Mitchel to enter Love Island
Get to know Love Island series 10 contestant Mitchel Taylor from his age and Instagram to what he does for work.
The contestant joined the likes of Ruchee Gurung, Ella Thomas and Andre Furtado as they awaited the matches picked for them by the public, and he already seems smitten with pantomime star Molly - who just so happened to be wearing matching swimwear on their first day in the villa!
Fans are keen to know more about Mitchel after he joined the Love Island line-up - so, get to know the Northern star from his age and job to his Instagram and more…
Mitchel is 26 years old and works as a gas engineer.
He’s hoping to settle down and find ‘the one’ during his time in the villa as he said before entering: “I’m just really picky. I’ve got to find the girl that I want to marry and have kids with.
“I’m nearly 27, I don’t want to play the field anymore, I want to find the one.”
The Northern contestant hails from Sheffield - not too far from Molly’s hometown Doncaster!
Already proving popular with Love Island viewers, Mitchel’s Instagram followers have soared to over 14,000 followers at the time of writing!
He often posts snaps with friends including gym pictures, holiday photos and snaps from nights out - you can have a scroll here - @mitcheltaylor_.
However, of course, his Instagram profile will remain dormant during his time in the villa much like the other islanders, in order to adhere to the new social media ban put in place earlier this year.
Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
