The Love Island contestants often know someone from the world of showbiz; it's usually a former Islander, or perhaps a TOWIE star, but royalty? Come off it.

Well ACTUALLY it turns out the latest 2024 bombshell, Omar Nyame, does have a cheeky link to royalty (no not THAT kind of cheeky link, get your mind out of the gutter.)

During a chat with producers before entering the villa, where he opened up about 'his typer on paper', 'what he brings to villa', and all those other random deets, Omar confessed to a) being a cadet and b) having been in the presence of THE QUEEN once upon a time. God rest her soul.

When asked to offer something not many people know about him Omar let us in on a little secret...

"I used to be an air cadet," he revealed, "And once marched for the queen."

We assume he means Queen Elizabeth II and not you know, Queen Victoria who passed away in 1901.
