Occupation: An athlete. Theo is a 400m sprinter with his sights set on the Tokyo Olympics. “I’ve been doing athletics for six years,” he says. “I’m in Team GB, the 4 x 400m Relay team. The main target in my eyes is the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.” 

Here he is smashing it in a mixed relay race in Melbourne back in February:

Who does Theo have his eye on in the Love Island villa? Although Amber might be a bit too short for him (he’s 6 foot 5!), Theo has his eyes on the pint-sized dancer along with Olivia and Tyla. 

Is Theo romantic? Err, we’ll let you be the judge of that when we reveal that the most romantic thing he’s ever done ever is buy his girlfriend a single rose on Valentine’s Day. “That was nice for her,” he explained. “She appreciated it and I even said I loved her as well.” WOW.

Has Theo dated anyone famous before? He hasn’t been romantically linked to anyone famous, but he has partied with Usain Bolt in Australia.
