Ahead of the dramatic episode, ITV has announced the six boys who will join the cast of female islanders at the sister villa as the existing couples are separated.

Below are the six new male islanders and a little about them.
Jack Keating, 23 – Social media marketing professional
The most anticipated arrival at Casa Amor this year is another famous offspring, the son of Boyzone star Ronan Keating.
Back in May, Keating reacted awkwardly during an interview Good morning Britain when asked if his son would appear on the reality show.
“He’ll be watching for sure when I’m around,” Jack said in an ITV press release. “He’s buzzing for me, me and my dad are very close, we’re best friends.”
Jack will join Gemma, the child of former England footballer Michael Owen, at the villa.
Josh Samuel Le Grove, 22 – model
The boys from Casa Amor are called in to shake things up, which sounds like this Essex model has no qualms. “I feel like I’m competitive. I would definitely step on someone’s toes, but I wouldn’t necessarily take a huge risk if I didn’t feel them 100%,” he said.
Deji Adeniyi, 25 – Account Manager
Deji from Bedford tells ITV the reason he’s on the show is that “my sex life is amazing but my love life is terrible. I am the master of the failed speech stages. My love life isn’t going right, so one night I decided to apply island of love and now I’m here!”
George Tasker, 23 – Laborer
George from the Cotswolds says: “I love having fun, joking around with the boys and I love making people laugh. I’m an easygoing guy. I’m here to be myself, get loose and flirt.”
Samuel Agbiji, 22 – model
Samuel, from Manchester, told ITV he was a “slow burner” but needed to hurry to connect in the few days that Casa Amor is taking care of islanders.
Billy Brown, 23 – Director of a roofing company
Billy said he’s going to get lucky for the third time after his first two relationships. The director of the Surrey roofing company said: “I’ll bring the wit, the mood, probably kick a few toes, I won’t lie. I don’t have a girl in mind, it’s all of them! I need to get to know them all.”
island of love continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
