Love Island alum Liam Reardon has finally revealed why he chose to take part in Celebs Go Dating so soon after his split from Millie.

Liam revealed in September that he would be taking part in celebrity dating show, Celebs Go Dating. Many fans were concerned with how soon he made the decision following his break-up with Millie just two months prior.

The fan favourite couple caused a spike in rumours when fans noticed they were on holiday in the same place. After weeks of speculation, they finally confirmed their relationship, when they were spotted returning from a romantic holiday cruising around the Mediterranean.

In an interview on fellow islander Chloe Burrows podcast, Chloe vs The World, Liam revealed the real reason behind his decision to join the celebrity dating show.

He said: “It was a funny time, I went on there. I wasn’t looking for any….”

Chloe was quick to reassure him that she didn’t think anyone went on a show for that, before the 23-year-old spoke extremely honestly about his reason for joining the show.

“I went on it as it was a business opportunity, for the money.”

Liam explained that being offered a deal with that amount of money was a big deal to him as he was never in a position before where he would’ve even been considered for it.

He said: “If you had have asked me two years ago when I was on a building site, ‘You’re going to go on a show, do a couple of days and get paid this’, I would have been like ‘F****** hell!”

He admitted he knew there was going to be some controversial opinions on how soon he chose to do it after his split with Millie, ultimately deciding the opportunity was too good to turn down.

He said: “I knew it was a controversial thing because it was two months after me and Millie broke up. I wasn’t ready to be out dating, especially on TV, but you’ve got to take these opportunities.”
