Richard Madeley threatens to leave the country over Love Island 2022 returning in days

RICHARD Madeley has threatened to leave the country over reality show Love Island returning next week.

The Good Morning Britain host made viewers laugh with an unscripted comment today as bikini-clad Love Islanders filled their screens.

The broadcaster, who is often compared to the fictional local radio host Alan Partridge played by Steve Coogan, today made the particularly Partridgesque comment.

When Arnold introduced three Love Island cast favourites, including Michael Owen's daughter Gemma Owen, when Madeley, 66, quipped: "If there’s ever a good reason to join a queue out of the airport and get out of the country, that is it."

Reacting to his contempt for the show, one viewer said: "Just remember when queuing at the airport for a flight out #GMB #RichardMadeley some folk can't afford a holiday (me included)."

Richard was also unimpressed yesterday and 'couldn't care less' as the Love Island line-up was announced.

The outspoken presenter even apologised to viewers at home after his co-host Charlotte Hawkins screamed the reality TV show's phrase "got a text!"

Richard refused to hide his disdain for the hit ITV2 dating show which is making a comeback on Monday, June 6.

Excited Charlotte said she was a fan and had the honour of announcing the first singleton going into the villa.

"It's not just the weather that will be hotting up over the next few weeks because summer officially starts with the nation's favourite dating show," she said.

The Love Island logo filled the screen behind their desk, and Richard dropped his head into his hands.

Charlotte continued over the Love Island theme tune. "You might get a clue from the music… Yes Richard, it is back with a bang."

She finished with the announcement as Richard groaned and he finally said. "Yeah, here we go…

"Sorry, I can't summon up the enthusiasm. I know loads of you love Love Island…"

Love Island starts at 9pm Monday 6th June on ITV2 and ITV Hub.

Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox
