Aaron Waters is "100 per cent" open to moving to the UK if he finds love on 'Love Island'.

The 25-year-old hunk - who was runner up on the Australian version of the show in 2021 - is ready for romance in South Africa and is particularly attracted to northern accents, though the only hopeful who would fit the bill is 22-year-old Liverpudlian Tanya Mahenga.

He told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "I honestly feel like a lot of the UK girls are very articulate and hold themselves very well.

“Some of the accents are so hot. I can’t remember exactly but I think it’s the Manchester accent.

“I can’t wait to [date a UK girl]. I’d sway more to the side of moving to the UK but if we got really serious and were going strong it would also be cool to take her to Australia.”

When he took part in the Australian show, Aaron coupled up with Jess Velkovski, but they split up three months after the programme ended.

He reflected: "It was well over a year ago. Our connection wasn’t as strong as people thought and it never got that far, unfortunately.”

Aaron recently insisted he is "different" to all the other guys taking part in 'Love Island' this winter.

He said: "It was divine timing, I think it is the perfect opportunity for me to finally meet someone. Besides being an Aussie, I’m different to most because I have a sense of awareness of who I am and what I’m looking for.

"When I’m talking to girls it’s not on a surface level, I can dive deeper to try and build a connection. I’m loyal, honest, great at communication and self-awareness so when it comes to dealing with obstacles and adversity in a relationship. I’m able to talk openly about how I feel to try and work around things. I think the key to any good relationship is being content in yourself and I’m very happy in myself and who I am. I’m also very good looking, obviously!"

'Love Island' airs at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX. The dating reality show can be seen in Ireland on Virgin Media Two and Virgin Media Player.
