Like Alisha LeMay, Ellis Iyayi was meant to be on the Winter Love Island which never went ahead due to coronavirus.

Ellis is now rumoured to appear on Love Island in Majorca this June, alongside Holly Ramsay, Lucy Plunkett, Lucinda Strafford, Zack Chugg, Alexis Bailey, Harley Benn, Toluwa Adepeju, Aimee-Rose Francis, Jay Munro and James Price.

The 22-year-old hails from Loughborough and "can't wait to get in the villa," according to a source who spoke to The Sun about his Winter Love Island appearance last year.

"Ellis is exactly what the show is looking for and he ticks all the boxes - he will make great television," the source added at the time.

Here are a few things we know about Ellis Iyayi.

He's a fashion and fitness model

Ellis is a personal trainer and fashion model. He's worked with GymShark, ASOS, Nike and JD Sports, among others.

Perhaps he'll join Zack Chugg in leading some motivational workout sessions on the lawn at the villa?

He's studying at the University of Leeds

That's Ellis and Zack both studying in Leeds - it's clearly the city to pick up Islanders this year.

Ellis is studying for his degree in Sport and Exercise Science at Leeds Beckett University.

Ellis loves to party

Ellis's social media profiles show him at music festivals and partying with his mates. He also worked for an events company in Leeds, according to The Sun.

He has a YouTube channel

Ellis posts workouts, recipes and general life vlogs on his Youtube channel, which has just under 5,600 followers. Sound familiar? Do the words 'Joe Wicks' spring to mind?

He's a family guy

Much like Harley Benn, Ellis appears to be a family man as well as a super hot fitness instructor/model.

When profiling him for the Winter Love Island series, The Sun noted "he's a family man and is close to his mum, Sharon, and sister, Jadine." N'aww.

We look forward to (hopefully) meeting Harley and the other Islanders at the end of June.

Love Island comes to ITV2 on Monday 28th June at 9pm.
