Who is Casey Sonnekus from ITV's Ready to Mingle?

ITV’s brand new dating show, Ready to Mingle premieres on 6th September.

The show hosted by comedian, Katherine Ryan, will see 12 men competing for the affection of one single girl with the added opportunity of winning a cash prize.

With a big twist to the show, some of the men aren’t single and working with their girlfriends to secretly go home with the prize money.

One of the boys who will be competing for possibly love and money is Casey Sonnekus. Who exactly is the potential singleton joining the cast?

Who is Casey Sonnekus?

Originally from Johannesburg, South Africa, Casey Martin Sonnekus now lives in Cardiff, Wales with his brother, Tristan and mum, Audri.

Celebrating his birthday next month in October, making him a Libra, Casey is currently 22-years-old.

Having made a move to the UK with his family from South Africa, Casey officially became a British citizen on 9th February 2017.

Working for the railroad industry, Casey created his own company, Sonnekus Rail Ltd in 2018.

Casey’s relationships explored

Across his social media, there appears to be no sign of any ex-girlfriends of Casey’s – perhaps he is telling the truth as a single boy on the show.

In a Tweet from December 2020, Casey said, “Yet to have a Christmas with a girlfriend, another year of acting surprised opening the presents I bought myself, happy single life :)))”.

It seems that not only is Casey single but he has also never had a long term girlfriend, never having spent a Christmas with a partner.

Ready to Mingle: Casey’s social media

Appearing to be both a family man and a party boy, Casey’s Instagram shares lots of photos with friends and family.

Often posing with his mum and brother, Casey also shares photos in remembrance of his father, Wayne Sonnekus, who passed away in 2004 when Casey was just 5-years-old.

Also posting pictures with his friends, Casey is a party boy often going to festivals and party holidays including Ibiza and most recently, Croatia.

Aside from his busy lifestyle, Casey is also a huge football fan, Tweeting about scores and playing with his local teams as seen on his Instagram.
