It has been a long time coming but Brad McClelland from Love Island 2021 has FINALLY revealed who his secret girlfriend is. Well, kind of.

The Newcastle lad reportedly started romancing the sister of a VERY famous footballer back in the summer but Brad neither confirmed or denied he was dating someone new. It turned out to be a clever move as fans couldn't help but speculate about his love life.

However, Brad has now gone Instagram official with Daisy Maguire, sibling of Manchester United player Harry Maguire, months after they were first linked.

It was still a pretty lowkey announcement though, as Daisy showed off a topless pic of Brad in the sea with her little brother and the ex-Islander was quick to add the photo to his own Instagram story.

It must be true love.

It's nice to see that he's got her family's seal of approval too.

Daisy is a talent assistant at Soccer Aid Productions and a source previously told The Sun, "Daisy and Brad haven’t been dating for long but they’re absolutely head-over-heels.

“They make a lovely couple and their respective family and friends think they make a good match.

“It is early days but Daisy makes Brad really happy. He can’t stop smiling.”

If it means Brad's boyish good looks are back in the press again, we are obviously here for it, we sure have missed those baby blues...

As he moves on with here's new girlfriend, here's everything you need to know about Brad...

Who is Brad McClelland?

Brad McClelland was the fourth lad to enter the villa as part of the original 2021 lineup. He's a big fan of adventure and travelling, with plenty of exotic snaps taken everywhere from Thailand to the Scottish lowlands. He describes himself as a "gym goer and coffee lover" - could he BE anymore wholesome?

Where is Brad McClelland from?

In case you missed it during his unforgettable date with Lucinda Strafford last year, where he mentioned it about 174629 times, Brad is from this lush green planes of Amble, Northumberland.

What is Brad McClelland's job?

Before appearing on Love Island, Brad was officially a labourer (and with that bod, we're honestly not surprised) but described himself as a bit of a wheeler-dealer type.

“I try and make as much money as I can by doing as little as possible," he says. "They’d probably say – not lazy, as I’m energetic – I just try to get away with doing literally nothing.”

At least he's honest.

What is Brad McClelland's relationship history?

Prior to appearing on Love Island, Brad told producers that he was looking forward to taking dating offline, saying, "I want to date face-to-face, I like meeting people. I’m easy going, laid back."

Brad's journey for love on the show was, well, short, he had brief (really brief) dalliances with Faye Winter, Rachel Finni and Lucinda Strafford before being dumped from the villa on day 16.

But he would of course appear to now be dating Daisy Maguire, who is also absolutely gorgeous obv.
