Love Island’s Paul Knops may be about to come out of his shell and claim the villa spotlight.
The model and carpenter from Bournemouth looked shy and timid during his solo appearance on Tuesday night’s episode (18th July 2018).
However, with Laura Anderson suddenly ushered onto the market by now ex-boyfriend Jack Fowler, it’s time for Paul to make his mark.
After all, he’s already got Dani Dyer fighting his corner!
Seriously think Laura and Paul would be perfect, Laura needs to take Dani’s advice!! #LoveIsland

Bearded Paul was quiet and reserved during his big Love Island 2018 debut, although Georgia Steel didn’t really help.
G was thrust into a date with Paul moments after she had been forced into breaking up with Sam Bird – great start!
More than 10 years older than Georgia, the pair proved a complete mismatch on their date, with Georgia adamant that Paul’s job as a carpenter meant that he laid down carpets at Carpet Right.
Georgia is 20.
She thinks a carpenter lays carpets.
She is a product of the current British education system.

Despite Paul’s best attempts at being polite and courteous – which has nothing to do with hanging curtains, Georgia – the date just didn’t work.
Enter Laura Anderson
Date two with Bombshell Laura Crane proved equally as flat and it was only a 10-second segment where we saw Laura Anderson and newbie Paul talking where audience felt like romance could be on the cards.
Mainly because Laura, 29, is no longer the oldest person in the villa thanks to 31-year-old Paul.
Trust us, these two will definitely recouple, because the public is desperate to see Laura’s heart on the mend!
My heart’s fucking breaking for poor Laura. Please can her and Paul just get together and he can build her some lovely furniture #LoveIsland

Dani Dyer’s Approval
All you need to know about Paul Knops is that Dani has approved of him.
He’s essentially earned the stamp of approval from the top of the Love Island 2018 hierarchy.
Dani’s description of Paul as a person having known him for 10 minutes was absolutely beautiful.
Dani said to Laura, screeching in her usual shouty tone: Honestly Laur, hand on heart, I’ve got to say. I just feel like Paul’s a man… like he folds his washing, he’s just a nice man!”
Laura, listen to Dani … Girl knows what she's talking about! #Loveisland

Dani continued on camera: I know for a fact that Jack is the type of guy who will break Laura’s heart. He’s at a completely different stage of his life, he wants to go out partying, he wants to go out clubbing – Paul’s folding his washing! He’s got his own flat! He want’s to move forward with his life!”
Dani finished by saying how she can’t win Laura around because she is so defensive of Jack, and if you say a bad word against him you get looked at “as if she is going to attack you”.
Dani said Laura wants to attack you like an animal 😂😂😭😭#LoveIsland
