Carl entered the villa for the 2016 series with singer Luke White, IT sales manager Rob Dawe, and wrestler Adam Maxted, last of whom was the one to stay in the show the longest.
The then-27-year-old car salesman didn’t manage to stay in the villa, but he certainly brought the confidence when he arrived, likening himself to Magic Mike star Channing.
Before heading into the villa, Carl bragged: “None of them look like Channing Tatum. Being a Channing Tatum look-a-like is a bonus to say the least.
“I get told I look like him a lot.”
Hunky Carl was also quizzed about who he felt was his greatest competition from the other guys he was heading into the villa with.
He confidently responded: “I don’t even understand what the word competition means.”
The tattooed gym bunny said he trained in the gym up to five times a week, which will explain how he keeps in such good shape.
Being a car salesman, Carl also made sure to mention that he himself owned over 30 cars, so he can definitely brag about having sets of wheels to take Katie for a spin.
When he headed into the villa he had his eye on two iconic Love Island contestants: former Miss Great Britain champion Zara Holland and the feisty Kady McDermott.
Before his short stint in the villa, Carl commented: “I think Zara’s a little bag of heat and Kady is hot as well – if they’re coupled up I’ll happily take one of them off the guys’ hands.
“I like to go for what I want. I don’t let anyone stand in my way.”
We wonder if his high confidence levels helped attract Katie!
A source said: “He’s told her he’s not interested in being famous or another ‘Mr Pricey’ – he just wants to be with her.”
Will Carl be for the one for Katie?
And, more importantly, do you think he looks like Channing Tatum?
