The announcement came with a teaser clip of Reardon where he touched upon his reasons for joining the dating show.
“I went on Love Island, fell in love, but now I’m at the agency hoping to move forward in my life,” said the former bricklayer. “So I’ve joined the agency because it’s been a long time since I’ve last dated and I think it should be a good way to get myself back out there.”
The former Islander also mentioned his ex-girlfriend when describing to the agency what he was looking for in a new partner.
“My usual type used to be a tanned brunette,” explained Reardon. “My ex-girlfriend kind of changed all that, so I’m just kind of happy with blonde’s, brunette’s, anything now, it’s more about personality.”
