Love Island fans left 'praying' and concerned for stars after 'villain' makes return

Love Island 2023 fans have spotted a past series 'villain' has made a return, leaving them concerned and "praying" for the Islanders.

The infamous yellow beanbag is back in the villa, and fans of the show will know it has a tumultuous history with past stars of the show.

Last series' winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu was one of the stars who first flagged there was a 'curse' linked to anyone that sat on the yellow beanbag, and it became such a thing that no one would sit on it.

While viewers have remembered this, Islanders clearly have not as some of them have been sat on it during the first few episodes of the latest winter series.

It seems it's already doing its dark work too, as three of the people who have sat on it on camera are now facing bad luck.

Lana Jenkins sat on it this week, and then shortly after her current partner Ron Hall was chosen for a date with new girl Zara Deniz Lackenby-Brown.

The date went well and now Ron has confessed his head has been turned, leaving fans convinced the beanbag is back to its old tricks.

Then there is Shaq Muhammad who also sat on the chair, and now his current partner Tanya Manhenga has had her head turned by newcomer David Salako.

A teaser for the next episode hinted Shaq is also tempted by Zara, spelling trouble in paradise just a day on from his kiss with Tanya.

Will Young has also been seen sitting on the chair, and so far he has been unlucky in love.

Viewers were quick to notice the goings on, and believed the chair was to blame - leaving them worried about what was about to happen.

Taking to Twitter, one fan said: "I pray for whoever will sit on the cursed yellow bean bag."


A third viewer added: "Shaq sat on the yellow bean bag, s**t about to go down," as a fourth said: "don’t they know about the yellow bean-bag?!!"

The comments kept on coming too with another reading: "Yellow bean bag strikes again," echoed by another tweet that said: "LANA GET OFF THE YELLOW BEANBAG."

Others noticed some of the Islanders appeared to be avoiding the yellow beanbag and leaving it out, questioning if it was to do with the apparent curse.

Love Island airs every night at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
