Dear TV bosses, please give Ovie Soko his own show


Dear TV bosses, please give Ovie Soko his own show

There is no doubt in viewers’ minds that our very own Maura Higgins and Ovie Soko are the stand-out savers of this year’s series of Love Island.

Just when we thought we couldn’t get enough of her blunt outbursts and general gasness, the 6 foot 7’ professional basketball player swoops in with ‘Ovie Time’.

Last night’s episode saw the 28-year-old bust out some moves and make up a rap about chickens as he cooked himself some breakfast.

And his reference 1998 movie ‘Don’t Be A Menace To South Central While You’re Drinking Juice In The Hood’ every time someone receives a text has viewers in stitches every time.

Despite Anna Vakili recoupling with a previous partner, Jordan, Ovie has remained cool, calm and collected and formed a wholesome friendship couple with Amber.

Fans took to Twitter to pretty much petition for the meme-maker to get his own show.

Currently, couple Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae are tipped to win the show, however, the odds that Ovie and Amber make it as the first friendship couple to take home the £50K prize money are growing higher each day.
