The 24-year-old previously starred in a TOWIE-style online show called GLOW - where he was seen breaking hearts and rowing with his girlfriend.

Anton Danyluk was one of the original 12 in the Love Island lineup, and the Scotsman has made it to the final.

Here's all you need to know about the 24-year-old...

Who is Anton Danyluk, how old is he, and where is he from?

Anton is a gym owner from Airdrie, a small town in Scotland, 12 miles east of Glasgow.

He is 24 and proudly admitted to being a ladies' man on his entry VT, however, he hasn't been as smooth on the show.

In the pre-show interview, he said: "My friends would say I'm a bit of a smooth operator because of the way I pick up girls in the club.

"I always get the nicest looking girl out of all my friends.

“My best feature is my eyes. I’m quite dark but I’ve got light eyes so they stand out.

"I would rate myself an eight on looks alone but when you start putting everything together you can bump it up a little bit.”

Who is Anton Danyluk coupled up with?

Anton is happily coupled up with Bromley gal, Belle Hassan.

The pair met during the Casa Amor twist of the show and were instantly attracted to each other.

Their relationship has been pretty smooth sailing aside from one bump when Anton gave his number to a shop keeper during a trip out of the villa.

However, many have called it staged by producers and Anton claimed it was just a joke.

They had a bit of a spat as Belle said he had mugged her off, but the couple made up not long after.

Why do fans think Anton Danyluk is racist?

The Sun reported that there was a photo of the 24-year-old wearing blackface at a Halloween party.

Fans called for him to be dropped from the show.

However his mum denied that her son is a racist in a statement shared via an ITV spokesperson.

What is Anton Danyluk's 'medical condition'?

The cheeky Scot claims being in a relationship makes him SICK.

He says he develops a "severe medical condition" during his relationships called "Wandering Eye".

He added: "I've cheated on all my girlfriends. That's the reason I want to see get into the villa – to see if I can stay loyal to the one person."

"My last relationship, I actually got caught cheating for the first time in my life and it changed everything for me. I saw how much it hurt her and what it did to her."

What reality show was Anton Danyluk on before Love Island?

Anton starred on GLOW, a Glaswegian online reality show.

In it he was seen having vicious rows with his then-girlfriend, who left the show mid-filming as she was so upset about the demise of their fiery relationship.
