Ellie Jones

Age: 22

Occupation: Customer service and office administrator

From: Kent

Ellie says: “I was seeing Jack Fincham on and off. We met in August 2016 and dated on and off for a while. We have always spoken because we got on so well.

“I actually spoke to him as a friend about two days before he went into the villa and had no idea he was going on the show! We weren’t in an official relationship but we spoke about it, would go on dates and kept trying to make it work but it wouldn’t.”

Age: 25

Occupation: Hairdresser

From: London

Grace says: “I washed Joanna Lumley’s hair once! She came into my salon. That was so fun. A bit of Ab Fab.

“My biggest turn off is a guy that tries to belittle other guys. In a boy’s group, you always get the good looking, arrogant one. I can always see through them, and it usually shows a lot of insecurity in them when they dig out other guys.”

Darylle says: “I am really tattooed so I love heavily tattooed guys but I also like people who have good chat and banter, someone who isn’t too serious. In the villa, I’ve got my eye on Adam, he is beautiful. I like Jack too, and Josh.”

Charlie Brake

Age: 23

Occupation: Socialite (is that a job?)

From: Chelsea

Charlie says: “I’ve got my eye on Ellie and Megan.

“I did go out with one of my mate’s exes. I went there and we fell out so I would definitely do that. A lot of my mates call me ‘Snakey Brakey’ as a joke. I have got a reputation to walk over people, even if they are my mates. If I want something, I’ll go for it.”

Occupation: Make-up artist

From: London

Kazimir says: “I have done the makeup for some famous people – I worked on Stormzy’s music videos and I helped with the makeup for Chris and Kem’s video. I did Kem’s makeup. I was asking him all about Love Island but it was a long time ago and I never would have dreamed back then that I would now be going on the show.”

“I change my mind in terms of who I like every time I watch it – but at the moment it is probably Ellie and Zara. They both seem cool and chatty. They’re most similar to my usual type.”

“I think I’m looking for a guy that I can be myself around. I want someone I can have a silly time with. I love the thought of having an amazing experience with a guy who comes on the journey with me.”
