Now, following his new-found fame, he is competing in the new series of Dancing On Ice.
On taking part in the show he said: "I’m just going to do exactly what I did in the villa, which was to be myself and enjoy it for what it is. It’s an amazing experience and I’m really lucky and really grateful to be part of it."

Before entering the Love Island villa, Wes was an Electrical and Nuclear Systems Design Engineer.
