With just one week to go until the new series of Love Island begins, ITV has revealed the identities of the singletons heading to Spain this summer.
Eleven contestants - five men and six women - will be entering the villa on day one, from a government worker to a semi-pro footballer and the show's first ever disabled contestant.
Scroll on to meet this year's Islanders!
Occupation: Financial services marketing executive
Quote: "I want someone who is funny. Really funny and caring and will do nice little things for you. And then obviously someone who you can depend on to not ditch you. Because I am quite a big character and quite loud, they would have to be as loud, if not more. I could never be with someone who is quiet. Someone that gives you a bit back."
Occupation: Semi-professional footballer
Quote: "I've played football since I was about six, but it's really come into a new light for the past year since I joined a team called Hashtag United. They're very social media focused. Everything is on YouTube, Instagram and Twitter. Playing with them has really made me fall in love with the game again."
Occupation: Lettings manager
Quote: "I go out and do valuations, win business for the company and I'll do the odd viewing and find tenants. My main role is the sales side of things. I absolutely love it! I've actually only taken a sabbatical from work because in my ideal world, I'd love to go back to work. I try to make it as Selling Sunset as possible. I'm definitely there in the mini dresses, boobs out, bum out, turning up and you can see the wives say to their husband, 'You're staying outside'. It's so fun."
Quote: "I'm a party girl, I love going out, I'm very social. For me it's quite hard to find people who are genuine and looking for what you're looking for. I'm not just going to go with anyone because they're convenient. I need to make sure they're for me. Looks – obviously, they've got to be handsome, but if he's a handsome hunk but it's like talking to a brick wall and I'd rather watch paint dry, it's not going to be great."
Occupation: Water engineer
Quote: "I was in a relationship for seven years and then when lockdown hit, I was single. The opportunity is there, you might as well take it by the horns and go for it. For me, the main thing is having respect and having good fun, and someone who will be loyal to you. I've had messages from girls that have got boyfriends and husbands. This is why I don't trust anyone. Someone who is loyal really. But when I'm single, I like having a good time!"
Occupation: Fashion blogger
Quote: "I'm fun, dramatic, spontaneous. Friendly as well. Light-hearted. Life is a party – I'm not the mum in the group, my friends are not looking at me to look after them!"
Quote: "I want to date face-to-face, I like meeting people. I'm easy going, laid back. Who wouldn't want to be in a nice villa in a hot country for a while?"
Occupation: Operations lead at the Department for Transport
Quote: "It's been a bit of a running joke between my friendship group for a while that I should apply, probably because I'm the most outrageous one out of the group. But also because of COVID and the lockdown, I'm the only single one in my friendship group. They're either married or planning on getting married. I don't want to be the only one in the group chat that is single anymore!"
Occupation: Luxury events host
Quote: "I need someone that is passionate about what they are doing - from scientist to anything - you can tell when someone is speaking about something and they are actually smiling while they are talking. I love that. I don't like when people are doing a job just to make money and then they kind of just live for the weekend. Especially because I work on the weekends."
Occupation: Nando's waitress and marketing student
Quote: "I've had people try and rinse me for a date at Nando's, get the discount and stuff. But I've never had a date in one. I've had a few things happen at work. I've had a napkin shaped as a rose given to me which was cute, that was when I first started working there and then I've been proposed to. It was a bit unexpected! He was on his own, he'd come into the restaurant every week and he got down on one knee and was like, 'Will you marry me?'. But in his hand, it was a charity support badge not a diamond ring or nothing. So I was thinking, that's one way of saying I'm a charity case when it comes to love!"
Occupation: PE teacher
Quote: "I've actually played cricket for England PD (Physical Disability). I've been to Bangladesh, Dubai, I've been everywhere to play cricket. I was born with clubfoot. I had lots of operations when I was a kid. You can only really tell when I walk barefoot. I've got a really short achilles heel. I walk slightly on my tip toes."
Love Island begins Monday, June 28 at 9pm on ITV2.
