Big Brother 2017: Lotan Carter has applied to join Love Island

Big Brother 2017

Lotan Carter reportedly turned down Love Island 2017 in order to appear on Big Brother this summer.

And now he's applied to join the villa all over again.

Lotan was ejected from the BBUK house earlier in this year's series, which has been the least watched to date.

Love Island on the other hand has proved to be a huge hit with over 2 million viewers tuning in.

And one of those 2 million is Lotan himself, who has seemingly been catching up on the ITV2 series since leaving Big Brother.


Speaking to Now magazine, who say Lotan "turned down an offer to jet onto Love Island in favour of the Big Brother house", the stripper revealed he had the hots for Camilla Thurlow.

"She’d just have to look at me and I would totally turn to mush – I wouldn’t know what to say to her," Lotan said.

He went on: "I was kind of hoping she’d get kicked out so I could meet her at a party. She said to that guy [Jonny Mitchell]: 'I don’t care if I leave,' and I thought: 'I don’t even have to go in there. I can just wait on the outside for her...'"

Lotan revealed to the magazine that following his Big Brother exit he applied to become a new Islander for this year's series in a bid to meet with Camilla.

"I thought the only way I was going to get her is if I went in – so I applied," he said.

But Lotan ruled out having sex on TV if he does pop up in the Love Island villa.


"No matter how attractive someone is, if I genuinely liked her, why would I disrespect her by shagging her on TV? The reason I fancy her [Camilla] is because she’s not that kind of girl.

"I don’t want someone that just anyone can have," he explained.

Big Brother and Love Island continue nightly on Channel 5 and ITV2 respectively.
