Love Island is returning to ITV2 this summer and we all want to know who's in it. ITV hasn't confirmed anything yet, but we've had a look at the rumoured contestants - who, if they aren't in it, should be.
It's thought Love Island series 7 will start at the end of June, with a source telling MailOnline that the production crew are flying out to Majorca on 20th June. And the fan page Love Island Reactions predicts the show will start on Monday 28th June - so really not long to wait if that's true.
The show usually airs earlier on in June, but current travel restrictions have led to it being pushed back a bit.
Here's who we think will be in Love Island this year.
Rumours about Gordon Ramsay's 21-year-old daughter, Holly, appearing on the show have been on and off.
What we do know is the model is a favourite of the Love Island producers.
She had previously denied rumours about appearing in the 2021 line-up, but it's reported she's cancelled some modelling work this summer... coincidence?
Zack Chugg, second-year dental student, has been added to the rumoured cast for Love Island 2021. The 21-year-old is currently studying at the University of Leeds.
Zack shares fitness, weight loss and skincare advice with his 6,900 Instagram followers after completing his own weightloss journey. His healthy fat loss-inducing meals certainly beat the student go-to of beans on toast!
Zack is a fitness model and ambassador for MyFit UK. Leeds Live have reported that Zack will be entering the villa a few episodes in - no doubt turning a few heads in the process.
With almost 85,000 followers on Instagram, fashion influencer Aimee-Rose Francis, 29, has already got quite the status.
The self-proclaimed digital creator owns her own jewellery brand and says on her website she enjoys "long lunches and champagne cocktails" - so she'll do well on those cozy little Love Island picnics.
A Love Island source told The Sun: "Producers are nearly there with their cast and Aimee is top of their list.
Watch out ladies, there could be another hot doctor in the Love Island villa if this rumour is true.
Toluwa Adepeju is a junior doctor working on the frontline. He uses his 11,600-strong Instagram following to advocate COVID-19 safety (and kindly share photos of his fine physique).
Back in season 4, we had the lovely and popular Dr Alex George looking for love and although he wasn't successful in the show, he's been bossing it on TV and social media ever since. He's done a lot of campaigning around mental health awareness and has appeared on TV several times to talk about the pandemic.
An ITV2 source told The Sun: "He's led from the very front - in hospital and online, educating people of the risks and the need to get vaccinated.
"He is a perfect pick."
Could Adepeju be Love Island's next nice guy?
Aerial dancer and fire-eater, Alexis Bailey, is another contender for the show. The 21-year-old has 15.8 thousand followers on Instagram and is no stranger to strutting her stuff in the bare minimum. She's also got a steamy OnlyFans account.
"She loves sex and is always talking about it. She's very open about it but is incredibly likeable and loves to party," a source told The Sun.
"There are no limits as far as she is concerned and she very much wears her heart on her sleeve. It's fair to say she will bring some heat to the villa."
"He's had video meetings with the casting team and everyone is very excited at the prospect of having him on the show," the source added. But nothing has been confirmed by ITV2 yet.
Self-proclaimed "plant-based human," Alisha LeMay, was a contender for the Winter Love Island cast, according to the MailOnline.
"Alisha is exactly the type of contestant ITV2 are looking for - she's gorgeous, body confident and isn't afraid to be herself," an insider told MailOnline." She already works as an influencer and has collaborated with brands like PrettyLittleThing, Missguided and ASOS, which all becomes part in parcel of being a Love Island star," they added.
"She's an advocate of body positivity and often admits on her Instagram to never wanting to be perfect, which is an important message to young viewers of the show too."
Recruitment consultant, James Price, is no stranger to flirting with Love Islanders; he's already tried chatting up season 5's Lucie Donlan, according to MailOnline.
Originally from Worcester, the 23-year-old is described as a 'Chelsea party boy' by the papers, who tried to crack on with Lucie before she went on the ITV2 show.
A source told MailOnline that "James is in final talks with producers and they're really keen on signing him this year."
"'He's cheeky, fun and handsome - and will be a sure-fire hit with the female contestants, while he's also on the lookout for his dream girl." the source added. "Lucie Donlan is his type on paper, he's even tried to pursue her in the past."
We'll have to wait and see who fits the bill for James.
Like Alisha, Ellis was also rumoured to be in the Winter Love Island , which never went ahead. The model, who's worked with GymShark, "can't wait to get in the villa," according to a source who spoke to The Sun about his Winter Love Island appearance last year.
"Ellis is exactly what the show is looking for and he ticks all the boxes - he will make great television," the source added at the time.
Fashion model Jay Munro - another rumoured Winter Love Island contender - has been described as the next Tommy Fury on the show.
"Jay will be the one all the girls will be chasing," a source told The Daily Star. "Just like Tommy Fury, he's a sportsman, in good shape and has dreamy looks. The brown-haired hunk has already proven his chops on TV."
None of these contestants have been confirmed by ITV2 yet, but we'll let you know once we're told more. Hopefully they won't keep us waiting for too long.
