Love Island’s latest blockbuster Charlie Radnedge has made a big impression.
Real estate developer Luca Bish immediately said “f**k off” when he came last night to meet the girls, who were beside them with excitement when they saw the car. New rivets.
With his chiseled body and classic look, young Charlie in London is sure to make the temperature in the mansion soar.
But what we have to know about this man – from his Made in Chelsea connection to his surprising real age – is the waning of blonde bombshell.
Charlie may be making his reality TV debut, but he already has friends in high places.
The New Islander is best friends with Made In Chelsea favorite Miles Nazaire, who was on the show on season 15.
Miles took to Instagram to show her support for her mate, saying: “Secrets out, Charlie is on Love Island. We’ve known for weeks and it’s got us on can’t say anything.
“Me and the boys obviously know this and this is why he doesn’t show up on social media or we don’t hang out with him.
“However, please support our little boy Charlie. He’s amazing, he’s our best mate and he’s going to kill him. He’s one of the funniest people in the world. funniest we know.”
Miles’ co-star Harvey Armstrong also offered support for the bomb blast, posting: “Unbelievable @CharlieRadnedge my boy in the mansion.”
Though he’s not convinced his friend is going on a romantic trip, he added: “You don’t find love there, man.”
Fans were confused when Charlie first appeared on the show with many people trying to figure out the age of the bomb.
He told ITV he was “a bit more mature” than most of the contestants, but it turned out he was 28.
That makes him just a year older than Davide Sanclimenti, who has been criticized for a rift with 19-year-old Gemma Owen.
The Italian doesn’t seem to be the biggest fan of bombshells as he quips: “Charlie…the name says it all”.
While Davide’s former partner Ekin-Su is a bit more impressed with Charlie, especially for his age, as she has admitted wanting an older man.
Now that Ekin and her teammate Jay are on the rocks, will she be able to turn her back on the new guy?
With his blond locks and strong bone structure, some eagle-eyed viewers assumed they had seen Charlie before.
Fans were quick to point out the similarities between London’s Arthur Shelby and Peaky Blinders, played by Paul Anderson.

There is an obvious similarity between the pair and one viewer who tweeted: “Charlie belongs to the Peaky Blinders.”
However, while he may look like a ruthless villain, Charlie’s glassy voice will stand out more than a mile in Birmingham!
‘Ready to settle down’
Although MIC’s Harvey isn’t optimistic about his friends’ chances of finding love in the mansion, Charlie has said he’s ready to settle down.
“I’ve been dating quite a bit in London and I’ve been single for three years, so I don’t have a lot of success in that area, so why not try something new,” he told ITV.
Pointing out that he’s “a bit more mature” than some of the other contestants, he added: “I figured out a few things. I think I’m ready to settle down, basically.”
The man claimed he had his eyes on Ekin-Su, Paige and Tasha before he entered the mansion, but pointed out that he ‘could be with someone he didn’t like before’.
With his first night under the boys’ watch, we can’t wait to see what happens after this New Year’s Eve!
