Love Island fans can’t get over resemblance between new bombshell and past islander

Katy Brennan

She’s back?

After two islanders were sent packing their bags last night, bombshell Antigoni Buxton is set to enter the Love Island villa tonight.

The 26-year-old Greek singer says she’s looking for new experiences to spread her “positivity energy” to the others.

However, fans were quick to notice the newbie reminded them of someone who’d been in the villa before – season five’s Lucie Rose Donlan.

Unlike Lucie, who was known for causing her fair share of drama in the villa, Antigoni isn’t too keen to step on toes – but she admitted she will have to do whatever necessary to get to the person she likes.

“In life generally, I am quite competitive – I get really serious over Christmas Day Monopoly,” she said.

“It’s not my intention to tread on anyone’s toes but if I feel the energy from somebody and that connection then in a very open and honest way, I will explore that but I’ll be transparent with everyone in the situation.

“I won’t know who I’m feeling until I get in there – I need to meet somebody in person and see their energy and vibe.

“I’ve been single for almost a year and a half and for the whole of the last year my goal has been to have as many different experiences as possible. I really just want to say ‘yes’ to things. Why not? It’ll be fun. I’m a Cypriot girl and I love being in the sun. I’ve got nothing to lose!”

When asked what makes her a catch, she said: “When I’m into somebody, I’m very much all about them. My culture is a very open, generous culture and I like to think I carry that trait as a girlfriend. I really put 100% into somebody when I like them. I would also like that back!”

Love Island airs tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media Two and Virgin Media Player.
