Meet All The Contestants Of Love Island‘s Winter Season

Obsessed with both reality television and romance? If so, you’ve probably already heard of Love Island, the dating series that since its 2015 premiere, has become an international sensation.

On Love Island, a group of very attractive singles is flown out to a gorgeous island, where they’ll stay in a huge villa. The islanders pair up amongst themselves, but before they can fully crack on, their relationships are tested by the weekly introduction of thirsty new cast members. Because the show happens in real time, audiences are able to vote their least favourite islanders off of the island each week, and the last couple standing wins £50,000.


After a tumultuous fifth season, Love Island is back for a new winter season, premiering on ITV2 on 12 January.

The show welcomes a brand new host (say hi to Laura Whitmore) and will take place in sunny South Africa instead of the Mediterranean island of Mallorca. ITV2 just announced the winter season’s lineup, and from the looks of it, we’re in for a wild ride.

From identical twins to a real-life aristocrat, season six promises to live up to the show's legacy of pure, unadulterated chaos, and it would be an understatement to say that I'm absolutely chuffed to meet each and every one of them.

Ahead, the cast of Love Island's winter series.

Shaughna Phillips, 25

Don't be fooled by this islander's Instagram page. Yes, she may be an influencer with over 10,000 followers, but that isn't her day job. Shaughna works as a Democratic Services Officer, providing administrative and managerial support for the London City council.

Connor Durman, 25

If tattoos and dazzling white teeth are you weakness, get ready to stan this guy. When he's not blinding the masses with his smile (seriously, so bright!), Connor is running his business; his coffee brand Naked Barista is set to launch sometime this month.

Leanne Amaning, 22

Because she hasn't had the easiest time in her love life, this former Miss Ghana contestant says that she signed up for this season of Love Island hoping to open up. Fingers crossed that she'll get her chance.

Nas Majeed, 23

There's not a lot to Nas's Instagram page (which looks like it was made just yesterday for the show), but what I do see, I like a lot. A peng ting indeed.

Eve and Jess Gale, 20

Love Island has found yet another set of twins in Londoners Eve and Jess. Not only do the sisters look alike — but they also have the same celebrity crush, Anthony Joshua. I predict that their similar taste in men might present a major problem in the villa.

Mike Boateng, 24

Any girl looking to link with this police officer from London should be very careful; Mike says his mom will be tuning in to the show every week to make sure he's taking the process seriously.

(If it doesn't work out, Mike, call me!)

Sophie Piper, 21

If you’re super into the world of British pop culture, this islander probably has you doing a double take. That’s because the model and medical PA is the younger sister of Rochelle Humes, a former member of The Saturdays AND S-Club 8!

Sophie shares Rochelle’s looks — wonder if she’s got her sister’s singing talent as well.

Ollie Williams, 23

Love Island's winter season is getting the royal treatment thanks to Ollie Williams. The 23-year-old aristocrat is the heir to a Cornwall estate that's worth millions of dollars. Sharing that little tidbit with the other islanders could very well make Ollie a hot ticket in the villa.

Paige Turley, 22

Paige is a singer with a pretty strong resume behind her; she once competed on Britain's Got Talent in 2012, and she is also the ex-girlfriend of Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi.

Callum Jones, 23,

Callum is the only islander who isn't on social media, so audiences will definitely have to tune in to the show to see what this scaffolder is all about.

Siânnise Fudge, 25

Off top, “best brows in the villa” goes to Siannise, and given her career, it all tracks. The 25-year-old is a beauty consultant in Bristol, so you can expect her to serve face every single day.
