Rob Lipsett's sister has opened up about her little brother entering ITV's Love Island this evening.

Top model Roz Lipsett said that while viewers might want to see the 25-year-old fitness blogger hooking up with Camilla Thurlow, she believes that his dream woman is Montana Brown. 

The Miss Universe Ireland finalist (31) added that viewers shouldn't expect any saucy antics from the Rathgar native as he's a "good Catholic boy" who will be on his best behaviour on the show. 

"We're all very excited about it," she told Independent.ie.

"The producers actually asked him to go into the show at the very start but he was just too busy with work and had a trip planned to Ibiza. He just didn't realise the popularity of the show, just how big it was and then he saw how much fun it was and it was a good way to meet someone.

"Rob's a real relationship person. He's been single a few months and I think he's looking to date someone seriously. I would love him to date Montana. I absolutely love her because she's so fit. She looks after herself and she's also really funny. 

"I just think she seems like a really educated, nice girl and someone he would click with." 

She said that he's been single a few months since splitting with fellow fitness blogger Sarah Godfrey and is definitely not a player when it comes to the dating scene. 

He's also not a big boozer so don't expect to see him falling around the villa after one too many tipples. 

"He was telling me that they're actually really limited on alcohol. They're not allowed more than two drinks max every night. The producers want them to focus on looking good and finding love." 

One of Ireland's best-known fitness bloggers with over 261,000 followers on Instagram, Rob also has a successful fitness YouTube channel, with an impressive quarter of a million subscribers. 

He started his career in the fitness industry by creating a Facebook page to track his workouts and progress, before joining YouTube and Instagram in 2014. 

But he's not the only Irish face entering the show tonight, which is aired on ITV a day ahead of Ireland's 3e.  

Model Shannen Reilly McGrath, who's described as 'Dublin Barbie,' will be joining Rob and the 13 remaining contestants with hopes of making it to the final. 

Shannen (25) was a contestant in Miss Ireland 2014, and was announced as the new Cocoa Brown brand ambassador days before it was revealed that she would be entering the house. 

The Tallaght native is well-known in the Dublin modelling circle, and previously dated Big Brother star Bianca Gascoigne's ex CJ Meeks.
