As Love Island fans eagerly await the debut of new bombshell Antigoni in tonight's (22 June) episode, people are just discovering the newest Islander has a famous ex.
It is not unusual for Islanders to have a well-known family member or ex-partner prior to entering the villa. In the current series we have Gemma Owen, the 19-year-old daughter of footballer Michael Owen, for instance. Her ex, Jacques O'Neill is also taking part in the current series, too.
It turns out that Antigoni's ex-boyfriend is Jack Fowler, who was also a bombshell in the 2018 edition of Love Island.
Mail Online reports that Antigoni dated the 26-year-old 'for a few months' but their relationship 'fizzled out'.
Antigoni’s entrance was teased at the very end of Tuesday (21 June) evening’s episode of the behemoth ITV2 dating show.
The 26-year-old singer from London was seen strutting into the villa before reclining on a sun lounger.
Viewers also caught a glimpse at the shocked reactions of the boys and girls upon Antigoni’s entrance, with Jay Younger audibly gasping 'Whoa!'
Antigoni has revealed she has ‘been single for almost a year and a half’ and is heading into the villa to have a ‘different’ experience.
“My goal has been to have as many different experiences as possible,” she said. “I really just want to say ‘yes’ to things. Why not? It’ll be fun. I’m a Cypriot girl and I love being in the sun. I’ve got nothing to lose!”
Just like several Islanders who came before her, including Paige Thorne, Antigoni said she will bring ‘positive energy’ to the villa.
She revealed her ick is someone who is stingy. “It’s not about money but I think being stingy is a character trait and it coincides with someone who is quite selfish with their time.”
Gemma is not the only Islander who has a famous parent; Antigoni’s mum is the well-known chef Tonia Buxton, who is a regular guest on Sunday Brunch.
Tonia has also hosted the Discovery Channel & Living series My Greek Kitchen and My Cypriot Kitchen.
Tonia reacted to the news of her daughter joining Love Island on Instagram and it appears she had no idea her daughter was heading to the villa.
She wrote: “I can not believe that my @antigoni is in the Love Island Villa, she mentioned she would be sunbathing this week I didn’t think she meant in Mallorca!
“We are all so excited for you and know you will be amazing! You have always been an island girl, so I know you will fit right in!
“Hoping you all love and support my girl, I know she will make us proud!
“Tune in to my stories every night where I will be commentating the show, or trying to!”
Love Island airs tonight at 9:00pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub.
