Love Island season is upon us – the latest run of the ITV2 show is set to return next week.

The reality competition will introduce a new set of contestants who are hoping to find romance in the Spanish villa.

One such person is 22-year-old student Liam Llewellyn from Newport, south Wales.

Speaking about his decision to join the show, Liam, who is doing his masters in strength and conditioning, said:

"I think 22 is a really nice age to meet someone; you’ve got your years ahead of you so you have time to experience stuff and grow together."

He added: "I think Love Island is a great opportunity to meet someone – you’re in with a load of different types, so you can get to grips with what you really like about people."

Liam also shared his ideal type, stating: “They’d probably say quite generous, quite caring, happy, chatty, chirpy, bubbly.”
