Love Island star set to appear on new season of The Bachelor UK

He's set for a return to our screens...

Love Island’s Jonny Mitchell is said to be joining another reality TV show.

The 26-year-old, who recently split from Made in Chelsea’s Stephanie Pratt, failed to find love in the ITV2 villa this summer.

And it looks like he’s ready to dip his toes back into the dating pool, after being tipped to join a reboot of The Bachelor UK.

Channel 5 aired a UK version of the popular dating show in 2011, with rugby player Gavin Henson looking for love.

And while neither season ended with a life-long romance being forged, station bosses are said to be ready to have another go with the idea.

Metro reports that Jonny was approached about the idea after Love Island wrapped, but his then-blossoming relationship with Stephanie Pratt put things on hold.

Following the couple’s split last month, talks between the former ITV2 contestant and Bachelor bosses are said to have resumed.

A source told the publication:

“Now Jonny is single TV bosses have seen the stir he causes and there is talk of The Bachelor coming back and him being the lead role in the show.

“He has confidence, money and no shortage of women wanting to get with him, but he hasn’t met the right Mrs Mitchell yet.

“He feels The Bachelor could be a good way to meet the right match and the love of his life

“Conversations began after Love Island but stopped when he got together with his ex, but now he is free and single the conversation has begun again.”
