Love Island’s infamous Casa Amor has returned for another year and a whole host of new singletons have touched down in South Africa and are sure to shake up the villa.

Six hunky boys and six stunning girls are hoping to turn some heads after the current couples were separated into two different villas during Sunday night’s dramatic episode.

From a professional boxer to former Love Island finalist Dami Hope‘s close friend and a sexy energy consultant with his eye on Lana Jenkins, who is currently coupled up with Ron Hall, they certainly look set to cause some drama.

Leading the new male additions to the ITV dating show are boxer Frankie Davey, 22, energy consultant Kain Reed, 21, software engineer Martin Akinola, 27, and operations manager Bayley Mummery, 25.

Making up the arrivals are finance student Maxwell Samuda, 23, and steel erector Ryan Weekley, 22, with a staggering four out of six of the new boys admitting they have their eye on Samie Elishi, who is currently in a couple with Tom Clare.

The six new boys will all be in competition as they vie for the attention of the stunning Islanders – Tanya Manhenga, Jessie Wynter, Olivia Hawkins and recent bombshell Claudia Fogarty, as well as Lana and Samie.

The boys will have a matter of days to get to know the girls away from the current boys’ attention, who will stay in a separate villa with the six Casa Amor girls.  

As always, the Islanders must couple up in order to secure their place in the villa, with those who stay single finding themselves at risk of being dumped from the island.

Among those sure to ruffle some feathers in the villa is professional boxer Frankie, who hails from Ipswich, who joked that he is planning to ‘take the boxing gloves off and get the grafting gloves on’.

He described himself as a ‘laidback guy’ and ‘self-confident’ and said he plans to chat to all the girls and get to know them, cryptically hinting that he wants to pursue a girl who is currently in a couple. 

‘There’s two girls that have caught my eye.. one would be a more difficult one to pursue,’ he teased, but it remains to be seen which Islanders have caught his attention.

Frankie, who is 6ft tall, often shares shirtless snaps and videos of himself in the ring to his Instagram page, where he boasts 20,300 followers already.

Another new arrival who is set to turn heads is Irish bombshell Martin, from Dublin, who already has a connection to Love Island before even entering the villa.

Bombshell: Ryan Weekley, from Nottingham, is a steel erector and described himself as 'funny', while saying he plans to bring 'good energy' to the villa. He joked that he will be 'repping for the gingers' on the show

Turning heads: Operations manager Bayley Mummery, 25, said of who he had his eye on before entering the villa: 'Samie, she's my type to a T. If you asked my mum or dad my type they would literally describe her'

The senior software engineer, 27, is close friends with Dami Hope, who appeared on the 2022 summer edition of the ITV2 show and made it all the way to the final with Indiyah Polack, coming in third place.

Martin described himself as a ‘winner’ and admitted that he had been given some words of advice from Dami ahead of his own stint in the villa.

Revealing Dami’s advice, he explained: ‘[Dami] said, ‘Do your thing, be yourself and everyone else will get to know you, and get to see why we’re friends.’ He was saying, ‘You tell the boys on a night out, ‘This is how to talk to a girl’, now go and show them how it’s done.’ I was like, I can do that!’

Sharing his normal dating techniques, Martin admitted that his usual tactic is to DM a girl a rose emoji, claiming it ‘works every time’.

He went on to say that his body is his ‘key selling point’ and said he is ‘always shirtless’ and also described himself as a ‘nerd’, adding: ‘I have a really nerdy job. I’m into really nerdy stuff. I think the girls like it, but I don’t admit it initially, they see it later.’

Turning heads? And one boy who could be set to cause some drama is energy consultant Kain, who admitted he has his eye on Lana, who is currently in a couple with Ron after their rocky time in the villa

And one boy who could be set to cause some drama is energy consultant Kain, who admitted he has his eye on Lana, who is currently in a couple with Ron after their rocky time in the villa.

Lana has had her fair share of ups and downs in the villa, with Ron leaving her multiple times to explore romances with other islanders, but the pair finally got back together and coupled up this week.

But Kain, from Gateshead, Newcastle, could be set to put another obstacle in the way, saying: ‘I also like Lana, she’s obviously coupled up, but in Casa Amor the other boys aren’t there so we’ll have to see what happens won’t we?!’

Kain, who also models and shares his stylish shoot pictures to his Instagram, also admitted he is interested in Samie, who recently paired up with Tom – who has already been in couples with Olivia and dumped Islander Zara Lackenby-Brown.

Bombshell: Ryan, from Nottingham, is a steel erector and described himself as 'funny', while saying he plans to bring 'good energy' to the villa. He joked that he will be 'repping for the gingers' on the show

He added: ‘If I had my choice it would be Samie, as soon as I start talking to her I think there’s a good chance it could happen.’

Kain also has some celebrity connections as he appears to be friends with Geordie Shore star Kyle Christie, who has a son with model Vicky Turner.

Kyle has been seen commenting on Kain’s social media posts and even wished his pal a Merry Christmas and told him he would see him ‘later on’, with Kain sending his love to the star’s family in response. 

Kain described himself as ‘fun and charismatic’ and admitted he is going into the villa to test how strong the current relationships are and ‘turn heads’ as he looks sure to stir things up.
