Love Island Dami's dating history, disgusting habit and family's warning over behaviour

In just one explosive episode of Love Island, Dami Hope has gone from hero to villain.

The Irish hearththrob was seen by many as a potential winner of the series - but the senior microbilogist has shocked the nation by cracking on with another girl.

Viewers were hoping that Dami would remain faithful to Indiyah Polack, who has kept a respectable distance from the lads in Casa Amor.

But she is unaware that the man she is coupled up with his grafting bombshell Summer Botwe and shared a cheeky kiss with her on the balcony outside of a challenge.

This in turn led to a heated clash with Luca Bish - with Dami claiming the fish seller was 'fake' and encouraging the other lads to play away from home so he could win.

Few people expected this side of Dami to emerge, but some of his comments before going into the villa alluded to this sort of behaviour.

When asked why now was the time for Love Island, he said: "This year I was kind of being more open to new things and I think actually that's why I put myself out there to get some new experiences.

"Love Island is a different experience, I will be talking to different girls, it might not go well with some, might go well with others, so it's a fun experience."

So we know Dami was willing to talk to a variety of girls, as has been demonstrated during Monday night's episode, as well as him moving very swiftly on from Amber Beckford.

But his family did give a warning as to what he would be like in the villa - and they are well aware he is a bit of a troublemaker.

When asked how his loved ones would describe him, Dami said: "They'd say I’m funny, I'm a joker, they'd probably say I cause trouble and I like a lot of girls.

"My family, we just insult each other, I always have a comeback for everything."

Dami also opened up on his dating history, something we haven't heard much about during his time in the villa.

Before coming on Love Island, the Dublin lad had been single for four years so was desperate to find the woman of his dreams - particularly to please his mother.

"My mum keeps pestering me about having a wife and saying how at my age she was already pregnant with me," he explained. "I'm actually enthusiastic to see if I can find someone.

"I like going on dates, more so for the past few years. I don't put all my eggs in one basket and that way I get the chance to meet people that I might be better with."

When summing up his previous relationships he said his dating history was "very diverse", adding: "I've dated different people from different cultures. I'm very open minded about it."

"There's a lot of girls and some of them are pretty good catches but there's just something that is not there for me."

Dami also spoke about what he is like as a boyfriend - and whether he falls in love quickly or is a slow burner.

"In the beginning stages I can get carried away, but then there's always something that happens and I reel myself back in, like I come back to reality," he admitted.

"When I'm actually in a relationship, I think it's a star sign thing, I'm an Aries but I'm very passionate - I always used to put that person first.

"If they had something they wanted to door something they were passionate about, I'd make sure that even if it's something I'm not talented at I'd get talented at it just so it helps them.

"I'm really good at being in a team and actually looking after each other."

Ironically, one thing that Dami said gives him the 'ick' with girls is bad hygiene, which comes as a shock as some Love Island fans have picked up on his own habit.

"Bad hygiene or girls that talk about money too much," he explained before entering the villa.

"I like material things myself but it can get too much. I like girls that have initiative to be like, 'No I'll get this.' Even just showing me that, I'll still pay."

During the start of his time in the villa, Dami was speaking to Luca about their worst habits, with the fishy customer confessing his has talking too much.

While Dami admitted: "I was gonna say, that is it! It's like my farts man, it doesn't stop."

This is something we witnessed recently when the lads were all eating in the kitchen and Dami stunned everyone by loudly breaking wind.

When Jay asked if Dami had 's***t himself, the microbiologist replied: "No, it was just a fart man."

In that same conversation with Luca, the lads both said they enjoy eating bogies, but Dami took things to a whole new level by confessing he ate a girl he was seeing's booger.

"I picked a girl's nose before I tried it out," he told a shocked Luca. "I picked it and she didn't think that I'd do it."

The dynamic between Luca and Dami has drastically changed after their blazing row on Monday night's episode.

Dami headed up to the terrace for a private chat with new girl Summer and they shared a passionate kiss in secret.

Back downstairs, Dami snapped when Luca suggested that he should get in bed with his new love interest and tried to get Jacques to agree.

Dami warned Luca: "Yeah, stop egging other people on man. What’s wrong with you? Just be real for once."

Furious Luca then demanded an explanation as to what he meant and claimed Dami was only angry because he 'f***ed up' by kissing someone else.

The row escalated when Dami accused Luca of being 'fake' and claimed he was holding Gemma Owen 'hostage'.

Dami responded: "I just told you how I feel about Indiyah, but at the end of the day you're trying to tell me I've done something wrong."

The boys managed to call a truce, but what will happen when Indiyah finds out what he's been doing while she's away.
