Three Irish contestants are set to shake things up in Casa Amor on this week’s Love Island.

The Islanders will have their relationships put to the test with the return of the infamous Casa Amor where the boys or girls will move out of the villa and meet six new singletons, but the luck of the Irish may not be on their side this time around.

Meanwhile, six more prospects will move into the original villa to tempt the Islanders.

Among the bombshells that have been confirmed to cause chaos in Casa Amor are three contestants hailing from the Emerald Isle, the first Irish contestants to appear on the series so far.

First up is Salma Naran, a 20-year-old model and influencer from Dublin, who fans on Twitter are describing as an absolute “babe.”

When asked why she signed up for the show, the Irish beauty said: “I’ve never been in love. What better place to have a tunnel vision and really finding your one? It’s the perfect atmosphere, you don’t have the outside world distractions.

“It looks like time moves fast in there in a good way – it’s like, do you actually like me or not? In the real world it’s so wishy-washy. With this, it’s just, you need to know.”

Also in the lineup is 28-year-old Kaila Troy, a Dublin-born DJ.

She said: “My friends would say I’m very energetic. Never got into drinking, was never my thing, but I’d be the one up all night still and they’d be falling asleep.

“They’d say I was very outgoing and hardworking for sure. What I want I go and get it. Independent, too. And caring and loving.”

The final Irish bombshell is Matthew MacNabb, a 26-year-old strategic marketing consultant from Belfast.

He said: “My family would describe me as very relaxed and laid back, positive and optimistic. And my friends would describe me as very adventurous and very positive.”

When asked why he signed up for the show, Matthew said: “The main thing is the adventure, it seems like a really fun thing to do.”

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media One and Virgin Media Player.
