An insider has told The Sun: "Ellis is over the moon about it – he's had to be sworn to secrecy about it but he's been in to meet producers a few times and they love him – he can't wait to get in the villa.

"Ellis is exactly what the show is looking for and he ticks all the boxes – he will make great television."

Ellis is originally from Loughborough and is a personal trainer and fashion model based in Leeds. He studies Sport and Exercise Science at Leeds Beckett University.

If his Instagram is anything to go by, Ellis Iyayi loves a festival, nights out and has done modelling in the past. He sounds like the perfect Love Island contestant already.
