Chris Taylor has landed a role on 'Love Island: Aftersun'.

The 33-year-old star - who first appeared on the ITV2 dating show in 2019 before returning for this year's recent 'All Star' series - will appear as both a panelist on the spin-off show, and a presenter on 'The Morning After' podcast.

An insider told The Sun newspaper's TVBiz column: "Chris is 'Love Island' royalty and bosses were thrilled to add him to the presenting line-up for 'The Morning After' podcast, as well as the regular weekly 'Aftersun' panel."

It's said he'll be teaming up with Amy Hart, Sam Thompson and Indiyah Hart, with bosses impressed by the "amazing chemistry" he shares with his cast mates.

The source added: "He’ll be joining Amy Hart, who made her podcast debut earlier this year, as well as Sam Thompson and Indiyah Hart, who have juggled podcast and 'Aftersun' for a couple of series now.

"The four of them make a great team and they have amazing chemistry."

Chris is keeping "very busy", with the source noting he will be juggling his new roles along with his upcoming appearance on 'Celebs Go Dating'.

The insider said: "Chris also recently signed up to be in the new series of 'Celebs Go Dating', so he will be juggling all of these projects.

"He’s a very busy, in-demand boy.”

Chris previously revealed how he landed his a role in 'Barbie' after meeting Hollywood star Margot Robbie at the 'Birds of Prey' afterparty.

He told Cosmopolitan UK: "The lads [fellow Islanders Michael Griffiths and Jordan Hames] had gone to the 'Birds of Prey' premiere, and they came back saying how they'd met Margot on the red carpet, and Margot was gassed to see them.

"We were sat around talking about it when someone got a message saying Margot wanted us all to come to the afterparty. I was actually in bed, but I said I'd come, as how often do you get to met Margot Robbie?

"She's just really down to earth and cool. She's one of the nicest people I've ever met."

Speaking about his 'Barbie' audition, he added: "I was fully convinced it was a prank. These YouTubers, they're clever, they'll write full on contracts and do the prank video.

"But I pulled up at Warner Brothers and saw Ryan Gosling walked past my car and I thought 'this definitely isn't a prank'."
