Here’s everything you need to know.
Job: Model/ influencer
Why Love Island? “I’ve never been in love. What better place to have a tunnel vision and really finding your one? It’s the perfect atmosphere, you don’t have the outside world distractions. It looks like time moves fast in there in a good way – it’s like, do you actually like me or not? In the real world it’s so wishy-washy. With this, it’s just, you need to know.”
Why Love Island: “I have the worst luck, ever, with boys. Genuinely the worst ever. I always get dragged into the same circle of boys. So I was like, I need to go in another direction.”
Mary has her eye on Merthyr-born Liam Reardon, who is currently coupled up with Millie Court.
She said: “He’s just beautiful. He’s 6ft6 for a start, he seems really old-school, like a gentleman. And he’s basically the same age as me. He’s perfect. Other than that Teddy or Toby.
“I’m just going to get in there, see how Liam actually is feeling about Millie really and then reassess. I’m definitely not one to lay it on thick. I’ll just do a bit of flirting and see how it goes. That’s the whole aim isn’t it? If I go in there and I really like Liam I’ll have to step on Millie’s toes. If all the boys are coupled up you will be stepping on toes. If I could get away with not having a conversation I probably would as I hate confrontation, but if I need to I would.”
Job: International DJ
Why Love Island: “Real life dating has not been doing me any favours at all. I’ve had it.”
Why Love Island: “I’m clearly not very good at dating myself. I’m looking forward to the experience and the potential of finding someone I might not have met.”
Job: Brand owner/ influencer
Why Love Island: “I’m bored of hugging my pillow… it’s time to find a boyfriend. I feel like guys are coming in here to actually find a girlfriend as well.”
Clarisse has her eye on Teddy Soares, who is currently coupled with Faye Winter. The pair were recently saved from a dumping after being in the bottom two of a public vote with Aaron Francies and Lucinda Strafford.
She said: “He’s tall, confident and smooth. I don’t like horrible, cocky guys. If they are honest, that’s what I’d prefer.”
Job: Trainee accountant
From: South Shields
Why Love Island: “Usually I’m very loyal and I meet one guy, date him, date him only and then I end up being his girlfriend and it never works out. So I wanted to meet loads of different people that I wouldn’t normally come across and date them all essentially and then pick who I like from that bunch rather than sticking with one and rolling with that. So – variation!”
Lillie is interested in Jake Cornish, who recently asked Liberty Poole to officially be his girlfriend, and Liam Reardon.
She said: “I’ve definitely got my eye on Jake. He’s 100% the type of boy I would go for at home. It’s too good of a match not to just go for. Liam is definitely a dark horse for me, he’s like James Bond when you look at him, absolutely gorgeous. So he could be a very close second.”
Dale Mehmet, Medhy Malanda, Sam Jackson, Matthew MacNabb, Harry Young and Jack Barlow
Casa Amor line-up boys
Matthew, Sam, Medhy, Harry, Dale and Jack will be welcomed into the main villa.
Harry and Medhy both have their eye on Kaz, while Jack is interested in Chloe.
Here’s everything you need to know.
Job: Car salesman
Why Love Island: “I’ve been single for a year and a half and previously went through heartbreak and I’ve had a bit of fun as well. Obviously, COVID then hit so I haven’t had the chance to date. It was through Tinder that I signed up. Over the past year it was easier to start off an initial conversation online because pubs and clubs were closed. “
Harry has his eye on Kaz Kamwi, who is currently coupled up with new bombshell Tyler Cruickshank.
He said: “Kaz has always been in my top three. But once I’m in there and speaking with people, it could change. “
Job: American Football player/ model
From: Luton (originally from Belgium)
Why Love Island: “I’ve been single for 4 years and I love a good challenge. I love temptation so I thought why not?”
Medhy has his eye on Kaz and Millie, he said: “Kaz’s personality is fiery, she’s got energy, she’s funny and she’s got a beautiful smile and she’s a nice girl in general. And Millie seems like a nice girl and she’s obviously good looking as well.”
Job: Strategic Marketing Consultant
Why Love Island: “The main thing is the adventure, it seems like a really fun thing to do. “
Why Love Island: “It’s something different. I’m the kind of person who is super chilled. If I meet someone then that would be amazing. But I take everything as it comes. I’d like to meet someone I like and can move forward with, but I’ll just take it as it comes.”
From: East Sussex
Job: Racing driver and coach
Why Love Island: “I’ve been single for about two years now. To be honest, I’m ready to meet the one. Not necessarily get married at this age but just experience life with somebody and start a new adventure. We’ve all been deprived of a bit of adventure over the last year.”
Jack says Chloe Burrows, who is currently in a friendship couple with Hugo Hammond, is at the top of his list.
“I’m very much a connection type of person so I’ll be able to tell more in person,” he said. “From what I’ve seen and going off their energy, Chloe has been top of my list.
“It’s been nice to see her be herself and not care what anyone thinks. I think she’ll be a lot of fun.”
Job: Maintenance engineer
Why Love Island: “I’ve always watched the show. I’m definitely ready for a relationship, I’ve had my fun now.”
Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
