The Love Island stars have some famous friends and family connections - everyone from Molly Marsh dating Tommy Fury, to Ella Thomas' celeb colleagues.

Love Island is back and of course they’ve packed the villa full of beautiful people.

But while plenty of them will come out of the series with thousands of followers and some lucrative brand deals, a few already have some showbiz connections.

These include working with Brad Pitt and a celeb ex boyfriend, so let’s take a look…

Model Ella Thomas has brushed shoulders with some very famous people over the years.

She starred in a Burna Boy music video and even acted alongside Hollywood star Brad Pitt as an extra in World War Z. Ella might have only been 12 years old at the time but that’s still pretty cool…

“I’ve been in a Headie One and Burna Boy music video and I was once an extra in World War Z," she said, adding: "I was 12 years old when I filmed it and got to meet Brad Pitt which was cool.”

Obviously there’s a footballer in the villa, and this year Tyrique Hyde is hoping to find love.

He’s currently playing in midfield for Dartford FC and is also friends with former Islander, Toby Aromolaran.

Tyrique also has a famous footballing dad, Micah Hyde, who played for Watford in the Premier League and is now head coach for Queens Park Rangers Under 18s.

Molly Marsh

Molly Marsh probably has the biggest claims to fame as she is the daughter of former Coronation Street actress Janet Marsh.

Janet has been on the soap as three different characters and has also been on shows such as Where The Heart Is and In The Dark.

But Molly is also successful in her own right and has a job in social media - this means she’s been hanging out with the likes of Molly-Mae, Maura Higgins and Olivia Attwood.

She’s also already looked round the Love Island Villas in Mallorca and South Africa. And it turns out Molly has previously caught the eye of Casa Amor lad from series eight Jack Keating.

Molly and Jack were texting and apparently there was a real spark but their flirtation didn't last.

Not only that but she is also said to have dated Tommy Fury before he went into the villa back in 2019...
