We probably need to explain what LARPing is.
LARPing, which is a real thing, stands for live-action role-playing and usually involves people getting into costume and acting out scenes from their favourite movies or books. It's a big thing in 'Star Wars' and 'Harry Potter' fandoms and is popular with nerds and is exactly the last thing you'd expect see on 'Love Island'.
Yet, on last night's 'Unseen Bits', there was an entire segment of the show dedicated to the four guys / nerds quoting entire scenes 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' and, yes, even taking part in a duel with one of them ending up the pool following an Expelliarmus spell.

As if to underline the point, Jordan then spent some time in the Beach Hut doing impressions of Hermione and Ron Weasley, so it clearly wasn't just a once-off thing either.

Imagine if the cowards at ITV actually had the balls to just put these moments into the actual show and not those endlessly circular conversations they all seem to have, week in and week out.
Sure, everyone's interested in all the relationship and stuff, but what about actually seeing if Ovie knows the lyrics to 'Home & Away' or if Maura from Longford is able to differentiate between the two Morbegs?
That's the show everyone wants to see.
