Marvin has just coupled up with Maura (Picture: ITV)During one of the beefiest episodes of this series to date, several new couples have emerged on Love Island following the Casa Amor split.
Ovie Soko, Jourdan Riane, Joanna Chimonides, Belle Hassan, George Rains and Marvin Brooks have all been chosen by the Islanders in the latest recoupling, and have therefore been permitted to stay on the island.
Maura was the one who chose to couple up with Marvin after she first couldn’t decide between the more mature Marvin, and Dennon, who made her laugh so much he gave her ‘bellyaches’.
As we wait to see how their coupling will play out, here’s what you need to know about Marvin.
Who is new Love Island boy Marvin Brooks?
Marvin, 29, hails from Bournemouth, is a personal trainer – having trained the likes of Harry Redknapp – ex Royal Navy Officer, and has played football for Poole Town FC.
He has apparently spent the last 10-12 years trying to find a match, and his celebrity crush is Jessica Alba.
When it comes to what makes him the perfect Islander, he’s said: ‘I am strongly opinionated and very competitive.
‘I’ve always been good at sports and without sounding big headed I’ve always done OK with the opposite sex, so coming up against the other good looking lads will definitely test me.’
He’s also admitted that he has something of a wandering eye and that he’s both cheated and been cheated on previously.
Maura ended up picking Marvin after being torn between him and footballer Dennon because of Marvin’s age and the fact that her mammy would like him.
However Dan Rose, Dennon Lewis and Stevie Bradley – all of whom were Casa Amor cast members who were not chosen and subsequently sent home – have all insisted that Marvin changed strategy during his time in the Casa and that he is ‘doing whatever it takes’ to stay in the villa.
Dan has said: ‘He doesn’t feel genuine towards Maura. I think it depends on how it pans out whether she’ll realise that.’
Stevie, who tried making it work with Lucie Donlan only for her to pick George Rain, added: ‘I think Marvin changed strategy half way through. I didn’t think he liked Maura.
‘I think he realised this was a way for him to get in. He’s a lovely bloke but I definitely saw a change in direction.’
