Bombshell Lillie Haynes certainly made a splash with her Love Island arrival.
Arriving to Casa Amor, she immediately caught Liam Reardon’s eye – and the pair soon kissed.
But Liam was quickly torn over his commitment to Millie, who was waiting for him back in the villa.
Enough about Liam, though – who is Lillie? What does she do, and why has she decided to go on the show?
Here’s what you need to know.
Who is Lillie Haynes?
Bombshell Lillie Haynes is a 22-year-old trainee accountant.
She hails from South Shields, a coastal town in Tyne and Wear about three miles from Newcastle.
Growing up, Lillie originally wanted to become a dancer – but decided to follow her natural ability with numbers.
Though these days, she says her accounting colleagues would best describe her as a ‘lovable headache’.
She said of her career: ‘I was always maths and science based at school, I was more natural at that kind of thing.

‘I followed my passion route originally, which was dancing. And then I realised I should probably go back to my natural capabilities.
‘I liked the sound of finance and accountancy. My colleagues would describe me as a lovable headache. I’m very loud, I’ve always got a new story to tell in the office.’
She says family would describe her as being ‘very get what I want’ – and says she has no filter.
‘If I want something I’ll be the first one out there, trying it, doing it and I’m not scared to take risks,’ she admitted before heading into the villa.
Lillie also says she’s gone in there to play the field – wanting to meet a bunch of people she wouldn’t usually get the chance to date.
‘Usually I’m very loyal and I meet one guy, date him, date him only and then I end up being his girlfriend and it never works out.
So I wanted to meet loads of different people that I wouldn’t normally come across and date them all essentially and then pick who I like from that bunch.’
She added: ‘I love a challenge. I’m just going to be myself. I’m quite cheeky, naturally flirty, make it clear what I want anyway.
‘If I get the signals of ‘back off, I’m sleeping outside by myself’ then I will… I’m going in there to date people I don’t usually date. I will explore other options.’
