Brad McClelland has joined the Love Island 2021 line-up! Here’s everything you need to know about the northern hunk!
Brad McClelland has joined the roster of islanders and has revealed that he's excited to get back to "face-to-face" dating after a year inside!
Here's everything you need to know about the northerner making his way to your screens this summer...
Brad is a 26-years-old from Northumberland and works as a labourer – he describes himself as a "gym-goer and coffee lover".
When quizzed on how his workmates would describe him the reality-star-to-be said: "They’d probably say – not lazy, as I’m energetic – I just try to get away with doing literally nothing.
"I try and make as much money as I can by doing as little as possible."
The northerner stated that he enjoys meeting new people and prefers dating "face-to-face".
Brad continued: "I'm easy going, laid back. Who wouldn’t want to be in a nice villa in a hot country for a while?"
He went on to describe his perfect girl and revealed that some of his celebrity crushes were Sommer Ray and Megan Fox.
The labourer even declared that a particular ex-islander tickled his fancy: "Zara McDermott, she’s a good-looking lass."
You can follow Brad on Instagram @brad_mcclell, at the time of writing, his account has over 7,000 followers – but we have a sneaking suspicion that it won't stay like that for long!
Love Island starts at 9pm Monday 28th June on ITV2.
