He’s also not a fan of dating apps and is excited to get to know women face-to-face on Love Island.

Brad told ITV: “I want to date face-to-face, I like meeting people.

He says he prefers dark-haired girls, but his ex was blonde.

Brad told ITV: “I’d say I like dark hair, dark skin, dark eyes. But then my ex-girlfriend who I was with for over 8 years was fair skinned, blue eyes, blonde hair.”

As for personality wise, he says it is essential she is as laidback as he is.

He explained: “Someone who doesn’t take themselves too seriously. I could not be with someone that’s constantly on your case.”
