You could be forgiven for forgetting the names of of Love Island's Casa Amor bombshells, as the vast majority don't have the easiest of rides on the show. Bless them.

While the odd one or two manage to slither their way in to the villa on the arm of an OG and end up winning the show (Sanam Harrinanan doesn't get enough credit for this), the vast majority make a minor impression on Islanders and viewers in Casa Amor and end up being sent home after five days – which let's be honest, isn't even enough time to significantly boost those Instagram numbers.

While the rest of the fandom might have forgotten about them, here at Closer, we certainly haven't and one of those Casa Amor casualties we want to remind you about is Kain Reed.

Kain was a Casa Amor bombshell during winter Love Island 2023 (not easy), but never made it to the main villa.

One very Closer titbit we've recently learned about Kain is that he has a very, VERY famous bestie from another reality show – and (this is cute af) they're so close that they call each other 'brothers', which honestly gives us feels.

So who is the mystery celeb bezzie? Well, it's none other Kyle Christie from Geordie Shore; the reality star frequently appears on Kain's grid and stories and we're so here for this showbiz crossover.

No clue how these two know each other, but we're guessing it has something to do with them being two attractive men from Newcastle.
