New Love Island star Antigoni Buxton has famous mum and ex-boyfriend

Love Island teased the arrival of a new bombshell at the end of Tuesday's episode.

Last night's show saw Ikenna Ekwonna and Amber Beckford dumped from the villa after the public voted for their favourite islanders. Following the public's vote after Sunday's episode of the hit ITV dating show, six islanders were put at risk - but it was Ikenna and Amber who placed at the bottom.

After the announcement, the other contestants were emotional as they said their goodbyes. But as one islander leaves another joins.

Tonight's instalment will see 26-year-old Antigoni Buxton will enter the villa. Ahead of her appearance, the singer-songwriter from London said: "I've been single for almost a year-and-a-half and for the whole of the last year my goal has been to have as many different experiences as possible.

"I really just want to say 'yes' to things. Why not? It'll be fun. I'm a Cypriot girl and I love being in the sun. I've got nothing to lose."

Speaking in the Beach Hut about her arrival, Danica says: “She looks like a ray of sunshine - she’s radiant! But obviously I’m like, ‘What is going to happen next?’ Because I still haven’t found myself a man in here.”

At the fire pit, the Islanders are keen to know who Antigoni has got her eye on. Luca jokes: “Do you fancy Jay?” Antigoni says: “I’ll have to meet everybody. I’m very much the kind of person that I don’t know if I fancy someone until I’ve had a good chat with them.”

Speaking in the Beach Hut, Jay says: “Seeing someone new in the Villa for the first time, it’s surreal! She’s a really attractive girl and I’m looking forward to getting to know her.”

Antigoni isn't new to the spotlight. She has over 30,000 Instagram followers and her mum is British television presenter and restaurateur Tonia Buxton. It's also reported that she dated 2018 Love Island contestant Jack Fowler.
