We've got a text! After a long wait, the Love Island line-up 2021 is finally here, and naturally, we're beyond excited to get to know the hot new singletons we'll be investing all of our time into this summer. 

ITV has confirmed the full official cast for this year's highly anticipated installment of the hit dating show. There has been endless speculation about who we'll be seeing on our screens... and now that the wait is finally over.

So far, we know that we can expect Love Island 2021 to start on Monday, June 28 at 9 pm on ITV2. We also know that host, Laura Whitmore, and the 'voice of the show', Iain Stirling, will be returning to guide us through the summer of love. But who will be entering the villa? 

Prepare yourselves, and get ready to meet our 2021 singletons...

Sharon Gaffka, 25, is a beauty queen turned civil servant from Oxford. She won Miss International United Kingdom, 2018 and now works in the Department of Transport.

According to the Independent, she studied law at university and is an ambassador for the Young Women's Trust. As a very intellectual woman, she's looking for a man who matches her and, ideally, who is taller than her.

Aaron is a 24-year-old model and VIP party host. He works in London and has reportedly worked on high-profile events including Princess Eugenie's and Beatrice's weddings. 

He's looking for someone who is passionate about what they do. He said to Digital Spy: "You can tell when someone is speaking about something and they are actually smiling while they are talking. I love that." 

We're already betting he'll be popular in the villa.

Liberty Poole

Blonde bombshell and singleton number three, Liberty Poole is 21 years old—the youngest islander so far. She's a Nando's waitress and a marketing student from Birmingham and describes herself as a "social butterfly."

Liberty's looking for a "cheeky chappy," but not someone who's a player. She also doesn't want someone who just wants to use her Nando's discount. #Couplegoals! 

Hugo Hammond

Our second guy jetting off to Majorca, Spain is 24-year-old Hugo. He's a secondary school PE teacher from Hampshire.

He plays cricket for England's Physical Disability team after being born with a clubfoot. He saw Love Island as the perfect opportunity to get back into the dating pool after lockdown—we feel you, Hugo.

Shannon Singh, 22, is a Scottish lass and glamour model turned social media influencer. She already has over 100k followers on Instagram and a YouTube channel. 

A self-proclaimed party girl and looking for someone who's got a good personality and likes to have fun, Shannon was sadly the first islander to be dumped from the island...

Jake Cornish, 24, is a water engineer from Weston-Super-Mare. He's got tattoos, bright blue eyes, and biceps to spare. He's looking for a loyal girl and was recently in a long-term relationship.

This West Country lad is into blondes (could he be Liberty's cheeky chap?) and wants someone he can have fun with. Although he's had a long relationship, he has hinted he likes to have fun when he's single.

Kaz Kamwi

Essex beauty Kaz Kamwi is a 26-year old fashion blogger, looking for her "Prince Charming."

She has a popular Instagram and TikTok, and The Mirror reports that she's a Birmingham University graduate. She has said she wants to start a family by 30 and is "praying for a good man" in the villa.

Brad McClelland

Brad, 26, has been single for two years, has never had a date, and is apparently living with his nan—if anyone needs to be in the line-up, it’s this guy.

He’s a laborer from Northumberland, who described himself as laid back, easy-going, and likes meeting new people. He’s also said his celeb crushes are former islander Zara McDermot and Megan Fox, so we can safely assume brunettes are likely his type. Though any girl taking on Brad will need to win over his nan.

Chloe Burrows

Next up is financial services marketing exec, Chloe Burrows. She’s 25, from Bicester, and looking for someone with a good "build" who is, most importantly, funny. She said she’s very outgoing and loud and needs someone like that—she could never date someone quiet.

 Toby Aromolaran

Toby Aromolaran is a 22-year-old semi-pro football player from Essex. He's never been in a relationship and is hoping Love Island can find him one. He describes himself as optimistic, responsible, and a fun guy to have on a night out.

He’s been playing football since he was six and is in love with the game. Fingers crossed he finds a fellow football fan in the villa.

 Faye Winter

Devon’s very own Faye is 26 and a letting manager. She told the Independent that she likes to live her life "as Selling Sunset as possible." She’s giving off big diva, "main character energy," and we’re so here for it.  

We're so excited to see what they get up to in the villa, bring on the drama, challenges, and re-couplings!
