Contestants Revealed For ITV's New Love Island Style Dating Show The Cabins
The new series sees singletons ditch the apps and throw out the rulebook as they go to extreme measures to try and find true love.
From the moment they meet, the couples immediately move in together. Their date begins in their very own exclusive log cabins, complete with simmering hot tubs and set in beautiful surroundings within the UK.
Nestled together in their intimate cabins, the singletons will have quality time to really get to know their date. From heartfelt moments or declarations of love, to awkward silences and difficult dating conversations, viewers will be able to follow all the antics and find out if the sparks fly or quickly fizzle out.
Having made it through the first 24 hours they then have to decide if they would like to spend more time together - or call it a day and walk away.
Here's who's retreating to The Cabins for 2021...
1. Abraham, 21, London
The Architecture student from East London is looking for a girlfriend and bestie all wrapped into one following a particularly "unfortunate" love life.
"It would be nice to just relax and have someone to be my partner, my best friend, my girlfriend at the same time," he said. "I've seen it happen to a lot of my friends, I don't know when it's going to happen to me. "
2. Holly, 23, Staffordshire
The multi-talented cabin crew, make-up artist and influencer is turning to The Cabins as she feels her love-life is an absolute "shambles."
Despite having a few celebs sliding into her DMs on Instagram (though she won't name names), Holly thinks she's still single due to her bubbly persona.
"My friends and family would say it's because I'm quite a big personality," she said. "I'm timid at first, but when you've met me, I do come out of my shell a lot. People don't expect that. People do get very intimidated by me."
3. Mamudo, 23, Liverpool
The footballer and coach, who admits to having been catfished on a previous date, is looking for a more natural way to build a relationship rather than app dating. And he already has his ideal woman in mind.
"I like them to be humble and open," Mamudo says. "Know their worth, but more chilled and laid back and just enjoy the moment rather than everything being about them."
4. Robyn, 26, Doncaster
The Sales Executive hasn't had a partner for four years, and while she has enjoyed her single status, she is looking for a romantic guy who is "up for a laugh".
"Being in a relationship is a big thing to me," Robyn explains. "My mum would say I'm picky, but why shouldn't you be? It's got to be the right guy, hasn't it?"
5. Jess, 24, South Wales

6. Sarah, 26, Blackpool

"I've also had seven names covered up on my arse," she says. "I was only like 18...again I did that as a bet. I've had that covered now. And I have 'me' tattooed on my wedding ring finger, as I believe you should love yourself first."

8. Sofia, 21, Kent
