X Factor star set to join Love Island 2016 cast in new twist

Love Island 2016

A former X Factor contestant is being lined up to enter the Love Island 2016 villa.

Last night saw a dramatic show as two new girls entered before one - Malia Arkian - was ejected following a HUGE bust up with Kady McDermot.

But Love Island chiefs aren't going to let the Islanders calm down a bit as two new guys are set to join the group this week.

One of them is said to be singer Luke White, brother to Lydia Lucy who recently made the final of The Voice UK.

Luke himself auditioned for The X Factor back in 2012 as part of Times Red who were a wild card for the live shows.

However they missed out on the finals in the public vote which was won by Christopher Maloney.

Now Luke is set to appear on Love Island, according to the Daily Star.

"Luke is just what Love Island needs," a source told the newspaper. "Not only does he have a chiselled body but he is super charming.

"The girls will be fighting over him in no time - especially if he starts singing."

According to the tabloid, Luke and the other new guy will enter the house on a task but it'll be up to the public to decide which of them stays.

Of course after last night's incident that could change as it would result in even numbers of boys and girls.

For now, Love Island continues on ITV2 tonight a 9PM.
