Age: 27

From: Essex

Job: Actress

Instagram: @ekinsuofficial

Entered: Day 3

Who is Ekin-Su coupled up with? Ekin-Su is in a couple with Davide Sanclimenti.

Actress and feisty bombshell Ekin-Su arrived in the Love Island villa on Day 3 alongside recently dumped Afia.

Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu is looking for true love this summer, after being quite "picky" with her love interests.

"I’m looking for that real genuine spark and they just see me as me. I think the concept of the show brings back true and raw feelings," she says.

Asked why she's single, she said: "Partially because I’m quite picky and I’m not just looking for looks, I’m looking for brains! I’m looking for someone with intelligence, someone who can have good chats. Nothing like cockiness! I’m looking for a serious man and a serious relationship."

A woman who knows what she wants, Ekin-Su has flirted with multiple boys in the villa but managed to pair up with Italian "stallion" Davide.

However, due to a lack of effort from Davide, her attention shifted to the new arrival Jay.

The pair shared an illicit kiss on the terrace which was eventually exposed to the villa after Ekin-Su denied having been with Jay.

In the aftermath, Davide cut ties with Ekin-Su and she went on to couple up with Jay in the recoupling.

However, after Jay cooled off their romance, Ekin-Su got to know Charlie but also realised that her heart lies with Davide and they recoupled.

The pair also survived Casa Amor despite each having flirtations and intimate moments with new arrivals.

Davide Sanclimenti

Occupation: Business Owner

Entered: Day 1

Who is Davide coupled up with? Davide is in a couple with Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu.

Self-proclaimed 'Italian stallion' Davide Sanclimenti is entering the villa this year and while he's looking forward to having "so much fun", he is also looking for the one.

"I’m looking forward to it. I want to find my soulmate, find my person so I can actually build something in the future, grow with them, be a family," he said.

As for what he's bringing to the show, the 27-year-old says his "personality and Italian charm", adding: "I’m getting serious about my life and my goals. My biggest dream is to find someone I can spend the rest of my life with."

Despite having initially chosen to pair with Gemma, Davide was paired with Ekin-Su until she tired of his lack of passion and pursued Jay - eventually choosing to recouple with him instead.

Davide was then paired with Gemma due to the fact her recent partner Luca was picked by new girl Danica.

Yet, Davide eventually reconciled with Ekin-Su and the pair are going from strength to strength after surviving Casa Amor as a couple.

Gemma Owen

Occupation: International Dressage Rider and Business Owner

Entered: Day 1

Who is Gemma coupled up with? Gemma is in a couple with Luca Bish.

Rumours that Gemma Owen, dressage rider and daughter of footballer Michael Owen, would be entering the villa began flying a month prior to the series – and they turned out to be true!

The 19-year-old was officially announced as one of the 2022 contestants and revealed that she was "open to finding love".

"I’m wanting to have a really fun summer. I was seeing someone and then that didn’t work out so I thought, 'Why not?'," she added.

Gemma also said that she is very competitive given that sport has been a huge part of her life. "My dad was a professional football player. I’ve competed for Great Britain in dressage since I was 11 years old. I’ve travelled all across Europe competing in big arenas in big competitions.

"[When it comes to relationships] I will always go for what I want. But at the same time, I’m not going to mess up something for someone who is in a proper relationship or get in the way of a couple if they have a genuine connection," she said. "I wouldn’t do anything to another girl that I wouldn’t be happy with them doing to me."

Since being in the villa, Gemma has been paired up with Liam by the public before she was chosen to couple up with Davide.

However, at recent recouplings, Gemma ended up paired with fishmonger Luca - despite her ex-boyfriend Jacques later arriving for some drama.

Then, when new girl Danica entered the villa, she chose to couple up with Luca - leaving Gemma to couple up with old partner Davide in a platonic pairing.

However, the pair were eventually reunited and have remained a strong pairing ever since.

Age: 26

From: Dublin

Job: Senior Microbiologist

Entered: Day 1

Who is Dami coupled up with? Dami is in a couple with Indiyah Pollack.

Senior microbiologist Dami Hope was the first male contestant to be confirmed by Love Island, with the 26-year-old hoping to find love – although he warns "it might not go well".

