New Love Islander Mike Thalassitis to enter villa

Semi-professional footballer Mike Thalassitis will enter the "Love Island" villa on Thursday evening (15.06.17).

The 24-year-old hunk from London hasn't entered the ITV2 dating programme's famous abode yet, but he has already set his sights on three of the girls, Jessica, Olivia and Amber, although he says if they have "boring" personalities he won't be interested.

Asked who he has his eye on, he said: "Looks wise, I'd say Jessica, Olivia and Amber. But personality is really important - I couldn't be with Jessica if we were having boring conversation. I want to have a laugh and enjoy the girl's company."

However, his "honest" nature and coming across as a player may not go down too well with the ladies.

Asked what his dating reputation is like, he spilled: "My mates know I'm quite selective. Girls would probably think I'm a player but I'm not. I'm very honest and say it exactly like it is. Sometimes that doesn't work in my favour."

And while he thinks he has the looks, the girls may be put off by the fact he doesn't like to spoil his girlfriends.

On not making an effort to woo the ladies with expensive gifts and dates, he said: "I'm not romantic very often because I would never be that guy to spend money on a girl, show her romance and start falling for her, and then you find out a month later she's been with lots of other guys. I'm very particular. I'm very all or nothing. I won't splash cash on girls I don't really know."

And on how he is different to the other lads in the house, he explained: "I just think I look different to all of them. Tall, dark and handsome - which is what most of the girls have said they are looking for. "

"Love Island" continues this evening (15.06.17) from 9pm on ITV2.
