"Guys go really quiet on me and don't text back. One time I went to a party with a guy and he got back with his ex-girlfriend there. I think I attract weirdos."

Describe yourself in three words: "Miss Great Britain."

"This sounds gross, but I can move my hip in and out of the socket. I probably shouldn't say that!"


Malin Andersson

"I had to pay on a date once. I offered, and he said 'okay', which I wasn't really expecting! I'm quite old fashioned, I do like it if a guy pays for the first date at least. Needless to say, I never saw that guy again."

"I was on Take Me Out about four years ago, but I didn't get a date. I think I was too fussy. I kept turning my light off!"

Cara De La Hoyde

"I'm quite loud and say what I think. My world is full of drag queens and big personalities, so I'm not exactly shy."

"I work as a circus performer - I do fire breathing, the aerial hoop, working with snakes. I taught myself how to fire breathe in my back garden when I was 18."

"Physically, I like a guy to be tall, with long hair and tattoos. Think of Jesus mixed with Russell Brand mixed with a pirate."

"I'm on TV once a week on a channel called Studio 66 which is a bit like Babestation where you take phone calls from guys."

"I have a real ankle fetish... You know when a guy has rolled-up trousers with loafers? I have a good look at their ankles."

Sophie Gradon

Sarah Gradon
(ITV)

"I can drink a lot! I'm a Geordie. I wish I could do the splits or get my leg over my head but no, my party trick is just doing shots."

"I used to date Danny Cipriani. Suddenly I was in the papers being called a 'Kelly Brook lookalike', which is nice, as she's stunning!
My relationship with Danny was intense. I fell in absolute lust with him. He bowled me over with charm. He's a very special man. You fall completely in love with him, and I did."

Olivia Buckland

"I can do the crab! Not when I'm out, but if I'm at a house party, I might pop that one out."

Scott Thomas

"I like a natural looking girl. I'm not into fake tan and all that. That's fine for a one night stand but not for a girlfriend."

"I think I'm Michael Jackson when I dance, I've got this move like a sidestep. Girls tend to laugh at me, not with me - it's not cool but I don't care."

Tom Powell

Tom Powell
(ITV)

"I talk to my granddad about my love life. He's my hero. He taught me everything he knows. He's with my nan and they're very happy, so he must be doing something right."

"I can make my pecks dance! I can do it to any kind of music but I like R&B. I don't know if it's a turn-on but it makes them laugh."

Nathan Massey

"I don't really like sitting down and chatting, I'm more of a hands-on person."

"A girl has farted in front of me before and I was fully disgusted with it."

"I can make a noise like a dripping tap. I might do it on Love Island and get people to think the air con is dripping. That's a good prank."

"I did once pull a woman in her late 50s. I was in Bournemouth, and there was this hen party, and this woman wouldn't leave us alone. I said I'd take one for the team, got a massive cheer, and took her home for the best two minutes of her life."

Rykard Jenkins

"I am looking for Summer Loving like Danny Zuko."

"I hate it when all girls talk about is how many followers they've got on Twitter. Life's about so much more than that."

"On a girl, I love a good set of legs. It doesn't matter if they're short or long, as long as they're not hairy."

Daniel Lukakis

"I'm not at all superficial, which is weird given the line of work I do - I'm a model. If she's good looking, that's a plus, but I care more about her having a good heart and having similar morals to me."

Javi Shephard

(ITV)

"I spent the night with a girl once and woke up in the morning and tried to slip out of the house. But I fell over my clothes and landed on her piano and woke her up! She was calling out, 'Where are you going, Zeus?' - apparently I'd called myself Zeus for some reason."

"I do have an incredibly large tongue so I usually just whip it out and then people start asking me questions about it."

"I did meet Wayne Rooney once, at a club called Whisky Mist. It was a bit of a weird night. I pretended to be part of his entourage and stole his bottle of vodka and started pouring it in my glass. I ended up in hospital in the morning. I think I drank too much of Wayne's vodka."

Love Island returns to ITV2 later this summer.
