Shane Warne denies any interest in Love Island
Cricketer and single dad sets the record straight with "silly reporters."
Shane Warne has quashed rumours he has his sights set on Love Island -either as host or participant.
He took to Twitter to set the record straight:
FYI silly reporters I do not want to be on love island or host the show. I’m just a huge fan & cant wait to see the action on @Channel9 & the fun in 2018 ! Also, I am not dating anyone and am very single !!!!

It follows reports in which Michael Clarke was asked by Fitzy on radio:
“Do you think there’s a chance Shane Warne could be the next Bachelor?” Fitzy asked.
“No chance … but there’s another show he’s been bragging on about. Love Island,” Clarke replied.
“He wants to host it … I said: ‘Host it? You wanna go on it!’”
TEN CEO Paul Anderson was recently asked about Warne being on The Bachelor or Bachelorette but he drew upon a Julia Morris gag that Warne would be more likely to do “nicorette.”
Together with speculation about Sophie Monk as host, it’s all good publicity for Nine’s Love Island.
