There's only one Love Island 2021 winner Liam Reardon, right? With his soothing Welsh accent and his model looks, Liam may have some competition in this year's series, though, as another Welsh Liam is hot on his tails.

Liam Llewellyn, who not only is FIT (just like Liam), he's also very Welsh. Just check out his surname.

Liam's co-star Toby Aromolaran was quick to comment on the announcement, hilariously acknowleding the similarities, writing, "@liamreardon1 you back in?".

Much to fans surprise, Liam replied, "@tobyaromolaran I wish bro 🤣."

We're not sure how to take his response, to be honest, what about Millie Court?

In other Liam news, the 2021 winner treated fans to a glorious throwback snap of himself in his glory days.

Liam, who won the last series of the beloved ITV2 show with alongside his girlfriend Millie shared the photo on Instagram as he wished his best mate a happy birthday.

He wrote, "Wishing my best mate a massive happy birthday. Always had each other's backs through thick and thin ❤️ Good job we both decided to have a haircut since this photo."

Look at HIS HAIR. Miles away from the Dan Edgar-esque perfectly styled quiff we're so used to.

Liam's hilarious post comes after he and Millie were forced to bat away split rumours after fans expressed their worry about the pair not spending much time together in recent months.

Fans are still questioning if things are okay after Millie jetted on a girls holiday and Liam headed back home to walk Mount Snowdon.

Some eagle-eyed supporters even spotted back in May that Liam followed a series of female models and influencers on Instagram.

One wrote at the time, "He also hasn't posted a picture with her in over a month, which is pretty unusual for his feed. He even posted pictures of himself at the Asos Beauty Awards alone even though they attended together," while another remarked, "Hope I'm wrong as I'd feel so bad for poor Millie but he is constantly following other girls like blue tick girls or models who aren't following him."

However Millie has hit back at the rumours, telling fans in an Instagram Q&A, "We're good thank you ☺️I know recently there's been a lot of speculation but we both just don't feel the need to plaster our lives on social media 24/7. But 10000% we will be watching the new series!! I've never missed on so sure as hell won't be missing the next one coming. I'm so bloody excited."

Here's everything we need to know about the former bricklayer and Welsh hunk Liam...
