Toby Aromolaran is among the original 11 cast members in this year's Love Island.

Late arrivals Liam Reardon and Chuggs Wallis are sure to stir things up for him when they enter the Villa in episode four.

The 22-year-old from Essex is desperate to find love, and he hopes coming on the show will make it happen for him.

Here are a few things we know about Toby.

He's a semi-pro footballer

Toby has played football since the age of 6 and has been playing for a team called Hashtag United for about a year.

The team was formed by YouTube sensation and gaming personality Spencer Owen in 2016.

As the name might suggest, the team does a lot with social media. "Everything is on YouTube, Instagram and Twitter. Playing with them has really made me fall in love with the game again," said Toby.

He's never been in a relationship

So Brad has never been on a date and Toby has never been in a relationship.

Let's hope the villa will work some magic on them.

Toby said: "If Love Island can't find me a relationship, then no one can."

What's Toby like as a person?

When asked how his friends would describe him, Toby replied: "Optimistic. I always see the bright side in the worst situations."

"I'm a fun guy when I go on a night out. Responsible guy as well," he added. He sounds like a good guy to have around.

Toby is the second Islander from Essex

Fashion blogger Kaz is also from Essex - perhaps the two will strike up a bit of flanter about the nights out there? You never know.

He's a great wingman

According to Spencer Owen, when Toby signed up to play for Hashtag United, he told him he was a great wingman.

Tweeting about Toby's Love Island news, the presenter joked: "When you signed for @hashtagutd and told me you were a great "wing-man", this isn't what I had in mind @Toby_Aro!"
