According to The Sun, Billy Brown will soon become a new addition to the show for the girls to fight over.
Billy, who is described as a ladies’ man and a fitness fanatic, is already familiar with islander Gemma Owen as the pair follow each other on Instagram – although it’s not clear how well they know each other.
A source said: ‘Billy is a ladies man and he’s definitely going to bring some fireworks into the villa.
