It was the most brutal comeback since Frankie Boyle dispatched his latest heckler – and ‘Muggy’ Mike’s return to the Love Island villa is sure to be just as devastating. We literally can’t wait for 9pm.
Timed perfectly with former love interest Olivia’s split from Chris, as in literally on the same day, Mike is now favourite to swoop for the newly-single Essex girl (4/6).
Chris has already protested that he ‘literally isn’t bothered’ but we can’t help but beg to differ.

But Tyla is top of the betting for who Mike might sleep with in the villa (Evens).
And that may be a better route for him, as Olivia is odds-on (8/11) to be coupled with on-off partner Chris at the end of the series. Besides, she’s mugged off Mike for Chris once already, and who’s to say she won’t do it again?
After the shock returns of Mike and Sam this week, glamour model Jess Shears – who was linked with Mike once off the show – is favourite to be the next returning contestant (4/6).
Spokesman Paddy Power said: “Like most trips to Magaluf, Love Island is the guilty secret of the summer – as intellectually stimulating as inhaling paint fumes, and yet still I keep sniffing.
“The producers are having more fun than the actual contestants, as proved by the return of Mike – the biggest mug out there, except Sports Direct’s.”
