Why do the Love Island Australia 2021 Cast Wear Sunglasses in Bed?

Former UK islander Elma Pazar, who starred in the 2019 series, set the record straight earlier this year.

After fans questioned the odd sleeping accessory on Twitter, she took to her socials to explain why they’re a necessity.

“The light is so bright when it flicks on and also I don’t know many people that wake up pretty in the mornings,” she said. Well, there you have it!

If you ask us, seeing genetically blessed people wake up looking a little bit worse for wear, makes them SO much more relatable!

The Sunnies Trend Isn’t The Only Thing Taken from the UK Season!

Since Love Island Australia is created by ITV — the very same company that heads up the British version — fans of the series will note that the aesthetic of the villa is the same, the water bottles have the same design AND the music is just as good as our counterparts over the pond.

We’re sure you will agree that the dating show’s music soundtrack is absolute FIRE. If you’re like us, then it has you scrambling for Shazam every episode.
