Kieran was in the Love Island villa for four days. Although he shared his intention to get to know Kaz Crossley and chatted to Alexandra Cane, he failed to find a connection.

He’s had better luck outside of the villa and is happily coupled up with Ellena Hoad, who founded a clothing brand and fitness app.

The former reality star has himself set up his own online coaching business, and posts fitness-based videos on YouTube, and Instagram which often features Ellena.