The 26-year-old has said that he'll be bringing himself to the show, adding: "Being me – funny and personality. I don’t know if I will cause trouble, I’ll try not to cause trouble but sometimes you don’t intentionally cause trouble - but it happens!"

As for what he's looking for in a love match, he thinks star signs are a good indicator. "I’m an Aries but I’m very passionate - I always used to put that person first.

"If they had something they wanted to do or something they were passionate about, I’d make sure that even if it’s something I’m not talented at I’d get talented at it just so it helps them."

Since entering the villa, Dami has been coupled-up with Amber and they appear to be going from strength to strength - despite Amber finding the new boy Jay attractive.

Dami then got together with Indiyah but Casa Amor saw them pair up with new people.

After the experience ended, however, Dami reaffirmed his feelings for Indiyah and they went on to recouple.

Thirsk-based model and dancer Tasha Ghouri entered the show on Day 1 as the first deaf contestant.

The 23-year-old, who runs an Instagram account which raises awareness for the deaf community, has said she signed up for the show as her "dating life has been a shambles".

"This is an opportunity for me to find ‘the one’ and have a great summer at the same time," she said. "I’m definitely ready for a relationship. I’m 23 now so I’m ready to get to know someone, go on holidays and travel with them."

As for her personality, Tasha said that her family and friends would describe her as "wild".

"I can get very wild on a night out, I’m definitely a party animal. I love my prosecco and to have a dance - I’m always on the dance floor," she added. "I’m very loyal to my friends and family, I’ll always have their backs."

Tasha has been paired up with Andrew since the beginning despite having also shown interest in Luca and then Jay, then Charlie and then Billy during Casa Amor.

Despite their ups and downs, Tasha has since reconciled with Andrew and they went on to couple up again.

Age: 23

From: London

Job: Waitress and model

Instagram: @1ndiyah

Entered: Day 1

Who is Indiyah coupled up with? Indiyah is in a couple with Dami Hope.

London-based hotel waitress Indiyah Polack was the third islander to be confirmed for this year's show, with the 23-year-old hoping to "bring a lot of flavour and vibrancy" to the villa.

Indiyah, who has also modelled for BooHoo, Bold cosmetics and other brands, signed up for the show as she's ready to start dating properly.

"I have been single for some time and I feel like for my generation of people, it’s quite hard to date without being influenced by social media and stuff like that," she said.

"Love Island particularly is like a closed space and I think it is a great place to get to know someone one-on-one and build a real connection."

Since arriving on Day 1, Indiyah has been paired up with Ikenna, with the pair building their bond slowly but surely.

However, the arrival of new boy Remi may meant that Ikenna had some competition to deal with but ultimately saw Remi dumped from the villa when no girl chose him in the recoupling.

Indiyah then grew close to friend Dami and they coupled up.

However, after Casa Amor the pair were no longer together after both chose new pairings, with Indiyah choosing to couple up with Deji.

Yet, despite this, Indiyah and Dami have since reconciled and went on to recouple.

Luca Bish

Age: 23

From: Brighton

Occupation: Fishmonger

Instagram: @lucabish

Entered: Day 1

Who is Luca coupled up with? Luca is with Gemma.

Brighton-based Luca Bish was the last Love Island contestant to be announced out of the original cast, with the fishmonger heading into the Mallorca villa.

The 23-year-old is hoping he'll be as successful as former Love Island couples on the show, saying: "When you actually look back at Love Island, you can see how many couples it’s genuinely made. I don’t know how many kids Love Island has made but there are a few, aren’t there?"

Being recently single, Luca says that he usually likes to meet girls "out and about".

"I think when you go looking for it, it’s not as easy though, it’s like you’re too desperate for it," he said. "If I think you’re the one or I like you, I’ll take you out on a date but other than that, if we talk and I don’t like where it’s going - then I won’t be throwing out dates."

When arriving on Day 1, Luca was paired with Welsh paramedic Paige before deciding to couple up with Gemma.

The pair have remained together since, barring a slight spanner in the works when Danica chose to couple up with him. By the end of the series, Luca and Gemma had been together almost the entire time.

Real estate agent Andrew Le Page first arrived in the villa on Day 1.

Andrew signed up for Love Island as he's "actually single for once".

"I thought why not? This is the best time to give it a go," he added.

