Wes Nelson and Georgia Steel return to Mallorca to celebrate new series of Love Island


Former Love Island contestants Wes Nelson and Georgia Steel have returned to the island of Mallorca for a hot summer shoot.

The duo, both newly single, coupled up to shoot a series of sizzling snaps, spirited selfies and super slow-mo videos, designed to inspire fans to share their own snaps this summer for a chance to win a place for two at the Love Island Live Final.

The pair were reunited in Mallorca for two days of sun, sea and shots. Working with celebrity photographer Jim Marks, Wes and Georgia struck a series of poses that play with forced perspective to create a stunning series of holiday optical illusions.

The former Love Islanders hit the beach where they danced on top of a giant castle and dangled each other above the waves. Meanwhile back at the villa, a big Georgia flicked a little Wes into the pool, presumably for not being loyal, babes before a big Wes had fun putting little Georgia back in her box!

All the sizzling content was captured on the Samsung Galaxy S10+, the phone that this year’s Love Islanders will be using inside the villa. The competition celebrates Samsung returning for another year as the official ITV Love Island phone partner to power all the “I’ve got a text!” action when the series hits Brits screens on the 3rd of June.

Wes and Georgia have teamed up with Samsung to capture content throughout the new series of Love Island. They will be providing their hot takes on all the goings on inside the villa throughout the series run exclusively on @SamsungUK ’s social channels.

Wes Nelson says “What a sick opportunity to work with Samsung on Love Island this year. I loved making slow-mo videos when I was in the villa so it will be interesting to see what this year’s Islanders create with their Galaxy S10+ devices – the camera is amazing.

“It was great to go back to the Island where it all began, and I loved working with Georgia. I literally had her in the palm of my hand for most of the weekend, as you’ll see from the pictures. She’s quality!”

Georgia Steel says “The shoot was great. Wes and I had a brilliant time playing with perspective so that one of us was big and the other was small. I can’t decide if I prefer big Wes or little Wes!

“I love the pictures and can’t believe they were all shot on the Galaxy S10+. Me and my mates spend ages trying to get the best holiday snaps, so this was a great project to work on. We had a blast, I’m buzzing!”

Wes Nelson, 21, was a nuclear systems design engineer from Staffordshire before he shot to fame as a finalist on Love Island 2018 alongside then-girlfriend Megan Barton Hanson. He was runner up on this year’s Dancing on Ice, where he was a clear favourite with both the judges and fans at home.

Fellow Love Island contestant Georgia Steel, 21, was working as a barmaid in York before she entered the villa. She has since appeared in E4’s Celebs Go Dating and Channel 5’s Celebs on The Ranch.
