Loyalty

Lavena says she's loyal, 'if I wasn’t feeling it I would definitely say. I wouldn’t hold back in that sense.'

'You are there for that reason so there’s no point holding onto someone you are not feeling. I can’t stand cheating.'

She explains her definition of girl code, 'There are different levels of girl code. It depends how long you’ve been friends.'

'If I’ve just gone in and said hi to the girls, girl code doesn’t exist. It’s like level one girl code.'

She says her worst dating experience was with a guy who tried to show off.

'I went on a date with a guy and it was just awkward and he was moody the whole time.'

It sounds like Nabila isn't afraid to say it as it is.

'This sounds egotistical but as long as I make it clear I like someone, then I don’t think it’d be that hard to get a guy.'

'I need to make it clear if I find someone attractive and then see if we vibe.'

She doesn't think any of the couples in the show are serious yet.

'I don’t think they are in ‘relationships’ really yet, it’s only been a few weeks so I don’t see treading on toes as a big deal.'

She has her eyes on, 'Michael, Danny, Jordan and the new Tom.'

The villa girls

He talks about the girls he has his eye on in the villa.

Marvin's wandering eye

'I definitely have a wandering eye but if I have that it’s the main indicator that I’m not with the one.'

'I’ve had a wandering eye in the past but it’s only because I’ve known that I’ve not been fully happy.'

'I can have my head spun, that’s one of my negatives. I’ve both cheated and been cheated on – I would like to think that’s behind me...'

His claim to fame is that he's Harry Redknapp’s personal trainer.

Dan's gonna tread on toes

'I’m not bothered about treading on any toes, I’ll test the water and speak to all of the girls.'

'I think Tommy is very much like me, I’m a bit of an idiot too. Anton seems a bit of a clown as well so I think we’d get on.'

'If I like someone, I won’t wander. But if I’m coupled up with someone and feel I have a better connection with someone else, it’d be stupid not to pursue it.'

'There is no point settling if you think there is something better.'

Name: Ovie Soko

Age: 28

Ovie describes himself as, 'a fun person, I demand attention without having to say too much and I’m laid back so feel like I’ll balance some of the personalities in the villa.'

'Also, I’m laid back and I don’t take myself too seriously.'

Personality traits

'My less attractive traits are that I like things the way I like them, I’m opinionated - if I have an opinion I’ll say my piece.'

'I’m a straight shooter who is honest and have been told sometimes that I can be too honest.'

'Plus I’m a competitor, it comes with my job, it’s built into my DNA.'

He gives himself an 8 out of 10 in looks, 'Wherever I go around the world, I think I can be an 8.'

'My best feature is my personality, I am just a vibe and people like being around my energy.'

Speaking of the villa girls, he says, 'They are all gorgeous girls but Anna, I’ve been watching her from the beginning and she has consistently has been on my radar.'

Dating history

'Because I’m a basketball player, my schedule is strict with regards to time so girls tend to creep in my DMs at times.'

'I have crept into the DMs before. I rarely meet people at the club but maybe at a bar...'

'In a more calm environment where you can still have a conversation because that’s something as I’m getting older and growing up that I’m valuing much more.'

Treading on toes

'Treading on toes? Is there any such thing in Love Island? People are going to be put in tough spots on this show.'

'I’m not worried, I’m not going to be disrespectful, I’m confident I bring enough to the table.'

The villa boys

'They all seem like sound guys, they seem like cool people.'

'I’m competitive but I’m in the locker room with 14 other big egos on a high level sports team and we all get along just fine, so I think I’ll be okay.'

'Bro code is if the guys have told you something in confidence and it could cause a rift, to you to keep it to yourself, you shouldn’t go spreading it, that’s not cool.
