09 Aug University scholar set to study ‘Love Island’
As millions of reality television fans are mourning the end of this year’s series of ‘Love Island’, a Birmingham City University student is preparing to study the show as part of her undergraduate degree.
School of Media student Vicky Squires will be focusing on series two and three of the dating reality television programme, exploring how episodes of ‘Love Island’ might influence the behaviour of young viewing audiences.
ITV2’s ‘Love Island’ sees hopeful singletons move in to a villa together for weeks on end in a bid to find love.
Vicky’s study will focus on confrontational arguments between cast members, acts of rebellion and scenes of a sexual nature.
