But unlucky-in-love Alex needs to take a leaf out of George’s book as he’s struggled to win over the girls in the villa.

Last night we saw him fail to pair up with Megan Barton Hanson who chose Eyal Booker in the first recoupling last night.

The 27-year-old A&E doctor has not yet revealed his famous ancestor on the show, who was elected Liberal MP for Caernarvon at the same age.

But Alex is clearly proud of his heritage, posting a picture of a David Lloyd George exhibit to social media.
