Love Island 2017 has just dropped news of two brand new male Islanders.

Chris Hughes and Jonny Mitchell were unveiled at the end of last night's episode and will enter the villa in tonight's show. In a twist, viewers will vote for which girl the pair should date.


Before then, get to know the new pair below...

Chris Hughes

Love Island 2017: Chris
22-year-old Golf Clothing Ambassador from Gloucestershire

"I think what sets me apart is being a country boy," says Chris. "It gives the girls a different option to what they’re normally used to. I offer a very different background.

"I’m also outgoing with a great personality and I love meeting new people. With my eyes and my smile as well, it could work for me!"

He says of entering the Villa: "I don’t really have any fears. I’m just really excited about the fact that you won’t have any outside communication with anyone, because that’s something you won’t experience ever again in your lifetime.

"I’m sort of embracing dating the more traditional way, without What’s App and your phone. I was brought up to do things traditionally and it’s just a hands on way."



Jonny Mitchell

Love Island 2017: Jonny
26-year-old Business Director from Essex

Jonny says his 'USP' is his lifestyle: "I do a lot of travelling. I pretty much live abroad. Being away from home wouldn’t be a big deal for me."

"I’ve never done anything like this before," Jonny says of joining Love Island, "I’m sure it will be a lot of fun and I want to create new experiences for myself. I’m more doing it for the experience but I’m open to anything that comes from it."

He continues: "I’m from Essex and people come out of a mould, everyone wants to look the same and do the same thing. It’s refreshing to meet different people."


And revealing his Love Island tactics, Jonny adds: "I wouldn’t go for the best looking girl as she’s probably going to leave you when a better looking geezer comes along. I’d go for the less pretty one as they’re likely to latch on and stick with you to the end. I want to be a cut above the rest and not let the testosterone flyaround."

Love Island 2017 airs nightly on ITV2.
