Maya Jama will be taking over hosting duties from Laura Whitmore, and while a first-look teaser of her in the role was released last month, we are just now starting to get news of the contestants who will be entering the villa this year.

What is Kai Fagan looking for in a partner?

So far, Kai has said little about exactly what he's looking for, but he did says that he feels like he has "quite high expectations".
