It's finally here! Meet our first batch of out (constantly changing) Love Islanders for season 5’s premier on June 3rd.
Let’s see who will be ‘cracking on’ in the Majorcan Villa first.
Yewande is not your typical model-heavy love islander. Biala has dabbled in social media influencing but the scientist from Dublin certainly believes she is a good fit for the hit reality ITV2 show.
‘Every time I say I am a scientist people are shocked’ She says ‘I think there are loads of intelligent people on reality television. Last year we had Dr Alex and the year before we had Camilla Thurlow in the Villa’

Lucy already has a claim to fame when it comes to Love Island. The 21-year-old surfer dated last year's booted contestant Charlie Frederick after he was dumped from the villa.
Now she is looking for a surfer dude to join her as she catches some waves on the Cornish coast.
‘I like the typical surfer look – blonde, long hair’ Says the 21-year-old. ‘I find sporty guys much more attractive compared to your average guy that just chills and goes on nights out.’
Job: Beauty Therapist
Amber’s dream guy happens to be Tom Hardy! ‘He’s just so nice and loves dogs as well, and I love dogs.’ She says.
Unfortunately, Mr Hardy wasn’t able to make it to the Majorcan Villa this year due to being a busy Hollywood actor so it looks like you’re going to have to make do with the line-up we already have I’m afraid Amber!
As a consolation ‘couple up’, Amber says she will settle with someone ‘Who is funny and that I can have fun with and doesn’t take themselves too seriously because I’m daft.’

Job: Cabin Crew Manager
Air Hostess Amy isn’t just looking for a fling in the ‘Mile High Club’. The 26-year-old is entering the villa in hopes to find ‘The One.’
‘I’m looking for someone travel the world with, have fun with and someone who is going to love me as much as I love them.’ She says.
She may be well known as ‘The British Kim Kardashian’ but Anna is keen to emphasise that she has brains as well as beauty.
‘I studied hard and got my masters’, the 28-year-old says ‘I think I’m different to anyone else 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.’

Job: Gym Owner
Stud, Anton, brutally admits he has never been loyal.
‘That’s a medical condition that I have, a wondering eye,’ The 24-year-old jokes.
The gym loving heartthrob explains ‘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 into Love Island, it’s going to be the biggest test of my life.’
Yes, it’s exactly what you’re thinking, Tommy is the younger brother of heavy-weight boxer Tyson Fury. But he’s entering the Love Island villa to make his own name for himself.
‘I don’t’ want to be labelled as his little brother’ He says, ‘I’m doing the best I can do in life and that’s all I’m setting out to achieve.’

Job: Catering Company Owner
Cheeky & charismatic Joe is looking for a ‘connection’ in the Majorcan villa. Rating himself as 8.5/10, the 22-year-old could come across as this years Eyal.
‘For me, it’s just more how click, if she is fun, outgoing and doesn’t take herself to seriously and is open to talk about things.’ The catering entrepreneur says, ‘Obviously initial attraction is key, but the connection is the main go-to’.
The 27-year-old wants to be somebody’s hero in the villa, ‘Who doesn’t want their own firefighter?’ he jokes.
The Liverpudlian is not just looking for a damsel in distress, he is looking for an intellectual in the villa. ‘I need someone I can get on with and have a nice conversation with and not get lost in translation. And she’s got to have a nice bum.’ Not asking for much there Michael!
Sherif refers to himself as ‘Outrages’ and so he is on the hunt for someone who can make him laugh. Even if his laugh can be quite off putting – Oh dear.
‘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.’ The 20-year-old says. ‘My actual laugh, my hysterical laugh is quite ugly.’
‘I laugh at anything which sometimes gets me into trouble. I can’t really take anything seriously,’ the funny man explains.

Party boy Callum is looking to settle down with whoever he couples up with, but he is particularly looking for a blonde bombshell.
‘Looks wise, I like blonde and petite girls,’ he says ‘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.’

Grab your dancing shoes ladies because Curtis is looking to sweep someone off their feet.
As the younger brother of Strictly star, AJ Pritchard, Curtis is also a professional dancer on the Irish version of Strictly, Dancing with the Stars.
His busy routine in the dancing profession has kept Curtis off the dating scene.
‘My ex-girlfriend was my dance partner. We danced with each other from when we were 12 until we were 14.’ He explains. Until early 2019, Curtis was dating fellow Dancing with the Stars pro, Emily Barker for two years.
