Who is Charlie Frederick?

Charlie Frederick is a 23-year-old model from Plymouth who entered Love Island 2018 a week after the programme’s launch.

Who is 100% his type on paper?

“If a girl can cook a nice curry or stir fry, I like someone who could cook, treat me nice and do nice things. I would do the same for them obviously in return. Someone with good banter who I can bounce off and someone who makes me want to be with them all the time.”

How loyal is Charlie in love?

“I have cheated once. It was bad, I didn’t feel good about it. I don’t think I’ve ever been cheated on, I really don’t think I have but it’s not nice, I shouldn’t have done it.”

How important are good mates?

“I’m all about mates and morals. If a girl sees a lad having a good time with their mates, they’ll be attracted to that. They want to see a guy having a good time with their mates. I’m looking to make pals.”

What are Charlie’s worries about Love Island?

“Are the girls going to fancy me? I’m there to find the one. I know I’m not an ugly guy but you just don’t know whether they are going to fancy me. I’m a certain type, I’m blonde and fair. You ask a girl what her type is and they might say ‘dark, tall and handsome.’

“Are they going to fancy me? Who knows. I’ll have to make them fancy me, turn up the charm and go on a date. I’ve never been in a situation where no one has fancied me but I’m not the sort of person who would notice in a bar if anyone was looking at me.”
