‘Love Island’ fever may currently be gripping the nation, but one person we never expected to be a fan of the reality show is Liam Gallagher

Turns out we were wrong, though, as the former Oasis frontman is so addicted to the antics unfolding in the Spanish villa that he even skipped parts of Glastonbury to catch up on it.

During an interview with BBC Radio 2′s Jo Whiley, Liam admitted he hadn’t seen many of the acts at the festival, as he’d been glued to ITV2. 

“I watched Dizzee Rascal’s set from my room yesterday, and then I watched ‘Love Island’” he said. “That’s where it’s at. That’s what goes on man.”

When Jo expressed her disbelief at him being a fan of the Caroline Flack-fronted series, Liam explained: “I’ve had four years of doing nothing, you know what I mean? I’ve gotta do something and I’ve gone to the dark side, and ‘Love Island’ it is.”

Liam was just one of the performers at this year’s Glastonbury, taking to the Other Stage on Saturday evening.

The festival also saw Stormzy and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke make some powerful political statements during their performances, while Foo Fighters attempted to break the swearing record set by Adele during their headline set on the Pyramid Stage.

Meanwhile, things have been just as eventful over on ‘Love Island’, with two recently axed contestants, Jess Shears and Mike Thalassiti, forced to speak out over rumours they’d hooked up since leaving the villa, behind Dom Lever’s back.

‘Love Island’ airs nightly at 9pm on ITV2.
