Discussing why he's doing the show, he said: "I’ve never been in a relationship. I thought, ‘If Love Island can’t find me a relationship then no one can’."
Toby signed for semi pro club Hashtag United last year, but this summer is shaping up a little differently for him.
Talking about team, he revealed: "I’ve played football since I was about six, but it’s really come into a new light for the past year since I joined a team called Hashtag United.
"They’re very social media focused. Everything is on YouTube, Instagram and Twitter. Playing with them has really made me fall in love with the game again."
Asked how his friends and family would describe him, he said: "Optimistic. I always see the bright side in the worst situations. I’m a fun guy when I go on a night out. Responsible guy as well."
Producers have already sighted up multi-lingual lawyer Sharon Gaffka,London 'ladies man' Aaron Francis, disabled cricketer Hugo Hammond and former glamour model Shannon Singh.
There is also water engineer Jake Cornish,fashion blogger Kaz Kamwi and labourer Brad McClelland.
