The airport security guard admitted that he hasn't had "the best luck with previous relationships", but hopes to find a lover in the villa.

Shaq's friends and family says that he "falls in love too quickly" and wears his heart on his sleeve.

Being an "emotional person", he says, "can be a blessing and a curse."

Shaq is into his films, especially Dear John, which makes him cry every time he watches it.

He spilled: "That’s my favourite film. Any time I’m with someone and they say, ‘Let’s watch a romantic film’, I’m like, ‘How about Dear John, how does that sound?'"

Love Island starts at 9pm Monday 16th January on ITV2 and ITVX.
