Model Brad Howard has reportedly been approached by the show's producers...
It’s hard to remember a time before Michelle Keegan was Mrs. Mark Wright.
The 29-year-old actress has been married to the ex-TOWIE star for almost two years, and the gorgeous couple are looking more loved-up than ever.
On Mark’s 30th birthday on Friday, Michelle captioned a cute montage of photos: ‘Happy 30th birthday to the other half of me. @wrighty_ not only my husband but lucky enough to call my bestfriend. ❤️.’
Aw. But way back before Mich had even met Mark, she was dating a hunky male model named Brad Howard.
And we may soon be seeing a lot more of Brad, as it’s been reported that he’s been approached for this year’s series of Love Island.
It’s not been confirmed if he’s shown any interest (or if he’s even single), but judging by what Michelle’s said about him in the past, the girls in the villa would be very pleased to have him.
Michelle once told Daily Mail: ‘Brad is very supportive of my career. If I have a long day filming, he won’t moan if he doesn’t see me.

‘Whenever male fans come up to me in the street, he always takes a step back. I think the only time he gets annoyed is when we’re having a romantic meal in a restaurant and people come over. But he understands it’s part of the job.
‘Brad does have a really kind and thoughtful side to him. He looks after my sausage dog Phoebe when I’m working and he surprised me with a trip to Las Vegas as a Christmas present and recently took me away to a spa in Bath for a few days.’
A Love Island representative tells the Daily Mirror: ‘Applications for the next series are still open and no decisions have been made on cast.’
So we guess we’ll just have to wait and see…
