Meet the confirmed girls
Yewande is aged 23 and is from Dublin, Ireland. She’s got the looks and the brains, having studied to be a scientist.
She is on a mission to show reality stars can have beauty and intelligence. She compares herself to last years cast Dr Alex and Camilla Thurlow and believes there are loads of intelligent reality stars.
She says “I can’t imagine stealing someone’s man in there, but never say never,” she says. Interesting.. we’ll see if she’s a girlie girl or a man stealer.
Lucie is aged 21 and is from Newquay Cornwall, which is fitting as her job is a surfer. She has already had some links to Love Island, having previously dated Charlie Frederick, last years Love Island contestant. She has also come close to dating Joey Essex, now counting him as one of her friends.
She’s looking for someone who can hold her attention as she’s admitted to getting bored easily, having never had a relationship last longer then 6 months. Her type is blondes who are just as into sports as she is.
She’s confessed she’s not a girlie girl and isn’t afraid to steal a man … watch your backs everyone.
Amber is aged 21 and from Newcastle. She’s a beautician and model. She’s already for links to the showbiz world, counting Ellie Brown, Adam Collard and Kyle from Geordie Shore as pals.
She’s looking for someone with a good sense of humour “I want someone who is funny and that I can have fun with and doesn’t take themselves too seriously because I am daft,” says the 21-year-old.
Amy is 26 years old and from Worthing, Sussex. She is a Cabin Crew manager which has opened her eyes to all sorts of situations. She’s ready to find the one and hopes Love Island will be the place to find it.
She’s looking for someone to travel the world with, have fun with and someone who can love her as much as she’ll love them…. Sweeeetttt.
Anna is 28 years old and from London. She has a masters in Pharmacy and her job of course is a pharmacist.
She has been dubbed the ‘British Kim Kardashian’ but stresses she has brains as well as beauty.
“I studied hard and I’ve got my masters,” the says. “I think I’m different to anyone who has been on the show before. I have the whole glam look, I’m fun but at the same time I feel like I have more to me than that.”
She’s looking for someone tall, dark and handsome, just like her celebrity crush Tom Hardy. We think she’ll be in luck with the Love Island line up we’ve seen!
Meet the confirmed boys
Anton is 24 and from Scotland. He owns a gym so it’s no wonder his instagram is filled with shirtless selfies.
He’s admitted to having cheated on every single one of his girlfriends and says whoever he couples up with will have to keep his attention to keep his ‘wondering eye’ from going astray.
“My last relationship, I actually got caught cheating for the first time in my life and it changed everything for me. I saw how much it hurt her and what it did to her. So, for me going to into Love Island, it’s going to be the biggest test of my life.”
Tommy is 20 years old and from Manchester. He’s a boxer just like his brother Tyson Fury, former heavyweight champion.
He states he won’t settle until he finds the right person for him,“I want to end up with a girl where I look at her every morning and think ‘You are gorgeous, I’m so lucky,’” he said.
“If a thousand girls walked past, I don’t want to look at one of them. I probably won’t settle down until I find that.”
Joe is aged 22 and from South-East London. He is a catering company owner so will sure be the designated chief in the villa.
Joe rates himself an 8.5 out of 10 and has been compared to Eyal with him seeking a “connection” in the villa.
“For me, it’s just more how we click, if she is fun, outgoing and doesn’t take herself too seriously and is open to talk about things,” he says. “Obviously initial attraction is key but the connection is the main go-to.”
Michael is 27 and from Liverpool. Any girl would be lucky to couple up with this fireman, who considers himself a hero and jokes “Who doesn’t want their own firefighter?”
He’s heading into the villa looking for someone with brains and a peachy bum, “I need somebody I can get on with, and have a conversation with and not get lost in translation. And she’s got to have a nice bum.
Sherif is 20 years old and from London. He’s sure to get the girls hearts racing with his cooking skills and semi-pro rugby background.
Sherif is looking for someone with a peachy bum who can make him laugh, even if hearing his laugh may send girls running for the hills
“I feel that I make people laugh so I want a girl that makes me laugh, even if that’s just from being herself and not trying to be funny,” he says. “My actual laugh, my hysterical laugh is pretty ugly.
Callum is 28 and from South Wales. He’s got brains as well as abs, working as an aircrafy engineer.. impressive.
He’s looking for a blonde in the villa and is serious about settling down. “I’m 28 now so time is ticking, I don’t want to be left on the shelf. The whole experience is going to be great and if I meet someone, that’s what I’m here for.”
Curtis is 23 years old and from Shropshire. You may recognise him from dancing with the stars, Ireland or the brother of AJ Pritchard who himself is a professional dancer on Strictly come dancing.
With his dancing background he’s sure to bring some rhythm to the villa and turn up the heat. He isn’t much of a dater, with his ex being his dancing partner Emily Barker who he was with for two years.
“I have lived a very sheltered life because of my dancing, I’ve not done a lot of going out partying, going on dates because I haven’t had time to,” he says. “Being truthful I’ve probably been on less than ten dates, maybe five dates. I have never met anyone online, I’ve never used a dating app.”
