Entomologists are claiming that Britain’s Daddy Long Legs population will be hatching late this year to avoid being subjected to episodes of love island as they flit around lamp shades or cling to living room curtains.
Professor Toby Dell of The National Institute of Entomology, told reporters: “There will be no Daddy Long Legs until at least late October this year.
The pupae will remain dormant until Love Island finishes its current run. We believe this is so that the adult insects can avoid having to watch brain dead moisturised half wits and their apprentice-prostitute girlfriends cavorting around an island with the cheeks of their arses hanging out”
This latest phenomenon mirrors the behaviour of the common house flies of 2014, who refused to make an appearance until Big Brother had finished for another year.
