The Love Island 2019 line-up has now been confirmed - and we cannot wait!

Hit ITV2 show Love Island has returned for a fifth season of romance, drama, and love triangles – with a fresh cast of singletons looking for love. Unfortunately, some of the budding reality TV stars' journey didn't last as long as they'd hoped and Joe Garratt has now been booted out following a public vote which saved his partner Lucie Donlan and his pal Anton Danyluk.

Who is Joe Garratt and how old is he?

Joe Garratt is a 22-year-old from South East London who owns his own catering company.

He believed he was the perfect Islander because he has a good sense of humour and doesn't take himself too seriously.

Joe is also a self-confessed romantic, adding: "I’m chilled out and I’m quite laid-back. It could be a positive or a negative that I don’t take things too seriously all the time but in a relationship that’s quite hard…

"Some girls don’t like that! Sometimes I joke around too much. I’m also quite indecisive and I’ll question things. I’m always late as well, I can be super late!"

Is Joe on Instagram?

He sure is! Joe had 21.5k followers on the day he entered the villa, and upon his exit that figure had soared to 437k.

What's Joe's type?

In terms of celebs, Joe has a things for actress Lily Collins, Jorja Smith and Amber Heard.

But when it comes to dating IRL, he says he doesn't have a type. He places importance on personality and said he was looking for a girl he can have a good time with.

He said he was "looking for a connection, obviously initial attraction is key but the connection is the main go-to."

Why did Joe go on Love Island?

Joe said he was hoping to find a genuine connection on Love Island, but he also wanted to make some great guy pals while in the villa. Although he had a turbulent relationship with partner Lucie in the few weeks he was on the show, they left on seemingly good terms with Lucie debating whether or not to exit the villa herself and join Joe on the outside world.

When is the Love Island start date?

The fifth season of Love Island airs weekdays and Sundays at 9pm on ITV2.

If you miss an episode, you can catch up after the show on ITVHub.
