Love Island Michael Griffiths: Everything You Need To Know

Love island 2019 has kicked off with a bang as this year’s Love Island stars enter the villa. But just who is Mr Michael Griffiths?

This firefighter had a pretty sizzling start to the villa as he was welcomed with surfer girl Lucie Donlan stepping forward to gain his attention and with Lucie being the girl who seems to have caught every guy’s eye, what choice did he have but to couple up with her.

But, this is Love Island after all and sadly the firefighter got burnt when Lucie decided to step forward for her curly-haired ‘type’ Joe Garrat. Ouch.

After being put on the subs bench for a brief period, Michael was coupled up with the Last Girl Standing; Yewande.

But Who Is The Straight-Talking Scouser?

AGE: 27

FROM: Liverpool

OCCUPATION: Firefighter

What’s He Looking For?

This Liverpudlian describes himself as a “straight-talking guy” who always tells it how it is.

In a totally modest way, he rates his looks out of ten and has said he will stop at nothing to get the islander of his dreams.

“I get complimented on my smile a lot. People seem to be obsessed with my lips. I’d rate myself ten out of ten, I would have said nine but I’m a hero so it bumps it up.”

His perfect partner is someone who has a brain behind the looks and who he can have a conversation with.

They have to have a bit of banter and not take themselves too seriously and of course, have a ‘nice bum’.

“Somebody that smells is an immediate turnoff.”

Michael explains:

 “I’m open and energetic, so I’m easy to get along with.

“The three worst things about me? Again, I’m a straight-talking guy and people don’t always like the truth.

“Even though it’s one of the best things about me, it’s also one of the worst. I’ll just say it how it is.

“I eat a lot, little and often, people might find that quite annoying. I’m always late!”

Turn-offs for Michael include if someone smells…

Let’s hope the girls have packed plenty of deodorant as it’s sure to be sweltering in that villa.

He’s A Firefighter

He said:

“I’m a hero! I’m a firefighter, who doesn’t want their own firefighter? Their own local hero.”

He’s never saved a cat… but he has saved a cow.

He Has A Degree In Bio-Medical Sciences

Getting to know his current partner Yewande – who has a degree in bio-medical technology.

Michael graduated with his degree before deciding to change his career path to save lives with the emergency services.

Quite the career change…


He Cheated On His Past Girlfriend

Michael explained how he has been in previous long-term relationships and had about four or five girlfriends in total.

“I’ve been cheated on plenty of times but I am loyal. I think I’ve cheated once but it was more of a revenge cheat. I’ve been loyal to all of them apart from one.”

We’re all familiar with Anton’s wandering eye but could Michael have the same affliction?

When talking about how he’ll act in the villa, he explained:

“If I like somebody then I’ll go for it. There’s not really anything that could stop me.

“Everybody I meet will be a new person so they’re not going to be my best mate, so if a girl I’m speaking to is coupled up and we get on, I’m still going to talk to her.


“I’ll do it in a respectful way but I’m going to talk to her and let her know the situation and see where it goes from there. If she then likes me… sorry! It is how it is.”

He’s A Personal Trainer

Well, of course he is. Just look at him!

When he’s not putting out fires or saving cats in trees, Michael moonlights as a personal trainer.

Looks like he might be causing a bit of a storm in the villa but could he make it all the way to the final?


Currently, boxer Tyson Fury’s brother, Tommy Fury, is favourite to win with the bookies but it’s only early days.

Anna Vakili – the UK’s answer to Kim Kardashian as she’s being called – is also set to head straight to the final. She is currently partnered with Sherif Lanre.

We’ve got a fair few weeks of drama before we find out who the next Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer are…
