Creative Director of the show, Mike Spencer, hinted that the Instagramable villa this time would provide the best-produced series yet from June 3 with new format elements and sexy singletons.

Welsh Rugby star signs up for Love Island series 11

Amidst this, it has been reported that Welsh rugby hunk - Ciaran Davies - is set to enter the villa. Show bosses are confident that his career and good looks are sure to turn some heads. A source told The Sun:

Ciaran caught the eye of Love Island bosses immediately.
He's gorgeous with a fit athletic build that will send the girls in the villa wild, but he's also a sweet boy next door from Wales to boot.
He's the kind of lad you could happily take home to your mum.

Davies has been ‘in talks with bosses for weeks’ and would be leaving for Majorca in the coming week or so. It’s not yet sure if show bosses are going to send Ciaran as an OG islander or as a bombshell but he’s a big-time casting team favourite.

Other rumoured stars from series 11 of Love Island

Apart from Ciaran, three more names are most likely to join the cast. After the success of All Starswhich Tom and Molly won, show bosses are set to make the line-up even more exciting. As such, here are the others who may join the lineup this summer:

Samantha Kenny

The 27-year-old works in a beauty salon as a makeup artist in Liverpool and is preparing to spend her summer in Majorca. The Tab reports that Samantha - who often shares her comfortable lifestyle on Instagram - may be heading to the villa as an OG islander.

Grace Jackson

Manchester-based model Grace Jackson already boasts almost 80k followers on Instagram. The blonde beauty has stars like Conor McGregor and Molly-Mae Hague - the richest Love Island star yet - following her already. She has also worked for brands like Fashion Nova and Rihanna’s lingerie brand, Savage X Fenty.

Gigi Simon

The next rumoured islander is 19-year-old Gigi Simon. Gigi has been tagged as the ‘Nepo baby’ of the list as she’s used to reality TV shows due to her mother. Her mother is Real Housewives of Cheshire and CBB’s Lauren Simon. It is believed that Gigi is ‘really keen to sign up’ for the show.
