Love Island’s Brad Already Has A Major Celeb Fan

With less than a week to go, the excitement around Love Island’s return is nothing if not red hot. Enter a new bunch of hot young singletons hoping to find love and bag a sweet £50,000 cash prize in sunny Spain. Ahead of the launch of the new series (set your diaries for June 28), ITV is gradually revealing this year’s islanders, giving die-hard fans a chance to guess who will be this year’s heartthrob or heartbreaker, including Brad McClelland. If you too can’t wait until the series starts, here’s everything we know about Love Island 2021 contestant Brad.

26-year-old Brad is a labourer from Northumberland. When asked what his colleagues would say about him, Brad said: “I try and make as much money as I can by doing as little as possible. They’d probably say – not lazy, as I’m energetic – I just try to get away with doing literally nothing.”

At the time of writing, Brad has just over 3.5k followers and follows 261 other accounts. Brad is clearly a fan of the gym selfie/thirst trap (mandatory, no?) he also has a penchant for the great outdoors, having recently posted scenic snaps from hikes in his native Northumberland.

Like all lockdown daters, Brad wants one thing: “to date face-to-face,” he told ITV. “I like meeting people. I’m easy going, laid back. Who wouldn’t want to be in a nice villa in a hot country for a while?” Hear, hear.

He definitely has a type. His celeb crushes include Sommer Ray, Zara McDermott, and Megan Fox. But he seems to be someone else’s type, too. Former Love Island winner Amber Gill commented on the official Love Island account where he was announced as a contestant saying he was “super cute.”

Love Island starts at 9 p.m. Monday 28 June on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
