One star at MN2S talent management agency, Jamie Jewitt, has a starring role in the show – along with his girlfriend Camilla Thurlow. The pair met on Love Island in 2017, and have quickly become one of the nation’s favourite pairings. The couple even headed out to a Greek refugee camp together, following the end of the show, to volunteer with people affected by the ongoing refugee crisis.

“So it worked out that if you wanted to put on a smart frock or wedding outfit of some form and call a number, [I] could arrange for you to have 100 a day to hang out in the background of a small British film, that’s what I did. They made up that particular title [aristocracy coordinator] – not ideal for someone who went into politics, I have to say.”
