Meet The Irish Fella On Love Island Australia

An Irish man is set to appear on the new series of Love Island Australia.

23-year-old Eoghan Murphy is originally from Laois and moved Down Under in 2006.

The real estate agent is currently living on the Gold Coast and is recently out of a nine year relationship.

"My values are a lot more old school than what's floating around today."

"I was raised by a single mum. He adds "I was in a relationship from when I was 14 up until last year. I treat women the right way."

When it comes to love, Eoghan insists that he isn't a heartbreaker. "A lot of girls look at me and think I'm a player, but I'm truthful, I'm honest and I'm loyal."

Eoghan is hoping to find himself a brunette in the villa. He says she must be "fun, not rude, polite and extremely ladylike" and added that he wants to "put her on a pedestal like she is the only girl in the world."

Love Island Australia kicks off on Monday, October 7th.

It hasn't been confirmed whether the show will air in Ireland.
