Love Island 2020 contestant Mike Boateng has revealed he has 'saved a lot of relationships' during his time working as a first responder for Manchester Police.

The hunk, 24, denied ever saving a life during his time with the force, but said his job was sometimes 'basically like marriage counselling' during an interview with MailOnline.

He added that he had been into couples' houses to tell them 'how to run their lives' - a job he admitted was 'weird'.

'I'll go in and they've been married for 25 years and be there like, "you shouldn't be doing that, you should show her more respect, look at the kids",' he said. 'It's literally just managing people.'  

Mike was a third responder for the Manchester arena bombing in May 2017 - arriving three days after the devastating event - but denied being 'a real life hero'.

And he revealed his bosses in the force 'have left the door open' for his return after his appearance on the ITV show.

'At the same time, I know that other opportunities come up after the show, so we’ll just wait and see.'

Mike plans to use his experience in helping rowing couples reconcile when he arrives in the South African villa.

He said he will 'be neutral' and 'definitely won't pick sides' in an effort to get along with the other islanders.

'I always do what I feel is right and I always weigh up the options and see what's going on,' he said. 

His brother Samuel was one of Lord Sugar's candidates in the 2016 series of The Apprentice, but Mike denied there being any competition.

He boasted: 'There’s not really rivalry because I think I’m better than him anyway. He might disagree, but that’s up for debate. I think I’ll do better than him anyway.'
