Love Island sign Nigel Benn’s ‘secret’ boxer son Harley as first contestant for 2021 series


LOVE Island bosses reckon they’ve signed a summer knock-out — boxing legend Nigel Benn’s “secret” son.

Harley Benn, 24, also a pro boxer, is poised to be a big hit when the ITV2 show returns.

Hunky Harley was conceived after Nigel, 57, had an affair with his mum Lisa Andrews while going through IVF with second wife Carolyne.

Unsuspecting Carolyne gave birth to their twins, Conor and India, four days after Harley was born.

But ex-world champ Nigel only accepted he was Harley’s dad after a paternity test.

“He’s had video meetings with the casting team and everyone is very excited at the prospect of having him on the show.”

Harley has told of his strained relationship with his dad and fell out with half-brother and rising ring star Conor.

A Love Island spokeswoman said: “No decisions have been made on the line up.”
