The summer of love is back – find out more about one of its singles looking to ignite a fire.

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 Michael Griffiths.

Age: 27

From: Liverpool

Occupation: Firefighter and personal trainer

He wants to be someone’s hero

“I’m a hero! I’m a firefighter, who doesn’t want their own firefighter? Their own local hero.”

He doesn’t like meeting girls through social media

“I like to meet people face-to-face. I’m a bit of an old school guy. I like to meet someone and have a conversation with them. I’ve met people through social media but you never really know what you’re getting until you get there.

“You can gauge what someone is like if you meet them whereas on social media you can be who you like. They could have all the chat and then you meet them and it’s like watching paint dry.”

He’s loyal…most of the time

“I’ve been cheated on plenty of times but I am loyal. I think I’ve cheated once but it was more of a revenge cheat. I’ve had long-term relationships but I think I’ve had about four or five girlfriends. I’ve been loyal to all of them apart from one.”
