“I used to be in Blazin Squad”
“100% my type on paper”
“I’ve got a text”
We then explored the area and found the photo booth, (everyone knows I love a photo booth) complete with Islander costumes, props and quotes. Each session printed out 2 copies so it was perfect for some pictures with my housemate! Love it!
As well as this there was a wall inviting guests to write their ‘type’ on paper. This went down well, although some people seem to have some very strange ‘types’We sat back down in our groups to complete our quizzes (we’re still waiting to hear if we were the winners of a £250 voucher, fingers crossed) and for a game of bingo, which never happened. Heartbroken.
Before we could even relax it was 9pm and Caroline’s face appeared on the massive projection in front of us. Followed by a very TOWIE-esque opening sequence. I felt like I was at the cinema (I even clapped a few times, who even does that). The final episode seemed so much more dramatic on the big screen than it would’ve if I was watching alone at home. It was lovely to be surrounded by other people who had clearly enjoyed the past 7 weeks as much as I had. The audience were given signs with their favourite couple printed on in order to support them as the show went on. I claimed Camilla and Jamie as they seemed to be the most genuine to me and I feel that they both had their heads screwed on a little bit more than most of the contestants. Also, Just look at Jamie, he’s amazing. However, if Chris and Kem had chosen to couple up I would have been the first to have backed them, they deserved to win!We all followed the action with Gabby and Marcel placing fourth and Olivia and Christ finishing in third position. The crowd followed all the excitement with their cheering and booing as the final crowning drew closer.
As Amber and Kem were named as this year’s winners the entire venue erupted, a mixture of reactions filled the space as the new twist was announced (which was pretty much the same as last years big ‘twist’) and predictably the pretty pair decided to split the money between them.
