The semi-professional footballer - who plays for Lewes FC - has been on a steep learning curve ever since he set foot in the villa. And despite their ups and downs FC 24 Coins, he has managed to make Scottish model Ella Thomas - who he was coupled up with by the public in episode one - his first ever girlfriend!
Despite initially forgetting that they had met before, Ty and Ella’s tumultuous relationship has been a talking point of the season, as his head has been turned by several of the girls to walk through the doors of the villa - and when Ella brought back Ouzy See from Casa Amor, Tyrique vowed to never give her a second chance.
However, the pair did eventually reignite their romance, and while it hasn’t always been easy, they only have eyes for each other. Read on for everything you need to know about Tyrique Hyde, including who his professional athlete father is.
The 24-year-old semi professional footballer plays for Lewes FC in central midfield, after leaving Dartford FC in 2022. Speaking about the one thing hed want his new fellow islanders to know about him, Tyrique said: "That I’m deaf in my right ear. I’ve got a tattoo next to my left one that symbolises strength and power in my good one."
Another surprise fact that many people may not know about the islander is that hes also one of the best friends of season 7 islander Toby Aromolaran, who made it to the final with Chloe Burrows. Tyrique revealed that the pair grew up together and were in the same class at school, but it remains to be seen whether or not Toby has imparted any Love Island wisdom to his best friend.
Prior to entering the villa, Tyrique was already turning on the charisma, and admitted: "I’ll bring vibes, confidence, good energy and honesty. I don’t sit on the fence, if I have an opinion I will speak up cheap EAFC 24 Coins. I’m also not afraid to go after what I want."
