Curtis Pritchard on Love Island: Everything you need to know about the ballroom dancer and contestant

The summer of love is back – find out more about one of its singles looking for a new dancing partner.

Love Island is filling up its villa with a new plane load of singles all looking for romance.

Here’s everything you need to know about Curtis Pritchard.

Age: 23

From: Shropshire

Occupation: Ballroom and Latin dancer

Yes, he’s that Curtis Pritchard

“I would say my claim to fame is that I’m on Dancing with the Stars Ireland and AJ Pritchard from Strictly Come Dancing is my brother.”

He knows he’s lived a sheltered life

“I have lived a very sheltered life because of my dancing, I’ve not done a lot of going out partying, going on dates because I haven’t had time to. Being truthful I’ve probably been on less than 10 dates, maybe five dates.

“I have never met anyone online, I’ve never used a dating app. I’ve met everyone in person, which I think is better. All of this meeting people on social media and apps is fake. People portray their life how they want it to be and it isn’t how they truly are.”

He could fall in love with anyone

“I’m sure everyone has their idea of the perfect girl but I don’t. This sounds really clichéd but love is blind and I truly do believe that. I like blondes and an athletic body, not too fake and somebody that respects themselves. But if the complete opposite comes in and I fall madly in love with them then I’ve completely lied to you. Love is blind.”
