Love Island hopeful Kai Fagan discusses friendship with football ace Marcus Rashford



Love Island hopeful Kai Fagan has revealed he has a celebrity friend from his school days - Man United footballing icon Marcus Rashford.

The 24-year-old reality show contestant went to the same school as the 25-year-old forward and they went on to study at the same sixth form.

Kai will soon be seen on screens as he is one of the ten original housemates of the imminent ninth season of the hit ITV2 reality romance show.

But he has been looking back to his past before building his new influencer future by sharing details of his school days and friendship with Marcus.

Speaking to The Sun on Sunday, Kai opened up about his school-time encounters with Marcus, explaining: “He was in my class from 11 to 16 and we went to the same sixth form.

“Marcus was quiet, reserved and kept himself to himself. He’s always loved football.”

Kai added: “I often bump into people who work for him, like his PA, at the gym.”

PE teacher Kai was the first male contestant of the 2023 cast to be revealed earlier this month - with reports revealing he had high expectations for the upcoming series.

When asked why he is single, Kai revealed: "I’m single by choice. I’m looking for the right girl. I feel like I have quite high expectations.

"I don’t feel I should commit to someone unless I’m absolutely buzzing over them, because it’s not fair on them."

When asked how his family and friends would describe him, he spilled: "Chilled, caring, very impulsive and a good guy. I always put my friends and family first and spend a lot of time with them."

And, when asked to reveal something surprising about him, Kai said: "I’m a Jamaican citizen. Because of that I played rugby 7s for Jamaica.

"I play semi-professional rugby now for Burnage RFC. I’ve technically got three different degrees and went to three different unis."

He joins a host of other contestants that are taking part in the show including 20-year-old Welsh beauty Anna-May Robey, 21-year-old hunk Haris Namani, from Doncaster, and 27-year-old Brighton babe Olivia Hawkins.
