Love Island’s Andrew Le Page surgery: What is Islander’s scar on his chest

Love Island contestant Andrew Le Page has opened up about the scar on his chest after having secret surgery just weeks before entering the new villa.

The estate agent, who is currently coupled up with dancer Tasha Ghouri, admitted that he's heading into the villa as he's "actually single for once".

But before the hope of a budding romance could ensue, Andrew had to undergo some painful chest surgery.

He has discussed the procedure for the first time in an interview with The Mirror and other press, admitting that his recovery left him unable to train in the gym for six weeks.

He said: "I had some chest surgery, which meant I was out for six weeks, and then two weeks before I came in, I could start training again so it's just getting back into it now."

The recovery for his surgery had left Andrew out of action for longer than he had hoped, which meant putting a stop to his travels between the UK and Dubai for work.

He added: "Basically, I had a gland removed out of my chest, so just got that done.

"I thought it would be a lot quicker recovery, but six weeks was long.

"It is what it is."

Luckily, Andrew has fully recovered and is back to working as much as he can as a qualified personal trainer.

He opened up about his routine leading up to Love Island, saying: "We've got a little regime here. So we'll get up in the morning and we'll do a HIIT training session.

"We'll have breakfast, lunch, tan, and play some games.

"We've been given lots of little videos to make. Keeps us busy!"

Weight training, dinner and a movie finish off the day, with Andrew promising to make an appearance in the villa gym in order to "get back in shape".

He said: "You'll be seeing me at the gym in the villa definitely.

"I couldn't train for a little while just before I came in actually, five or six weeks, so I need to get back in shape quick.

"I'll be in the villa gym for sure."

The 27 year old has already found himself caught up in the midst of a Love Island love triangle with his partner Tasha and fishmonger Luca Bish.

Speaking in the Beach Hut, Tasha reveals: “Andrew is giving me good vibes and good energy. But Luca seems very sweet.”

And it appears that Luca may be feeling the same way.

He said during a confessional visit to the Beach Hut: “I got a really good vibe off her. I think there could be something there.”

Uh-oh, Andrew.
