Love Island 2019 isn’t Anton Danylukb’s first taste of fame – he previously starred in another reality show in his native Glasgow.
And despite being on the look for love, according to the 24-year-old, he suffers with a medical condition known as a wandering eye. Here’s everything you need to know about Love Islander Anton and that roaming eye of his…

Who is Love Islander Anton Danylukb?
Anton is a gym owner from Scotland — and he’s pretty proud at the thought of being the first Scottish lad on the show.
He describes himself as funny, hard-working and motivated, however, he has a few bad traits too, including being moody and an over-thinker.
But what is his worst trait? Probably that wandering eye.
“I’ve never really been loyal in any of my relationships,” he admitted before heading into the villa.
“My last relationship, I actually got caught cheating for the first time in my life and it changed everything for me.
“I saw how much it hurt her and what it did to her.
“So, for me going to into Love Island, it’s going to be the biggest test of my life.
“I know that if I am loyal to someone in that space of time when hot girls are being thrown in all the time then I know I can be loyal to them.”
Has Anton Danylukb ever starred in another reality show?
Yes – This isn’t Anton’s first taste of reality TV.
The new Islander previously starred in the now defunct show GLOW – a reality TV series based in Glasgow and in the same vein as the likes of Made in Chelsea, The Only Way Is Essex and Geordie Shore.
The gym owner was in a relationship with ex-girlfriend Denise Wilkie when he filmed the programme two years ago, but admitted they had their fair share of ups and downs.
Speaking in the first episode of the second series to pal Paddy about his love life, Anton admitted he was close to breaking up with Denise a number of times in 2017 because his hectic work life started to take a toll on her.
He said: “A few things have happened with Denise. We’ve had a few fall outs. We’ve been close to splitting up a few times if I’m honest Paddy.
“But, we’ve managed to get through it and we’re working on it. hopefully we can sort it out.”

What is Anton Danylukb looking for in the Love Island villa?
Anton didn’t specify whether he’s looking for love on the show, however, he definitely does have a type on paper.
Citing Margot Robbie in The Wolf of Wall Street as his perfect girl, Anton would like to couple up with a blonde if possible.
“She has to be hard working and good looking,” he added.
“They have to be into the gym because it’s such a big part of my life so it’s important that it’s a big part of their life as well.”
One thing he won’t tolerate in a relationship is a girl who lives off her parents.
“I’ve always been brought up to work for everything I have so I’d want someone with a similar work ethic,” he explained.
What has Anton’s ex said about him?
Anton’s ex – Denise Wilkie, 26, – admitted that he broke her heart but doesn’t harbour bad feelings towards him.
The stunning blonde fell for the gym owner after they met on holiday in Ibiza and went on to date him for a year back in 2016.
They quickly moved in together and even starred on short-lived Glasgow reality show GLOW where Anton, 24, was exposed as a cheat during a dramatic on-screen bust-up.
Now Denise has forgiven the self-confessed love rat and wants him to find happiness in the villa.
The salon owner, from Hamilton, says: “We are on good terms and I want Anton to do really well.
“You can’t hold a grudge forever and he has apologised for how he treated me so many times.
“I thought I could change him and that I was ‘The One’. But if Anton hadn’t done what he did, I wouldn’t be where I am now with my boyfriend Ryan, who treats me like a princess.”
She added: “He won’t cheat his whole life and will want to settle down at one point. Anton isn’t a bad guy, he’s just not great in relationships. He loves to love and enjoys thestart of them but, after a year, runs away or gets bored and wants to try something different.
“But if he meets the right person on Love Island maybe it’s the right time for him to settle down.”

Is Love Islander Anton Danylukb rich?
Judging by his interviews prior to entering the villa, he doesn’t sound like he’s short of a few bob.
When he was just 21-years-old, the gym owner bought himself a Porsche.
Although the car impressed the ladies, Anton wasn’t very happy about it.
He explained: “I picked a girl up in that and she started taking pictures when she was in the car and sending it to her friends. The fact that she was doing that made me think it meant something to her.
“It shouldn’t matter what I was driving whether that be a Corsa or a Porsche so I finished the date right there.”
