Love Island star Dr Alex George knows only too well what it’s like to live in the bubble of the reality show’s famous villa, having been there and done it back in 2018.

And now the 30-year-old has offered his words of wisdom to this year’s stars, telling them to enjoy it and stay true to themselves all the time the cameras are rolling.

Speaking exclusively to OK! about what advice he’d give the new contestants ahead of their TV debut, Alex said: “I think just enjoy it, don't worry too much and be yourself.”

He continued: “Everyone kind of says try to be yourself and make the most of what is an amazing opportunity.”

The NHS doctor, who was one of the standout stars of the fourth series of the popular programme, went on to say that although many people feel the need to try to impress, it’s important not to change your personality in any way.

Alex explained: “People sometimes feel like they need to force themselves to lift their personality or be louder, but I think just go in and enjoy the experience.”

He added: “[So you have to] be yourself. I don't think you can try and stay there or whatever. It's just going in and having fun. It's an amazing experience.”

Alex, who recently went public with his relationship with new girlfriend Ellie Hecht, also opened up about his own experience on the show and why he wouldn’t change a thing.

Looking back at his time in the villa alongside the likes of Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham, he recalled: “I really enjoyed it. I don’t think I have any regrets.”

He added: “I was stressed out about being on camera, so I probably could have relaxed a bit more.”

“But generally I had a pretty good time. I think it was a unique experience.”

And he’s very much looking forward to tuning in when the series returns to our screens tonight at 9pm.

Asked if he’ll be watching, Alex answered: “I definitely will when I’ve got time in the evenings.”

“It’s easy escapism, isn’t it? I’m excited to see what this series brings.”
