Love Island contestant ‘confirmed’ as ripped Leeds dentist and fitness fanatic

A ripped dentist and fitness fanatic has appeared to ‘confirm’ he’s headed for the Love Island villa later this year.

Hunk Zack Chugg is a second-year dental student at the University of Leeds, and it’s clear to see that he’s absolutely ripped.

Sporting an impressive six-pack, the veritable Adonis regularly strips down for his 7,000 Instagram followers, with whom he has been sharing his fitness journey.

The 21-year-old underwent a staggering weight loss programme, and shares advice and tips on fitness, weight loss and skin care.

He said the followers "naturally poured in" after starting up his page, and he now runs a successful TikTok account too.

But Zack might be about to become more of a household name after he posted a cryptic clip to his social media pages last week.

Topless with just a towel tied around his waist, Zack could be seen in a chic bathroom as he bent to wash his face.

He added the caption: "Am I going on Love Island this year?"

And then he shared a series of messages he’d exchanged with the ITV Studio Casting account, with him being asked if he "might be interested" in appearing in the hit ITV2 series.

"This is something I’m definitely interested in!" Zack had replied.

He later shared an email screenshot of an online audition confirmation, adding: "You will have to wait and see."

And he has since confirmed to the Yorkshire Evening Post that his application was successful and that he’ll be jetting off to the Spanish island in late June.

He told the publication: "I released a post about men’s skincare routines and then got a direct message on Instagram from an ITV casting agent.

"I think they are really fascinated by what I do and I don’t know if they’ve met someone who does the sort of thing [I] do yet."

He added that they were “amazed” by his dentistry skills and his weight loss journey.

"I was quite fat before university started, [and] I realised I [couldn’t] go to uni looking like I did,” he elaborated. Since losing weight, Zack said his dating standards have heightened.

Zack doesn’t intend to become a "standard NHS dentist," and instead says he wants to work with celebrity clients or in cosmetic dentistry.

And as a keen fan of the show, he’s chuffed to be part of the line-up.

"My younger self was so proud," he said.

In the influencer world, Zack has combined his fitness inspo with snaps relating to his dentistry education – and he definitely scrubs up well – pun definitely intended.

His cropped dark hair falls into curls above his forehead and is shaved at the side.

And his impressive biceps are on proud display in the sizzling snap.
