Two episodes in and things are already hotting up on Love Island as new bombshells were teased on Tuesday night. 

After ITV2 viewers watched Davide Sanclimenti couple up with Gemma Owen, leaving Liam Llewellyn single, they were given a taste of what’s to come as Afia Tonkmor and Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu were unveiled as shock new contestants.  

Afia – who works as a Lounge Host at a Private Members Club in London – explained that signing up for the show felt like a ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity but believes she is still single because she tends to ‘fall in love too quickly.’

The 25-year-old said: ‘It just seems like a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet someone, have an amazing summer, just have so much fun, and have a bit of a summer romance as well. 

‘But I fall in love quickly, too quickly, two dates I am like, “OMG I am obsessed with this boy, he’s everything.”‘ 

Afia was joined as a new contestant by Essex actress Ekin-Su who is looking for a ‘genuine spark’ in her love life but admits she can be ‘quite picky’ and isn’t in the villa to make friends.

The latest Islander, 27, said: ‘I’m looking for that real genuine spark and they just see me as me. I think the concept of the show brings back true and raw feelings. 

‘I’m quite picky and I’m not just looking for looks, I’m looking for brains! I’m looking for someone with intelligence, someone who can have good chats.

No messing about: ‘I’m not there to make friends. If someone wants to have an argument with me, bring it on,’ she said

‘Nothing like cockiness! I’m looking for a serious man and a serious relationship. I’ll bring the whole package to the villa – drama, tears, laughter, joy, and love. 

‘I’m looking for the love of my life. I’m not there to make friends. If someone wants to have an argument with me, bring it on.’

The announcement was made on the same night that Liam was dumped by Gemma and left on his own when Monday’s bombshell contestant Davide coupled up with her.

However, during her first appearance on the show, London-born Afia admitted she wasn’t afraid to go after someone else’s man and warned her fellow females that she would ‘get what she wanted.’

Speaking during a pre-recorded video, she said: ‘If I see a guy that I want in the villa I’m definitely going to make sure I get him. Watch out girls, I’m coming for your man!’

At the end of the clip, voiceover Iain Sterling revealed the public would be able to vote on which two boys will head on a date with them. 

Love Island continues tomorrow at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
