This 90-Second Clip Of Stormzy On Love Island Is Up For A BAFTA

The new series of Love Island is just around the corner and Chris, Kem, Olivia and Marcel feel like estranged friends (especially now that most of them have since broken off their relationships, sob). But we'll always have a little cubbyhole in our hearts for the series of 2017, the year the ITV2 dating show truly swept the nation, spawning thousands of memes and even piquing Jeremy Corbyn's interest.
If you were one of the millions of viewers for whom phrases like "my type on paper" and "my head is gone" became crucial ways to express yourself last summer, then you'll be happy to have a legitimate excuse to relive one of the series' most legendary moments.

Remember when Stormzy, one of the show's most famous fans, randomly appeared in the villa via video link? Twitter blew up with excitement when the episode aired and now even BAFTA has acknowledged the moment's televisual importance, nominating it for the "Virgin TV's Must-See Moment" gong at this year's ceremony.
In case you were careless enough to miss it, rap "legends" Chris, Kem and Marcel were rehearsing one of their flows when the acclaimed grime artist popped up on screen with some tips for how to up their game. "Oh my days, oh my days, what the fuck?" exclaimed Kem in shock, before explaining away his excitement as if to maintain his street cred. "Obviously Stormzy's a big name but we're also a big name, so it's just like seeing a friend." Natch.
While Stormzy said he was "feeling [their material]," he advised them to stop holding their phones as they spat their rhymes. "Just don't use your phones and you're good to go."
Competition for the BAFTA is fierce, though, with moments from TV titans including Game of Thrones and Blue Planet, as well as Ariana Grande’s performance of "One Last Time" at the One Love concert following the Manchester terrorist attack, also in the running.
