If there’s one thing we’ve noticed about this year’s Love Island boys, it’s that they’re TALL.

The likes of Kai Fagan, Jordan Odofin and Tom Clare would tower over us and, frankly, we’d love it. There are also rumours doing the rounds that Casey O’Gorman is another colossus at 6ft, although fans have been less than convinced as he looks average height next to some of his co-stars.

Well, after being dumped from the villa alongside Rosie Seabrook, Casey has finally confirmed how tall he actually is and, in the words of Lizzo, all the rumours are true.

Casey was taking part in an Instagram Q&A when one of his followers asked, “How tall are you?”

He replied, “Right, let’s address this question. I am 6ft tall.”

But despite being tall by most standards, Casey revealed he was actually the shortest boy in the villa.

“I was the shortest, it sucked. Ron was the second shortest, but he was 6ft1. You had boys like Kai and Tom who were 6ft5. Jordan was 6ft6 who I had to walk in with, so I looked tiny standing next to him in the walk-in.

“You’ve got Shaq who is 6ft3. They’re all just very tall boys in there so it did look like I was short but I can promise you I’m 6ft.”

Casey's confession comes after Cynthia Otseh-Taiwo, who got to know him very well in Casa Amor, spilled the beans about his height when she appeared on heat Dates alongside Layla Al-Momani.

Despite a steamy few days together, Casey decided to stick with Claudia come the recoupling, leaving Cynthia in tears before the fire pit.

In an exclusive chat with heat, Cynthia spilled some major tea about her former flame and revealed that Casey – the very same Casey that strutted into the villa looking like a small child in the shadow of fitlord Jordan - is, in fact, 6ft tall.

In a conversation about how fit and tall this year's boys are (no shade, but we assumed Casey's names would be omitted) Cynthia revealed, "It's Casey that looks short – he's 6ft, but all the boys are like 6ft 3 [or taller]."

Is Casey O'Gorman friends with Joe Garratt?

We’re starting to wonder if you can even get on Love Island these days without knowing an Islander from years gone by.

Every time producers chuck a bombshell in to the villa, it seems that their connection to a past Islander quickly comes to light.

A recent example is Casey.

Shortly after it was announced that Casey would be joining the cast, Love Island 2019 star Joe Garratt took to his Instagram Story to reveal that the pair were friends.

Taking to his Instagram story to share a picture of them together, he added the caption, “Give them hell tonight bro ❤️🏝 Go well! @caseyogorman.”
