Akin is set to rub shoulders with our Chelsea favourites onscreen and it sounds like he is hoping to fill the shoes of former MIC star and the show's resident ladies man, Spencer Matthews.
That's a BIG statement, right?
According to The Sun, Akin admitted he and Spenny are quite alike. He claims he can be just as brutally honest as Spencer, and it sounds like they even share the same taste in women. No kidding.
Newcomer Akin has said: "I'm quite similar to Spencer in that it's not hard for me to vocalise what I'm feeling. I am definitely a playboy, but I'll try not to be on screen for the sake of my family."
He then added: "I've been single for the last eight years but I'm not a complete savage. The closest to my target is probably Louise Thompson - she's quite captivating."
Although Akin did point out that Louise is now off the market, she is currently dating her personal trainer Ryan Libbey. Fans were introduced to Ryan briefly during Made In Chelsea's South of France spinoff.
Speaking about Akin's addition to the cast, a spokesperson for MIC has said: "Made in Chelsea follows the relationships of a genuine group of friends and we are delighted that Akin, who is a close school friend of Alex, has joined the show."
We can't wait to see how he settles in!
Eagle-eyed fans may have noticed Akin made an appearance during a teaser for Made In Chelsea's next series at the end of its South of France finale. He appeared onscreen alongside pal Alex and sharing a screenshot of the moment to Instagram, Akin said: "Pinky finger just dangling on it's own like "hey boo" I suggest you all start watching @e4chelsea from October onwards. It's lit."
Ooh! We can't wait to see how he settles in...
