You can’t have a good Love Island series without a few Irish faces.

Catherine has been flying the Irish flag for us this time around and we’re loving her for it.

Now it looks like she’ll be joined by another handsome hunk.

While he’s not exactly Irish, he has been living on our shores as a League of Ireland goalkeeper.

Scott Van Der Sluis was born in Wales and joined Dublin team Shelbourne FC as a reserve goalkeeper last June.

However, it looks like he will be hanging around for a while as he is signed for another year.

On August 26th he made his debut for the football team in a 4-0 FAI Cup win against Bonagee United.

The Welshman previously had a youth career at Manchester United, Liverpool and Swansea City. He has also played on his home turf for teams like Swansea City and Bangor City, while he has also represented Wales at underage level.

That’s not his only football connection as he is also the younger brother of Welsh sportsman, Jamie Reed.

The sportsman will surely make an impression when he heads into the villa this week, as his “elevator pitch” sees him describe himself as “tall, dark, handsome” before adding “I’m a goalkeeper, so I’m good with my hands”!

We’ll have to wait and see how he gets on in the Love Island villa.

Love Island continues at 9pm on Virgin Media Two
