Nigel Benn's son Harley signs up for Love Island?
Love Island producers reportedly sign up Nigel Benn's 24-year-old son Harley as the show's first contestant for this year.

Harley Benn, the son of former world boxing champion Nigel Benn, has reportedly been signed up as a contestant on this year's Love Island.

The 24-year-old is also an aspiring boxer and has been previously managed by promoter Frank Warren, who has the likes of Tyson Fury and former Love Island star Tommy Fury on his roster.

"Harley's already got a huge following and gets loads of attention from the girls," a source told The Sun.

"He's had video meetings with the casting team and everyone is very excited at the prospect of having him on the show."

The new series of the dating show is expected to get underway in late June in Majorca, although producers are believed to have secured a backup villa on the island of Jersey in the event that travel to Spain becomes impractical due to coronavirus.
