‘Hugo 2.0’: Love Island fans brand Will Young the ‘new Hugo Hammond’

‘Hugo 2.0’: Love Island fans brand Will Young the ‘new Hugo Hammond’ after first episode sees farmer struggle to impress

Love Island returned to screens on Monday evening.

And viewers quickly picked up on some similarities with old contestants – in particular, branding Will Young as this year’s Hugo Hammond.

The 23-year-old’s debut did not go as planned after he did not get picked by any of the girls.

The farmer repeatedly stepped forward but he remained unselected.

Now, viewers have taken to Twitter, claiming the islander is ‘Hugo 2.0’

Hugo shot to fame as one of the original contestants on the seventh series of Love Island in the summer of 2021. 

The teacher struggled to build a romantic connection with any of his co-stars until the notoriously fiery Casa Amor segment halfway through the season when Amy Day joined the cast. 

However, the pair were then unceremoniously dumped from the island just five days after coupling up.

During his appearance on the show, Hugo confessed to having had sex in a road and kissing 10 girls in one night, with viewers questioning whether he still planned to go back to teaching after sharing such intimate details.

It was later confirmed the star wouldn’t be returning to his place of employment, as he was only on a ‘very short placement’.

After leaving the villa, the cricketer insisted he wasn’t prepared to ‘compromise’ for love during his time on the show.
