THE beautician of Love Island hunk Liam Reardon has said “I fancy him rotten” and wants to couple up despite being 32 years older than him.
Jane O’Shea, owner of The Beauty Box in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales, has described the star as “gorgeous”.
Liam, 21, regularly visits the salon, where he gets his eyebrows waxed and shaped every fortnight.
The 53-year-old beautician said: “To be honest, we all fancy him rotten.
“He’s a beautiful man and none of us can take our eyes off him when he comes in.
“Even though I’m 32 years older than him, I think he’s gorgeous and I really fancy him.”
Jane insisted that despite his screen image he is actually “a gentleman”.
She said: “The show seems to be setting him up as a ladies’ man, but nothing could be further from the truth.
“He’s not a player at all. He’s not the kind of lad you see with a different woman on his arm every night.
“In fact he’s only ever had one serious girlfriend.”
I’ve known him since before he could walk and talk. He’s a lovely boy
Jane said she has known Liam since he was a child – and he is “loved by everyone” in his hometown.
“I guarantee you won’t find anyone round here with a bad word to say about him. He’s an absolute gent.
“I’ve known him since before he could walk and talk.
“He’s a lovely boy.”
She said Liam always tips “two or three quid” on top of his £4.50 eyebrows charge.
Jane added: “Me and the girls are firmly on Team Millie. We think they make a great couple.”
Liam and Millie were one of the strongest couples in the villa – but beautiful blonde Lillie has proven to be a massive test for the Welshman.
Tonight, fans were left livid tonight as Liam laughed as his fling with Lillie was exposed and Millie shouted “are you f***ing joking?”
The Welshman returned to the main villa alone, but he has a lot of explaining to do after his week away at Casa Amor.
Asked by host Laura Whitmore if she thought Liam had been faithful, nervous Millie replied: “I don’t know. I can’t say yes. I hope he has.”
But unfortunately for Millie there’s heartbreak ahead as she discovers what Liam’s really been up to.
He grew close to Lillie this week and even shared a bed and multiple kisses.
But something drew back to his Millie Moo – although he kept tight-lipped about what he’d been up to and instead said the time apart had made him realise his true feelings.

Unfortunately for Liam, Lillie entered and revealed all.
Millie shouted: “Are you f***ing joking? You’ve been kissing outside of the challenge? It’s f***ing disgusting.”
Defensive Liam said: “She said to give her a chance so I could compare them both. Obviously, I arrived on my own for a reason.”
