Why Does the Love Island Cast Wear Sunglasses in Bed?

Former UK islander Elma Pazar, who starred in the 2019 series, set the record straight in early 2021.

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 Love Island Australia cast has also adopted the tactic in recent times, and who can blame them?! It’s genius!
