A Suffolk-based Love Island contestant has revealed what life is like following the show and his views on the current All Stars season.

Ched Uzor, who is 27 and currently a fitness coach in Newmarket, took part in the sixth season of the show, which aired in January 2020.

Before entering the villa, Ched was a scaffolder for two years after studying Business Management at the University of Suffolk in Bury St Edmunds.

Born in Nigeria, he moved to the county when he was eight years old.

The current season Love Island: All Stars, which premiered on January 15, has seen his fellow Islanders Demi Jones and former couple Molly Smith and Callum Jones return to the villa.

Ched said: "It was a good experience living with them. We got on well.

"It's unfortunate what happened with Callum and Molly but I think they could re-kindle. 

"They were together for four years so I think something's still there. They got on really well when we were in the villa. They have a strong connection."

As for his predictions for the season, he says anything is possible: "It's unpredictable and nobody knows what's coming next.

"I think they need to throw in more challenges, but I think they'll keep bringing bombshells in and we don't know what's coming."

Ched described his time in the villa as "surreal" and "a blur", but said it wasn't a big deal going back into normal Suffolk life.

"It wasn't a big deal going back to normal," he said. "I thought it wasn't really a big deal, I was just on a TV show. I came out and just cracked on really."

His time in the ITV series saw him couple with 20-year-old Jess Gale, but the pair later split.

Ched added: "We weren't in a serious relationship. We left the villa together and it was mutual. We barely saw each other due to lockdown and it fizzled out.

"There are no hard feelings. I still get on with Jess.

"I wouldn't do Love Island again. It wouldn't be the same, it's not a fresh experience now."

Ched Uzor was speaking to the East Anglian Daily Times on behalf of stocklytics.com.
