When Mike Boateng appeared on the winter edition ofLove Island 2020 the police officer sent hearts racing.

There is something about emergency service people heading into the villa that make them 100% sexier to the viewing public.

Mike was in three couples (three! Actually, pretty standard tbh, unless you're e.g. Love Island 2023's resident snogger Tom Clare), and while he left with Priscilla Anyabu their beautiful love story was not to be.

Mike and 'Cilla split in 2021 but it seems that the former police officer is suffering from heartache once again as he posted about his broken heart just one day after Valentine's day in February 2023.

Our top investigative journalist skills suggest to us that this a football thing rather than a romance one though.

Speaking of getting our Marple hats on, Mike has just returned to Instagram after a mysterious absence of four months. A hell of a long time in influencing. Think of the car fresheners etc. he could have flogged in that time #Mike10.

"Hello mate. Long time no see," wrote fellow villa alumni Ched Uzor.

"My guy is back !! 🤞🏽🙏🏽," said Biggs Chris.

"😍👋🏾" said Rachel Finni, sentiments we can only echo.
