Roman asked: "If you could appear on a reality TV show, you're four good looking lads, you clearly go to the gym… and a tattoo shop, so I’m gonna ask the question – Connor, Love Island, would you do it?"

Connor replied: "No. Three of us have got girlfriends so…"

As Kevin confirmed he was single, Roman asked: "Kevin, you're the single one – so Kevin? Love Island's on the cards?"

He told The Tab : "I've had a phone call from Love Island and rejected it, so we are very much in a strong relationship and I wouldn't change that even if the fame and attention gets bigger."

Alex added: "I have had to reassure my missus because as you can imagine she is worried along with my mates' girlfriends but I've told her that she was there for me at the low times and I'll never forget that."
