Love Island fans convinced Laura’s lying about her age after photo emerges

The Love Island truthers think they’ve blown the whole thing wide open

There have been a number of conspiracies about Love Island this year, in fact, Twitter’s been like a reality TV-obsessed off-shoot of the David Icke forum.

First people suggested that Jack and Dani knew one another before the show kicked off. Then Friday’s episode was described as a ‘fix’ by viewers. And now a new theory has emerged that Laura lied about her age to get on the show.

The evidence? A post posted to her Instagram a couple of years ago.

The photo shows a bottle of champagne, a cake with candles, and some balloons with ’30’ on them.

The caption reads: “Thank you for our cards Le Meridien #redeemedthemselves.”

The picture was taken on 22 April 2016 – one day before her birthday – and if the theory is true then it would mean she is 32 years old.

Here’s what Twitter has had to say about it:

However, it appears it wasn’t her birthday, as the Daily Mail obtained Laura’s actual birth certificate confirming that she was, born in 1989.

It’s likely that the birthday was her ex-boyfriend, Welsh rugby player Mike Poole, who coincidentally shares the same date of birth as her.

Another conspiracy debunked.
