Laura Anderson:

Laura hopes to glam up this series of Love Island and has dated an unnamed sports star. The Love Island producers have privately described her as a “nightmare”.

She also claimed that Simon Cowell joined the mile high club back when he was single. She said she saw him go into the bathroom with two women.

However, the Sun’s own Dan Wootton has rubbished her claims. He said: “Knowing Simon like I do, good hygiene, cleanliness and familiarity are all important to him.

“So I’d say it was much more likely the ladies were touching up his makeup more than anything else. And sources close to Cowell have lashed out at her tall stories as total lies.”

Laura says that cheating is ‘the lowest of the low’ and that she’s been cheated on but has also cheated once.

Age: 29.

From: Stirling, Scotland.

Occupation: Cabin Crew.

Looking for in a man: Rugged, real man.

Laura adds: “My voice might annoy people. Or perhaps I might tell too many jokes. I’m sure when you live with people you will always rub them up the wrong way on occasion.”

Laura’s had 9 ex-boyfriends and once served Channing Tatum his dinner on a flight. She’s also had two flings with celebs and isn’t bothered about age but won’t tolerate cheats.

She also claims she’s a girl’s girl but won’t think twice about making a move on a guy someone else likes.

Dani Dyer:

Dani is the oldest of Danny Dyer’s three daughters and works in a pub in Loughton, Essex. She is an aspiring actress and has starred in 8 movies – including Age of Kill opposite Martin Kemp.

A source said: “Danny reckons he has the power to get Dani in as a permanent star on EastEnders.

“He has been putting the odd word in with the producers and has even brought her down to the set once or twice.

“Dani has the potential to be a big star and her dad is hugely supportive of her.

“Given how popular he is on the show she is in a great position, too.”

She’s admitted that her worst quality is that she can be ‘ a bit too much’.

Age: 21.

From: Essex.

Occupation: Barmaid.

Looking for in a man: Someone who doesn’t know her dad.

Dani hates people who just date her because of her famous dad and admitted she’s scared of flirting on TV. She hopes she meets someone genuine.

She says: “I’d love to go out for dinner on a beach and have a nice, normal conversation that flows.”

Hayley has modelled for some fashion brands and did an advert for ITVBe. She did a beauty pageant and got scouted by a modelling agency in Manchester. She also had a cameo on Corrie and Our Girl.

Hayley, 21, told the Mirror: “I had a feature part on Corrie. It was a non speaking part. It was just my face on the telly.

“I would love to do more acting. I went to a drama school in Manchester.

“I love Michelle Keegan. I’m obsessed with her. She is my girl crush. I love her. I’ve always followed her career.

“She wasn’t on Corrie when I was there but I met her on Our Girl. I had a picture with her after I had a little feature part in the show.. She is so sweet and lovely.”

Age: 21.

From: Liverpool.

Occupation: Model.

Looking for in a man: Someone who wears their heart on their sleeve.

Hayley adds: “My dimples are very unique and that’s a sign of beauty. I’m quite a loving person, and I always think about other people and their feelings. I’m not a selfish person, I’d say I’m very caring. I’m confident within myself.

Kendall Rae-Knight:

Samira Mighty:

Samira has had a romance with Hollywood star Chris Pine after meeting him at an awards show in 2016.

‘It was just a simple date,’ she recalled. ‘I went to the GQ Man of the Year after party and I thought I recognised this guy. I knew him from Disney Channel. I thought “My God he was in that movie with Lindsay Lohan,” and he kind of moved to me and I thought, “He seems fun.”

‘I kind of looked him up and thought, “He’s actually a pretty big deal.” He was like, “Take my number.” I was super super-drunk so I couldn’t even be bothered to entertain it, but he’d just won Man of the Year, so I was like “be drunk.”’

The pair have stayed in touch and text each other from time to time.

Age: 22.

From: London.

Occupation: West End performer.

Looking for in a man: Someone to have fun with.

Samira’s made a name for herself in the West End in roles with Mamma Mia!, Dream Girls and Beauty and the Beast.

She explains: “Everyone in the West End knows everybody. So it will be a big shock when they see me on this show.”

Niall Aslam:

Niall’s biggest worry about being on the show is being voted off first. He also worries he will get ‘pied off’ constantly.

The 23-year-old says he would take a girl off one of the other lads without giving it a second thought.

He says: ‘I don’t care who a lad is if he is big, better looking, I’m still going in there and I’ll still rock up and try and chat up his missus.’

Age: 23.

From: Coventry.

Occupation: Student/Construction worker.

Looking for in a woman: Someone fit.

Niall describes himself as a “barn yard animal” because he chews very loudly. He’s also said his ex-girlfriend won’t be happy because Love Island is her favourite show and if you had to ask her to describe him in 2 words, they’d be “immature and attention seeker”.

Niall adds: “I am going in there and I want to find love. I don’t care who a lad is if he is big, better looking, I’m still going in there and I’ll still rock up and try and chat up his missus.”

Eyal Booker:

Eyal’s biggest worry about the show is: ‘I’m a bit nervous but I think anyone would be! My parents, my sister and my Gran might see something that they don’t necessarily want to see. Besides that, I’m excited,’ he admits.

He had a brush with success with pop band EverYoung which was comprised of Hollie McKinlay, Jack Morlen, Cherelle Williams and Eyal and they all attended Sylvia Young Theatre School together where they were signed on an 18-mnth apprenticeship to Sylvia’s record label.

After joining Love Island, Eyal revealed his pop star past, saying: “We had small time success and toured the country, built up a little fan base and there was fan girl hysteria.

“They’d follow us around and come to our gigs and stuff so that was a little taste.”

Age: 22.

From: London.

Occupation: Model.

Looking for in a woman: His true love.

Eyal says he wants to find true love in the show and to connect with someone spiritually. He also thinks being a gentleman is the best dating tactic.

Eyal says to win his heart the girls would have to be “captivating me and enticing me with both their mind and what they look like. And just being a great person who has good morals and values and who wants to have a lot of life experiences, as opposed to materialistic things.”

He’s also big into his fitness and once pretended he had to get his dad from the airport because his ex ordered a pizza and he couldn’t be near it. WOW – who wants to bet he’s a bore?
