he keeps grafting her. After Danica’s rocky start having no luck with any of the OG villa boys, Love Island fans have shown support for her and Josh on Twitter – ‘I am so here for Danica and Josh, she deserves to find someone’.

Wait, did Josh have blonde hair before Love Island?

Josh is unrecognisable in a transformation video he posted on TikTok in October 2021 (where he has over 1.4 million likes), showing him to originally be sporting longer blonde locks at the start of the video, which he captioned “Trust the progress”. Whatever hairstyle he might be sporting, we can’t wait to see what the rest of the series has in store for Josh.
