Love Island’s Tommy Fury: Everything You Need To Know
Love Island’s Tommy Fury might be the brother to one of the biggest boxers in the world, Tyson Fury, but he’s taking things outside the ring and to a reality show- and he’s picked the best in the game: Love Island 2019.
He might be gracing our screens every night for the coming weeks, but he’s in no way a failure in his boxing career, having gone professional in 2018, fighting under the name ‘TNT’, and winning two fights since.
Be expecting a lot of gym sessions in the garden then, ladies and gents! You don’t get a body like that from sunbathing all day. And, if (by some miracle), he doesn’t end up with 18238 millions followers after the island, he has to be in shape to get back to his fighting ASAP!
He’s taken the more modern route to fame and landed himself a golden ticket to the Island of Love, so let’s see what there is to know about the green-eyed hunk…
He Doesn’t Actually Like To Be Known As Tyson’s Brother
Contrary to belief, given he said the words within about 2 minutes of being in the villa, the youngest Fury insists that he doesn’t like the label:
“I’m my own man and I’ve said it throughout my whole boxing career.”
“I don’t want to be labelled as his little brother, I’m my own man and I’m doing the best that I can do in life and that’s all I’m setting out to achieve.”
Could have fooled me!

When Tommy Fury and Curtis Pritchard entered the villa it was sure to cause a storm and unsettle the peace. They are a pair of lookers- which explains their arrival as a bombshell twist.
Love Island fans across the country went wild on Twitter when he strolled in at the end of the first ep:
absolutely no one:

The Man Utd fan is proud of his roots in Manchester and will no doubt be bringing some Mancunian slang to the villa.
He’s Told A White Lie
The Fury brother has found himself in some hot water, after revealing to have been single for 8-10 months when actually his girlfriend revealed they were still together, even in February.

The pretty blonde dropped a bombshell on her Instagram story, posting a picture of the pair, labelled with the date it was taken. She made a dig at his math skills whilst she was at it:
“I know your not the best at maths, but this is no excuse.”
Oooooooooh. How’s he getting out of this one?

He LOVES Hannah Montana
We’re as shocked as you are.
I know they say you can’t judge a book by its cover, but looking at that face you wouldn’t imagine him to be the Disney Channel type. You’d have thought the brother of Tyson would have been too busy trying to knock his big brother out…
“It’s mad because everyone judges me on my last name as being a d***head but I am anything but that. I love Hannah Montana for God’s sake! There isn’t one bad bone in my body.”

He Dated Ex- Coronation Street & Hollyoaks Star Chelsee Healey
Despite their TEN year age gap, with the actress being 30, it’s said the pair dated after meeting on a night out in Manchester last month.
It’s reported that the boxer failed to get Chelsee’s number on the night, so instead took to Instagram to hit her up.
“Tommy noticed her straight away and couldn’t stop looking at her. He was proper smitten.”

The string of DM’s worked a treat, bagging himself a date with the soap star. But, things didn’t work out for the Manchester pair:
“Chelsee eventually replied to his DMs and they went out on a date, where he decided she was “out of his league”.
Well, ‘it is what it is’- I’m sure he’ll have absolutely no worries getting the attention of the ladies in the villa.
