22-year-old model from Hastings

Danielle says: "I feel like I’m very laid back, and I’m quite boyish. The rest of the female islanders are very much girls’ girls who love to bitch and gossip. I’m very chilled."

Ellisha-Jade White

Love Island 2017: Ellisha-Jade.

22-year-old entrepreneur from Southampton

Ellisha-Jade says: "I work really hard, and I have my own business, so I don’t rely on other people. Some girls really need a boyfriend, but I’m not one of those girls. I’m really independent and don’t depend on a guy."

Love Island 2017: Amelia

18-year-old Part time Teaching Assistant and Model from Bexley, Kent

Amelia says: "Everyone in there seems very eager, but I am very laid back. I am quite chilled out and I wouldn’t get my hopes up on things. If I fancied a boy I would go for it, but I wouldn’t put pressure on it."

Chyna Ellis

Love Island 2017: Chyna.

22-year-old Fashion Stylist from Essex

Chyna says: "When I was born I looked like a china doll so that’s why they called me that. It’s definitely different. I’ve got a lot to give personality wise. I’m very fun and outgoing and have the looks to match that. It’s a happy medium and best of both worlds."

Shannen McGrath

Love Island 2017: Shannen.
Love Island 2017: Shannen.

23-year-old Dental Nurse and Model from Dublin

Shannen says: "Being Irish makes a big difference. A lot of people have said to me in the past that I have something, that I’ve just got ‘it’. And I don’t know that ‘it’ is but I do think I have something about me, maybe a different aura and personality so it’s not just outer image, I do have a nice inside as well."

Marino Katsouris

Love Island 2017: Marino.
Love Island 2017: Marino.

22-year-old Personal Trainer from Brighton

Marino says: "I’ve got something about me and I’m a pretty big extrovert so I say what’s on my mind. I have the body and the looks at the same time – not that I want to sound too cocky... I’m known as the entertainer in my group and can make people laugh."

Craig Lawson

Love Island 2017: Craig.

27-year-old Personal Trainer from Barking, Essex

Craig says: "I’ll be honest, all of the other guys are all talk. When it comes to confrontation, they just back down. No disrespect, they are nice guys, but I am not a yes man. I’m very much a man’s man, I’m very confident, whereas I think the guys in there are quite insecure. Kem for example with Amber said he would tell her she was getting on his nerves but backed down too quickly. He was too under the thumb."

Nathan Joseph

Love Island 2017: Nathan.
Love Island 2017: Nathan.

25-year-old Salesman from Essex

Nathan says: "I’d say in there now you’ve got Kem who is the funny one, Marcel and Jonny are the nice guys and then you’ve got Chris who is the conventionally good looking one. I think I combine all of those elements together – rather than have three different people it’s in one package."

Alex Beattie

Love Island 2017: Alex.
Love Island 2017: Alex.

22-year-old Personal Trainer from Newcastle

Alex says: "I love meeting new people and I love a challenge – it’s quite intriguing for me to see if I can go in there and make an impression. It’s a bit daunting but like I say I love a challenge."

Steve Ball

Love Island 2017: Steve.
Love Island 2017: Steve.

25-year-old Plumber from Wiltshire

He says: "I’ve been single for nine months now so since then I’ve been on a few dates, bad ones and good ones. Nothing serious. My reputation isn’t too bad. I’m not known for being a serial dater, I used to be a bad boy when I was younger but not since I’ve grown up a bit. I had a three year relationship and since I’ve been single I haven’t been a bad boy."

Rob Lipsett

Love Island 2017: Rob.

25-year-old Entrepreneur and Public Speaker from Dublin

He says: "Because I’m Irish, we obviously have a different sense of humour and different characteristics, so I’m going to bring that to the table. Me in general, I’m quite a quirky, outgoing person and my personality is different to the lads on the show already."

Love Island 2017 airs tonight at 9PM on ITV2.
