Among those vying to charm their way to love and reality show glory are an American football player, a social media influencer and an international DJ.
One of the dozen new people arriving on the show is Matthew MacNabb, a strategic marketing consultant from Belfast.
The 26-year-old spoke to ITV ahead of his debut on Love Island.
Asked why he had applied to go on the series, he said: “The main thing is the adventure, it seems like a really fun thing to do.”
On whether he would “step on people’s toes” in order to get what he wants on Love Island, MacNabb responded: “I won’t have much of a problem with that. The guys haven’t known the girls that long so it’s not really a huge issue. I’m sure if they have a problem they’ll approach me.”
“I feel like I’m pretty chilled and very adventurous,” he added. “I’m very laidback in the sense I like to laugh and I don’t care too much about what people think.”
