Who is your celebrity crush?

“Channing Tatum – I don’t like pretty boys, they give me the ‘ick’ because they always have a crap personality. Channing Tatum is handsome but not too pretty. He’s manly and he can dance. If a man can dance I’m in love with him straight away.”

“I want a boyfriend, I want to find someone who makes me laugh. I’ve been single for quite a while, my mother is bugging me, she’s like, ‘You need to find a boyfriend.’ I’m just excited to try something new and I think going on Love Island is a good way to meet someone.”

Best or worst date story?

“I went on a date once and I never saw him again. We went for food and shared a bottle of wine. As I was speaking to him he fell asleep! I had to clink his wine glass to wake him up.”

Anna-May Robey, 20

How would friends/family describe you?

“Energetic. I’m always running around singing and screaming. My parents are always like, ‘Shut up!’ I work from home all day so I don’t really speak to people in person for two or three days a week, so when my father comes home, he’ll want to sit down and chill out, and I’m there chewing his ear off! I would definitely say I am a chatterbox.”

What’s your claim to fame?

“In my work as a makeup artist I’ve worked with lots of celebrities. Also, when I was 6-years-old I used to live in Spain and I was in an episode of Benidorm as an extra.”

Stunning: As for what gives her the ick, it's over-enthusiastic texters. 'If you send me question marks if I¿ve not replied to you in a while, you¿re gone,' she insists

What gives you the ‘ick’?

“I don’t mind people texting me all the time but if you send me question marks if I’ve not replied to you in a while, you’re gone. That’s a really big red flag for me! Also if I see a guy trip over, that’s an instant turn off.”

“Guys that don’t wear socks in the house. Why are your feet flapping all around the house? Guys have huge feet too, yuck. Also, guys in the bathtub with no bubbles, such an ick, no.”

Tell us something not many people know about you?

“I have Vitiligo, which is a skin pigmentation, you may not even notice it. It’s on my lip and I have a stripe on my hair. Not many people know that but I think it’s quite cute. I don’t care about covering it up all the time, I think it’s a vibe.”

Kai Fagan, 24

Why would you say you’re single?

What do you think you’ll bring to the Villa?

“Fun and charisma. I just want to be naturally myself in there, have good times and make memories. I think people will enjoy my company.”

Tell us something not many people know about you?

“On meeting me, you’d never know I am blind in one eye. It was the result of a football injury when I was 8; I went in for a header and got kicked in the face. I’ve got two different coloured eyes, one blue and one green. It’s added to my character, there are so many people that are worse off than me. And if anything, losing something like that makes you realise that. It’s not hindered me in any shape or form. It’s a good conversation starter I must admit.”

Proud: The keen golfer and boxer from Essex, is hoping to raise awareness by discussing his disability on screen

What’s your ‘elevator pitch’ for why someone should want to date you?

“I’m the most genuine person you’ll meet. I’m genuine, caring and I’m a nice person – which you don’t find these days.”

Why Love Island and why now?

“Having grown up on a farm, it’s been quite difficult juggling relationships and work. Love Island will give me time away from the farm to solely go out and find love. I think I’m at the time of my life where I’m mature enough to go and find a wife.”

Tell us something not many people know about you?

“Every night I light a candle and meditate for 20-25 minutes. A girl I was seeing told me to meditate, I tried it and loved it. I stopped seeing her and carried on meditating! It’s a nice way to self reflect, taking a minute on my day/week. It’s really nice and sets me up for a nice sleep.”

Looking for love: 'Having grown up on a farm, it¿s been quite difficult juggling relationships and work,' he explains. 'Love Island will give me time away from the farm to solely find love'

Shaq is hoping to find his future wife

Why Love Island and why now?

“I haven’t had the best luck with previous relationships. So I thought, why not be in the sun and potentially meet the love of my life? Hopefully I do come out with my future wife. The person I hope to marry one day. Hopefully she’s in the Villa.”

Do you fall in love quickly?

“My family and friends would say I do. I’m the type of person that wears my heart on my sleeve. If I find someone I click with, I fall very hard, very fast. Sometimes that can be a bad thing. I’m a very emotional person. It can be a blessing and a curse.”

Haris Namani, 21

Haris, a TV salesman, believes Love Island is the “best opportunity” for him to find love because he hasn’t had much luck in the past.

What do you think you’ll bring to the villa?

“I’m different, I’m a unique guy, the way I act; confident, not awkward, especially with the girls. I’m friendly, I’m very respectful as well. Anyone who meets me, I don’t think they have anything bad to say about me. I don’t give them that bad impression to say, ‘Oh, I don’t want to speak to him again.’”

Family man: Haris adds that his family's opinion is important to him, admitting: 'I¿m not going to say I¿ve fallen in love until I¿ve taken them to meet my mum and dad or sisters and brother'

Do you fall in love quickly?

“I’ve never taken a girl home, I’m not going to say I’ve fallen in love until I’ve taken them to meet my mum and dad or sisters and brother. ”
