Before going on the show, Dean recently broke up from a two-year relationship that “started to fizzle out”. “I have no idea what she’ll say when she sees me on Love Island,” he says.
Don’t expect Dean to make too many friends in the villa though: “I will get along with everyone but I’m set in my ways. If I want something, I will get it,” he says. “I’m in there to find love so I wouldn’t be bothered about tearing any ties if I wanted to couple up with someone who was with someone else.”
