Samantha Kenny

Age: 26

From: Liverpool

Job: Makeup Artist

Why Love Island and why now?

I'm ready to settle down and Love Island is an amazing opportunity to meet someone that isn't from my area. I love a cockney boy so I'm hoping there is one in there for me.

What do you think you'll bring to the villa?

I think I will definitely bring some fire, I'm very opinionated and wear my heart on my sleeve. I'm really bubbly too so I'll definitely have a laugh as well as bringing some scouse glamour.

Why would you say you're single?

I don't get out enough, I work weekends and tend to not go out in Liverpool anymore. If I want a night out I got down to London as I love the boys down south. Tall, dark and cockney is my type.

Munveer Jabbal

Age: 30

From: Surbiton, Surrey

Job: Recruitment Manager

Why Love Island and why now?

London dating hasn't worked out for me. The opportunity to be surrounded by good looking people in a villa under the sun is an absolute no brainer! I'm 30 years old and I need to start thinking seriously about the next step, and what better place.

Why would you say you're single?

I haven't found the right girl, I'm quite picky and have high standards. Dating in London is horrible. You don't know who's single... but now you're putting me in a place where everyone's single so there's no issues around that.

What's your claim to fame?

I'm mates with Spencer Morgan (Piers Morgan's son). We met when I moved to Fulham in 2018.

Nicole Samuel

Age: 24

From: Aberdare

Job: Accounts Manager

What do you think you'll bring to the villa?

My personality is big and I'm pretty out there, I reckon I'll probably have one of the biggest personalities in the villa.

Why would you say you're single?

I've been enjoying single life and the attention of different boys, it's fun. I've enjoyed being able to go on holiday with the girls and not have to worry about someone back home. All the girls are there texting in their room and I'm out till 4 in the morning living my best life.

Tell us something not many people know about you?

I became a world champion dancer in 2011, not many people know that. I was a professional street dancer.

Ronnie Vint

Age: 27

From: South East London

Job: Semi Professional Footballer

Why would you say you're single?

I've had two serious relationships in the past but more recently have enjoyed being single and doing my own thing as I've been focused on my football career. I've got to the age where I want to find the right person I can build a life with.

If you had to pick three of the most important things you look for in a partner what would they be?

I want someone that's family orientated, caring and career minded. Lookwise, I like blondes with nice boobs but am partial to a brunette too.

What's your claim to fame?

Bradley Dock is my best friend and he and Olivia are a big part of my life. I call Olivia my big little sister, she always looks out for me.
