Who is Manchester’s new Love Island bombshell Remi Lambert?

Heads turned on Tuesday night after two new male bombshells entered the Love Island villa. Jay Younger and Remi Lambert caught the attention of a number of contestants as they made their dramatic entrance.

Remi, 22, is a model and rapper from Manchester. The islanders were having a party at the end of Tuesday’s instalment of the ITV reality show when he came in unannounced alongside Jay, 28, from Edinburgh.

The pair’s arrival was first teased during Monday night’s show but they didn’t make their way into the ITV2 dating show’s Mallorcan home until last night. The other islanders were enjoying a “shimmer and shine” party after successfully completing a challenge earlier in the day.

So who is Manchester’s new contestant Remi?

Remi is a model and a rapper from Manchester. It is understood he is originally from the Moss Side area. In his line of work, he has partnered up with the likes of Primark, Charlotte Tilbury and Mercedes Benz.

The 22-year-old said he was inspired to enter the Spanish villa after seeing the relationship blossom between former contestants Molly Mae Hague and Tommy Fury saying he ‘wants love like that’.

Before entering, he said: “I feel like I’m going to bring the goofy vibe, the fun vibe that everyone needs and the chilled person that everyone can talk to if anything is wrong.”

He added that he was a ‘catch’ because he is ‘down for anything’ and said: “I’ll do random stuff like canoeing or a hot air balloon.”

When asked why he is still single, he said: “I think it’s by choice – I’m too picky. She needs to be 10/10 for everything. And I’m 6ft3”. I’d like a girl to be at least 5ft10.

“Recently I’ve been going on a lot of dates but I feel like now it’s time to find something more serious. I usually meet girls out and about on a night out. If I see a girl I like, I’ll just go over without hesitation and sometimes I meet girls through Instagram.”

Following Liam Llewellyn’s departure last week, Remi is now the youngest male contestant in the villa this season. After he entered, he caused a stir with Amber, who in the beach hut said: “On first glance, they both look kind of cute.”

Remi can be found on Instagram at the handle @remilambo. He has just over 16,000 followers, as of Wednesday (June 15).
