UPDATED: Meet All This Year’s Love Island Contestants

June 28th, folks!

The day has arrived, folks!

Love Island has began releasing information on this season’s contestants, something which has been under lock and key until now – ahead of this year’s seventh summer series.

What we know about this season so far is that Mallorca is once again the stomping ground for the competition, Laura Whitmore and Iain Stirling are both back on hosting and VO duties and the show will apparently run for eight weeks.

The last time the summer series aired was in 2019 when Limerick man Greg O’Shea and Newcastle’s Amber Rose Gill took home the winning title and prize money of £50,000 – if you can even cast your mind back THAT far.

But now, we’ve finally got some new contestants to lay our eyes on… here’s who we’ve met so far.

Sharon

The first contestant to be announced is Sharon Gaffka. Sharon is a multilingual lawyer who won Miss International UK in 2018 and represented Britain in an international tournament, pretty impressive.

Aaron

The second contestant to be officially announced is Aaron Francis. The 24-year-old club promoter has been dubbed a “ladies man” by those who know him and without former influencer or celebrity background, it looks like Aaron is going to be a great fit.

Back in January 2020, Love Island did return for a brief stint with the debut winter series taking place in Cape Town, South Africa. But again, all plans to air a second season earlier this year got postponed due to the pandemic and uncertainty around travel at that time.

Now, finally back on our screens, Love Island bosses reported that this season would be the “biggest and best” season yet, so, here’s hoping they keep to that promise and give us a lot of bombshells and plenty of singles ready to mingle. We need the dramz back in our lives.

Love Island returns to Virgin Media television June 28th at 9pm.
