Tyrique revealed they were school friends in Essex in his pre-villa interview.

He said: “Toby Aromolaran is one of my best friends, we grew up together and were in the same class at school.”

Tyrique, 23, is a footballer like Toby and plays for Dartford.

But the midfielder is swapping his boots for flip flops as one of Love Island‘s summer series’ original boys.

Speaking about going on Love Island, he told ITV: “I’ll bring vibes, confidence, good energy and honesty.

“I don’t sit on the fence, if I have an opinion I will speak up. I’m also not afraid to go after what I want.”

HOAR revealed the new series of Love Island will start on Monday June 5 with a whole new group of sexy singletons ready to compete for the £50k prize.

Several cast members including beautican Ruchee Gurung, 24, French model Mehdi Edno, 26, and beauty clinic owner Jess Harding have already been revealed by HOAR.

This time around a shock twist will see viewers being given the power to match the couples in the first episode.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain today, Maya Jama said: “A very big surprise is that the public has all the power.

“For the first episode, you guys are going to decide who couples up. You vote and then we listen.

“It’s a big decision to make, as soon as you see them.”

ITV are unveiling the stars throughout this Bank Holiday Monday – with the line-up including a hunky plumber, semi-pro footballer and a beautician.

Voting then opens on Thursday morning at 8am and you can vote for free via the Love Island App.

You’ve only got until Friday evening at 9pm to have your say.
