Series Four of MTV’s “Ex on the Beach” has started and a Burnley singleton has joined the party in Portugal.

Amateur footballer Kieran Lee (23) has jetted in to meet up with the eight original singles for some fun in the sun.

One of those eight includes his ex-girlfriend Helen Briggs (22) and Kieran has promised frolics and fireworks in what has been dubbed the most explosive series to date.

He said: “All I can say is expect some huge kick-offs, and some unexpected arrivals and departures.”

Kieran, who works for his dad’s security business, is currently building up his fitness again with current club Barnoldswick Town FC, having previously played football for Nelson and Clitheroe.

“I would best describe myself as a nice guy when I want to be, but have a tendency to be an idiot,” he said.

“I think other people who know me would say the same and also say I’m vain. People who don’t know me have so many opinions on me, thinking they know me, yet they struggle to spell my name correctly.

“My romance with Helen is well and truly dead. I doubt me and any of the others will hook up, but who knows, never say never.”

The show, which airs at 10pm on a Tuesday on MTV, features eight single men and women who enjoy a summer holiday in paradise on the lookout for love.

However, exes are introduced to shake things up, leaving the chance for a rekindling of love or beachside revenge.

As well as Kieran and Helen, Nancy-May Turner, Naomi Hedman and Olivia Walsh complete the confirmed girls while Joe Delaney, Lewis Good, Youssef Hassane and Geordie Shore star Scott Timlin are the four original lads, also joined by Oliva’s ex James Moore from Blackpool.

Megan McKenna and Magaluf Weekender cast member Jordan Davies are also set to return to the programme having previously appeared during Series Three.
