But Liam may be tempted in Thursday’s episode as he was chosen by the public to go on dates with newcomers Afia Tonkmor and Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu.
Speaking in the Beach Hut after being chosen, Liam says: ‘It’s a massive booster, definitely what I needed, I am buzzing now, I can’t wait to meet the girls.’
Afia and Ekin-Su await Liam’s arrival in the candle-lit courtyard and first up is Afia.
Liam is quick to compliment the new arrival, saying: ‘I like your vibe, you’re just a laugh, a bubbly, outgoing girl and that’s exactly what I want.’
Afia asks: ‘Would you say I am your type?’
Liam says: ‘You’re definitely my type, 100%.’
