Love Island narrator Iain Stirling has joked that he’s heading to the USA villa, despite being an engaged man.

Scottish comedian Iain took to Twitter to say, “Latest #LoveIslandUSA update. For those asking I will not be voicing the American Love Island. But I will be going into the villa!”

But don’t worry, everything’s fine with your favourite TV couple Iain Stirling and the UK show’s presenter Laura Whitmore.

The former CBBC presenter shared his thoughts after realising that US contestant, James McCool (unconfirmed whether this is his real name) was his doppelgänger – and it’s crazy how similar they look.

Fans were quick to agree that Iain shared an “uncanny” resemblance to the American show’s latest single man, who sports similar facial hair and even wears glasses, joking “That’ll be something to see!”

WATCH 'We're in love': Love Island's Iain Stirling gets cute about working with his gf Laura Whitmore 💞

The second series of Love Island USA will be available for UK viewers to watch from 7th of September, with the first episode airing at 9pm on ITV2. The contestants will be kept in a safe ‘bubble’ inside a stunning villa on top of Caesars Entertainment’s boutique hotel, The Cromwell, a Covid-secure hotel in Las Vegas.

British Love Island fans however have already been left underwhelmed by the lack of diversity in the new line-up, taking to Twitter to share their disappointment.

One Twitter user said, “You can’t cast black women to just claim you’re diverse. You need to work on the casting process.”

Another said, “Love Island already got me upset with the selection of girls, one black girl that’s all we get.”

So, whilst Iain isn’t going to be taking to our screens in September for Love Island USA, it’s rumoured that he’ll be following in his fiancée’s footsteps and is currently in talks to appear on Strictly Come Dancing. If his TikTok videos are anything to go by, we think he’ll be the star of the show…
