Love Island fans are set to be treated to plenty of excitement and drama in the coming weeks as Casa Amor makes its long awaited return.

The couples from the original line up will be divided and the boys leave their partners to move to a new villa with six brand new bombshells, while the girls are also joined by six new male singletons.

Casa Amor acts as the ultimate relationship test on the show and over the years it has inspired some of the most dramatic recoupling scenes in Love Island history such as Andrew Le Page recoupling with Coco Lodge and Josh Denzel recoupling with Kaz Crossley.

The new arrivals have a short window of opportunity to make their mark on the show and secure their place in the main villa.

Here we take a look at all the new arrivals you can expect to see in Casa Amor.
