Kem Cetinay is worried his and Chris Hughes' spin-off show won't be a success
Kem Cetinay feels "under pressure" after he and Chris Hughes agreed to do their own spin-off show.
The 'Love Island' hunks won over the hearts of the nation last month when they struck up a "bromance" inside the villa while on the quest to find love and now ITV have decided to commission a series that will focus on the duo, but they are terrified it won't be a success.
Speaking to the Metro.co.uk, Kem said: "There's nothing I can say as I don't know the full gist but when they approached us I thought: 'Really? Is that actually happening?' It's going to put pressure on me and Chris, but from the reaction when we got it on Twitter I could not believe it. People went mad for it. I rang Chris and said: 'Is this really the reaction we got?' so I feel under pressure now."
But the heartthrobs are confident that ITV will create a show that will be "lighthearted" and fun.
Kem - who won 'Love Island' with his girlfriend Amber Davies and agreed to split the £50,000 prize money down the middle - explained: "The guys at ITV are amazing though, they know us better than we do and they know what we want from the show so they'll keep it lighthearted."
And, although they're being lined up for their own series, Kem has admitted he's barely seen Chris - who partnered up with Olivia Attwood - since they left the villa because they're both "so busy."
He said: "Chris is good but in the exact same boat as me, so busy. We're travelling all over the country but he's enjoying it just like me. It's a shame we haven't been able to see each other as much as we thought but with the show coming up we can spend plenty of time together."
