Love Island’s summer season is only a few weeks away and while the cast has yet to be announced, there have been rumours of few faces heading to the villa.

One of the rumoured contestants this year looks very familiar, giving the same vibes as a 2018 bombshell in the form of Zara McDermott.

According to reports from The Daily Mail, Chloe Baker is the latest rumoured contestant eyeing up a summer in the villa.

Chloe was apparently sought after for the recent winter season but it seems ITV producers have kept her on the books for the summer season instead.

The TikTok star already has mounted 17,000 followers on Instagram and a former islander is one of them, Casa Amor 2023 boy Ryan Weekley.

Chloe gives us serious Zara McDermott vibes too, which is never a bad person to be compared to.

But Chloe isn’t the only person rumoured to be heading in this year as MailOnline also reported that Andre Furtado is also on the show’s radar.

An economics graduate and clothing brand entrepreneur, Andre is the co-founder of fashion line Social Kids – impressive if you ask us.

A source reportedly told the publication: “Andre is the perfect Love Island signing… he’s cool, calm, collected, and ready to mingle.

“He knows himself but without being arrogant and producers are hoping his intellect, as well as his creativity and handsome looks will make him a favourite among the females.”

Along with Andre and Chloe, a third person has been rumoured – Molly Marsh.

With 25k followers, the influencer is reportedly in final talks with the show and even toured the villa back in January.

A source told The Sun: “Molly was scouted after visiting the villa in South Africa earlier this year. She was on the tour as an invited guest when she caught the eyes of producers.

“Molly made it clear she would love to be a part of Love Island and she was told to audition. After going through the process, she’s now a shoo-in to fly to Majorca later this month.”

Love Island returns to our screens on June 5th.
