Why Love Island and why now?
Love Island is something I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve found lust before, but now it’s time for me to find love.

What do you think you’ll bring to the Villa?
Good vibes and high energy. I just want to make an impact in a positive way. I want to be the go-to guy. I’m going to bring my charm, personality, quick wit, good looks, tanned ankles and just smash it!

What’s your ‘elevator pitch’ for why someone should want to date you?
I’ve put myself first in relationships before and it didn’t end well, so I’m looking to focus and give 100% of my time and care to someone. I want to settle down, I’m getting old.

If there was one thing you’d want your new fellow Islanders to know about you, what would it be?
My dad jokes.. Quick wit and banter is my bag. I’m genuinely funny too, I laugh at my own jokes.

Why would you say you’re single?
Because of the wrong decisions that I’ve made in the past. I’ve not put girls first in relationships which I should’ve done.

How would friends/family describe you?
I’m the first person to bring the vibe up, I’m always dancing, I’m always the one who wants to go out. My go to dance move is what I call the Dad Dance, I’m gonna bring dad jokes and dad dancing to the villa.

Best / worst date story?
I went to a restaurant with a girl I was chatting with her on Hinge. She looked very good in her pictures. I turned up to the restaurant and was severely catfished, it wasn’t a 40 year old bloke from Stoke- on-Trent, but lots of photo editing, I couldn’t believe it. Because I’m polite, I sat down and had a drink with her and I was honest, I wasn’t gonna say my cat died or anything. To this day, I’ll never go for an account that’s not verified.

What gives you the ‘ick’?
When girls clap their hands when they speak or when people put too many exclamation marks in texts, three is enough.

Do you fall in love quickly?
Yes. I’ve actually been known to ask someone to be my Mrs after the second date. If I speak to someone and think you’re actually a bit of me, I fully go for it.

If you had to pick three of the most important things you look for in a partner what would they be?
Drive: I want them to be passionate about something, whether it's a job or enjoying trips to the zoo on Saturdays. I prefer a girl who is naturally good- looking, and someone who has even more banter than me - although I don't believe that's physically possible. I think those three qualities make for a perfect mix in a partner.

What’s your claim to fame?
I don’t have one. My Tik Tok has got 46 likes, so there’s no claim to fame.

This year marks series 10 of Love Island. Do you have a favourite show moment from any of the previous seasons?
The most iconic was when Ovie used to say ‘Message’, I loved that. Chris and Kem too, those guys had the ultimate bromance and banter.

If you had to pick three celebrities to be in the Villa with you as fellow Islanders who would they be and why?
I’m going to go with a little sweetheart called Megan Fox, if you’ve seen Transformers. The second would be Anne Hegerty from The Chase, I wouldn’t crack on with her but I’d have a laugh with her. I’d also like Nigella Lawson to cook something sexy.

If money was no object, what would be your ideal first date?
I think you can’t go wrong with top golf.
