Love Island is back, and a fresh cast of new islanders are in the villa hoping to find love.

The sexy singletons are spending the summer in a luxury Majorcan villa–while reality TV fans tune in every night to find out who will hit it off and who will simply be pied off.

The first wave of Love Island contestants coupled up and started getting to know each other. But with heads already turned, how long will the original pairings last?

Find out everything we know about Davide Sanclimenti so far.

Who is Davide Sanclimenti?

Davide Sanclimenti is a 27-year-old business owner from Rome, Italy, who lives in Manchester.

Davide says he will be the “Italian stallion” in the villa–and he’s pretty confident about his chances.

“With my Italian charm, I can also be a very romantic guy. I’m good looking and I’ve  realised since I first arrived in Manchester, a lot of English girls actually love me. They love to be around me and I love to be around them.”

But Davide says he’s “getting serious” about his life and wants to “find my soulmate, find my person so I can actually build something in the future, grow with them, be a family.”

The 27-year-old is single at the moment because he’s “very picky.” He explains, “It’s difficult to find someone that I really fancy but when I do, I become really close with the person.”

His family and friends would describe him as “a very deep person,” with a “good heart.”

He says: “For the people around me, I’m always there, ready to support and help them in a moment of need.”

Davide enjoys being in a relationship over dating, saying; “I am a relationship kind of guy, I prefer to be in a relationship but at the same time I don’t do a lot of dates.

“I meet a lot of girls, I meet them on social media or in a restaurant. I really need to be interested in the girl but I’m a relationship kind of guy and prefer to have someone stable near me.”

Girls hoping to impress Davide in the villa need to pay him attention as he says: “If a girl is really rude, or if she’s not giving me enough attention, I will just lose interest very quickly.”
