The 2022 season of Love Island may be winding down but Love Island 2022 still has some surprises, and we got a whole bunch of them with the arrival of new bombshells.


Four new arrvals in the villa have shaken things up, but they do not have long to make an impression on viewers as the show is set to end on Monday, August 1st - so they will need to work fast.

One of those new arrivals is Lacey Edwards and she joined alongside Jamie Allen, Nathalia Campos and Reece Ford.

Here is all you need to know about Lacey Edwards.

Why is Lacey Edwards going into Love Island?

Lacey Edwards told ITV before entering the villa: "I’ve been dancing all over the world since I was 18 when I moved to France, I recently came to one of the ends of my contracts in France and I was like I am really ready to meet someone, and my friends were like, 'Why haven’t you applied for Love Island before? You’re literally perfect for it.'"

On what she can bring to the villa, Lacey added: “Being a dancer you always have to fight for the role, or fight for the job and you have to believe in yourself, you need confidence.

"I am literally just going to bring all of that into the villa. I am bringing all my confidence, all my chat and I might do the splits occasionally to get some attention…"

Watch out, Danica!

Who does Lacey Edwards have her eye on?

Lacey has yet to reveal who she is interested in getting to know, but she knows how to impress.

"I would just talk to someone, I’ve got really, really good chat and they would be able to see my personality through that," revealed Lacey. "I might show them my party trick, we will have to see about that."

The professional dancer also knows what she wants and isn't afraid to get it.

"I am definitely competitive, probably too much even at mini golf. I’ve grown up at auditions with a thousand girls competing for five places and if you don’t want it and you’re not competitive, there’s no point showing up.

"I feel like it’s the same with guys within this context, we’ve all gone in to find someone and just because I am coming in later does not mean that I am not going to give it my all. There’s no problem with stepping on toes, I am a dancer, I can avoid them…"
