The 2019 Love Island line-up involved Anton Danyluk from the very start, but who is the hunky gym owner?
Love Island returned to our screens on Monday 3 June, 2019, with a fresh batch of singletons hoping to do bits, find love, and become the latest reality TV stars to win over the nation's hearts.
Anton Danyluk was just one of those hopeful islanders and after a few unsuccessful weeks he coupled up with Belle Hassan, whose dad is a famous actor.
But who is Anton Danyluk and what was his motivation for going on Love Island? Let's find out...
Anton Danyluk is a 24-year-old gym owner from Scotland.
He's hoping that his accent will give him an edge with the girls in the villa, and puts Laura Anderson and Camilla Thurlow's previous success down to them being Scottish.
He describes himself as funny, and states: "I’m very hard working and I’m really motivated and I love to encourage and motivate people. My worst traits? I can be moody and I’m definitely an overthinker. Sometimes I can be a bit selfish."
Anton believes his best feature to be his eyes, which pop thanks to his impressive tan.
The Love Island hunk revealed he once cut a first date short, after a girl took selfies in his Porsche - but here's hoping he gives the gals in Casa Amor more of a chance.
You can follow Anton on the 'Gram @antondanyluk.
The Love Island 2019 star had 24.2k followers when he entered the villa, but that rose to 930k as the series went on.
Like any hot-blooded man, Anton has a thing for Hollywood actress, Margot Robbie.
He said he was looking for someone "hard working and good looking."
Anton said he usually dates blondes and rates women who are hard-working. Given his occupation, he also likes to date those who enjoy going to the gym.

Given that Anton has "a wandering eye", it didn't seem likely he was looking for anything serious before the series began.
Having said that, he insisted: "For me going to into Love Island, it’s going to be the biggest test of my life. I know that if I am loyal to someone in that space of time when hot girls are being thrown in all the time then I know I can be loyal to them."
Love Island airs weekdays and Sundays at 9pm on ITV2.
