Ready for More Reality TV
Love Island’s Sammy Root, who recently split from Jessica Harding, is wasting no time in moving on to his next venture in the world of reality TV. The 22-year-old has expressed his interest in joining the cast of Celebs Go Dating.
During an appearance on the Staying Relevant podcast with Sam Thompson and Pete Wicks, Sammy revealed his desire to continue working in television. When asked about the possibility of joining Celebs Go Dating, Sammy responded with enthusiasm, saying, “Possibly.”
Explaining his motivation behind wanting to stay relevant, Sammy stated, “You can see it as just being on TV. Everyone knows who you are, but also just staying relevant as in making a career out of doing something you want to do.”
Since breaking up with Jess, Sammy has been linked to other Love Island contestants, including Faye Winter. Recently, he was seen at the Pride of Britain awards with his arm around Faye, sparking further speculation about their relationship.
Celebs Go Dating and Love Island
Celebs Go Dating has become a popular destination for former Love Island stars. Past Love Island contestants such as Adam Collard and Chloe Burrows have appeared on the show. Other Love Island alumni who have participated in Celebs Go Dating include Laura Anderson, Liam Reardon, Curtis Pritchard, Megan Barton Hanson, Amy Hart, Eyal Booker, Olivia Attwood, and Georgia Steel.
Troubles Behind the Scenes
The split between Sammy and Jess was announced earlier this month, just three months after the Love Island final. Prior to their breakup, the couple attended red carpet events together but reportedly appeared distant. Insiders suggested that they were struggling to get along behind the scenes, and they fueled rumors of trouble in their relationship by attending showbiz events separately.
