The voice of Love Island is coming to Queen’s Theatre and he can’t wait to meet the ‘geezers’ of Hornchurch.

Iain Stirling has been the voice of the popular ITV 2 show since 2015, and the Bafta-winning stand-up will be bringing his ‘U OK HUN? x.’ tour to the Queen’s Theatre next weekend (Sunday, September 16).

Despite not playing at Hornchurch before he has in the past played shows in Romford, and said the audience were always a bunch of characters and geezers and that he couldn’t wait to speak to those coming to see him perform at his next show.

The Edinburgh native has extended his tour for the third and final time, adding an extra 23 dates and the dates will follow his return to the Love Island audio booth, as well as hosting the second series of ITV2’s CelebAbility.

He spoke to the Recorder and said that those coming to watch him will be treat to lots of funny stories, focussing on a number of different things including the rise of the millenials and mens inability to talk about emotions.

He said: “The stories have got to be funny because it is what keeps people coming back to watch the show.”

Mr Love Island said that his favourite moment from the show had been in season one when Jordan Ring aka Hulk, had asked Zoe Brown to come and have a look at the ‘big spider’ in the bathroom - which later turned out to be a euphemism for a certain something....

Season one also brought Iain’s favourite couple - Jon Clarke and Hannah Elizabeth.

The Scot released his first book a few months ago ‘Not ready to adult yet’ and said that since then he has enjoyed meeting his fans after gigs and signing books for them.

And he said he will certainly be doing the same after his show in Hornchurch.

Iain will be appearing at the Queen’s Theatre at 8pm on Sunday, September 16 and tickets are still on sale and are available online.
