Luke T’s time in the Love Island villa so far…

Luke T entered as a bombshell with Luke M and immediately set the girls’ pulses racing.

The cheeky chap said he was going to get to know everyone, but had his eye on a couple in particular.

And thankfully, he got to take one of them as the public decided he would take Siannise Fudge out for a night away from the villa.

However, Luke found interest from Rebecca Gormley and in a shock recoupling, she chose him over Connagh Howard.

But recently, Luke suggested there was some drama on the horizon as he admitted he was having some doubts about his relationship with Rebecca.

He then decided he had a soft spot for Siannise and decided to pursue her – later coupling up together.

What is Luke T looking for in a partner?

Luke T says his ideal woman is “intelligent, pretty, confident and bubbly,” in other words his celebrity crush: actress and businesswoman Jessica Alba.

“I really like girls who are intelligent. So, I’d be looking for someone who’s got a bit of something about them.”

What is Luke T’s ideal first date?

“I’d like to do an activity like mini golf, then probably go for drinks and if I really like them I’ll take them to a club after.”

What is Luke T’s worst habit?

“I can be quite stubborn, which annoys a lot of people. I’m overly competitive too.”

What is Luke T’s definition of the “bro code”?

“You’ve got to do what you’ve got to do. In the Villa, you’ve got to back yourself. I’m quite relaxed.”

Will Luke T stay loyal to his partner in the villa?

“I don’t have a wandering eye, I wouldn’t ever play anyone. I wouldn’t lie to someone and then go and do something else. I’d try and be open.”
