The Love Island 2017 cast has been chosen for the new series and here's what to expect.

Host Caroline Flack took to Twitter today to tease what's to come from this year's contestants.

And it seems as though we should get ready for lots of eye candy.

Caroline wrote on Twitter: "I saw the casting tapes for this years Love Islands peeps yesterday .... LOTS OF TATS... LOTS OF SKIN... LOTS OF LOLS"

Series 3 of Love Island had received a record breaking 55,000 applications for its new series.

The number is SIX TIMES the total who applied for last summer's second series, The Sun newspaper reported in the week.

Casting for the third run of the revamped show - which originally aired back in 2005 and 2006 with celebrities - is now complete.

Although no names have been confirmed, there have been some rumours: 21-year-old tabloid favourite Jane Parks is reportedly in talks to join the cast for the third series of the show.

Also rumoured is the daughter of Big Brother star Lisa Appleton, Sophia-Maria.

Meanwhile, heat magazine has reported that plus-sized model Melicia Chivers could make an appearance too.

"She does pole dancing, too, for strength and fitness. The show has always been about slim girls in bikinis, but they want a more diverse group this year," a source told the magazine.

The publication also claims that Danny Latimer - who has previously appeared on reality shows Desperate Scousewives and Shipwrecked: Battle of the Islands - could be a part of the line up, together with hunky fitness expert Ross Dickerson.

"Danny's really romantic. He's genuine and would like to find love on the show," the source said.

Love Island will air on ITV2 this summer, although no launch date has yet been confirmed.
