Kieran Nicholls is the latest hunk to join the Love Island 2018 cast.
Following the dismissal of Grace Wardle and Frankie Foster on Monday night (9th July 2018), two vacancies became available inside the Love Island villa.
Kieran and professional boxer Idris Virgo are the two lucky guys to join the party in Majorca, with only three or four weeks left before the grand final.

1. Kieran Will Be Our Second Favourite Chef in the Villa
Kieran Nicholls used to be a professional chef, although that won’t instantly make him our favourite cook in the villa.
No, the chef’s hat can remain firmly wedged onto Jack Fincham’s head thanks to his hilarious Gordon Ramsay impressions.
Should another cooking task arise, however, perhaps Kieran will prove the more talented.
Gordon Ramsey better watch out if his career goes down hill because there’s a new chef in town CHEF JACK 😂😆#loveisland

2. He’s a Personal Trainer
The 26-year-old from London switched careers very recently, moving from the kitchen to the gym eight months ago.
Kieran is yet another personal trainer to join the villa, although following the departure of Adam Collard it’s now only Sam Bird and Jack Fowler who are currently holding the PT fortress.
Still, that means 1/3rd of the male contestants are personal trainers – is there any other profession for twenty-somethings in the U.K?
Why is everyone in love island a personal trainer 😂😂😂

3. Kieran Came Out of a Very Serious Relationship
Kieran confessed to Love Island producers that his last relationship lasted for five years – much longer than any of the other Love Island contestants!
The whole sudden switch of career was all in the name of love, too.
Kieran said: I moved from Suffolk to London to be with her, to try and bring us closer together. I became a personal trainer, I moved in with her but I forgot about her in the sense of I was concentrating more on myself.”
4. He Has Motivational Tattoos
Kieran’s full-length sleeve is complete with a motivational quote on his forearm.
The tattoo reads “never a failure, always a lesson”.
We wonder what lesson Love Island 2018 is going to teach him?
5. Kieran is in the Queue for Kazimir Crossley
Just as the dust settled for Kazimir Crossley and Josh Denzel, with the pair becoming ‘official boyfriend and girlfriend’, Love Island producers decided to throw not one but two spanners in the work.
Kieran has been quoted to fancying Kaz, although so has fellow Monday night Bombshell Idris Virgo.
Guys, please form an orderly queue!
Kieran said: I’ve got my eye on Kaz in terms of looks and personality. She has her head screwed on and she knows where she wants to be and that’s a trait I look for.”
