A man from Preston has entered ITV2’s Love Island as one of four new bombshells.
Non-League footballer Jamie Allen arrived at the villa last night (Wednesday July 20) and is already sparking drama with his club FC Halifax Town apparently unimpressed with his appearance.
A club spokesperson said on Twitter: “Allen has decided to join the cast of Love Island 2022, making it clear that the opportunity is very important to him. The matter will be reviewed upon his return.

27-year-old striker Jamie has appeared on the international stage for Monstserrat and has previously played for sides such as Fleetwood Town, AFC Fylde and Southport.
During his first scenes on Love Island, Jamie promised to bring “good vibes and good energy”.
Despite scoring just eight goals in 76 appearances for Halifax, he warned the other boys should be worried because “I shoot, I usually score”.
And when Jamie introduced himself to his mates as a footballer, Luca – who is in a relationship with ex-pro Michael Owen’s daughter Gemma – looked visibly upset.
To find out if Jamie will cause as much controversy inside the villa as he does outside, tune into ITV2 at 9pm tonight.