As for what he's bringing to the villa, Andrew says: "When I’m with someone I'm very loyal, I’m a good boyfriend as when I’m with someone I’m all for them."

Since Day 1, Andrew has been paired up with Tasha and despite her showing an interest in Luca, they remain together.

However, while Tasha's heart was left "pounding" by Jay, she later was irritated by Jay's comments to Andrew about her interest in him - prompting her to reaffirm her commitment to Andrew.

The arrival of Charlie again caused issues for the pair but they soon committed to each other.

During Casa Amor, the new girls warned Andrew off Tasha, prompting him to get intimate with new girl Coco.

Upon the recoupling, Andrew paired up with Coco but swiftly turned his attention back to Tasha and - after arguments about his behaviour - the pair reconciled.

In the following recoupling, Andrew chose to couple up with Tasha and she later asked him to be her boyfriend.

"In Swansea, there is just no one I can find. I’ve tried and there’s just nobody there anymore," she said. "Love Island just brings everyone together for me. I haven't got to go out and I haven’t got to swipe. So, hopefully, they can just come to me now!"

As for what she brings to the table, Paige says she's a "good cook" and "quite mumsy" so she'll "look after anyone that needs looking after."

Arriving on Day 1 in the villa, Paige was coupled up with Luca until he chose to couple up with Gemma.

After this, Paige was left single until the following recoupling when she was coupled up with Gemma's ex, Jacques.

She also described herself like so: "I feel like I am quite a relatable person. I’ve come from a small town but I’ve got a lot in me. I like to be silly. I’ve got an immature side and a mature side."

Upon her first day in the villa, the recoupling saw Danica choose to couple up with Luca - which did not go down well with him.

Danica was soon left in multiple platonic pairings until meeting Josh in Casa Amor and returning to the main villa with him.

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."

Billy showed interest in Paige and Tasha - eventually coupling up with the latter and returning to the main villa.

"I think I genuinely have what most females want. I’ve got a good job, I think I am a good looking lad and I have a lot of fun so I feel like I could add a lot of value to their lives if they add a lot of value to mine," he adds.

Jay very quickly caught the eye of multiple ladies, appeared to have tension with Jacques and made very clear to fellow bombshell Remi that it was "all to play for" as he attempted to woo the ladies away from their current couplings.

After pursuing multiple girls, Jay turned up the heat with Ekin-Su and they shared a kiss - resulting in them eventually pairing up in the recoupling.

However, Jay soon ended his romance with Ekin-Su to pursue Paige but did not find much luck.

"I’m very much on the personality side of things and whether you vibe with someone. Ekin-Su is more towards my classic type. Paige seems like a very, very nice girl. Tasha seems like good fun as well. I find her quite intriguing - I want to find out more about her."

However, Ikenna has become known for being "chilled" as he takes his romance slow with Indiyah, who he has been paired with since Day 1.

"As I work with kids I have patience with kids but adults, they annoy me!" she said.

The nanny has listed her icks however, adding that she doesn't like "guys that show off".

"Don’t like flashy, showy-offy guys - just have a personality and make me laugh. There was this one guy and he was trying to purposefully show off his car keys and we were literally in the middle of a restaurant!"

Since the first day, Amber has been paired with Dami and they seemed happy enough until fairly recently as Amber showed interest in Jay too.

As they grow further apart, Dami shows an interest in Indiyah. Could Amber be left alone?

She added: "I fall in love quickly, too quickly, two dates I am like, ‘OMG I am obsessed with this boy, he’s everything.’"

Masters student Liam Llewellyn was the first contestant to leave the villa in 2022 after deciding to quit the show on Day 5.

He had been paired up with Gemma until he was left single when she was chosen to couple up with Davide.

Liam had said that he's looking forward to meeting "a load of different types" on the show so he can "get to grips with what [he] really likes about people".

"The thing that girls quite like is that I’m not just like, 'You’re mint.' I’m like, 'Your eyes are piercing, I’m lost in your eyes.' Or I’ll say something like, 'You’ve got nice feet' or something," he added.

As for his approach to finding love, Liam has admitted that he wears his heart on his sleeve. " I can’t hide how I feel about anyone. I’m probably quite emotional as well come to think about it," he said.

It was certainly an emotional goodbye when Liam left the villa.
