The new series of Love Island is tantalisingly close and to whet our appetites ahead of their arrival at the villa, ITV has announced the full cast.

Series eight of the show is heading to our screens on Monday, June 6 - less than a week to wait until we will hear shouts of "I've got a text!" once again.

This year there will be two welsh contestants heading into the villa from the start - Paige Thorne and Liam Llewellyn.

24-year-old Swansea paramedic Paige Throne is heading to the Love Island villa next week.

She said: “In Swansea there is just no-one I can find, I’ve tried and there’s just nobody there anymore. I need to break out and broaden my horizons and Love Island just brings everyone together for me. I haven't got to go out and I haven’t got to swipe. So, hopefully they can just come to me now.”

Newport-born, Liam is a 22-year-old Master's Student in Strength and Conditioning and is ready to get his flirt on.

Saying that he thinks "22 is a really nice age to meet someone, you’ve got your years ahead of you so you have time to experience stuff and grow together.

"I think Love Island is a great opportunity to meet someone, you’re in with a load of different types, so you can get to grips with what you really like about people."

Love Island will return to our screens on Monday, June 6 at 9pm on ITV and ITV Hub.
