Who is Callum Macleod and how old is he?

Callum Macleod is a 28-year-old aircraft engineer from Wales.

He describes himself as a "genuine, normal guy" who's "up for a good laugh".

Callum believes his looks drastically improve when he gets a tan - so luckily for him, he's heading to Majorca to sun himself for two months.

He adds: "I’m fun, loyal and I’m quite spontaneous as well. I love to be clean, I clean my house all the time! I can be a bit edgy sometimes, I like to get things done. I think that’s my engineering side."

Is Callum on Instagram?

He sure is. You can follow the handsome hunk @callum_macleod.

Ahead of entering the Love Island villa, Callum has 18.8k followers.

What's Callum's type?

Traditionally, Callum has gone for "petite blondes", but he's also set on finding a girl with a personality.

One of his biggest criteria is that he finds a girl who accepts him for who he is and doesn't try to change him.

When it comes to celebs, Callum has a thing for Our Girl and former Corrie actress, Michelle Keegan.
