Love Island 2019: Kem Cetinay gives advice to new contestants ahead of series five launch — EXCLUSIVE
Kem Cetinay has given advice to the brand new batch of hopefuls entering the Love Island villa.
The 23 year old won the hit ITV2 show in 2017 with at the time girlfriend Amber Davies.
Love Island returns on Monday night when 12 new singletons — including AJ Pritchard and Tyson Fury’s younger brothers Curtis and Tommy — will battle it out for the £50,000 prize.
Former Dancing On Ice star Kem has exclusively told OK! online what advice he would give to the islanders as they prepare to be thrust into the limelight.

He said: “Be yourself because that show goes on for long enough that if you try and act different you get caught out.
“It’s on every day, it’s an hour a day, they see enough of you so be yourself. I think everyone that has done really well off the show and won it, it’s because they’re all really relatable normal people but if you go on there with a game plan and try and play a game quite a bit then it doesn’t really work in your benefit.”
After becoming a huge success following his time in the villa, Kem also discussed how he has managed to deal with the impact fan has had on his life.
“It’s been a whirlwind, really. I can’t really begin to start with what’s happened over the last two years, it’s just been insane but I’ve loved every minute of it.
“I’ve just stayed really close with my friends and family, I think that’s the one thing that’s kept me really grounded. Not that I have any reason to not be grounded but sometimes you can get really caught up in it.
“Especially when you come from not having anything to eight weeks in another country and coming back and it’s a bit mental.
“I think just having all my boys that I’ve always hanged out with and my friends and family and just doing the same stuff we’ve always done and that’s made it feel more like a job than a whole lifestyle. I think that’s one thing that I wanted to draw a line between.

“It’s a job and a passion rather than a lifestyle for me rather than getting caught up in the whole thing. I go in the morning just like my friends go to do their work, it doesn’t mean we have to talk about my work all day and talk about who I’ve met and what I’ve done.
“I go to my job, they go to their job and we still go and do the same things we’ve done every weekend.”
