Love Island's Eyal Booker signs-up for E4's Celebs Go Dating

Love Island, Eyal Booker

Love Island's Eyal (aka #deep) left the villa a single man. So he's looking for love again, this time in E4's Celebs Go Dating...

Despite his model good-looks and #deep conversations, Love Island's Eyal Booker got dumped from ITV 2's hit reality show on Day 25 and left the Spanish villa a single man.

However, the model from London certainly hasn't been sitting at home feeling sorry for himself. He's been snapped about all over town, and has reunited with some Love Island favourites including presenter Caroline Flack!

Simon has long been a fan of soap operas, and especially loves OVER-THE-TOP plots involving evil twins, hair-pulling catfights and natural disasters.

Anyone remember the Sunset Beach earthquake/tidal wave?

Or when Krystle Carrington got locked in the attic and replaced by look-a-like Rita in Dynasty?!


Simon has written for a variety of TV and childrens’ magazines/websites including Inside Soap, Nickelodeon, What’s On TV, Radio Times, Metro, Girl Talk, Disney Girl, Toxic! and Digital Spy.

He has reported LIVE from the red carpet at The British Soap Awards interviewing glammed-up stars from soapland, and hosted a Facebook LIVE session for Metro with Home and Away legend Ray Meagher (Alf "Stone the flamin' crows!" Stewart) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Aussie soap.


Simon is also co-author of The Treasures Of Coronation Street (Carlton Books)


And the writer and director of (very!) low budget fright flick, Midsummer Night's EVIL and the sequel webisodes series, The Hatchet Woods HORROR.
