Love Island is just around the corner and fans of the show are looking forward to finding out who’ll be competing on this year’s programme.
The hit ITV2 dating show is set to kick off on June 3 this year, and there have been rumours fuelled by insiders that Tommy Fury, 19, will be part of the programme.
However, this rumour may have just been confirmed by boxing superstar, Tyson Fury, who has just broken his little brother’s news.
The boxer appeared on Ariel Helwani’s MMS Show on ESPN, Tyson revealed that Tommy will be featuring on the programme this summer.
He went on to joke that he doesn’t share his brother’s good looks.
“He’s going on a TV show called Love Island,” Fury said on the ESPN programme.
“He’s a good looking young kid, and I think he’s going to be a hit with the ladies on it.
“He clearly doesn’t look like me because I look like an ogre!
“He’s only just started his professional career, he’s 2-0 at the moment.
“He’s got a big future, but it’s going to take a lot of sacrifice and dedication to achieve goals.”
Tommy could be an appealing addition to the show for the ITV bosses due to his impressive online following.
Express.co.uk have reached out to ITV for comment.
A source told the Daily Star: “Tommy is one of the hottest young boxers on the circuit. He’s already got a huge following, and has been getting quite a lot of attention from the girls.
“He’s been out and about in Manchester over the last few months since splitting up with his ex and always cleans up.
“He’s very confident when it comes to the ladies. He’s got a lot of cheeky banter and isn’t shy in coming forward.”
Tommy’s also keen on making a name for himself and getting out from under his older brother’s shadow.
The young boxer told The Mirror: “Tyson has done marvellously well, and if I could just copy half of what he has achieved then I will be grateful.
“But I am here to make my own name. I don’t want to be known as someone’s brother.
“I want people to watch me because I am a fighter on my own merit and not because of who I am related to. My aim is to make fans turn out for me and not for my name.”
That said, nothing has been officially confirmed by the Love Island producers, and it’s been reported that a full official line-up will be announced soon.
Love Islands 2019 starts Monday, June 3 on ITV2.
