21-year-old Brummie, Liberty Poole, is the second female contestant to be confirmed for Love Island 2021.
She joins Sharon Gaffka, Aaron Francis, Liberty Poole, Hugo Hamond, Shannon Singh, Jake Cornish, Kaz Kamwi, Brad McClelland, Chloe Burrows, Toby Aromolaran, Faye Winter, and late arrivals Liam Reardon and Chuggs Wallis in the Villa this year.
Here are a few things we know about the blonde bombshell.
Liberty is a marketing student
She's half-way through her degree in Marketing at the University of Birmingham. She works part-time as a waitress when she's not studying.
She likes a cheeky chappy
Liberty said cheeky chappies are her type on paper. She likes "tall, alpha male, confident" types, but worries that "that's always usually combined with player types, which is where I go wrong."
"I've never had that nice, happy relationship so I think it will be nice and something for me to experience," said waitress and marketing student Liberty.
She's a girls' girl
Liberty said that she's looking forward to having new gal pals from the villa, as well as hopefully meeting the man of her dreams.
"Obviously I want the best summer ever because we have been in lockdown for a year so it would be nice to go away and enjoy the sun and make friends as well," she said.
"I'm excited, I'm a bit of a social butterfly so I love to meet new people. I'm a girls' girl as well so I can't wait for the girly friendships. It's going to be fun!"
She plays hard to get
While some girls don't mind making the first move, Liberty appears to be a traditionalist and likes the guy to do the grafting.
That's according to one of her tweets, where she wrote: "Do I like you yes
Am I gonna message you no."
Perhaps being in the cilla will change her ways.
She's already using the Love Island lingo
From "cracking on" to "grafting" and the classic "I got a text!", the lingo which has been adopted through the Love Island generations has evolved into an iconic part of the show.
And it looks like Liberty is well-rehearsed. In a tweet earlier this year, she wrote: "As if I just tried to shoot my shot and asked a lad to fix my light in my house and his reply was "get some ladders " I'm officially retired."
'Shoot my shot' is a Love Island term for going after somebody you like. Let's hope she's not serious about going into retirement!
What is Liberty's Instagram?
Liberty has more than 22,000 followers on Instagram and you can follow her at @libertypoolex.
Love Island comes to ITV Hub on Monday 28th June at 9pm. The episodes are made available on BritBox the following day.
