One of the bombshells who has played a big part in all of this is Lillie Haynes – a trainee accountant from South Shields.

The 22-year-old had her eye on Jake and Liam when she arrived in the villa and after meeting them both, decided to make a play for Liam who is coupled up with Millie Court in the main villa.

Recently, Liam admitted he finds Casa Amor bombshell Lillie attractive, as the pair engaged in a very, flirty conversation.

Millie obviously doesn’t know what’s going on, but she might get a clue when the girls receive some post on Wednesday night’s episode.

In a preview from the episode, Liberty throws away a Casa Amor postcard – but what did she see? And what will it mean for the Love Island 2021 contestants.

Here’s everything you need to know about Lillie Haynes – who is a part of this year’s Casa Amor cast.

Why did Lillie sign up for Love Island?

Lillie wants to meet new people and see where it goes, saying: “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!”

What does Lillie do for work?

Lillie is a trainee accountant.

“I was always maths and science-based at school, I was more natural at that kind of thing,” she explained ahead of her Casa Amor debut.

“I followed my passion route originally, which was dancing. And then I realised I should probably go back to my natural capabilities. I liked the sound of finance and accountancy. My colleagues would describe me as a lovable headache. I’m very loud and I’ve always got a new story to tell in the office.”

Who has Lillie got her eye on in the villa?

Lillie was interested in two of the boys before she joined the show – Liam and Jake.

“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,” she said.

Jake recently made things official with Liberty, and Liam is coupled up with Millie, who he calls “Millie Moo.”

So, how did Lillie feel about stepping on the other girls’ toes?

“I love a challenge,” she said. “I’m just going to be myself. I’m quite cheeky, naturally flirty and make it clear what I want anyway. If I get the signals of ‘back off, I’m sleeping outside by myself’ then I will… I’m going in there to date people I don’t usually date. I will explore other options. I’ll make it clear that I’m going in for that. I don’t mind stepping on toes. I’m there for the same reason they are.”
