Hang on, is Boris Johnson entering the Love Island villa tonight?

Huge if true.

The past few episodes of Love Island have been explosive, and if some unsubstantiated Twitter rumours are to be believed, the villa is about to be shook by the arrival of a blonde bombshell.

That's right, social media is awash with the quite obviously tongue-in-cheek suggestion that Boris Johnson is set to make his reality TV debut on the hugely popular competition show, and given the fact that he's just handed in his resignation notice, it's all starting to align nicely.

The Conservative Party leader announced that he was resigning this morning, telling the British public that he is "sad to be giving up the best job in the world", and added that "them's the breaks".

Full-time employment has been a long-standing barrier for potential Love Island contestants, with many making the difficult decision to hand in their notice before heading off to Spain. It only stands to reason that Boris would be no exception and also quit his job before landing in the villa. The show is an absolute star-maker, and he wouldn't be the first well-known contestant competing this year. If he joins, he'll follow in the footsteps of Gemma Owen and Jack Keating, who have shown that you can join the show even if you already have a small level of fame. After all, Love Island contestants go on to huge things once they come off the show. We're talking a massive follower-count and even lucrative brand deals with the likes of I Saw It First and Pretty Little Thing.

What's more, tonight's Love Island states that it's going to feature one of the show's "most dramatic recoupling", and what could possibly be more dramatic than the country's PM entering the hottest reality show just hours after his resignation?

Of course, naysayers will point to Boris' personal life as proof that he's not actually joining the show. As a married man, it would certainly be unusual for him to look for love. But again, there's so much to be gained from appearing on the show that searching for your soulmate becomes an after-thought. Who knows, if he applies himself like Molly-Mae to use all 24-hours in the day, his career could explode right before our eyes.

Plus, imagine Boris and Ekin-Su in the villa together? One is a bold, often controversial leader who's not afraid to share what's on their mind while leading their country through difficult times, and then Boris Johnson would be there too. Absolute scenes.

*For legal reasons all of the above is clearly facetious. Obviously, Boris Johnson isn't joining the cast of Love Island any time soon, but like, imagine if he did x*
