The dating show involves a group of singletons living in a villa for eight weeks and in order to stay there, they must couple up. Among the singletons hoping to win the £50,000 first prize this year is 26-year-old Northumberland labourer Brad McClelland, a former pupil of Coquet High School and keen footballer.
Here’s a run-down of the contestants and their odds of winning, according to bookmakers Coral:
9. Liberty Poole
Liberty is a student and waitress from Birmingham. The 21-year-old is looking for a tall, confident, alpha male, but might be persuaded by a "nicer guy that is going to treat me right".
10. Jake Cornish
Jake, a 24-year-old water engineer from the West Country, split with his last girlfriend during lockdown. He says: "Looks-wise, I have always gone for blondes. But for me, the main thing is having respect and having good fun, and someone who will be loyal to you. I’ve had messages from girls that have got boyfriends and husbands."
11. Chloe Burrows
Chloe, a 25-year-old marketing executive from Bicester, is on the hunt for a man who is just as loud as she is.
"Because I am quite a big character and quite loud, they would have to be as loud, if not more," she says. "I could never be with someone who is quiet."
