However, many were surprised when he said how old he is, with one tweeting: "Charlie is 28? Nah not a chance."

Another joked: "Charlie looks like he has 4 kids and a mortgage but instead wants a 21 Ibiza girl."

A third wrote: "This Charlie claims to be 28 …………….. 28 to the power of what? Looks like Daniel Craig in the yet untitled Bond reboot due out in 2025."

However, one other Love Island viewer came up with a different comparison, with one writing: "Charlie looks like Steve Backshall n Gordon Ramsey in one."
