Casa Amor is back and you know what that means—10 new faces, all vying to turn the heads of our OG lineup. Among them is new boy Ouzy See, who has a rather flirtatious past with one of the girls. 

In case you missed it (here's how to watch Love Island UK if you need to catch up), Casa Amor has made its dramatic return and brought about a mini-reunion between Ella Thomas and fellow model and Edinburgh local, Ouzy. It turns out the pair have not only worked together previously but also almost dated. Uh oh— bad news for Ty!

So, as we prepare for what promises to be a very dramatic week, packed with memorable Love Island moments, here's the lowdown on Ouzy.

Who is Ouzy See on 'Love Island'?

Ousman See, AKA 'Ouzy', is a footballer, model and tradesman from Edinburgh.

In his Love Island interview with ITV2, he described himself as 'very confident' adding: "I’m also mixed race with a Scottish accent which you don't see very often so I’d like to think I’m a little different from your average guy." 

As for who he's interested in, he listed Ella—revealing that he already knows her (eek!)—before adding: "I also like Leah, she’s incredibly pretty, I’m looking forward to getting to know her more. Kady interests me too, I watched her on Series 2 and she was a bit of a firecracker."

He's also got a few predictions on who could be swayed from their couples over the course of Casa: "I don’t think any couples are strong. The strongest is probably Ella and Tyrique but only because they have been together since the start but I think with the new boys going in, it will give Ella a chance to get to know someone else.

"All the boys seem ready for their heads to be turned. Mitch, Sammy and Tyrique especially."

How old is Ouzy on Love Island UK?

Ouzy is 28 years old, making him the oldest islander to cross the villa's threshold in season 10.

What's Ouzy's Instagram?

If you were hoping to give Ouzy a cheeky follow, you can find him at @ouzysee.

Remember though, while the islanders are in the villa their social media accounts are paused, with Love Island's social media rules coming into place for season nine.

How does Ouzy know Ella on 'Love Island'?

Before entering the Villa, Ouzy shared that he's actually met Ella on numerous occasions (they also follow each other on Instagram, just saying). 

"I’ve met Ella before on a photoshoot we were both working on and also on nights out in Edinburgh, although nothing has ever happened between us", he said. 

After his arrival, we also saw the pair sit down for a one-on-one chat where Ella revealed that she used to fancy him and that they almost went on a date. So far, Ella and Ty are the only couple that has said they're 'closed off' so this could make for a very dramatic reunion...if he doesn't also find a new connection amongst the Casa girls, that is.
