The first 12 contestants for this year's Love Island villa were announced on Sunday night ahead of the show returning on June 3.

Curtis was one of the six guys announced to walk into the villa on Monday night and Holly certainly isn't surprised to see he's heading in.

"I wasn't too surprised to see Curtis' name amongst this year's cast for Love Island as a few of us from DWTS had predicted it back at the start of the year."

Continuing, Holly said she's a massive Love Island fan and hopes Curtis gets a chance to be himself on the show.

"He's really fun to be around and has such a cheeky sense of humour. I hope he can be himself on the show as I can imagine it's tough when producers put so many big personalities together."

The 27-year-old will be rooting for Curtis come Monday night when Love Island returns to Virgin Media Two at 9pm.
