Love Island’s Brad may not have found love from being on the show, but he has gained a family member.

The 26-year-old was booted off the show this week and was on chat show Lorraine to talk about his exit.

He also shared revealed that a long-lost sister he had never met got in touch after seeing him on Love Island.

“I grew up just with my nana,” he told Ranvir Singh on Lorraine. “My dad wasn’t on the scene, but I always knew I had a younger sister. I’ve tried to get in contact with her for years, searching social media, trying to find out who she was, I just had her name.”

He said that seeing after Love Island, she saw him and got in touch: “Basically, she reached out to us and I FaceTimed her for the first time. The first time I’ve seen her face and spoken to her and heard her voice was literally just a couple of days ago.

“I now have a relationship with her I can grow from. So if anything’s to come from my Love Island experience, [it’s that] I found love in a different way.” CUTE!

He added: “It means the world to us. I’m one of six on my mum’s side and my brothers and sisters are massive for me. I try and spend as much time with them as I can,” he explained.

Brad explained that his sister is 15 and having another sibling is ‘massive’.

“You go on that show to find love, but it isn’t always guaranteed. What is guaranteed is what you have at home.”
