'First Dates' star Sam Reece and model Riah Read are reportedly in talks to appear on the next series of 'Love Island'
Sam Reece and Riah Read are in talks to star on 'Love Island'.
The former boyfriend of Stephanie Davies and the brunette model - who previously dated 'X Factor' wannabe Mason Noise - are both said to have entered negotiations with ITV bosses about appearing in the upcoming series.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "The sexy new cast will certainly have lots to talk about when they all get together."
Riah dated Mason for three years but is said to have ditched him following claims he cheated on her.
The 22-year-old stunner has been romantically linked to 'Ex on the Beach' star Jordan Davies and 'The Only Way is Essex' hunk Pete Wicks.
She previously starred on ITV show 'Travel Guides' - on which five British households were sent to review some of the world's most popular tourist destinations - and was mistaken for one of the Kardashian sisters while shooting the series.
Riah also appeared on 'Britain's Got Talent' in 2011 as one of the members of dance troupe High Definition.
Sam shot to fame on Channel 4 dating show 'First Dates' and went on to date former 'Hollyoaks' star Stephanie, but she dumped him on national TV while she was in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house in January after falling for Irish model Jeremy McConnell on the programme.
The 23-year-old model has since moved on with new girlfriend Taylor Ward - the daughter of 'Real Housewives of Cheshire' star Dawn Ward.
The couple are said to be planning a romantic getaway to a health bootcamp, but her mother is also said to be joining the pair on the trip.
Rumours of a romance between Sam and Taylor started last month when they were spotted looking close at a party in Manchester.
A source said at the time: "Sam looked smitten, every time I looked over he was just staring at her, it's cute."
