Michael Griffiths set pulses racing during his time in the Love Island villa and he's now using his new found sex symbol status to launch a new career.
The 27 year old is following in the footsteps of Hollyoaks actor Jake Quickenden, Geordie Shore's Gaz Beadle and The Only Way Is Essex star Dan Osborne by joining stripping group The Dreamboys.
Former firefighter Michael will join The Dreamboys on a nationwide tour in 2020, but first will take to the judging panel to find the next stripping star in a competition called The XXX Factor.
The XXX Factor will see Michael and other celebrity guest judges cast their eyes on an array of hunky hopefuls as they dance and grind their way to stripping success.
Members of the public are also being given the chance to scream for their favourite and have their say on who should join the iconic male group at the auditions. Tickets for The XXX Factor are priced at £60 and available now.
Speaking about his raunchy new role, Michael said: "I’m absolutely buzzing to be joining The Dreamboys as a part of their legendary tour show.
"I’m always up for a challenge and can’t wait to be put through my paces to learn the epic routines and show off my dance moves.

"Whilst Love Island may have seen me wearing nothing but swim trunks, baring my torso in front of a huge crowd is a daunting prospect! There’s definitely some nervous energy, but I know that once those lights go down, I’ll be in the zone and ready to go.
"The boys from the tour are a great bunch of lads and are helping me to get performance perfect.

"I can’t wait to meet everyone as we tour the UK but getting to be a part of the XXX-Factor judging panel this December as we hunt out some of the best talent in the country is going to be so much fun!
"I know how nervous the guys will be, so I don’t think I’ll be giving them any Simon Cowell level critique, I’m more of a Louis Walsh!
"I’m hoping I’ll pick up some tips from these guys to help me on the tour too. Either way, it’s going to be an epic night and I can’t wait for the crowd to get behind all the guys auditioning."
Michael's new job comes amid reports he is dating a mystery woman he met on the set of Ex On The Beach.
He told The Sun Online: "All will be revealed when the show is aired in January, but I made some really close friends in there and formed a relationship that’s really decent.
"I’m not IN a relationship but there could potentially be one in time. It’s a mystery woman – she’s in the limelight.
"I’m pretty sure everyone knows who it is already. We spend more time together now. But there is definitely potential for something to progress."
