Love Island has been dealing with the shocking fallout of Casa Amor, with one particular exchange sending Faye Winters into a tailspin.
Upon seeing flirty comments between Teddy Soares and Clarisse Juliette, Faye tore into her beau in scenes that have subsequently sparked outrage by fans.
Anyone hoping the waters might calm in the villa are in for a shock though, as two new bombshells are set to arrive and stir up the drama once again.
Here is all you need to know about new girl Priya Gopaldas.
Who is Love Island bombshell Priya Gopaldas?
Priya, 23, is a medical student from London.
Describing her studies and her aspirations, the brainy beauty said: ‘I’ve been studying for five years now.
‘It’s six years until I qualify as a doctor and the goal is to be an orthopaedic surgeon – that is muscles and bones.
‘There aren’t enough women in that area of surgery. I feel like I’d like to go headfirst into that area and be a representative for women who think orthopaedic surgery is male-dominated. More women need to be exposed to it and realise they can do it.’
When asked about signing up for the show, she said: ‘I thought it was a challenge, it’s something different.
‘I’m single and I’m looking for love and I thought this would be a great opportunity for me to take me out of my comfort zone. I’m nearing the end of medical school so I’ve got my career on track, but now I just need a man!’
Being on the villa – even with its drama – might be a welcome break for Priya after working in the NHS throughout the pandemic.
She explained: ‘Our studies were interrupted midway and we were all told if we wanted to we could help out during the pandemic so I was working in ICU for the whole of February. You would come back after every shift exhausted so there definitely wasn’t any time for dating or relationships.
‘The NHS has been really tough in the ICU with the long hours, but I find it so rewarding and it’s made me really resilient. Being here is good for me because it’s something absolutely different to my job.’
