In Winter Love Island episode 5, two new boys entered the villa in the form of Finley Tapp and Connagh Howard.

Following the departure of Ollie Wiliams, who quit the show for his ex-girlfriend, it was only a matter of time before some fresh meat was added to the mix.

Fans have been quick to gawp at newbie Connagh, not least because he works for model agency W Management but also because of his towering height.

So, how tall is Love Is Connagh? And is he the tallest ever ITV contestant?

Love Island 2020: Connagh’s height explained!

According Connagh’s modelling profile, these are his body stats:

  • Connagh stands tall at 6 ft2
  • His chest is 42″
  • Waist is 34″
  • Inside leg is 33″

Oh, and he wears a size 11.5 on his feet. While 6ft 2 is pretty damn tall, it’s not like he’s an absolute giant.

In comparison, 2019 Love Island star is a colossal 6 ft5, although he is a professional football player. Connagh is more of a similar height to previous contestants such as Tommy Fury and Michael Griffiths, reaching the ‘tall’ category without being a giant monster.
