Love Island shows no signs of slowing down, and in tonight’s shocking episode, which saw Grace and Frankie dumped from the island, ITV2 also decided to tease the arrival of two new boys. This late into the game, it’s going to be tough for any new bombshells to integrate, but fortunately Kieran Nicholls and Idris Virgo look to be up for the challenge. Unafraid of going after what they want, they could stir the pot enough for viewers to see yet more fireworks in the coming weeks. We can’t wait to see them walk in, but for now, here’s some information we’ve dug up on the pair…
Kieran Nicholls, 26, personal trainer from London
Saying that he doesn’t “try too hard” to get people to like him, Kieran describes himself as “a genuine, honest person and a nice guy.” He says he wants to “spend time with someone who is going to make me want to spend time with them,” but admits he’s “guilty of saying I don’t like to look too far ahead and I live each day as it comes but when I do get along with someone, I do start to think into the future, sometimes a bit too far ahead.”
Although Kaz is already coupled up with Josh in the villa, Kieran says he’s got his eye on one of the newest females to enter the villa: “She has her head screwed on and she knows where she wants to be and that’s a trait I look for.”
With his eye also locked on Megan, who he describes as “pretty hot”, Kieran thinks his “nice teeth” and “blue eyes” are some of his best attributes, as well as being a “confident” and “genuine guy”.
“I know people think I’m good looking and I have to reign it in a bit to make sure I don’t come across cocky,” he explains. “I try and just be honest and come across confident rather than cocky.”
Having gone through a break-up eight months ago, which saw a five-year relationship come to an end, Kieran seems ready to move on, and thinks he’ll “step on toes” in the villa if he has to. “It’s about me now,” he says. “I’m thinking about me. I’ve got this chance. I’m going to be a bit selfish in there and think about myself rather than others.”
We can’t wait to see how all of this turns out…
Idris Virgo, 25, boxer from Birmingham
“I’ve got a nice smile,” says Idris Virgo, a professional boxer who’s hoping to punch his way into the hearts of one of the Love Island ladies.
“I’m looking for a soulmate, a partner in crime, a long term partner,” he explains. “I’ve got my eye on Kaz, Georgia and Samira. I know some of the girls are coupled up, like Kaz with Josh, so it would be a challenge with her but I’ll find a way of stealing Kaz because she is my type. I don’t mind stepping on people’s toes.”
Adamant that he hasn’t got any bad habits or things others wouldn’t like about him, Idris maintains that he is “very against cheating and you’d never see me cheat.”
It’s “loyalty” that he looks for in a girl, and he says the perfect date “would be somewhere with nice scenery and a nice little chat. That would be the perfect date with good food – I love my food!”
Idris promises: “I am a lad’s lad but I’m going in there to find love. I might need to step on people’s toes but I would be honest about it and say to the boys’ face, not behind their back.”
With no worries, this could be one of the most entertaining additions to Love Island yet. Bring on the drama.
Love Island continues throughout the week on ITV2.
