Where is he from?

He is from Bournemouth

What does he do for a living?

Carpenter & a model

What makes you stand out from everyone else?

I’m a likeable guy, I’m approachable and I get on with everyone. I’m happy and outgoing and spontaneous.

What are you looking for in the villa?

Am I looking for love? At the age of 31, yes I am. It is a different experience, finding love in the Love Island villa. Physically the person I’m most attracted to in the villa is Kaz. She is beautiful. And Alexandra, I really like her aura, she seems to be a very relaxed girl and I think she can have a deep conversation, I feel she has a bit about her. I’d like to get to know her.

What are your best attributes?

I’m always interested in what people have to say. I do modelling, I know I’m not a bad looking guy but I don’t like to use that. I’m an equal to everyone. People are very surprised by the person I am after speaking to me, they can assume I can be stuck up but I’m very grounded. I get complimented on that.

Any bad habits or things people might find less likeable about you?

I’m so last minute, I faff around a lot. I’m so rubbish at making plans and that probably annoys people the most.

Tell us about your relationship history...

I have been in long term relationships in the past. I’ve had a few breaks in between. We are all looking for the perfect person, I would like to settle down and if I find it, I would. If I don’t, I’ll continue looking.

What are your thoughts on cheating?

I don’t agree with cheating at all. Have I cheated? No.

If a Love Islander could woo you, what is the best way to your heart?

I want to be physically attracted to the person I’m with but there has to be something special about her. I want her to be that special someone.

What do you find the biggest turn off in a girl?

Someone who is too into themselves.

What has been the most disastrous date you’ve ever been on?

I took a girl for drinks on a first date. She was staring at her phone the whole time so I took her phone off her and asked if she wanted a date with me or the phone. Then we went to a club and she was chatting to other guys she knew in the club. The whole thing was tragic.

How important will friendship be to you in the villa?

I am a boys’ boy but I’ve got two older sisters who allowed me to know how girls work. I get on with girls very well. I know some of the girls are coupled up seriously but I would still like them to get to know me and then make their own decisions about me.

Have you got any worries ahead of going into the villa?

I don’t want to come across as a bad guy!

Have you got any claims to fame?

I was the lead guy in the Britney Spears video “Make Me.”  Me and Britney were friends for a bit. I got to know her really well during the making of the video.
