Love Island Australia 2022 is about to get a whole lot cheekier with the news that Married at First Sight Australia 2022’s Al Perkins is entering the villa as a bomb.
In an official statement from Channel 9, Australia’s most loveable larrikin (and absolute fan-favourite) will be sporting some sexy trunks as he attempts to make heads turn in Mallorca.
From his infamous shoeys, adorable smile and infectious laugh, Al will undoubtedly be an absolute godsend to the series, while once again capturing the hearts of people around the country.
“Going on MAFS was one of the best experiences of my life, and everyone knows I was pretty unlucky in finding love,” he said in an official statement.
“So when this opportunity came up, I thought why not have not have another crack and hopefully find love the second time around.”
Al also said it was a “once in a lifetime opportunity to go over to Spain” while listing off things we can all relate to!
“The sun, meeting beautiful people and just having a great time – I can’t wait,” he added.

“I was watching him on MAFS, and straightaway when I saw him, I thought, ‘Why is he not on Love Island?’ because he had never had a girlfriend when he got married,” the former Bachelorette admitted. “So I think it’s really good for him.”
Many reality shows have seen their contestants’ egos inflate just a ‘lil with the newfound fame; however, Sophie says this isn’t the case for TV groom Al.
“He’s just a very sweet, innocent guy. He hasn’t got a bad bone in his body,” she admitted.
Even though she noted he “sometimes speaks without thinking”, the Love Island mainstay said the new addition is “hilarious”.
Al is not the only famous face to be joining the cast.
