Former Kent footballer set to join Love Island in search of love

A former Kent footballer is about to make his way onto the popular dating show, Love Island.

Ronnie Vint, a former player for Dartford Football Club, will be entering the villa in Spain next week in hopes of finding love.

At 27 years old, Vint believes he is at the right age to find a serious relationship and settle down. He shared with ITV2, “I have always thought about Love Island but now I am 27 it feels like the right age for me to be serious about finding someone and settling down.”

Although he has had two serious relationships in the past, Vint has been focusing on his football career and enjoying the single life. But now, he is ready to find the right person to build a life with.

Vint is no stranger to the Love Island villa as he is close friends with former islander Olivia Attwood. In fact, he was the best man at her wedding to former Gillingham FC player Bradley Dack.

Speaking about his friendship with Attwood, Vint shared, “Bradley Dack is my best friend and he and Olivia are a big part of my life. I call Olivia my big little sister, she always looks out for me.”

Vint is not the only person with ties to Kent to enter the Love Island villa. Last year, Ashford dancer Ella Barnes and project manager Sammy Root appeared on the show, with Root even winning the competition with partner Jess Harding.

Fans can catch Vint’s journey on Love Island when it returns on Monday, June 3 at 9pm on ITV1, ITV2, ITVX, and STV.
