Love Island signs up Chelsea party boy who already tried to woo Lucie Donlan


LOVE Island has reportedly signed Chelsea party boy James Price for the summer series.

The 23-year-old recruitment consultant has already tried his hand at wooing series five star Lucie Donlan.

And now he's set to enter the famous villa as one of the hunky new recruits.

A source told MailOnline: "James is in final talks with producers and they're really keen on signing him this year.

"He's cheeky, fun and handsome – and will be a sure-fire hit with the female contestants, while he's also on the lookout for his dream girl."

James grew close to Lucie in Newquay before she found fame on Love Island in 2019.

She's now loved up with another Love Island star - Luke Mabbott - who she met after filming.

Meanwhile James made a name for himself as he partied in Chelsea close to where his friends live before the coronavirus pandemic hit.

Keen not to confirm any names before the series launches, a spokesman for ITV2 said: "No decisions have been made on the line up for this year's Love Island."

Love Island will return to Majorca this summer after getting the Covid all-clear. There were fears the reality dating show would have to be filmed in the UK amid restrictions.

Jersey, Cornwall and Devon were considered as locations for the ITV2 hit’s comeback.

But delighted executives have approved plans that will see a return to the Spanish isle in June.

And secret documents seen by The Sun show the extraordinary lengths being taken to make sure it goes ahead — including flying out a back-up cast.
