Someone Has Compared All The Love Island Contestants To School Bags

Eric BlairJune 24th

Following all the high tension drama of last night’s Love Island, a fan of the show has provided us all with some much needed comic relief.

After we saw Maura and Tom first fall out, then make up over Tom’s ill-advised comments and then Yewande evicted from the villa following Danny’s dramatic recouping with new girl (and supermodel) Arabella, a Twitter thread comparing the Islanders to noughties school bags has broken the tension somewhat. 


Twitter user @craigblake_ has assigned Michael, Amber, Molly-Mae, Tommy, Amy and Curtis with the bags they would’ve had back in school - and it’s fair to say that he’s done a damn good job of it judging by the responses on Twitter.

Molly has been reimagined as a bright pink, zebra patterned Paul's Boutique handbag complete with plenty of charms, while - my personal favourite - professional boxer Tommy is presented as a black plastic drawstring bag from JD Sports. I’m 100% convinced this one is completely accurate.

Geordie beautician Amber, is given a Jane Norman bag adorned in pink and silver sparkly butterflies and hearts while her partner, Liverpudlian firefighter Michael is given a Nike 'Just Do It' black backpack.

The third tweet, shared by @craigblake_, reads: "If Amy and Curtis were school bags," alongside a picture of flight attendant Amy and a lilac Groovy Chick satchel, while professional dancer Curtis' is a black, smart and practical backpack. Perfect.

The thread has been retweeted and liked by thousands of people on Twitter, with users begging for the rest of the islanders to be given their schoolbag comparisons. 

Some have even thrown their own suggestions forward…
