WHAT GIVES YOU THE ICK? When a guy stunts for money, that’s an ick. Showing off all their designer clothes because most of the time they’re probably fake anyway! Another one is when a boy runs for the train and the train goes without him. Lunch Boxes also – just go to Tesco and get a meal deal!

NAME: Leah Taylor
OCCUPATION: Business Owner (Social Media Marketing)
DO YOU FALL IN LOVE QUICKLY? This is difficult because I would have said that I was a slow-burner, but I think that’s because I’ve been more closed off in the past. In all honesty, I’m such a hopeless romantic and now because I know what I want, I can’t wait to be in love again.
DO YOU HAVE ANY CLAIMS TO FAME? When I was a dancer, I actually danced at the EMAs and danced for Rita Ora and Camila Cabello. Maura Higgins is one of my best friends and we watched her best bits together one night and couldn’t stop laughing, she’s hilarious.

WHAT GIVES YOU THE ‘ICK? Someone who gets too clingy too quickly. I don’t like too many calls and too many texts. I’m not a fan of someone wearing Nike Air Force 1 trainers with a dress on a night out either or waking up with someone and seeing patchy fake tan in the morning.
NAME: Kady McDermott
OCCUPATION: Former Love Islander
WHY HAVE YOU DECIDED TO COME BACK ON THE SHOW? Not many people can say they’ve been on Love Island, let alone have done it twice! I think I’m known from season 2 for being so chaotic. People always ask, ‘Do you have regrets?’ expecting me to say yes, but I was so true to myself and I was 100% authentic. I’ll still be like that now, but seven years on, I am more mature. I’m still the fiery pocket rocket but I know what I want and what I don’t want.
WHAT BOYS DO YOU HAVE YOUR EYES ON? Zach’s my number one, Tyrique on looks, but he might need his ego putting down a little bit. I also want to get to know Mitch.

HOW DO YOU PLAN ON TURNING PEOPLE’S HEADS? I want to get to know everyone first and then let my favourites know early on that I’m interested to gauge their reaction. Then I can take it from there…
NAME: Lochan Nowacki
OCCUPATION: Account Manager
WHY ARE YOU EXCITED TO GO INTO CASA AMOR? I feel like I’m excited because a lot of the people in relationships aren’t fully secure. I know the type of person I am as well, so I feel like I can turn heads. I’m not going to be disrespectful and I’m proud of my morals as a person. I’m confident that I can go in and not necessarily stir it up, but open the ladies’ eyes to what could be a better couple.
HOW DO YOU PLAN ON TURNING PEOPLE’S HEADS? I have a top three in my mind already, so I’ll probably be pulling them for chats quite quickly and letting them know they’re the top three people I want to speak to. But I’m confident I’m a people person, I’m not going in there to act any differently to how I am with my own friends. I back myself that people will see that and see my good looks and bish, bash, bosh!
NAME: Elom Ahlijah-Wilson
OCCUPATION: Masseuse and Fitness Trainer
WHY ARE YOU EXCITED TO GO INTO CASA AMOR? I want to ruffle a few feathers and to see if I can find a strong connection. I’m excited to meet new people and see where it takes me.
HOW DO YOU PLAN ON TURNING PEOPLE’S HEADS? Firstly, by being myself and getting straight to the point. I like all of the girls in the Villa. I know I’m going to vibe with all of them, it’s just getting that one to one conversation and if I click with them, I click with them, if I don’t, I don’t and onto the next.
NAME: Amber Wise
OCCUPATION: Graphic Design Student

HOW DO YOU PLAN ON TURNING PEOPLE’S HEADS? I’m going to go in there, get to know everyone and see who gives me the same energy back. I’m confident, so I will just be myself.
NAME: Abi Moores
OCCUPATION: Flight Attendant
WHY ARE YOU EXCITED TO GO INTO CASA AMOR? I want to find a boyfriend! Everyone on Love Island is so sexy. I feel like the kind of person that would do Love Island is definitely the type of person I could be in a relationship with.
HOW DO YOU PLAN ON TURNING PEOPLE’S HEADS? Having good eye contact. Everyone says my eyes are my best feature. My plan is to gauge how they’re feeling. I always call it my ‘spidey senses’. I’m a very good judge of character, I can see through people and see their energy. If they fancy me I should be able to gauge it quite well, so I should know who to graft with and who to leave to the side.
