Dr Alex from Love Island buys FOUR cottages in Wales and offers to house Ukrainian family fleeing war
LOVE Island star Dr Alex George has bought FOUR cottages in Wales in hopes of turning them into quirky holiday homes.
The reality TV favorite – who shot to fame on the ITV2 dating show – donated the buildings to Ukrainian families fleeing war.
Dr Alex, 31, took to his Instagram to reveal the exciting news that he had purchased the four houses, which are all on the same plot.
“Today is the big day,” he wrote on Sunday alongside a photo of himself standing outside the front door of one of the houses, smiling broadly at the camera.
“I am delighted to announce that I have purchased 4 holiday homes in beautiful Pembrokeshire, Wales.
“I originally bought them for my passion for property and renovation, as well as to create relaxing spaces for families to spend their holidays and enjoy the Welsh countryside!
“With all the current devastation in Ukraine, I have decided that I would like one of the cottages to house a Ukrainian family for as long as they need it.
“My plan is to start renovations and get the properties back in good condition to house a family as soon as possible.”
Following his Instagram Stories, the star reiterated that he wants to house a family from Ukraine “as soon as possible”.
“I was shocked by what is happening in Ukraine and I want to support in any way I can,” Dr. Alex pointed out, linking fans to his YouTube.
Posting a video looking around the abandoned cottages, the star showed off the cozy spaces he hoped to “turn into vacation cottages”.
He toured the houses detailing how he hoped to “destroy” and “renovate” different parts of the buildings.
Fans immediately took to the comments sections of posts to gloat over Dr Alex’s “incredible” decision to help others.
“What an amazing thing to do,” exclaimed one fan, while a second chimed in, “Amazing! You chose well. You’re doing such an amazing thing too.”
It comes shortly after Alex signed up for celebrity dating app Raya after being dumped by his girlfriend for cheating.
The former Love Island star split from Ellie Hetch last month after a year of dating – with claims he was messaging other women.
A source said: “Alex wanted to get straight back into the dating game and has a profile on Raya.
“He uses a selfie he took in his car as his main profile picture and describes himself as an activist.”
The Sun first revealed how Alex’s girlfriend Ellie, who works as a lawyer’s clerk, was devastated to find out he had ‘sexted’ other women behind her back.
A number of these posts were shared with The Sun and showed Alex communicating with a number of different women during his relationship with Ellie.
