Wednesday’s episode of Love Island sparked drama after welcoming not one, but two new bombshells to the Mallorcan villa.
While Tonia Buxton’s daughter Antigoni stepped in and picked out Dami Hope, Davide Sanclimenti and Jay Younger to hang out with, she wasn’t the only new face on the hit ITV2 show.
In fact, at the end of the episode, Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu was greeted with a text that read, “Girls, it’s time to get glamorous because tonight you’ll be welcoming a new boy into the Villa.”
With all eyes on the villa gates, debutant Charlie Radnedge has become the latest bombshell to make his Love Island debut.
Who is Charlie and what does he do for a living?
Charlie, 28, works in property development, which means OG candidate Andrew Le Page won’t be the only one in the villa who knows a thing or two about properties.
While Andrew mainly works in Dubai, Charlie hails from Chelsea in London and is friends with Made In Chelsea cast member Miles Nazaire.
Following news of Charlie moving into the villa, Miles took to Instagram to show his support for his close friend.
“The secret is out, Charlie is on Love Island. We’ve known it for weeks and it’s killing us not to say anything,” the reality star shared on her Instagram Story.
He added: “Please everyone go support our boy Charlie. He’s amazing, he’s our best friend and he’s going to kill him.
“He’s one of the funniest humans we know. We take care of his social networks which is proving very difficult because now my phone has a double whammy of notifications and it’s crazy.
While the Love Island bombshell may call Chelsea home, judging by Charlie’s Instagram, it’s clear that travel is a huge passion for him.
As of this writing, he has over 8,500 on the social media site and often shares snaps from his lavish vacations in Barbados, Ibiza and the French Alps.

And back home, you’ll likely find the islander strolling around the Henley Royal Regatta or the Saatchi Gallery.
Before appearing on the show, Charlie had been single for three years and explained that this was partly because he enjoyed his own company.
“I’ve been dating a lot in London and been single for three years so I haven’t been very successful in that department so why not try something new,” he said.
“I’m probably a bit more mature than some of the other people at the Villa. I understood some things. I think I’m ready to settle down, basically.
After Sunday’s surprise elimination, which saw Amber Beckford and Ikenna Ekwonna dumped from the villa, Charlie will have to tread a few toes to find the woman of his dreams.
Speaking about who he had his eye on, he said, “Ekin-Su, Paige and Tasha. But I keep an open mind until I meet them. I might get along with someone I didn’t like before. I’m very much on the personality side of things and if you vibe with someone.
Love Island continues every night at 9 p.m. on ITV2.
