An eight week hotbed of high drama, heartbreak, make ups and break ups, Love Island is back…
Get to know the new islanders below!
29, Cabin Crew from Stirling, Scotland.
Laura is looking for on paper “A rugged, real man. And someone that knows what they want. Age isn’t a big deal at all. Some 22 year old guys are very mature and know what they want. My ex was 38 and had no idea what he wanted, so you can’t discriminate against age.”
23, Student and Construction Worker from Coventry.
Niall will be wooed by “being open and upfront. And just being happy and bubbly. My ideal date would be going to see animals at a safari park. That’s perfect – giraffes, elephants and a fit girl.”
21, Barmaid from East London.
Her most awkward date was when “a boy told the waitress who my dad was! We were sitting there and then he tapped the waitress on the shoulder and said ‘do you know who her dad is?’
This guy was really fit, a gorgeous rugby player. He told the waitress again when we walked out. That’s when he saw the other side to me. And I unfollowed him on Instagram.”
22, Model from London.
Eyal’s best qualities, according to himself are “My personality and then we can’t ignore the fact I have curly hair and people seem to like that.
I train pretty hard so I’ve got a decent body. Hopefully I’m just a funny person that people like.”
21, Model from Liverpool.
Hayley thinks her least likeable feature is “I have no filter, I say what I’m thinking at the time. Some people like it, some people don’t, but I am not going to not be me.
When I say things, I’m not horrible about it, I say what comes to my mind, but I usually deliver it in a nice way.
22, Personal Trainer and Gym Director from Newcastle
Adam is looking for “A dominant girl who keeps me on my toes but who is also genuine and down to earth and who I could take home to family if I wanted to.
I’ve been out with people before who are very materialistic and I can’t stand that.”
26, Retail Manager from Blackpool.
Kendall is looking for love, revealing “This time last year I was in a five year relationship, I was engaged, had a house, and I was all settled down ready to have children.
He proposed in the June and then three months later said he didn’t love me anymore. He left. Now, seven months down the line, I feel like I’m ready to move on and start dating.”
26, Stationary Sales Manager from Kent.
Jack is looking for love, but reveals he “Haven’t got a particular type but overall I want to find someone that I can have a real laugh with and who I actually want to spend time with.
I want to be relaxed with someone and have a laugh. I want to find a bond with someone.”
22, West End Performer from London.
Samira’s biggest turn off is “If they weren’t funny. Even if they’re beautiful but have no personality and are just dry, I physically can’t have a conversation.
I hate awkward silences. I’ve had that in the past where someone is stunning but has no personality and you just think ‘Oh my god.’ Another big turn off is spitting – it makes me feel physically sick.”
Dr. Alex George
27, A&E Doctor from Carmarthen, West Wales.
Dr Alex was previously in a long term relationship, “I had a girlfriend for four years. It ended three years ago. We weren’t friends afterwards but we’ve both moved on.
I think she would say I was very loyal and a good boyfriend to her, things didn’t work out, we were young and as we got older we just changed.”
20, Electrical and Nuclear Systems Design Engineer from Staffordshire.
Wes is “Looking for a partner, I’m looking for someone I can settle down with and tame my wild lifestyle. I am 20 years old but I’d say I am ahead of my age in terms of maturity and in terms of who I am and my mannerisms.
I don’t think I’d be childish in there. I consider myself a mature person so definitely looking for something serious.”
