Winter Love Island 2020: Meet Mike Boateng

We can't WAIT for striptease week with this one

Mike Boateng

by Marianna Manson |

There's something about emergency service-people heading into the villa that make them 100% (approx) sexier to the viewing public.

Sure, fire fighter Michael Griffin may have lost his job after his stint on last summer's series, but that's okay because he provided us with some serious eye-candy (before he turned out to be a bit of a snake, that is).

But now there's a new real life hero in town - step forward Mike Boateng, a police officer from London. Fingers crossed her makes it to striptease week...

Who is Mike Boateng?

Mike is a newcomer to reality TV, having made a living for himself looking out for civilians as a crime-fighting member of the police. Swoon.

How old is Mike Boateng?

For 24 years old, Mike has certainly achieved a lot.

Where is Mike Boateng from?

Along with plenty of others in the winter line up, Mike hails from London, but splits his time between the capital and Manchester.

We reckon Mike's going to be a cheeky chappy who's got natural charm with the ladies. He said, "I’m lucky because of my job as a Police Officer I can use the cheeky lines about getting handcuffs out! It normally works."

"My charm and my character [are what make me the perfect Islander]. I’m a very personable person so I’m easy to approach and I’m hoping that’ll make it easy for me to speak to a girl and connect with her."
