The identities of the Love Island 2024 cast dropped like flies over the bank holiday weekend and, honestly, we were so transfixed to Love Island's official Instagram account/the reactions on X/our own inboxes for any extra Islander (tea), we're thinking in lieu day? Just in case our editor is reading this...

We jest. In all honestly, we wouldn't have spent our bank holiday any other way because we are MAD Love Island fans, so it's all gravy.

In case you were busy outdoors having a life yesterday (eww), ITV revealed the identities of the Love Island 2024 OGs set to saunter, slow-mo-style into the Majorca villa on Monday 3 June and they look like a right spicy sort. It's giving skip the OGs and make it a bombshell-only villa.

One of the hotties no doubt spending this week doing push-ups in a secluded hotel room with just a Netflix account to keep him company is footballer Ronnie Vint, who after some serious Instagram digging we have learned not only knows a Love Island legend, but played the role of best man at her wedding last summer.

And when we say legend, we aren't hamming things up for the drama (for once). No, no, we mean Love Island 2017 queen Olivia Attwood.

Yep, it turns out Ronnie was Liv's husband Bradley Dack's best man when the couple tied the knot in June last year.

Taking to her Instagram shortly after Ronnie's promo pic hit socials, Olivia wrote, "Our @ronnievint is going into the villa!!!!! 🥹🥹🤗 Ron was best man at our wedding and he's literally like a brother to me - you guys are going to love him!! I know it it 🩵."

Like a brother to you, Liv?

So in our minds that means you'll be bursting through those villa doors on friends and families reunion day and on that day the heat team will lose it because we can then report, 'OLIVIA ATTWOOD MAKES HER VILLA RETURN.'

Upon entering the Love Island villa, Ronnie revealed, "Bradley Dack is my best friend and he and Olivia are a big part of my life. I call Olivia my big little sister, she always looks out for me."

How old is Ronnie Vint?

Ronnie was born 17 July 1996, making him 27 years old and a Cancer.

Where is Ronnie Vint from?

Ronnie was born in Greenwich, England. Which means he's a South East London boy 🔥

What does Ronnie Vint do?

Ronnie is a semi professional footballer – every series of Love Island needs at least one. Ronnie plays centre-back and joined Lewes FC back in 2023. Previously, he spent 10 years playing for Dartford.

Will Ronnie follow in fellow Love Island footballer Tyrique Hyde’s footsteps and make it all the way to the final? We hope so. We REALLY want to see Liv in the villa.

Does Ronnie Vint know Olivia Attwood?

He does. Ronnie is close friends with the series three star and her husband Bradley.

Who else does Ronnie Vint know from Love Island?

It seems that footballers really do stick together, as Ronnie is a rumoured pal of former Love Island 2023 contestant, Tyrique.

Tyrique made it all the way to the final alongside his on/off girlfriend, Ella Thomas. The pair were a fan-favourite couple, so hopefully he can share some of his expertise with his pal Ronnie. We doubt he’ll be able to teach his eyes to sparkle, but he can try. If you don't know what we mean, just look at him.

Tyrique commented on Ronnie’s latest Instagram post, a photo of Ronnie celebrating a goal, “Goals get girls😮‍💨”. Now that Ronnie is entering the villa, let’s hope Tyrique is right.

What is Ronnie Vint looking for in the Love Island villa?

Speaking to Love Island producers, Ronnie revealed, "I want someone that's family orientated, caring and career minded. Lookwise, I like blondes with nice boobs but am partial to a brunette too."

Does Ronnie Vint have an Instagram account?

He does, and you can follow him before he makes it big at @ronnievint.
