Step forward Love Island winner Max Morley, who 25-year-old Geordie Shore star Charlotte was spotted sharing a VERY steamy snog with last night!

The reality TV duo were snapped getting up close and personal in the back of a taxi after a Jeans For Genes charity bash in London and even walked hand-in-hand along the pavement.

Max – who is also newly single after splitting from fellow Love Island winner Jessica Hayes a few weeks ago – certainly looked smitten with Charl and they make a pretty gorgeous couple.

But just who is 22-year-old Yorkshireman Mr Morley? Here’s 7 things you NEED to know about him…

1. He’s a professional cricketer

Max is a dab hand on the cricket pitch and has played for Durham County Cricket Club. So even though he appears to be focused on his showbiz career right now, it’s good to know the Huddersfield-born star has got something to fall back on.

2. But David Beckham is his hero

Cricket might be his game but Max adores former footballer Becks (although, let’s face it, who doesn’t?). The Love Island champ has often posted snaps of David on Instagram with captions such as: ‘My hero #legend #greatestever’

3. He’s a great skier

Quite the sportster is our Max! Not content with being a cricketer/footballer, he’s also impressive on a pair of skis. Earlier this year he shared some envy-inducing snaps from a trip to the slopes and showed off his skills in a video clip of him skiing.

4. He once auditioned for Big Brother

Before finding fame on Love Island, Max attempted to get onto another reality show. Last year he confessed that he’d tried out for Big Brother in 2012, having posted a photo of his application form on Insta for all to see.

5. He loves a night out

Something tells us this will please Charlotte! Max loves to party and regularly shares his exploits from nights out and trips with his social media fans.

6. He rocks a novelty jumper

Awww, who doesn’t love a man in a geeky sweater? We checked out Max’s Insta snaps from Christmas time and were thrilled to see him looking super cute in a proper festive jumper.

7. He’s got a crush on Holly Willoughby

Max might have hooked up with brunette Jess on Love Island but admits that he actually has a thing for blondes. In fact he once made this abundantly clear by posting a snap of fair-haired presenter Holly Willoughby on social media with the caption: ‘Your a beauty’ Funnily enough Charlotte is currently rocking long blonde locks – was this part of the attraction?

We look forward to seeing how this potential new reality romance develops!
