The 'Love Island' lovebirds are set to have their loyalties tested when they are split up during a shocking new twist on the ITV2 show and 11 new contestants
'Love Island' is introducing 11 new contestants.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that the ITV2 reality series will be splitting up the couples and sending half of the group to a far away luxury villa, but their loyalties will be further tested when the fresh set of hot arrivals descend on the two groups.
A source said: "They're going to split all the boys and girls up so they'll be in separate accommodation.
"Even more newbies are going to be sent in this week to shake things up. It's going to be the biggest thing to happen to the show."
According to the Mirror Online, male contestants Chris Hughes, Marcel Somerville, Kem Cetinay, Dom Lever and Jonny Mitchell will be joined by Page 3 model Danielle Sellers, Chyna, Ellisha-Jade, Amelia, while the females, Montana Brown, Amber Davies, Olivia Attwood, Tyla Carr, Gabby Allen and Camilla Thurlow, will welcome Steve, Marino, Nathan, Craig and Alex.
Two further newbies are yet to be named.
It's thought that the couples who have already formed will be split for at least two days, and producers hope the villas will be far enough away that anything can happen.
The source added: "The secret location is going to be used for two or three days and new girls will be sent into the boys' house to test them, and new boys will go into the girls' house. It's to test the loyalty of current relationships and it's going to be explosive.
"Because of the villa's remote location, the second house will be in the same town but is far enough away that both groups can get up to whatever they want."
Meanwhile, Simon Searles was dumped from the 'Love Island' villa in Wednesday (28.06.17) show and said he was "gutted" to go.
Speaking after his exit, Simon said: "I'm a bit gutted to be leaving but it's been a wicked experience. I've loved every minute and I am happy with the decisions I've made."
And now Simon has left, he wants to see Tyla make a go of her romance with Jonny Mitchell.
He added: "Tyla and Jonny are in there now, they're a couple, everyone knows it. And they better make a go of it otherwise I will have left for absolutely nothing so I'm rooting for Jonny and Tyla."
