LOVE Island’s Ovie Soko is a “smooth talker” who is a big hit with the ladies says former school mate Alexandra Cane.
The 2018 Islander took to Twitter to reveal she knows the 28-year-old basketball player – who will set pulses racing when he enters Casa Amor on tonight’s show.
She wrote: “I pray @OvieSoko does well on the show. If he is still the same as he was at school he will cleaaaaaan up, Good luck!”
Her former co-star Josh Denzel asked: “You went to school together”, and Alexandra, 27, replied: “Yeah he was in my year at school lmao my Whatsapp group going mental.”
Josh tweeted back: “Anna’s heads gonna be gone” alongside a crying with laughter emoji.
Alex replied: “And the rest!!!!! He’s a smoooooth talker lmao.”
Alex’s comments come after a first look at tonight’s episode saw Ovie be an immediate hit with Anna, 28, after meeting in Casa Amor.
Although Anna is currently coupled up with Jordan Hames, she questions “Jordan, who?” as she cracks on with the hunky basketball player.
Before Maura gets the text telling the girls they’re heading to Casa Amor, Anna visits the Beach Hut to voice her concerns.
“I am so nervous about Jordan. Is he going to crack on with other girls? Should I be doing the same?” she asks.

She later ponders: “I think Casa Amor is a huge test for me and Jordan, this is the time where I’m going to find out whether he does really like me because he’s not very vocal about it.”
But the pharmacists thought of model Jordan soon vanish once she sets eyes on Ovie, who enters Casa Amor alongside Dennon, Dan, Marvin, Stevie and George.
There’s an instant attraction from Anna, who excitedly reveals: “When the boys came out, the first thing that I thought was, ‘Woah!’ Ovie is so tall and handsome. Literally I was just starting at him.
