We're big Love Island fans here at Closer and after watching every single episode of Love Island 2024 so far (which isn't hard because we're only on week two but still...), we can confidently say we're huge Samantha Kenny stans.

Not only are we loving her accent but she won us over during the balloon challenge when she told Joey Essex, "I want my pizza, just pick someone".

Since she recoupled with TOWIE's Joey, lots of fans have guessed that she's mainly with him for the #fame and to be honest, the fact that she quotes Gemma Collins hasn't helped.

However Love Island fans reckon they've spotted Samantha's 'game plan' and if it's true, then it's absolutely genius.

After viewers noticed that she's often helping the girls with all their relationship drama, one person wrote on Twitter, "I’ve clocked Samantha, she’s doing up informant so Uma doesn’t crack on with Joey like she wanted to in the beginning 😂😂 #loveIsland."

Someone else said, "Exactly! She wants to famz her [act like family] so she 'has her back', good thing she’s a hypocrite no one is safe even if it’s Sean she’ll take 😭😭😭."

A third commented, "🤣🤣🤣🤣 Tactics working."

One more added, "You know what that makes so much sense!!!!"

As bizarre as that would be, we reckon Samantha is probably just bored of the love triangles and is hoping the storylines will be over soon.

Well, that's what we're hoping.

We have Ayo Odukoya, Mimii Ngulube and Uma Jammeh's triangle and then Ronnie Vint is torn between Harriett Blackmore and Jess White.

We're only two weeks into the show and these Islanders are moving mad... Bring on Casa Amor 2024 please.
