Talking about why he wanted to head into the villa this year, Dami said: "This year I was kind of being more open to new things and I think actually that's why I put myself out there to get some new experiences. 

"Love Island is a different experience; I will be talking to different girls, it might not go well with some, might go well with others, so it's a fun experience."
