Michelle Keegan's ex-boyfriend Brad Howard has been approached by bosses to take part in the forthcoming series of 'Love Island'
Michelle Keegan's ex-boyfriend has been asked to do 'Love Island' this year.
The 29-year-old actress' former flame Brad Howard - who she dated from 2008 until 2010 - has been approached by bosses of the popular reality TV show to take part in the forthcoming series when it returns to television screens in the summer.
However, according to The Sun newspaper, it's not yet known if he's accepted an offer or whether the former 'Coronation Street' star will attempt to put him off the deal.
The brunette beauty may now be happily married to television presenter Mark Wright, who she wed in 2015, but she's always had kind things to say about Brad.
Speaking while they were dating, she said: "Brad is very supportive of my career. If I have a long day filming, he won't moan if he doesn't see me.
"Whenever male fans come up to me in the street, he always takes a step back. I think the only time he gets annoyed is when we're having a romantic meal in a restaurant and people come over. But he understands it's part of the job.
"Brad does have a really kind and thoughtful side to him. He looks after my sausage dog Phoebe when I'm working and he surprised me with a trip to Las Vegas as a Christmas present and recently took me away to a spa in Bath for a few days."
'Love Island', which is shot in a villa abroad, will return to ITV2 over the summer months and bosses are no doubt hoping to find people that will replicate the success of last year's show which saw Nathan Massey and Cara de la Hoyde win.
A representative told the Mirror Online: "Applications for the next series are still open and no decisions have been made on cast."
