Self-proclaimed "hero" Michael Griffiths is a 27-year-old firefighter and personal trainer from Liverpool.
He describes himself as a "straight-talking guy" who "tells people how it is".
Michael admits this quality is sometimes also a flaw, as it means he has no filter and says exactly what he's thinking.
According to the Love Island star, he gets a lot of compliments about his lips and his smile.

People will judge you....... let them 🤙🏾 . . They will project their insecurities onto you when they see you doing well. The success you have makes them envious & it is for that reason people will judge you but those voices will soon fade as you mind your own business & focus on winning 💭🏆 . . . #selfmade #ukbodybuilding #bodybuilding #mensphysique #teamppc #letsgetit #flexfriday
Of course he does! You can follow the Love Island star on the 'Gram @mac_griffiths_.
As it stands, he has 31.9k followers.
Michael's celeb crush is US singer Dani-Leigh, but when it comes to dating IRL, he looks for "somebody I can get along with on an intellectual level and have a conversation with and not be lost in translation. But also have a bit about them, not take themselves too seriously and have a bit of banter."
He adds: "And she’s got to have a nice bum."
Looks like Michael is in it to win it, claiming: "If I like somebody then I’ll go for it. There’s not really anything that could stop me.
"Everybody I meet will be a new person so they’re not going to be my best mate, so if a girl I’m speaking to is coupled up and we get on, I’m still going to talk to her.
"I’ll do it in a respectful way but I’m going to talk to her and let her know the situation and see where it goes from there. If she then likes me… sorry! It is how it is."
You can watch the latest season of Love Island on ITV2 from 9pm on Monday 3 June, 2019.
If you miss an episode, you can catch up on ITVHub after the show.
