New series? The second ever winter series of Love Island kicked off on Monday night with a bang, and fans have been quick to put in their predictions of which islanders are going to mirror those of seasons pasy, including Tanyel Revan and Kai Fagan (pictured)
Series five contestant Michael Griffiths and his pals were dubbed the name by Love Island fans after an iconic moment which saw him tell Amber Gill she was ‘childish’ but with his Newcastle accent, sounded a lot like ‘chaldish’.
And after Kai switched between three girls during the season’s first ever coupling-up, as well as using the term ‘wifey for lifey’, fans have decided Kai is next to join the group.
After insisting to Maya Jama that he was in Love Island to find ‘the one’, Kai then stepped forward for, and was matched with Anna-May Robey.
He quickly recoupled with ring girl Olivia Hawkins, when she ‘stole’ him while making her selection, despite Kai not having stepped forward for her.

Fiery: Plenty of viewers made comparisons between Tanyel Revan (left) and Anna Vakili (right) who took part in the 2019 series of the show, as her London accent and fiery nature is similar to Anna’s, who lost it at her boyfriend Jordan Hames and was dubbed ‘Storm Anna’
Kai then ditched Olivia by stepping forward for Tanyel Revan, who selected him out of all the men in the villa.
Before signing up to Love Island, Manchester-born Kai worked as a science and PE teacher, and has also played semi-professional rugby for Burnage RFC.
Explaining why he’s decided to go on Love Island, Kai said he is hoping to find real feelings with another woman as they will be spending so much time together in the villa.

While many viewers discovered Kai for the first time when he entered the Love Island villa, this wasn’t be the first time he’s had a brush with the celebrity world.
Fans wrote of the new addition to Destiny’s Chaldish: ‘Kai’s got destiny’s childish written on his forehead,’ while another added: ‘Mark my words kai will be part of destiny’s childish in 2 episodes.’
A third said: ‘The UK pretending to be shocked in 3 weeks time, when Kai brings another girl back from Casa Amor’.
‘Kai has joined the group,’ a fourth wrote. ‘Destiny’s Childish has a new member.’
And plenty of viewers made comparisons between Tanyel and Anna Vakili who took part in the 2019 series of the show.
‘Anna reincarnated’: ‘I’m calling it now tanyel is anna reincarnated,’ one fan wrote on Twitter
Her London accent and fiery nature left lots of people wondering if there will be any moments like ‘Storm Anna’, which saw the influencer lose it at her boyfriend Jordan Hames after he told new girl India that he was attracted to her.
‘I’m calling it now tanyel is anna reincarnated,’ one fan wrote on Twitter.
Another added Ekin-Su Culculoglu into the mix, the 2022 winner: ‘Tanyel is basically Ekin Su and Anna Vakili all in one lol she gonna do a madness on these men !!!!’
Someone else similarly said: ‘I’m praying that tanyel is like storm anna’, and another wrote: ‘Can’t wait for tanyel and kai to have their anna and jordan moment.’
One fan wrote: ‘Tanyel is giving Anna Vakili mixed with Ekin-su and I feel like she’s guna take nooooooooo s**t.’
Farmer Will Young, 23, was sadly the last man standing after not being picked by any of the girls during the first coupling-up.
The new Hugo? Farmer Will Young, 23, was sadly the last man standing after not being picked by any of the girls during the first coupling-up, which left fans comparing him to 2021’s Hugo Hammond
Comparisons: 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’
Many fans compared him to Hugo Hammond, who was on the seventh series of Love Island in 2021.
