Meet Love Island’s Idris Virgo: The pro boxer ready to fight for Kaz’s love

He definitely has the coolest name ever

Last night was the end of the road for Love Island's Grace and Frankie, after a shock double dumping, but we quickly moved on with the arrival of their replacements and they're both as beautiful as each other.

New boys Idris and Kieran are set to cause drama as they both have their eyes on Kaz, but it's also good news for Samira who might *finally* find the man of her dreams with one of these two.

He says his smile is one of his best features, aw

Who does Idris want to couple up with?

Before he entered the villa, Idris said: "I’m looking for a soulmate, a partner in crime, a long term partner. 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."

Josh and Kaz have just become boyfriend and girlfriend but we're not sure how long it'll last now.

So who actually is Idris?

He's 25 and from Birmingham

He's actually amongst the older contestants in the show, as Georgia and Wes are only 20 and most of them are under 25, perhaps he'll show some maturity with his age.

On his relationship history, he says: "I have had a few girlfriends but have been single for two and a half years. I don’t think my exes would say anything bad about me because they all loved me but things just didn’t work out.

"I need to settle down now. I need someone to push me and motivate me so it is time to find someone."

Idris has been a Professional Boxer for nine years

He competed in a fight just days before coming to Majorca to appear on the show and regularly posts photos of him training.

He loves the show and posted this photo last year referencing Chris and Kem

Like Kem and Chris, brothers for life congratulations! @omarkhaleel.co.uk don't say a word. More to come from my team! #liveandmaintain #starving #idrisvirgo #smiles #smilesfordays #graduation #loveisland @loveisland

Bring back Kem and Chris, guys, it's what the people want.

He loves to post inspirational quote posts on Instagram

This is about as cliché as it gets, maybe he'll be giving Eyal a run for his money.

If only people had the same mind set as me!

Unfortunately Love Island is a competition, Idris

He's clearly considers himself a hard worker, and we're sure he'll work hard for attention from the girls

He auditioned for Big Brother when he was 18

This is not the first time that Idris has gone for reality TV, fortunately for us he was unsuccessful, but the audition tape is hilariously cringe and you won't be able to unsee it.

He introduces himself saying: "My name’s Idris Virgo, I’m 18, Birmingham, aka Mack".

We're not sure why his nickname is Mack?? Who is Mack and what does it mean? We want answers.

He then starts stripping and talks about the "quality" he will bring to the house, referring to his body. It's uncomfortable to say the least. He's obviously been searching for fame before entering the Love Island villa.
