New Love Island contestant Mitchel Taylor Taken without permission

AS Love Island gets set to return for its iconic summer series, it seems a gas engineer could be heating things up as new contestant.

Heating expert Mitchel Taylor, 26, is rumoured to be amongst the new line up of sexy singletons ready to find love in the villa.

Love Island have ‘signed up’ hunky contestant Mitchel Taylor

A source said: “Mitchel is hot stuff, and he’s ready to find love in the villa.”

They continued to tell the Mirror: “When he’s not pumping water, he’s pumping iron, so the girls will swoon over his hunky physique and piercing blue eyes. And he’s a real family boy, too.”

Over on Instagram, instead of posting sexy selfies, Mitchel instead shares a look at boilers he’s installed in the homes of his clients.

It comes as it was revealed that a hunky French model is set to be this summer’s Davide Sanclimenti.

Mehdi Edno, 26, is sure to set pulses racing when he arrives in the villa on launch night.

Bosses are hoping he will have the same impact as Italian stallion Davide, who romped to victory with Ekin-Su last year.

An insider said: “Mehdi is the definition of tall, dark and handsome and will be a lot of the girls’ type on paper.

“His smouldering stare and French accent are going to make him one of the most in demand boys in the villa.”

Mehdi’s social media presence gives little away other than he likes taking selfies and doing adventurous activities.

Mehdi will join Tyrique Hyde, Molly Marsh and Jess Harding in the villa.

Molly was the first contestant to revealed for the new series.

The 24-year-old, a social media influencer as well as racking up the theatre roles, hit it off with telly bosses after she was invited to tour the winter Love Island villa in January.

A source revealed: “Molly was scouted after visiting the villa in South Africa earlier this year.

“She was on the tour as an invited guest when she caught the eyes of producers.”
