Eyal Booker fromLove Island is the gorgeous, curly-haired guy who captivated us with his relaxed, calm vibes and his refreshingly honest take on life during his time in reality TV’s most talked-about programme. His romance with Megan Barton-Hanson was compelling and we were glued to the screen as the gorgeous pair got to know each other. But, after a whirlwind romance, Megan moved on to Wez Nelson. After the model left the villa, we caught up with him about the show, and what he REALLY thinks of HELLO!'s EXCLUSIVE photos of Megan's £25,000 surgery makeover.
Eyal and Megan were coupled up in the famous villa
When asked if he'd seen Megan's before and after shots, he told us: "I've seen the pictures of course, and do you know what, it’s a really difficult one ... I feel like if someone is insecure within themselves, they should be able to go out and do what they want to do to change that. And I respect what she’s gone and done. If it's made her more secure in her body, then that shouldn’t be something that people are attacking." Although Eyal admits seeing the pictures "was a bit of a shock" he believes "she looks great for it," and that hersurgery is "nothing new to what we’ve seen before."
The 22-year-old reflected on his time in the Island, revealing he has zero regrets about his romance with Megan: "I honestly don’t live with regret. When I was in a couple with Megan, I was respectful. I would like to have got to know Ellie sooner but I made sure that I stayed away from her as I was already in a couple at that point."
Speaking about Georgia Steele – who has recently been left heartbroken over Josh Denzel re-coupling with Kazimir Crossley - Eyal explained: "Georgia had an incredible vibe. She was one of the most genuine girls in there. A lot of fun!" He also reflected on how he came across on camera, telling us: "The girls I was with were not really that fun and there is a fun side to me that viewers didn't get to see."
