Love Island cast rumours are spreading like wildfires ahead of the 2021 series and fashion influencer, Aimee-Rose Francis is one of the potential new contestants.
The 29-year-old hails from the affluent southwest London area of Chelsea and boasts nearly 85,000 followers on Instagram. She could be joining Holly Ramsay, Lucy Plunkett, Lucinda Strafford, Alisha Lemay, Zack Chugg, Harley Benn, Toluwa Adepeju, Alexis Bailey, James Price, Ellis Iyayi and Jay Munro in the villa this year.
A Love Island source told The Sun: "Producers are nearly there with their cast and Aimee is top of their list." They noted that "she's incredibly well-educated, has bags of personality and isn't afraid to stand up for herself."
"She could have walked straight off reality show Made In Chelsea. Bosses think she'll be a great addition," the source added.
Here are a few things we know about the potential new Islander.
Love Island's Maura Higgins and Kaz Crossley follow her on Instagram
The luxury fashion influencer already has the attention of previous Love Island contestants. Maura Higgins and Kaz Crossley - both very stylish ladies - are following Aimee's Instagram account.
Aimee's preparing to launch her own jewellery range called 'a.m.e', which has already amassed more than 2,000 followers ahead of the website going live.
Aimee once met Kendall Jenner
Often given the opportunity to hob nob with celebrities, Aimee recalls one particular special moment was when she met Kendall Jenner at Giles.
She told The Daily Mail Jenner "was lovely and quite timid which is what made her even more attractive.'
Aimee has a degree from King's College London
Aimee has brains as well as beauty - she has an undergraduate degree in Religion, Philosophy and Ethics from King's College London.
Her successful career as an influencer actually started during her student days. She told The Daily Mail that her lucrative blog Aimazin began as a hobby.
Aimee gets paid upto £5,000 by brands for an Instagram post
While most Islanders dream of landing the collabs with big brands after being exposed on the show - just look at Molly-Mae - Aimee's already got that nailed. So we guess she can concentrate on finding the man of her dreams now then?
Aimee models for PrettyLittleThing, Boohoo, MissPap, H&M and Reiss to name just a few. She quite often pairs these outfits with a designer handbag.
In an interview with The Daily Mail a few years ago, the influencer revealed that she can command upto £5,000 from big brands just for mentioning them.
She gets sent on holidays for free
So really, that fabulous villa in Majorca is probably pretty average for Aimee.
She's all about female empowerment
From her Instagram bio, which reads "we all wear crowns," to the messages she writes in her posts, Aimee seems to be all about female empowerment and girls lifting each other up.
In one recent post, she wrote: "Hi Queens, this is your Monday reminder no matter how you feel, get up, dress up, show up, glow up and never give up!"
In a photo of her donning a gorgeous powder blue bikini, she wrote: "You glow different when you're not hating, hurting, bitter or messy." We'd have to agree with her there.
Will Aimee continue to be a girl's girl in the villa? Only time will tell as the competition heats up.
Love Island comes to ITV2 on Monday 28th June at 9pm.
