Love Island star Mike Boateng’s brother has pointed out that while the islander is openly playing a game in the villa, the other contestants also have tactics of their own.

Police officer Mike has been branded a game player during his time on the ITV2 show, having moved onto Jess Gale after being dumped by Leanne Amaning and then jumping ship to Priscilla Anyabu during Casa Amor.

To make matters worse, dumped islanders Sophie Piper and Wallace Wilson both revealed that they think he is playing tactically to keep on the show.

But Mike’s brother Samuel has insisted that the other islanders also have strategies in place, they just so happen to be a lot safer and inconspicuous.

Speaking exclusively to, Samuel said: ‘Michael’s the only one openly playing Love Island. Everyone else is almost trying to play it safe. With Michael, he’s going all out to find love. He’s got six weeks and he’s pursuing whoever he can with all his might – and that’s what I love. I love to see it.

‘The others are staying in safe couples and not really going out there and doing the most. That’s not Love Island. You’ve got six weeks.’

Samuel continued: ‘Michael is a police officer has no time to find a girl, that’s the truth. He’s genuinely going in there to find somebody and with Priscilla that seems to be it right now.’

Giving examples of the other islanders also playing games, Samuel pointed out how Shaughna Phillips has all of a sudden revealed that she likes Luke Mabbott, and how Nas Majeed returned to the main villa with Eva Zapico after Casa Amor despite having a thing with Demi Jones.

‘Every individual you can brand as a game player,’ he added. ‘Even Finn for example. When he went to Casa Amor, I can promise you he was definitely tempted to look at other girls. The reason he didn’t was that he knew if he did that he’d get bashed. Everyone’s playing a game.

‘I don’t understand why people are only specifying Michael as playing a game. For me, I feel like people are putting a spotlight on Michael which isn’t necessary. In actual fact, he’s actually going in there looking for love. I think people need to realise there’s no time in there. It’s not real life, it’s a reality TV show.’

Time certainly is fleeting in the Love Island villa with the finale already on the horizon, and we all know the show can be so fickle.

Can we really blame Mike for game playing all things considered?

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
