All about: Dale
Why have you signed up for Love Island?
It’s something different. I’m the kind of person who is super chilled. If I meet someone then that would be amazing. But I take everything as it comes. I’d like to meet someone I like and can move forward with, but I’ll just take it as it comes.
Tell us about your job.
I’m a barber. I’m actually self-taught. You need a lot of people to practise on and who don’t mind you giving them a bad haircut. There was a quite well-known barbers in Glasgow that I wanted to shadow and learn how these guys cut hair. I worked there for about two years and then I created my own studio and started up myself.
Who have you got your eye on in the villa?
I like Faye’s attitude and personality. I feel like we would get on.
Will you step on toes to get who you want?
It is what it is, isn’t it? I’m not a bad guy who is going to steal somebody’s girl. But if I want something then I’m going to pursue it. I would go about it all in the right way. Everybody would be well aware of what I was doing.
What do you think you will bring to the villa?
I feel like I’ll get on with everybody.
How would your friends/ family describe you?
I always want to see the best for everybody. I’ve got a small group of friends, my family is really tight. If somebody needs something, I’m always there to give them a hand.
What’s an interesting fact about you/ something people should know?
I think most people know I’m mixed race. My dad’s half Turkish, half Scottish. So I’ve got a wee bit of Turkish in me. My mum’s Scottish. And I’m a massive geek. I love sci-fi movies, I love gaming, I love watching anime. I have a full anime sleeve, that’s how much I like it, I’ve got it tattooed on my body. I really like Japanese culture.
