Love Island will introduce three new bombshells tonight as Lucinda Strafford, Chloe Burrows, AJ Bunker, Teddy Soares, Danny Bibby and Toby Aromolaran await to find out which of them will be getting the dump from the villa.

In a dramatic turn of events, last night’s episode of the ITV2 dating series saw the group’s 70s disco party interrupted with news that one boy and one girl will have to pack their bags after being voted least popular by the public. 

However, the final decision will be down to their fellow islanders. 

The rest of the group won’t be sad for too long as they’ll have newbies Tyler Cruickshank, Georgia Townend and Abigail Rawlings to keep them occupied. 

Who is Tyler Cruickshank?

Tyler is a 26-year-old estate agent from Croydon. 

He’s been single for three years and is feeling ‘competitive’ so the coupled up islanders might want to keep an eye on Mr Steal Your Girl.

‘I want to get out there in my shorts and show my abs,’ he teased, which will no doubt make the single ladies happy. 

Tyler’s friends would describe him as ‘confident’ but also ‘very caring’ and ‘up for a laugh’. 

The property agent has his eye on Kaz Kawmi, who is in a friendship couple with Aaron Francis, and said: ‘She just looks like she has so much energy about her. You kind of need it if you’re surrounded by people all the time. 

‘If you were feeling down, Kaz would be the person to uplift you. Faye, she’s a fiery-ish sort of character. She sticks up for her friends and for herself. I don’t think there’ll ever be a dull moment with her.’ 

Tyler’s most looking forward to striking up a friendship with Jake who thinks ‘seems really genuine’. 

As for the women already happily coupled up, Tyler said: ‘Listen, you go in there and you have to talk to everyone. You have to get to know everyone. It’s completely down to them who they want to pick.’ 

So what else can viewers expect from the newbie? 

Tyler teased: ‘More energy I think. I’m a person that doesn’t take myself too seriously. I like messing about. I like jokes. I’m not just going to be there just lazing around. I’ll be up doing this, doing that, playing games. I’m really good at sports.’ 

His celebrity crush is Jade Thirlwall and her ‘girl-next-door kind of vibes’, so that might tell you all you need to know about who he’ll set his sights on going forward.
