Love Island’s Kai quit job as PE and science teacher just a few weeks ago to go on show.

LOVE Island’s Kai Fegan quit his job as a PE and science teacher just a few weeks before jetting off to join the show.

The 24-year-old from Manchester was chosen out of hundreds of thousands of applicants to join the winter version of the hit ITV2 show.

But before being able to join the other Islanders, he had to give up his job as a teacher.

It’s now been revealed that Kai actually quit his post just before the Christmas holiday break.

This was uncovered after one of his pupils told Love Island fans how he left their school to be on the show.

Commenting on an Instagram post about the new Islanders, a student of Kai’s wrote: “The second was my science teacher before he left a few weeks ago.”

Meanwhile, today Kai was the second Islander to be announced by ITV.

The buff rugby player then changed his social media profile to his Love Island snap and written: “I’m off to find love in the @loveisland villa. See you soon!”

And he could be hard to please after admitting he he has high standards.

Ahead of the show starting, he told ITV: “I’m single by choice.

“I’m looking for the right girl. I feel like I have quite high expectations.

“I don’t feel I should commit to someone unless I’m absolutely buzzing over them, because it’s not fair on them.”

Kai isn’t the first PE teacher to try their luck on the dating show.

Hugo Hammond traded the classrooms of the exclusive Blundell’s School in Devon for the luxury villa in the summer of 2021.

He proved a hit with viewers but struggled to find romance before he was sent packing as a single man following a string of unsuccessful partnerships.

However, he got his happy ending eventually, going public with GB triathlete girlfriend Molly Wilkins a year after his foray into reality TV.
