Love Island star Brad McClelland has been one of the most talked about stars on this year’s series – and he’s definitely got himself a fan in Holly Willoughby. 

The This Morning presenter spoke abut the islander and called the 26-year-old labourer ‘gorgeous’ while discussing the series on the show with former star Amber Davies.

Brad has earned the attention of both Faye Winters and Chloe Burrows so far, and is already one of the favourites from this year’s line-up.

Speaking about Brad, Holly’s co-host Phillip Schofield said ‘he’s got quite a thick accent though hasn’t he?’. 

Holly responded by saying: ‘Great accent. It did take me a couple of seconds, because he sort of just talks.’

The presenter added that he’s ‘gorgeous though’, with Amber agreeing he was ‘so beautiful’. 


Holly added: ‘We’ll see what happens with him. He seems like quite a nice boy as well, he does seem like a sweetheart.’

It’s not the first time Amber has spoken about Brad, after the former winner hinted at his history with a friend of hers.

It comes after Brad explained he’s prepared for his estranged father to recognise him on the show – but it won’t make much of a difference to his life.

After mentioning in his intro video that he lives with his nan, Brad told and other press that he doesn’t have a relationship with his dad, but is expecting him to see him on the show.

‘I think he will recognise us,’ he reflected. ‘[But] it’s a case of I’ve lived 26 years of my life without him doing alright, not needing him.

‘It’s not to say that I’m gonna live with her until she unfortunately passes away, but she’s a priority to me.’

Meanwhile, Love Island fans were left frustrated on Tuesday night, after being left in the dark over Chloe’s twist coupling announcement.

Love Island continues tomorrow at 9pm on ITV2.
