‘Hugo 2.0’: Love Island fans brand Will Young the ‘new Hugo Hammond’ after first episode sees farmer struggle to impress

Love Island returned to screens on Monday evening.

And viewers quickly picked up on some similarities with old contestants – in particular, branding Will Young as this year’s Hugo Hammond.

The 23-year-old’s debut did not go as planned after he did not get picked by any of the girls during the first coupling of the series.

The farmer repeatedly stepped forward for the single ladies, but he remained unselected to couple up with.

Now, viewers have taken to Twitter, claiming the islander is the new ‘Hugo 2.0’.

One user wrote: ‘I feel SICK watching the Hugo 2.0 show’, while another said, ‘the more I watch the more Will is giving Hugo Hammond vibes’.

Will was also compared to other contestants as a viewer suggested: ‘Will walking in the footsteps of Dr. Alex and Hugo’. 

Another agreed: ‘Will, Andrew and Hugo are the same people just in different bodies’. 

Viewers also picked up on Will’s compliments, saying: ‘Will dished out his 5th compliment in 4 minutes and still hasn’t been picked. Not another Hugo’.

Hugo shot to fame as one of the original contestants on the seventh series of Love Island in the summer of 2021. 

The teacher struggled to build a romantic connection with any of his co-stars until the notoriously fiery Casa Amor segment halfway through the season when Amy Day joined the cast.

However, the pair were then unceremoniously dumped from the island just five days after coupling up.

During his appearance on the show, Hugo confessed to having had sex in a road and kissing 10 girls in one night, with viewers questioning whether he still planned to go back to teaching after sharing such intimate details.

It was later confirmed the star wouldn’t be returning to his place of employment, as he was only on a ‘very short placement’.

After leaving the villa, the cricketer insisted he wasn’t prepared to ‘compromise’ for love during his time on the show.

Speaking in an interview on ITV’s Lorraine in August, he said: ‘I think potentially I didn’t really want to compromise for love. 

‘I’ve got a type and I know what I’m looking for and I wouldn’t say I was picky, but I just didn’t get that spark that a lot of the other boys were looking for with their girls.

‘I asked them, “After one or two chats was it something you could see long term?” and I just unfortunately didn’t get that feeling.’
