Iain Stirling, 35, made a guest appearance on BBC Radio 1 earlier this week, where he spoke to presenter Greg James, 37. The voice of Love Island was left cringing when he discovered he was responsible for one “major ick” in his relationship with wife Laura Whitmore, 37, who previously hosted the hit ITV show.
On his Radio 1 show, Greg spoke to his viewers about one specific “ick” in their relationships that plenty of people are guilty of.
“Iain Stirling,” Greg began, as Iain began groaning with embarrassment in the background.
“Have you ever kissed somebody in a moment of passion, pulled away from the kiss, looked them dead in the eyes and gone, ‘Hey’ or ‘Hi’.”
Greg continued teasingly: “Can you tell me you haven’t done that?”

“I need a minute,” Iain replied sternly, as Greg agreed: “Exactly my reaction.”
“Oh my god,” Iain said. “I might go as far as to say I’ve done that 50% of the time?”
This prompted Greg to burst out laughing, before Iain added: “Can I publicly apologise to my wife now?”
“Do you do it to Laura now, still?” Greg asked incredulously.
Laura was the host of Love Island between 2020 and 2022, taking over from the late Caroline Flack.
After Caroline tragically died by suicide while the sixth series was airing, Laura returned for the seventh series in June 2021.
Last August, it was announced that Laura would be stepping down from the role, while Iain continues to provide the voiceover - a job he has held since the show’s first series back in 2015.
Laura has since been replaced by presenter and model Maya Jama, who has already proven to be a big hit with ITV viewers.
