What do the viewers think of Laura on Aftersun?

After Laura's debut on Aftersun, fans were impressed with how the host had immersed herself in the Love Island family so quickly. One took to social media to share their views, writing: "Already I much prefer Laura Whitmore. She seems way more friendly, like a pal talking to people on her same level." Another viewer seemed impressed with Laura, writing: "I know it's been 20 seconds but I’m massively obsessed with Laura Whitmore already."

One viewer even pitched an idea for Laura's boyfriend and fellow Love Island team member Iain Stirling to join the Aftersun family: "Now that we have Laura Whitmore presenting, can we have Iain Stirling actually come on the show to present with her. Like, imagine them giving couple advice to the islanders." We'd love to see this happen!
