Not again! No Irish faces in Love Island line-up

From Lifted Entertainment

It’s that time of the year again – Love Island time.

With the reality TV world thirsty for drama, memes, and a load of fast fashion collabs, the return of the dating show couldn’t have come at a better time.

This year’s contestants are being revealed today, and yet again, they’ve failed to introduce an Irish islander.

However, we’re holding out hope that they will introduce some Irish faces as bombshells a la Maura Higgins. We mean, where else will they get the craic from?

Take a look at the lineup so far!

Patsy Field

Name: Patsy Field
Age: 29
From: Orpington
Occupation: Office Administrator

Why Love Island and why now?

I’m finally ready to find a sexy man and I think Love Island may just have some nice hunky guys for me. I think now is the right time as I’ve got a few greys so I need to bag a man sooner rather than later.

If there was one thing you’d want your new fellow Islanders to know about you, what would it be?

I’ve got something very special about me which is my disability, it’s a condition I was born with called Erb’s Palsy. It doesn’t define who I am, but it makes me a little different, although I’ve learnt to get on with it and it’s never held me back.

How would friends/family describe you?

My friends would say that I’m the loudest person in the group, I’m the one who’s always up for doing a dare, they’d say I was the life and soul of the party. My family would say that I’m bossy and that it’s always my way or the highway, they’d say I rule the roost.

Ronnie Vint

Name: Ronnie Vint
Age: 27
From: South East London
Occupation: 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. Lookswise, I like blondes with nice boobs but am partial to a brunette too.

What’s your claim to fame?

Bradley Dack 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.

Nicole Samuel

Name: Nicole Samuel
Age: 24
From: Aberdare
Occupation: 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 having 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.

Munveer Jabbal

Name: Munveer Jabbal
Age: 30
From: Surbiton, Surrey
Occupation: 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.

Samantha Kenny

Name: Samantha Kenny
Age: 26
From: Liverpool
Occupation: 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 go down to London as I love the boys down south. Tall, dark and cockney is my type.

Ciaran Davies

Name: Ciaran Davies
Age: 21
From: Pencoed, South Wales
Occupation: Surveyor

Why Love Island and why now?

It’s the perfect time for me, I feel like I’m mature enough for something serious with the right girl.

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

Obviously looks but humour is a big thing for me, I’m a bit of a wind up so I want a girl who can give it back. Loyalty is another one for me, I think that’s the most important thing to look for in a relationship.

What’s your claim to fame?

When I was in Malia on a boys’ holiday I pretended to be Liam Reardon from series 7 to get into a club because they wouldn’t let us in. It worked and we ended up getting a private booth and free drinks all night.

Mimii Ngulube

Name: Mimii Ngulube
Age: 24
From: Portsmouth
Occupation: Mental Health Nurse

Why Love Island and why now?

The pool in Portsmouth is not giving. I’ve tried dating, speaking to people on social media and it just hasn’t been successful. Applying was a spontaneous thing, I didn’t expect to get here!

What do you think you’ll bring to the Villa?

I’m a girls’ girl. My girls are my rocks and I’m theirs so I’ll be a good friend as well as going in there to find a man. I like dressing up so I’ll bring style, and I’d like to think I’m quite funny so I’ll make people laugh. Bringing honesty as well – I’m good at picking up on people’s personality traits and side-eyeing those who might be a liar.

How would friends/family describe you?

Loving, supportive, considerate, empathetic, loyal, and I’ve got a big heart!

Sam Taylor

Name: Sam Taylor
Age: 23
From: Chesterfield
Occupation: Hair Stylist

Why Love Island and why now?

At this point in my life, I just want the opportunity to find a real connection with someone. I’ve been looking for that connection for quite some time but I’ve never really found it, I’m hoping I find that spark in the Villa.

What makes you a catch?

My personality and chat, I’d like to think I’ve got lots of depth and substance which should hopefully help me out when trying to find a connection.

If there was one thing you’d want your new fellow Islanders to know about you, what would it be?

I’d say not to judge a book by its cover because how I look compared to what I do for work might not necessarily add up. You wouldn’t look at me as a tall guy covered in tattoos and think that I make girls’ hair look pretty for a living.

Love Island returns on Monday 3rd June at 9pm on Virgin Media Two
