The Love Island rumour mill is officially in full swing and the first person to seemingly fit the bill for a summer of love is Lotan Carter.

A bulking hunk of muscle with brief reality TV experience, it’s easy to see why Logan is already being touted as Love Island contestant numero uno.

Here’s everything we know about him including his age, job, reality TV experience and Instagram handle.

Lotan was on Big Brother

To be fair to Love Island, they tend to look for original cast members opposed to recycling those from other TV shows.

However, with the success of Dani Dyer last year, who was instantly known because of famous actor dad Danny Dyer, things may be about to change.

If the rumours are correct, Love Island 2019 will welcome its first Big Brother star into the series.

Lotan featured on the show when it still had the smallest smidge of popularity in 2017 before he was removed from the house for ‘inappropriate behaviour’ after a fight nearly broke out with a fellow housemate.

Where is Lotan from?

Essex, of course.

And this gives him an automatic leg up on anyone else applying for Love Island, with more Love Islander’s hailing from London, Essex, Manchester or Newcastle than anywhere else in the UK.

What’s his job?

Lotan is also known for his showstopping skills as a Dreamboy, the all-male stripper group.

He even performed at the 2018 Britain’s Got Talent final as part of the Magic Mike Live UK show.

This is bound to come in handy when it comes to that round with the fireman’s outfit and pole…

Lotan Carter: Age

Lotan is 30 years old. However, he’s been through quite a lot for his age.

At 23, he became a dad when girlfriend at the time, Darcey, gave birth to their son.

At 26, Lotan was engaged to Elizabeth Ellison before things came crashing down and he ended up on Big Brother humping everything that moved in 2017.

Lotan Carter: Famous family

Dancing obviously runs in the family as Lotan’s uncle is none other than Louie Spence!

Lotan even briefly appeared in Pineapple Dance Studios in 2010.

Is Lotan on Instagram?

Obviously, yes!

You can follow Lotan on Instagram under @lotanlaidbare, where he has close to 50,000 followers.

If you’re going to follow him then prepare for the type of abs that will instantly make you feel fat and most likely poke your eyes out through the screen.

Lotan Carter’s Penis

According to reports, Lotan’s penis is insured for £12 million due to the nature of his stripping work with Dreamboys!

You know, fans grabbing his tackle a little too aggressively and all that…

What are the odds of Lotan appearing on Love Island?

At this stage, the odds are pretty slim.

That said, The Sun were correct in leaking Dani Dyer’s arrival on Love Island last year.

This time around, sources told the newspaper:

Lotan’s really up for it and he’s been training so he looks his best on camera. Producers seemed really interested by he’s worried his reality show past might work against him.


Which Love Island 2018 couples are still together? Are Dani and Jack the last to go?
