Love Island 2016: Vicky Pattison's new boyfriend Omari Caro tipped to join cast

Vicky Pattison

Vicky Pattison's new flame is reportedly set to star in the Love Island 2016 cast.

The Geordie beauty, who last year won I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, is said to be dating rugby player Omari Caro.

The new couple went for drinks this week and the Daily Mirror reports that it followed Omari meeting ITV bosses about this summer's new series of Love Island.

With former Geordie Shore star Vicky having just dumped Spencer Matthews over fears of him cheating, having her new guy on Love Island could prove tricky.

A source told the newspaper: “Omari met Vicky for a drink after one of his casting meetings and they’ve been flirting since.

“He might have to rethink going on the show.”

ITV confirmed earlier this year that Love Island would return to ITV2 in the summer, once again hosted by Caroline Flack.

The former Celebrity series was revamped last year and proved a strong ratings winner for the channel with the new format.
