Who is Alexi Eraclides, what does he do and how does he know Jess Gale?
It’s set to be a very dramatic week on Love Island, as Casa Amor returns with a whole host of hot new singletons.
And it wouldn’t be the same without a token Essex hunk, so this time we welcome Alexi Eraclides to the villa.
But while he sets his sights on the ladies of the villa, it turns out Alexi already has a connection with Jess Gale.
So, let’s get to know Alexi a little better…
Alexi is a 23-year-old from Essex who makes a living as a butler in the buff.
He describes himself as a “confident, outgoing guy,” and says he’s “funny, cheeky and confident.”
Unfortunately for the rest of the contestants, his worst habit is snoring, but describes his best feature as “my curly hair or my pecs”.
Alexi met Jess on a night out where the pair exchanged Instagrams.
He says: “We sent a few messages but nothing came of it. It’ll be interesting to see how we get on when we meet again…”
Alexi has had his eye on Shaughna Phillips from the start and also said he fancies Demi Jones.
And the boys better watch out, as he’s admitted he’ll do almost anything to get what he wants.
"I’m ruthless!" he said, adding: “I’m not worried about loyalty, I don’t mind stepping on anyone’s toes. If I want something I’m going to go for it, especially if there’s a girl I’ve got my eyes on."
"I want someone funny, fit and flirty. Attraction is important to me but also I like someone who is not stuck up or too timid because I’m quite outgoing. I want someone to bounce off."
