Margot Robbie has given her verdict on this year’s series of Love Island, admitting she’s not been as impressed as with other seasons.

Speaking to The Sun, she said: ‘This hasn’t been the best Love Island season ever, but that hasn’t stopped me watching it.

‘Paige has probably been my favourite — but for pure entertainment I think Davide and Ekin-Su have made the season.’

Explaining her love for the series, she added: ‘Love Island reminds me of living in London — watching it with my girlfriends when everybody was home from work.’

It comes after last year, the Barbie star admitted that while she ‘adores’ Love Island she was ‘struggling’ to get into the 2021 series.

The actress – who is watching the episodes on a delay because she lives in the United States – loves the ITV2 dating show, but hasn’t been as gripped by the action in the villa this time round. 

Appearing on ITV’s Lorraine via video link with Idris Elba to discuss their new Suicide Squad film, she said: ‘The current season, I haven’t really got into yet.

‘I’ve struggled to get into this season but it’s still early days, and with the lag time when you get the episodes in America, I’m a little behind. But I adore it, I adore the show.’ 

However, she and The Suicide Squad director James Gunn – who is also a big fan of the programme – chatted about the villa drama during filming for the comic book blockbuster.

She said: ‘I adore Love Island so much. Do you know who else really loves Love Island? Our director James Gunn, [he’s] also a huge Love Island fan.

‘We would talk about it all the time. We probably spoke about Love Island more than we spoke about this film while we were on set. We had our drink bottles on set.’

The Wolf of Wall Street star recently backed Liberty Poole as her ‘favourite’ out of this year’s Islanders.

She told The Mirror: ‘I love Liberty. She is my favourite, for sure. It’s incredible how much you care about these people you have never met.’

And while Margot – who is married to Tom Ackerley – has taken her fandom to another level in the past by throwing herself a ‘Love Island’-themed party, she wouldn’t have ever gone into the villa herself to find a partner.

She added: ‘There is no way I was ever cool enough to be on it.

‘I don’t think people want to spend a summer watching a girl who sits around and drinks beer and eats chips every evening. I am glad I found love the conventional way!’

And Margot took her love for the famous series to new heights in 2020 as she brought 2019 contestants Lucie Donlan, Michael Griffiths and Jordan Hames back to her apartment after the  London premiere of Birds of Prey. 

Just joined by her close friends, the surfer, 23, the former firefighter, 29, and the model, 26, bonded over longboarding and were even invited to hang out with the actress in Los Angeles in the future.

Detailing their fun-filled outing, reality star Lucie shared: ‘After the film, we got a video message via an Instagram DM of Margot saying, “Please come to the after-party!” We got ready really quickly and joined her at The Oxo Tower. 

Catch up: She said: 'We would talk about it all the time. We probably spoke about Love Island more than we spoke about this film while we were on set. We had our drink bottles on set'

‘Michael and Jordan got tequila shots in, then we went back to her apartment with a few of her close friends. We chatted about surfing, because she’s Australian, and she loves longboarding. It was so relaxed – she was just chilling in her slippers! 

‘She said, “If you’re ever in LA, hit us up and we’ll hang out.” I just couldn’t believe it’, she added to The Sun.

Margot was previously compared to Love Island star Megan Barton Hanson thanks to their similar facial features and stunning blonde locks. 

But according to the actress, she ‘doesn’t see the resemblance’ to the glamour model, 27, despite being a huge fan of the reality show.

While Margot was catching up on one of the episodes of the 2018 series, Dr Alex George mentioned on the show that Megan had a likening to her.

The Wolf Of Wall Street star said that she was over the moon that the Islanders knew who she was, but added ‘I personally don’t see the resemblance’ to Megan.

Margot explained: ‘The other night we were watching and I think it was Alex who said that, and we all lost it! We were like, “Oh my God they know who I am on Love Island!”

‘I personally don’t see the resemblance. We’d just finished drinking beer and eating crisps and saying, “We’re so disgusting we could never be on Love Island we’re such fatties, they would never let us on”. 

‘They all have some amazing bodies and they are so gorgeous and are always so done up and looking incredible, and then they said [I look like her] and we were like “Oh my God!”.’
