Who is Alex George?

Dr. Alex George is an A&E doctor, currently working at the University Hospital Lewisham in south-east London.

The 27-year-old, who is originally from Carmarthen, Wales, studied medicine at Exeter University.

According to the Daily Mail, Alex was able to secure the eight-ten weeks required by working on a zero hours contract.

The controversial contracts mean their bosses are under no obligation to give them work and the hospital are powerless to stop employees from pursuing other projects.

What has Alex said about Love Island?

It was recently revealed Love Island contestants would face a strict new ban on drunken sex and nudity and Alex has promised to abide by them.

He says: “You’re recorded 24 hours a day and I just want to make sure that I behave in the right way.

I absolutely love my job, I’ve worked since the age of 13 to get here and I go to work every day and I genuinely enjoy it.”

If he finds fame on the show, Alex believes he will still return to his successful career: “I would probably go back and do it part time, if I could mix it with TV work I would.

He added: “I think there’s probably room for a new TV doctor!”


When does Love Island series four start on ITV2?

Love Island series four will start Monday, June 4, at 9pm.

The show will air over eight weeks and among the cast are Cabin Crew member Laura Anderson, Barmaid Dani Dyer, and model Eyal Booker.
