Check out our guide to the Love Island 2019 contestants below:
From: Dublin, Ireland
“Every time I say that I’m a scientist, people are shocked. I think there are loads of intelligent people on reality television, last year we had Dr Alex and the year before we had Camilla Thurlow in the villa.”
From: Newquay, Cornwall
“I like the typical surfer look – blonde, long hair. I find sporty guys so much more attractive compared to your average guy that just chills and goes on nights out.”
Job: Beauty therapist
“I want someone who is funny and that I can have fun with and doesn’t take themselves too seriously because I am daft.”
From: Worthing, Sussex
Job: Cabin crew manager
“I’m looking for someone to travel the world with, have fun with and someone who is going to love me as much as I love them.”
“I think I’m different to anyone who has been on the show before. I have the whole glam look, I’m fun but at the same time I feel like I have more to me than that.
From: Airdrie, Scotland
Job: Gym owner
“My last relationship, I actually got caught cheating for the first time in my life and it changed everything for me. I saw how much it hurt her and what it did to her. So, for me going to into Love Island, it’s going to be the biggest test of my life.”
“I don’t want to be labelled [Tyson Fury’s] little brother. I’m doing the best that I can do in life and that’s all I’m setting out to achieve.”
From: South-East London
Job: Catering company owner
“For me, it’s just more how we click, if she is fun, outgoing and doesn’t take herself too seriously and is open to talk about things.”
“I need somebody I can get on with, and have a conversation with and not get lost in translation. And she’s got to have a nice bum.”
Job: Chef and semi-pro rugby player
“I feel that I make people laugh so I want a girl that makes me laugh, even if that’s just from being herself and not trying to be funny. My actual laugh, my hysterical laugh is pretty ugly.
“I laugh at everything, which sometimes gets me into trouble. I can’t really take anything seriously.”
From: South Wales
Job: Aircraft engineer
“I’m 28 now so time is ticking, I don’t want to be left on the shelf. The whole experience is going to be great and if I meet someone, that’s what I’m here for.”
Job: Ballroom and Latin Dancer
“I have lived a very sheltered life because of my dancing, I’ve not done a lot of going out partying, going on dates because I haven’t had time to.
“Being truthful I’ve probably been on less than ten dates, maybe five dates. I have never met anyone online, I’ve never used a dating app.”
