Among those newbies looking to flirt their way to the main villa are a social media influencer, an international DJ and a consultant.
One of the new contestants looking for love is Medhy Malanda, a 24-year-old model and American football player who play for the team London Blitz.
Originally from Belgium, Malanda currently resides in Luton. He speaks four languages: English, French, Dutch and Lingala.
Speaking to ITV about his reasons for appearing on the show, he said: “I’ve been single for 4 years and I love a good challenge. I love temptation so I thought why not?”
Asked whether there was someone in the villa that he already had his eye on, Malanda replied: “Definitely Kaz.
“Kaz’s personality is fiery, she’s got energy, she’s funny and she’s got a beautiful smile and she’s a nice girl in general. And Millie seems like a nice girl and she’s obviously good looking as well,” he added.
“Stepping on toes is not even a question! It’s part of the game, if you’re not happy to have your toes stepped on then don’t come to the show; especially when it comes to Casa Amor. I’m here for that.”
