ITV2 Introduces The 'Love Island: Australia' Cast

ITV2 Introduces The 'Love Island: Australia' Cast

For the first time in five years, this summer's Love Island will not go ahead due to coronavirus. However, ITV is airing its Australian version, so we can still get our LI fix!

The show (which was filmed in 2018) will kick off later this month and will air each night on ITV2, hosted by Sophie Monk and narrated by Eoghan McDermott.

We can't wait to get out daily dose of villa drama once again - let's meet the contestants...

Cassidy, a bartender, says her perfect guy would be blonde, tall and with tattoos.

She says she's a country girl at heart and considers her smile to be her best feature. And it seems we could be in for some drama, with Cassidy explaining she's the "kind of girl to go after what [she] wants".

She explained: "I want to find love but I bet I don't as all the guys will be so hot, I'll just want to make out with every single one of them."

When the show was filmed in 2018, she'd been single for two years - and we've got a feeling she could be at the centre of a few dramas in the villa.

"When girls are bitchy and backstabbing I'll definitely pull them up on it. My best features are my butt and my banter. My fantasy man is a tradesman or a rugby player," she said.

Natasha Cherie, 24, from Perth

Beautician Natasha, who says she's previously dated millionaires, says she's looking for a man who'll put her first.

She rates herself an eight or nine out of 10 and explains she has a lot of friends who are guys. Although explaining she'd been on a date every night for two months before entering the villa, she explained she just didn't click with anyone.

Will she find love in the villa?! We can't wait to find out.

'Love Island Australia' Is Coming To ITV2 This Month

"I am quite a flirty person so girls get a bit intimidated as I might be trying to steal their man. When I'm interested in a guy I show that by being a bit mean."

Eden is a prison officer who, in his opinion, can give "a hell of a lap dance".

He says he doesn't care if he's "labelled the bad guy" and is looking for a woman with "big boobs, big booty, all round good body".

Hmm, we reckon he could stir up some trouble!

Justin Lacko, 27, from Melbourne

Party animal and model Justin says he rubs shoulders with celebrities and reckons he's "pretty good with the ladies".

He is looking to settle down, however, and wants to be married within the next five years.

"My dream lady would be someone who understands me as much as I understand her, she should take a lot of pride in herself too," he said, adding that long fingernails are the ultimate turn off.

Josh Moss, 25, from Sydney

Sports Administrator Josh was single for around 18 months before entering the villa.

He describes himself as funny, cheeky, naughty, sexy and spontaneous.

"My mouth has got me into a lot of trouble in the past, girls either want to kiss me or slap me, or sometimes both if they're into it and I'll roll with that, I don't mind a bit of kinkiness," he said.

Grant Crapp, 22 from Canberra

Tradesman Grant is looking for his future wife and wants to settle down "sooner rather than later".

He said: "I get p*ssed off when people question me about finding love at such a young age. Hopefully I'll find my future wife on Love Island."

Aw, we're rooting for you, Grant!

Just like the UK version, the series sees a bunch of hopeful Aussie singles jet off on the ultimate summer of love, leaving the Australian winter behind them, as they set up home in a seriously plush villa in Mallorca.

As the channel says: "Playing the definitive game of love, the Aussie Islanders will get to know each other in the hope of finding romance.

"But as new bombshells arrive on the Island, which couples will stand the test of time and make it all the way to the final, and have a chance of bagging the $50,000 cash prize?"

Love Island Australia starts later this month and airs nightly on ITV2.
