When Caroline Flack promises a Love Island bombshell, she really delivers bringing EIGHT potential new Love Islanders onto tonight’s show.
The four new boys and four new girls will compete in games designed to test their fit with life in the villa before the islanders get to choose two to stay: one boy and one girl.
There’s some familiar faces among the potentials too – nope, not Malin unfortunately – but viewers will recognise Adam Jukes and Chelsea Kelly who went up against Kady and Terry for a spot on the show earlier in the series (producers must really think they’ll be good!).
Check out the singletons hoping to earn a spot on the show:
