In an appearance on Lorraine, the labourer spoke about the personal and shocking story.

Brad revealed that he had attempted to find his 15-year-old half-sister in the past – but by a stroke of luck it was the reality TV show that reunited the siblings!

On Tuesday, the labourer sat down with Ranvir Singh and got candid on the topic: "I'm one of six and my brothers and sisters are massive for me. I try to spend as much time as I can with them.

"To have another sibling is a massive thing."

The family-orientated ex-Islander went on to gush over his newfound relationship.

"I always knew I had a younger sister, I tried to get in contact with her for years, searched for her on social media, all I had was her name."

He seemed overjoyed as he told Ranvir that he'd even video-called his little sis since leaving the villa.

Brad said: "She reached out to me and I FaceTimed her a couple of days ago. The first time I’ve seen her face and spoken to her and heard her voice was literally just a couple of days ago."

He sweetly said: "If anything has come from my Love Island experience…. I found love in a different way. She's 15 and that's the first time I've ever seen her. It means the world to me."

That's a twist we didn't see coming from Love Island this year!
