Charlie Radnedge is the latest bombshell to stir things up on Love Island as he entered the villa on Wednesday’s episode.
The 28-year-old real estate developer is no wallflower, describing himself as ‘quite forward and straight talking’.
Before going into the villa, Charlie already boasted that he thinks he is more ‘mature’ than some of the other islanders and he’s already got his eye on Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, Paige Thorne and Tasha Ghouri.
Newcomer: Charlie Radnedge is the latest bombshell to stir things up on Love Island as he entered the villa on Wednesday’s episode
Asked who he has his eye on, Charlie said: ‘Ekin-Su, Paige and Tasha. But I’m keeping an open mind until I meet them. I might get on with someone I didn’t fancy before.
‘I’m very much on the personality side of things and whether you vibe with someone. Ekin-Su is more towards my classic type.
‘Paige seems like a very, very nice girl. Tasha seems like good fun as well. I find her quite intriguing – I want to find out more about her.’
Charlie reckons he will stand out from the other men in the villa, adding: ‘I am quite a different personality to the guys in there.

‘I’d say I’m quite forward and straight talking. I’m also quite a relaxed person as well. I think I’ll bring good vibes to the Villa.’
He added: ‘I am probably slightly more mature than some other people in the Villa. I’ve got some things figured out. I think I’m ready to settle down, basically.’
Charlie has been single for the last three years but now feels ready to find love after years on the London dating scene.
Asked why he is single, he said: ‘Part of it is that I’m very happy on my own. I enjoy doing stuff on my own and having my own space.
Charlie said: ‘I’m very much on the personality side of things and whether you vibe with someone. Ekin-Su is more towards my classic type’
‘I don’t require someone else to make me feel happy. If I do get into a relationship I want it to be something that adds to both of our lives, rather than it being something my happiness is dependent on.
‘I’m probably at the age where the next serious relationship, that’ll be it I reckon, so I want to be sure.’
Charlie added that he is ‘very competitve’ and won’t have a problem going after what he wants.
He said: ‘I would have an issue stepping on people’s toes if they’re good friends of mine. But I haven’t met anyone yet. Everyone’s there for the same reason.
He added: ‘I am probably slightly more mature than some other people in the Villa. I’ve got some things figured out. I think I’m ready to settle down, basically’
‘Even people who have good intentions and are good people would need to step on people’s toes to find what they’re looking for.’
Asked if he falls in love quickly, Charlie said: ‘I’d say I do fall quickly, but I’m also good at setting the boundary – I won’t let myself go there unless I’m confident about it.’
The boys declared ‘There’s going to be competition in here!’ as they watched on from the terrace while Charlie strolled into the villa.
His arrival came hot on the heels of bombshell Antigoni Buxton, who wasted no times in whisking her chosen guys off for a speed-dating session.
Ekin-Su yelled ‘I’ve got a text’ to which the other ladies replied: ‘Shut up! Oh my God no! What is it?’

The text read: ‘Girls its time to get glam as tonight you’ll be welcoming a new boy into the villa.’
As the girls screamed with excitement, the boys stared down from the terrace as the newcomer mingled with the ladies.
And it was clear that they are worried about the bombshell hunk as Luca told the guys: ‘I’ll tell you what, there is going to be competition in here.’
Ekin then said in the beach hut that she would get to know Charlie after Jay’s wandering eye and date with Antigoni, and rejoiced that he favored ‘fiery’ girls.
Love Island continues tomorrow night at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub.
