A footballer will soon be appearing in Love Island, it has been revealed.

Dennon Lewis who was previously signed for Watford FC's academy, will be putting his football career on hold to enter Love Island's second villa, Casa Amor - according to national news website The Sun.

The ITV reality show features a group of young men and women hoping to find love while living in a villa in Majorca. But they are always under the watchful gaze of the audience who have the power to decide who stays and goes. The winning couple will leave the island with £50,000.

The latest series began on June 3. But midway through each series, the men and women are separated and new recruits are brought into the two villas.

Dennon will be among the new recruits this year.

The 22-year-old began his football career at Watford FC's academy and signed a three-year professional deal at age 18.

But he failed to break into the first team and was loaned to Woking and Crawley Town.

He moved to Falkirk last July. In November, Dennon made headlines after calling out the racist abuse he received by the Scottish club's own fans.

He moved to Bromley in January this year, and earlier this month, he sign for National League South side Wealdstone FC.

Wealdstone boss Dean Brennan said at the time: "We are delighted Dennon [Lewis] has decided to join us, collectively as a club we have worked extremely hard to get this deal completed. Dennon is a young, exciting and talented player who has only ever played at a higher level.

"We have tracked Dennon for the past few years, he is the type of player that will have our fans on the edge of their seats."
