However, Liam’s luck appears to have changed after he was picked by the public to go on a date with not one, but two of the bombshells heading into the villa; Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Afia Tonkmor.
Get to know more about Liam, including his age, Instagram and very famous dad…
Liam is 22 years old and is a Master's student from Newport, South Wales.
Ahead of entering the villa, the singleton revealed he has just wrapped his studies on Strength & Conditioning.
You can follow Liam on Instagram @liamllew_ where he already has a staggering 66.6K followers, which we’re sure is bound to soar during his time in the villa!
Michael Owen's daughter Gemma Owen is not the only child of a famous sports star in the Love Island 2022 villa, as Liam’s dad is a former Welsh rugby star.
Liam’s dad David Llewellyn is a former Wales international rugby union player who played his club rugby for Ebbw Vale, Newport and Neath.
David was also part of the Wales squad for the 1999 World Cup where he scored a try, and won four caps for the national team, as well as a further 12 times on the bench for his country.
