Love Island's new bombshell Ella Barnes already has history with Tyrique Hyde
| Last updated
Love Island fans are set for another explosive episode tonight as new bombshell, Ella Barnes, has revealed she has a history with Tyrique Hyde.
Viewers will recall that Tyrique, 24, has had a rather tumultuous on-off situation with Ella Thomas, 23, with whom he is currently coupled.
The situation between Tyrique and Ella reached new levels of drama this week following Ella’s return from Casa Amor with her old flame Ouzy See, 28.
But after trying to make it work with Ouzy, Ella is back in a couple with Tyrique and while the pair have seemingly made amends after Tyrique had a meltdown over Ella exploring things with Ouzy, this could all change…
New Ella, 23, who is a championship dancer and model from Kent, is due to make an arrival on Thursday (13 July) as a bombshell.
Speaking in an interview with ITV before heading into the villa, she said: "I’m excited to go into the Villa because I feel like I’ll bring a lot of spice and drama.
"I’m open to getting to know all the boys. At the moment, everyone is happy in their couples but I plan on going in there to shake things up.
"I have a feeling I could make a few boys’ heads turn, especially Tyrique because we have history."
The new bombshell also hasn’t ruled out pursuing Tyrique.
When asked about who she’ll couple up with, new Ella said: “Mitch is cute, I also have a tendency to go for footballers so Scott and Tyrique are options too."
However, the model has claimed she doesn’t want to create a love triangle, explaining: "I’m going to go in there and chat to every single boy whilst keeping my cards very close to my chest.
"I don’t want to be in a love triangle so I’m going to put myself first. Whoever puts me first and makes me a priority is the boy that I will choose."
Ella isn't the only bombshell heading into the villa, following the savage dumping of Catherine Agbaje and Elom Ahlijah-Wilson. She will be joined by new boy Josh Brocklebank, 26.
"I’m going to go in there and be myself. I don’t think Sammy and Jess are that strong, so I hope to make a big impression on Jess when I arrive as she’s someone I’d definitely like to explore a connection with," he said.
Josh continued: "I’m most attracted to Jess and Kady. Personality wise, I think I’d be a great match for Jess. She’s so bubbly and has similar energy to me.
"Kady is also beautiful, she’s a similar age to me and seems to know what she wants which I think is really attractive."
Love Island airs every night at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
