The ITV2 dating show returns next Monday (28 June), with a new batch of contestants heading to the Mallorcan villa in hope of coupling up and finding love.
The islanders are being revealed today (21 June), with Hugo Hammond, a secondary school PE teacher from Hampshire, among them. You can read more about the contestants as they’re announced here.
As well as working in education – something he says he “absolutely love” – Hammond has played cricket for England PD, the national physical disability team.
The 24-year-old has clubfoot, a condition in which one or both ankles are turned inwards from birth.
“I had lots of operations when I was a kid,” he explained.
“You can only really tell when I walk barefoot. I’ve got a really short achilles heel. I walk slightly on my tip toes.”
Also among the Love Island line-up is Aaron Francis, a luxury events host who’s worked at the weddings of both Princess Eugenie and Beatrice.
