As if there hasn’t been enough drama in the Love Island villa, producers have shaken things up once again by adding two more bombshells into the mix.

After the Islanders got each other’s hearts racing in the heart rate challenge, it was announced that Trey Norman and Jessy Potts would be arriving to whisk Jess White and Joey Essex off on dates.

The new Love Island 2024 bombshells made an immediate impact, with Jess taking a liking to Trey and Joey’s head being turned by Jessy – with the latter leaving Grace Jackson fuming.

Joey, who made history as Love Island’s first ever celebrity bombshell, hasn’t been short of female attention in the villa, but Jessy has insisted that she doesn’t fancy Joey just because he’s a TOWIE legend.

Speaking before entering the villa, Jessy explained, “Joey is also very good looking, I like a pretty boy with dimples, he intrigues me.”

She added, “I don’t care about who he is but I’m intrigued to see what he is actually like.”
