LOVE Island favourite Ovie Soko has been revealed as the new Diet Coke hunk in the star’s biggest ever deal.
However, the 28-year-old basketball ace – who won the hearts of viewers last summer – doesn’t appear topless after the ads were given a ‘woke’ makeover.
Instead he is shown slurping back a can of the fizzy pop while surrounded by models in a nail salon.
He’s seen in jeans and a white T-shirt with one hand in his pocket in the advert, which has the tagline: “You do you.”
A source explained: “This is Ovie’s biggest deal to date and being in a Diet Coke ad is a dream come true for him.”
Last year, Holly Willoughby stood down from her 450,000 job promoting the brand to spend more time with her family.
Ovie has also been promoting Just Eat with another former Islander, Amber Gill
As well as Diet Coke, Ovie has also bagged tie-ups with mobile phone brand Voxi and takeaway giant Just Eat, which he promotes with Amber Gill.
And today Love Island’s reigning champ sent fans wild when she dropped a big hint that she’d like to turn their friendship into something more.
Miss Pap tweeted: “This year’s boys are cute, but BRING BACK OVIE.”
Amber then responded, writing: “Excuse me?”
He is also the new ‘love doctor’ for mobile network Voxi
He first found fame in the Great Britain basketball team
This led many fans to believe she was dropping a hint they have finally got together, with one tweeting: “Amber wants him for herself. we see u.”
Ovie will also be appearing on The Great British Bake Off in a special edition for Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer campaign.
He will star alongside Carol Vorderman, Louis Theroux, This Morning’s Alison Hammond and singer James Blunt.
