As far as Love Island goes, the iconic fifth series, which aired in 2019 and made stars of the likes of Amber Gill, Molly-Mae Hague, Tommy Fury and Curtis Pritchard is definitely one of the best. The cast? Immaculate. The romances? Incredible. The drama? EVERYTHING.
From Amy Hart’s “I was coming back here to tell you I loved you” speech to Anna Vakili and Jordan Hames’ explosive row just days before the final, this series gave us some of the most memorable moments in the history of the ITV2 show, however it turns out there was one scene that had a secret significance we had no idea about until now…
A TikTok user and singer by the name of Kira who claims to have previously dated 2019 Islander Michael Griffiths recently exposed how the show mugged him off when they played one of her songs when he broke down in tears over Joanna Chimonides in the Beach Hut.
Kira first teased the moment when she shared a video and wrote, “Thinking about when my ex went on Love Island and my song played over him crying.” She captioned the clip, “The devil works hard but the Love Island producers work harder.”
The video received over 374,000 views and left fans dying to know more, including one who wrote, “Naaame and shaaaaaame pls.” Another added, “Only Kris Jenner could plan something that perfect.”
The musician followed up in another video as she told her followers, “I was debating whether or not to post this but I feel like it’s too coincidental not to,” before cutting to a clip of Michael crying during his time in the villa while her song If It Makes You Feel Better plays in the background.

It looked like Michael and Amber were the pair to beat when they coupled up in the Love Island villa, but he left everyone gobsmacked when he decided their relationship wasn't working and dumped her in Casa Amor.
Look! More news!
Love Island fans were loving the ironic moment, with one commenting, “The editors did this 100% on purpose.”
Another wrote, “Never in a million years did I think the answer would be THIS satisfactory,” while a third remarked, “Ahahahaha Love Island producers knew what they were doing.”
Although they’re no longer an item, it seems there’s no bad blood between Kira and Michael as she wrote, “He’s actually one of the nicest guys I’ve ever dated,” when one commenter suggested she’d “had a lucky escape”.

Earlier this year, Michael revealed a jaw-dropping body transformation as he revealed he’d been “trusting the process” and working hard on his physique in the gym when he shared a before and after video that revealed the impressive results of his efforts to bulk up.
He later took to his Instagram story to explain, “From playing basketball in 2015 at 63kg - banging weight currently 90kg... consistency is key."
Michael’s now focused on helping others achieve their goals while working as a fitness coach.
