Love Island Euro hunk Mehdi Edno set to be the new Davide as he gets ready to enter the villa


LOVE Island has signed a hunky French model who 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.

He’s being touted as this season’s Davide Sanclimenti

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.

But in a matter of days he will see his follower number skyrocket as viewers get to know him on screen.

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

Dartford midfielder Tyrique, 23, is swapping his boots for flip flops next month as one of summer series’ original boys.

A source said: “Tyrique is the whole package. He’s fit, handsome and has charisma.

“He’s had a good season and love his football, but he couldn’t say no to spending the summer in Majorca in a luxury house filled with beautiful women.”

While a decent player in his own right, Tyrique is yet to experience the heights his dad reached in the early noughties.

Micah, 48, played 253 times for Watford before making 102 appearances for Burnley in the Championship and 64 for Peterborough United.

He also earned 17 international caps for Jamaica.

Jess, who runs Candy Aesthetics, is a blonde stunner that is guaranteed to court serious attention from the boys.

The West London girl will be hot property when she enters the villa on June 5 and, thanks to her day job, is likely to be preened to perfection.

Jess’s Instagram page is full of pictures of her in racy dresses and bikinis.

The blonde beauty loves sunny holidays, but also has an adventurous side. In one picture she can be seen on a quad bike in the Egyptian desert and even manages to make that look glamorous.

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.

“Molly made it clear she would love to be a part of Love Island and she was told to audition.

“She is a star on the rise and comes from a showbiz family — her mum Janet even had small roles on Coronation Street and Still Open All Hours.”
