Love Island: Meet the Guys – Kai Fagan

Love Island Meet the Guys - Kai Fagan

Love Island returned to ITV2 on Monday 16 January and it’s time to meet the contestants. Kai Fagan is 24 from Manchester, he is a Science & PE teacher.

Why Love Island and why now?
When you first meet someone you never normally get to spend that much time with them, so when you’re genuinely looking for a connection, the Villa is the perfect place to do it.

What do you think you’ll bring to the Villa?
I’m pretty lighthearted, I love a laugh. I’m really calm and chilled as well, pretty level headed, quite mature… but not too mature.

What’s your ‘elevator pitch’ for why someone should want to date you?
I’m caring, loving and impulsive so I’m always fun to be around. I’m always busy, I’m never sitting still. If you like to be busy too, then you can be busy with me. I can’t remember the last time I sat in on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday night.

Why would you say you’re single?
I’m single by choice. I’m looking for the right girl. I feel like I have quite high expectations. I don’t feel I should commit to someone unless I’m absolutely buzzing over them, because it’s not fair on them.

How would friends/family describe you?
Chilled, caring, very impulsive and a good guy. I always put my friends and family first and spend a lot of time with them.

Best / worst date story?
My friend arranged for him and I to go on a double date in a bar in Manchester.
He didn’t turn up to the bar so I was there on my own with these two girls and had to spend loads of money!

What gives you the ‘ick’?
There’s loads… having smelly breath is one. And I don’t like a girl that calls me ‘mate’ or ‘bro’ and stuff like that.

Do you fall in love quickly?
I probably do fall in love pretty quickly.

What’s your claim to fame?
My cousin Dean was in Coronation Street. I went to school with Marcus Rashford and we were in the same class. The school I went to was sponsored by Manchester United – I had so many experiences because of that.

Tell us something not many people know about you?
I’m a Jamaican citizen. Because of that I played rugby 7s for Jamaica. I play semi-professional rugby now
for Burnage RFC. I’ve technically got three different degrees and went to three different unis.

Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?
Michael B. Jordan, he’s pretty cool.

Music is a big part of Love Island – who do you have on repeat and why?
Loyle Carner’s Ottolenghi. I fully rate him, I think he’s really inspiring.

Who is your celebrity crush?
Margot Robbie!

Who are your dream dinner party guests?
Martin Luther King, Muhammad Ali, Sir Alex Ferguson and probably Sylvester Stallone… it’s a weird group of people that, isn’t it?

If money was no object, what would be your ideal first date?
I would want to get some of those gliding suits and fly over New York. She’s never going to be able to say she’s done that before!
