Love Island’s Casa Amor boys confirmed and one has a very famous dad

It always has a habit of stirring up trouble on the show and Casa Amor is back for 2022, with the six boys joining your girls in the second villa now confirmed.

Over the years Casa Amor had given Love Island some of its most dramatic moments. Who can forget when Georgia stayed loyal to Josh, only for him to return from Casa Amor hand in hand with Kaz. And then all hell broke loose a year later when Amber returned to the main villa alone, only to see Michael had recoupled with new girl Joanna.

The one and only Winter Love Island to date gave us the “congrats hun,” line from Shaughna as Callum walked into the villa with Molly, while last year Lillie dropped one hell of a bombshell when she revealed to Millie that she’d kissed Liam in Casa Amor.

On going into Casa Amor, account manager Deji said: " The reason why is that my sex life is amazing, but my love life is awful. I am the master of failed talking stages. My love life isn’t going the right way so one night I decided to apply for Love Island and now I’m here!"

On what makes him a good boyfriend, he added: "I’ve been single for ages. Personally, I feel like I’m an amazing boyfriend! If I’m 100% then people lose interest but if I don’t care then all of a sudden they’re obsessed with me - it doesn’t make sense! Maybe my type is wrong or the people I go for."

Asked about stepping on toes in the villa, model Josh said: "I feel like I am competitive. I’d definitely step on someone's toes, but I wouldn’t necessarily take a big risk if I wasn’t feeling them 100%," adding: "I think I’ll bring a lot of energy, hopefully some good chat and maybe a little bit of trouble but we’ll see!"

Jack Keating, 23, Dublin

If hadn't already guessed from his second name, Jack is the son of Ronan Keating. On the subject of his dad, Jack said: "Yeah my dad is a singer, Ronan Keating. He will be watching when I’m on it for sure. He’s buzzing for me, me and my dad are very close, we’re best mates."

Asked why Love Island and why now? Jack explained: "I’ve been single for a long time, probably 4 or 5years now and I’ve really been missing that spark that I haven’t been getting on the dating scene, like I’ve been dating for a long time. And I just thought why not? Hopefully I’ll get a connection with somebody and see what happens."

George Tasker, 23, Cotswolds

Outlining his intentions on Love Island, George said: " I am definitely competitive but I’m more of a perfectionist with myself. I’m in there to try and find someone and if that means treading on people's toes, then that means treading on toes.

"If it feels right and she feels right with me then you’d be stupid not to go for it - you’ve got to follow your heart. If there is something genuine then I’m going to go for it."

Samuel Agbiji, 22, Manchester

On what he'll bring to the villa, Samuel, a model, said: "I know what I’m going to bring to the Villa -good energy! I’m a happy, positive guy and I like to live in the moment and live blissfully. I like to bring good energy wherever I am. I’m the type of person you’ll see dancing a lot, I’m the type of person who likes to put smiles on other peoples faces."

Billy Brown, 22, Surrey

Single roofing business owner Billy said: "I’m having fun. Since I split with my girlfriend around a year ago, I just thought I won’t take it too seriously, if I find someone, I find someone, if not then I’ll do my own thing. I haven’t really found that one yet I don’t think.
