New Love Island Cast Includes Twins, Rochelle Humes’ sister and Lewis Capaldi’s ex

Well, January just got a whole lot hotter.

Twelve brand-new Islanders have been confirmed!

And it looks like ITV has pulled out all the stops to ensure that this year’s line-up truly delivers television gold. This year’s Love Island cast is made up of Rochelle Humes’ sister, Lewis Capaldi’s ex, an heir to a country estate, as well as a police officer (who can arrest me anytime he wants to *swoon*), 20-year-old twins, a coffee bean salesman, a customer service advisor, a scaffolder, a democratic services officer, a builder and a beauty consultant.

A reminder that these new Islanders are all looking for love and definitely not five minutes of fame and a cheeky Instagram sponsorship deal. Just to clear up any confusion there.

I know it confuses me too, sometimes.

Meet your Winter Love Islanders!

What can we expect from the show?

ITV has confirmed:

Laura [Whitmore] will present the main show which airs nightly at 9pm on ITV2 as regular presenter Caroline Flack stands down for this series. Laura will also host Love Island: Aftersun, which will air on ITV2 live from London on Monday nights at 10pm.

“The first series of the year comes from a brand new location and villa in Cape Town where a host of new Islanders will try to win the hearts of each other – and the nation – in the ultimate search for love.”

Love Island launches on Sunday 12th January on ITV2.

Honestly, I have mixed feelings about this show, but I can’t argue that it’s going to help keep me entertained  at a time when I can’t afford to leave to the house. F**k you, January.
