Will Dr Alex finally find the right girl…?
He’s become a fan favourite since entering the Love Island villa – but so far Dr Alex George’s quest to find love has been slowly flat lining.
First he didn’t get picked, then Samira made it MEGA awks, then Hayley refused to kiss him, then we thought he was going to cry and walk out – and that was only in the first three days!
But it seems Alex’s luck is about to change as new arrival Ellie Brown has made it clear that she has her eyes firmly locked on the villa’s resident doctor.
The 20-year-old Newcastle-born Business Development Manager, who will be seen entering the villa tonight alongside fellow newbie Zara McDermott, confessed that she is ‘already in love’ with Alex after watching him on the ITV2 show.
‘I’m in love with Alex! I absolutely love him,’ she said before she entered the villa.
Speaking of what she looks for in a man, Ellie added: ‘I don’t have a type. My two ex-boyfriends are so polar opposite, it’s unreal. One was muscly, tall. The other was not much taller than me and a bit older.
‘I’m not looking for anything specific. If they make me happy, they’re for me, and if they don’t, they’re not for me.’
Ellie also admitted she has history with islander Adam Collard, who is coupled up with Welsh lawyer Rosie Williams.
She said: ‘I do know Adam. And I’ve met his ex. Newcastle is very small so everyone knows everyone. We all speak.
‘If I saw him in a nightclub I would say ‘hello’ but we’ve not been in the same friendship circle. I knew Alex Beattie from last year, I knew Sophie Gradon from series two.’
But Ellie could have some competition when it comes to gaining Alex’s affections as Zara has revealed she is torn between pursuing Alex or Adam.
She said: ‘I want to meet someone I can vibe and connect with. Someone who can keep me on my toes.
‘I really like Adam, he’s very attractive. In terms of longevity though, Alex has a lot of potential. But I need to get know him more though – I don’t think we’ve seen how fun he can be. Maybe I can bring that out in him!
We can’t wait to see how it all unfolds…
