Love Island saw its first dumping on Wednesday and before Shannon's bed could even get cold, two new bombshells are set to enter the Villa.

One of them is 21-year-old bricklayer Liam Reardon from Wales.

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

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

Liam loves the great outdoors

Much like Jake, Liam likes spending time outdoors and regularly posts photos of himi hiking in all weathers across the Brecon Beacons, which of course, will be local to him.

So it looks like whoever partners up with him will need to like the great outdoors too.

When asked why he's going on Love Island, Liam said: "I'm after a new partner. It's been a while since I've had a girlfriend. I'm struggling to find one."

He does boxing

Several of the girls in the Villa said they like a guy who keeps in shape - and Liam ticks that box. He's a regular gym-goer and trains as a boxer.

It looks as though he's working towards competing with that too. His trainer said in an Instagram story "At 6ft6 he'll be making some noise in the heavyweight division soon enough."

Liam has more than 9,400 followers on Instagram - although we're sure that number will rocket once he makes his debut on Love Island.

While Liam is cracking on in the Villa, his social media account is being run by his sister, Niamh.

Who has Liam got his eyes on?

When asked who might be his type on paper in the show, Liam said: "I think Kaz is really good looking and has a great personality. I'm looking forward to getting to know her. And Chloe - I like her confidence and I'm intrigued to see what she's about."

Kaz is currently coupled up with Toby and the two enjoyed their first date together during Wednesday's episode. Chloe is newly coupled up with Aaron. But could their heads be turned?

"I am competitive to a certain extent," said Liam. "If I'm in competition for a female, I want to try my best, but I won't go too far out of my way. If she liked you that much she wouldn't have to make a choice."

Watch out Toby and Aaron!

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