It feels like Love Island ended 10 minutes ago and yet fans are already gearing up for summer 2018, which, in fairness, does seem like an awfully long time away - 10 months to be exact.
Thankfully, we have some news to share about the first Love Island contestant for the 2018 series. Katie Snooks, a well-known British Youtuber and social media personality, has hinted she will be appearing on the next edition of Love Island.
Katie is a photography graduate who Youtubes the latest fashion and beauty trends and is pals with fellow vlogging sensation Zoella. The news broke from Snooks's Twitter account as she tweeted out a screenshot of an email with the subject header "Love Island 2018."

More Katie on TV wouldn't be a bad thing... but no, not this. Please don't! ?

Fans think the Youtuber would be perfect for the series as she is no stranger to discussing her love life, openly vlogging about her "worst" dates.Here's Katie vlogging about an over-enthusiastic guy she met on Tinder, which gives you a fairly good idea of how real she'd be on the show:
