The winning couple get £50,000, as well as hundreds of thousands of new Instagram followers and brand deals.

Indiyah, a 23-year-old Londoner, says she wants to go on Love Island to escape the social media culture of real life and make a “real connection”.

She said: “I feel like I’m at a stage in my life now where I’m ready to meet new people and start dating properly.

“I have been single for some time and I feel like for my generation of people, it’s quite hard to date without being influenced by social media and stuff like that.

“Love Island particularly is like a closed space and I think it is a great place to get to know someone one-on-one and build a real connection.”

The eighth series of the ITV2 show will be filmed at a villa in the village of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar in Majorca.

And Indiyah said: “I feel like I’m going to bring a lot of flavour and vibrancy [to the villa].

“I feel like I’m quite a down to earth person, so it shouldn’t be an issue to meet a lover or a friend.”

Indiyah - who has more the 20,000 followers on her Instagram - described her dating history as “random”.

“Everyone I’ve dated have all been quite different,” she said.

“I don’t think I have ever been out with two guys who are quite the same.”

Love Island starts at 9pm Monday 6th June on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
