His intro into Love Island Villa
“When I am single, lets just say I like to move a little bit reckless. I am Shaq, I’m 24 and I’m an airport security officer from London. We say I’m the talk of the terminal. I’ve hard a few rumours about me going around as well, but only some of them are true.
“When the air hostess come through, they have their hair done all nice, makeup done, and obviously you want discounted flights as well, so..
” I should be at work working, but if the opportunity is there and it comes up then I’m gonna take it. You come across some crazy stuff in people’s bags that you wouldn’t believe.
“I’m searching this old lady’s bag, let’s just say I found a few adult toys. And her 75-year old husband was behind looking mortified!
