"He kind of laughed and showed it to me cause I was a Love Island OG at this stage so I was like you should look into see if that's Love island."

"His phone rings two minutes later, he comes back in and his head is shook and hes like it's Love Island."

His friend Alex had no idea

Greg's other friend Alex however, had no idea he was even going on the show.

"I was in contact with Greg on the Friday evening and I hadn't heard from him in a while so I gave him a call."
