LOVE Island’s Kai Fagan has admitted he has feelings for a previous contestant days before he is set to enter the South African manor house.
The 24-year-old Manchester rugby player and teacher is hoping to try his luck of getting into a relationship as he touches down in South Africa for the second-ever winter series.

But with two days until the show’s launch, Kai has told The Sun about crushing on the season seven islander Mary Bedford.
Talking about his dream girl from previous seasons, he said: “The one that came to my mind straightway would be Mary Bedford.
“I like a girl who is strong-minded, intelligent, driven and hard working.
“I follow her on Instagram, and she looks like she’s driven, and she’s working hard at the minute.”
Someone like the 23-year-old blonde bombshell would be “the sort of girl” he is looking for.
This comes as the Love Island singleton has not had a girlfriend for “nearly two years”.
With potential love triangles, he is not worried about stepping on people’s toes to achieve his goal of getting his lover.
He said: “No, if I want a girl, I’ll go for the girl.
“If I find somebody that I find genuinely interesting, got a good connection with, then I’m going for it.”
Kai was second to be confirmed in the series line-up on January 9.
He will join nine other islanders, including biomedical science student Tanya Manhenga, 22, 27-year-old Michelle Keegan body double Olivia Hawkins, and the show’s first partially sighted contestant Ron Hall, 25.
The Essex financial worker lost sight in his right eye after a football accident where he “went in for a header and got kicked in the face”.
In 2021, the ITV show made history by signing its first-ever disabled star, 26-year-old Hugo Hammond.
