So everyone is in agreement then that Wes's mum looks like Gail Platt from Corrie?

On Sunday's penultimate episode of Love Island, the contestants' parents arrived en masse at the villa.

Tense!

However, thankfully for the couple in question, Wes's mum and dad were entirely approving of his romance with Megan.

Certainly the words "we're proud of you and we like Megan," is about as good as it's gonna get in terms of parental favour following a stint on a reality TV show that's garnered millions of views.

It didn't take long either for Love Island fans to make a rather canny observation about Wes's mum and one of the most popular characters from Corrie.

"Anyone else think Wes's mum looks like Gail Platt from Coronation Street without the bob?" asked one viewer on Twitter. Indeed, it was a sentiment echoed by many.

Gail has been played by Helen Worth for the last 40 years and is thus something of a Corrie institution.

(Although one other person - pretty random! - felt she better resembled Gillian McKeith, the reality TV nutritionist).

On Sunday's episode, Wes Nelson was seriously excited about getting to see his adorable mum and dad... that and he was eager beaver to get their blessings for his relationship with Ms Barton Hanson.

He also confirmed that when he arrives back home in England he's going to be moving in order to be based closer to Megan.

We're almost at the end... Love Island wraps up on Monday. Eeeek!
