Why Love Island's Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea 'aren't getting a spin-off show'

This seems kind of harsh.

A spin-off series with Love Island's Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea has reportedly been ruled out - as bosses are said to fear they won't last.

The couple won Love Island 2019 - as well as the £50,000 prize - last Monday. And a few days ago, on Aftersun, they were talking about their big plans for the future.

However, ITV producers are said to be holding back on giving the OK to a series about this year's winners as they are worried they could slip before it airs.

A TV insider told The Sun:

“It’s been a publicity disaster in previous years, when couples split before their show aired or appeared to get back together just as the programmes came out.

“Jack and Dani’s series was a perfect example last year, with everyone saying their relationship was fake.

“This year bosses want to take the heat off the contestants’ relationships, especially as it’s been such a choppy year for couples making a go of it.

“Instead they are focusing on Winter Love Island and want to nail the casting for that series.

“Of course, they’re keeping a close eye on their couples to spot any potential for spin-off shows, but at the moment it’s certainly not looking likely.”

It comes a few weeks after it was announced Love Island would be moving to two seasons a year in 2020.

The first season, Winter Love Island, is expected to kick off in early 2020 in South Africa.
