Harley Judge, 22, is set for the summer of his life as a contestant on the ITV2 reality dating show, living in a luxury villa on the Spanish island of Majorca.

The cast was revealed on Monday night and is made up of six single girls and five single boys, including a former member of noughties boyband Blazin' Squad and a Motorsport grid girl.

The Norwich groundsworker, who is a former Attleborough High School pupil, said: 'If you were to have a conversation with my ex-girlfriend she probably wouldn't say very nice things about me because I'm now going on a show we watched together last year.

'One of my biggest turn-offs with girls is probably fake tan - the smell of it on your bed sheets is just generally not a nice thing.'
