LOVE Island star Chloe Burrows has landed a huge new TV job – on The Games.
The 25-year-old, who found fame on the reality show last summer when she fell for Toby Aromolaran, has been drafted in as a reserve and has kept it hush hush while secretly training alongside the other stars.
Despite not being guaranteed a main slot on the show, Chloe has to undertake the same gruelling regime as the other stars.
A source said: “Chloe has managed to keep it quiet but she has been busy training and meeting all the other stars.
“It’s a huge deal for her and a big TV gig – she’s excited to be a part of it.”
TV and radio presenter Will Njobvu is also a reserve for the show.

A spokesperson for ITV said: “Chloe Burrows and Will Njobvu are reserve competitors on the show and are training hard with the rest of the team in preparation for the live shows.
“They will take part in the competition in the event of any injury or illness and we are very excited to have them on board.”
The Games line-up was recently revealed, with a host of reality TV stars and actors set to battle it out.
Olivia Attwood and Christine McGuinness are strapping on their trainers, pulling on their swimsuits and getting on their bikes alongside 10 other celebrities.
The ITV show, hosted by Holly Willoughby and Freddie Flintoff, will also feature Mel B’s daughter Phoenix Brown, song writer Chelcee Grimes and Harry Potter actor Josh Herdman.
HOAR previously told how TV star Wes Nelson and Corrie’s Colson Smith will also be taking part.
Newsreader Lucrezia Millarini, Emmerdale actor Rebecca Sarker and actor Ryan Thomas are the final three names who will go head-to-head in a range of sporting challenges for the new series.
The Games will also see Alex Scott as trackside reporter and Chris Kamara as commentator.
Meanwhile, the six male and six female competitors will battle it out in the athletics arena, the swimming pool, gymnasium and velodrome.
Each will put their sporting prowess to the test in events from the 100-meter sprint to diving, racking up points on the medals table.
As well as live coverage of the events, each episode will feature the celebrities’ preparation as they’re taught the sports from scratch by some of the UK’s top coaches.
