The January blues are cured babe. Clear your schedules and get ready for your group chat to go off, because Love Island is back. Our fave show returns for the winter series, and ITV has revealed the first 11 contestants.
We’ve done a bit of detective work to find out more about the cast members (just call us Wagatha Christie). Get scrolling to find out who is going to be gracing our screens for the next six weeks…
Winter Love Island cast
The 22-year-old customer service advisor from London competed for the title of Miss Ghana UK in 2016. She describes her perfect partner as someone who is rugged, manly, trustworthy and loyal.
Siânnise is 25 and from Bristol. She’s a beauty consultant who is known to her girls as ‘Princess Jasmine’. Her type on paper is someone tall, dark and handsome. Basically, her own Aladdin.
Mike is a police officer and ex-professional footballer. What more could we ask for? He describes himself as ‘confident, charming and charismatic’ and his celebrity crushes are Bey and RiRi.
If you think you recognise her, you probably do. Sophie is the younger sister of Rochelle Humes. The 21-year-old medical PA is an Essex girl who is looking for someone who doesn’t take themselves too seriously.
Connor is a 25-year-old coffee bean salesman from Brighton (apparently that’s a real job?). He is on a mission to find an outgoing girl that will get on with his mates. He has a huge celeb crush on Maya Jama.
Shaughna works in her local council as a Democratic Services Administrator. The 25-year-old describes herself as ‘funny, chatty and clever’. She’s looking for a man who’s smart and dresses nice.
Nas describes himself as ‘very different to guys that have been on the show before’. He’s 23 and a sports-science graduate, turned builder. He’s looking for a cute, funny girl that can match his upbeat attitude.
Scottish Islander, Paige, is a 22-year-old singer who you may recognise from BGT 2012. She also used to date Lewis Capaldi as a teenager. Paige is looking for a guy who is tall, dark and handsome. Her number one turn off is cheesy chat up lines. (we 100% agree!).
Ollie’s official job is being heir to his parents’ estate. The 23-year-old land owner refers to himself as an ‘attention-seeking alpha male’. His best chat up line is to tell girls that he owns Polzeath beach in Cornwall.
Callum is 23 and hails from Manchester. He describes himself as a ‘cheeky chappy’ and ‘down to earth’. He’s on the lookout for a girl with dark hair, tanned skin and a signature red lip (basically he wants to date Megan Fox).
Eve & Jess Gale
Twinning is winning. Eve and Jess Gale are 20-year-old identical twins. They both work as VIP hostesses alongside university. Jess is looking for a guy who is on the same intelligence level as her and confident, but not cocky. Eve likes an alpha male who is ‘switched on’. Both of them say their celeb crush is Anthony Joshua.
