Mike quit his job as an officer with the Greater Manchester Police for a place on the dating show.

Aaliyah's allegations come shortly after it was reported he's under investigation for, 'inappropriate behaviour.'

And GMP refuse to confirm or deny the allegations when asked by The Sun.

Aaliyah tells her story

The teen in question, Aaliyah sits down for a chat with The Sun this week to explain exactly what happened.

The now 18-year-old explains, '[Mike] came over to me and said, 'Come with me and I’ll show you around Manchester. I’ll show you a good time.''

Aaliyah goes on, 'He asked for my number.'

'I said my phone was broken, the SIM card wasn’t working, so he asked for my Snapchat.'

'I gave him it and he got back in the car and left.'

Mike admitted to resigning before taking part in the show but he never mentioned any of this.

'I did resign to come on the show. But I spoke with the chief Ian Hopkins and thank God we’ve got a good relationship.'

'So he has left the door open for me to come back if I do want to come back.'

When the reports first came out, the Islander's family vehemently denied any wrongdoing on behalf of Mike.
