The 21-year-old reality TV star joined the ITV2 show last year but despite not finding love, the hunk has now joined 'Geordie Shore' and he admitted he is "better suited" to getting "pissed" and having sex.

Sam told The Sun newspaper: "I got an opportunity to come on here and I thought why not.

"When I got the opportunity I thought 'yeah it's more my scene' - going out. It's paid off. They're two different scenes. With 'Love Island' it's only a couple of drinks a night, where 'Geordie' is more my scene. You go out, get pissed and go out and about - that's what I did anyway so that's what I think I'm more suited to it. That's what I like better."

When asked what he gets up to on the new series - which airs on January 9 on MTV - Sam said: "S**g and argue."

He also claimed that he doesn't get hangovers anymore because his "body is immune to it".

Sam said: "I think I drink that much I don't get hangovers no more. I think my body is immune to it.

"It can be mad - when you get in at daft o'clock in the morning and get up at daft o'clock you're getting sometimes five/six hours sleep but you just power on with it."

Back in October, Sam was reportedly lined up to join 'Celebs Go Dating', but it appears he won't be needing that as he confirmed he is currently in a relationship.

He said: "['Love Island'] has been one of the best things I've done and I've obviously come off and now I'm seeing a girl as well."

Sam was booted out of the villa in June with his on-screen girlfriend Georgia Harrison but their relationship didn't last long after they split after rumours he'd cheated on her with multiple girls.
