Meanwhile, his cousin Spencer entered the villa last night with high hopes of finding a girlfriend.
The E-Commerce Business Owner, who admitted he "sold vibrators online", said he was trying the show as it was the "only time in his life" he had been single.

“This is the only time I’ve been single, so it’s now or never really.”

“I get head over heels pretty quick if I find someone I think, ‘Wow, you’re ticking my boxes,’” he explained. “I can definitely fall pretty quick”.
