Jonny dated Camilla Thurlow and Tyla Carr while he was on the summer dating show

We were nigh-on obsessed with Love Island during the summer, and Now even took a trip over to the set in Mallorca to meet the contestants ahead of the show.

And we’re a little bit obsessed now with the fact that Jonny Mitchell has been confirmed as the first male face for the new series of Celebrity Big Brother, which starts in January.

Jonny was a star of Love Island last summer

After leaving Love Island, Jonny went on to date Made In Chelsea’s Stephanie Pratt, so he’s likely to be gunning for more romance when he heads into the CBB house.

An insider told The Sun: “Viewers really enjoyed watching him on Love Island this summer – and clearly there’s still more to see from Jonny.


“His split from Stephanie was a major factor in Channel 5 booking him for the new series.

“He is guaranteed to bring some drama to the house and romance one of the female contestants.”

Many of the boys from Love Island have spread their reality TV wings and headed to other shows.

Controversial Jonny was no stranger to drama when he was on Love Island. He had a bust-up with Camilla after questioning her on her feminist beliefs, leaving her in tears.

Jonny told Camilla: “I believe that women almost have more opportunities [than men].”

We’re not sure that we quite agree with you there, Jon boy…
