We finally know who will be entering the Love Island villa this summer!

Now, ahead of the launch of Love Island’s eleventh series, the producers behind the show have unveiled the 12 original Islanders that will be entering the villa in the coming days.

Earlier today, the Love Island team took to social media to reveal the six boys and six girls that have been chosen as part of the initial lineup.

27-year-old footballer Ronnie already has links to Love Island, as he is best friends with Bradley Dack - the husband of former series 3 finalist Olivia Attwood. 24-year-old Harriet has teased that she is “definitely up for the flirting”, and 24-year-old Sean is on the hunt to find “The One”.

There are a few Welsh Islanders this year, with 21-year-old Ciaran hoping to find “something serious with the right girl”, and 24-year-old Nicole claiming that she will have “one of the biggest personalities in the villa.”

“Okay we’re getting somewhere,” one fan teased on Instagram.

“Absolutely unreal,” another commented.

However, other fans have expressed disappointment, with one writing on X: “No diversity.”

“I’ll start watching when the bombshells start coming in,” another argued.

Love Island begins this Monday (June 3) at 9pm on ITV2.
