Ever since Caroline Flack, 40, first began presenting Love Island in 2015, there have been debates about the presenter’s time frame on set.
Laura’s husband, Iain Stirling, 34, even cracked a joke during the Love Island series.
And during the first episode, Iain was heard joking on the voiceover, saying, “She could have just texted me, but we wanted to cover our own expense on our flight back to Cape Town.”
