After Love Islanders saw the first dumping of the season on Wednesday, two new bombshells are set to enter the Villa.

One of them is 23-year-old Chuggs Wallis from Surrey.

Chuggs will be stirring things up in the Villa with Liam Reardon, as they make an entrance on Thursday's episode.

Here are a few things we know about the new Islander.

Chuggs sells 'booby beanie hats'

It's not what it sounds like. Chuggs owns his own customised hats business called Booby Buckets, which sells reversible bucket hats, "dad" hats, "booby beanies" and sweatshirts, among other apparel.

"Our designs are inspired by the natural world and our logo is based on the Blue Footed Booby Bird found only on the Galapagos Islands. This quirky creature has striking electric blue feet & a real sense of individuality making it the perfect face for our brand," it says on the website.

Chuggs' brand was launched in lockdown last year and it's now partnered with the Galapagos Conservation Trust, which works to protect wildlife, including the Booby bird, in the Galapagos.

Chuggs went to Oxford Brookes University

Chuggs studied Business Management at Oxford Brookes University between 2016-2020. He said the last year of his University experience has been ruined by the pandemic, and he's ready to get back out there and start living life to the full again.

"I'm only 23 but I'm scared of aging," he said. "Especially as half of my last year of uni was taken away and we had so many fun plans. With Covid and the pandemic, I feel like I've missed a year of my youth, so I'm really gagging to get it all back - make the most of it."

He likes to travel

From Canada to South Africa, Chuggs clearly enjoys the jet-setting life.

His Instagram profile is filled with highlights from his trips and if we remember correctly, some of our female Islanders are looking for a travel buddy - could Chuggs be it?

Chuggs has more than 4,700 followers on Instagram, but we're certain that number is going to rocket once he makes himself known on Love Island.

His brother Austin and mate Jake will be in charge of his social media while he cracks on in the Villa.

Who has Chuggs got his eye on?

Chuggs is looking for a serious relationship in the villa. Speaking about going on the show, he said: "I need someone to be my best mate."

"I need someone who is going to muck in with my brothers, my family. I've got a mate who has a girlfriend, she plays rugby, golf.. everything with us. She's great, she gets involved. I want something like that."

So who could fit the bill for Chuggs?

"I'd probably say from first impressions Liberty, Chloe and Faye," he said.

Liberty's coupled up with Jake at the moment and the two seem smitten, but who's to say her head can't be turned.

Chloe coupled up with Aaron on Wednesday's episode, leaving Shannon single and dumped from the Island.

And if it's Faye Chuggs wants to get to know, he'll have to compete with Brad. But by the looks of it, Faye could already be pieing Faye after Wednesday's heated chat.

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
