Tyson Fury advised brother Tommy Fury against Love Island

Tyson Fury advised brother Tommy Fury against appearing on ‘Love Island’.
The 30-year-old boxer worried his 20-year-old brother might get "carried away being a reality TV star" rather than concentrate on his boxing, telling his sibling he might "mess up" his career if he joined the ITV2 dating show.
He said: "I thought, he’s a good looking lad. He might get carried away being a TV reality star rather than a fighting man – and it’s the last thing he needs to do when he’s trying to become a professional fighter.
"I said, ‘Nah, it won’t be a good idea that, you’ll mess up what you’re doing in your career. You’re on a roll, keep with boxing.’ "
But Tyson now thinks it was a "good move" of Tommy’s to join the show, because more people will want to see him box.
Speaking on ‘The Lateish Show With Mo Gilligan, he adds: "He’s got more of a following than if he would’ve had 40 professional fights.
"So I think it’s a very good move. People will want to come and see him fight."
Tommy is now the hot favourite to win the show alongside girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague after the pair got together on the programme.
The fighter attempted to couple up with Lucie Donlan at the start of the series, before Molly-Mae had entered the villa, but she chose Joe Garratt instead, only to then admit she had feelings for Tommy when it was too late.
After being dumped from the villa, Lucy recently said: "I would definitely want to go back into the villa! I was loving it. After Casa Amor, I got to know George [Rains] and that didn’t go how I thought it would and then I realised I liked Tommy [Fury].
"Although I liked him romantically, he was my best friend so it was nice to see your best friend so happy. At the same time, I was a bit gutted. I would love to go back in and just have fun with everyone."
