Kicking off the line up is Paige Thorne, who is a 24-year-old paramedic from Swansea.
Opening up about why she joined the show, Paige said: "In Swansea there is just no-one I can find, I’ve tried and there’s just nobody there anymore.
"I need to break out and broaden my horizons and Love Island just brings everyone together for me. I haven't got to go out and I haven’t got to swipe. So, hopefully they can just come to me now!"
Paige went on to say she wants to bring 'positive energy' and is the 'mum' of the group so wants to look after her cast mates.
26-year-old Dami Hope was the second contestant who was announced for Love Island 2022.
The Senior Microbiologist from Dublin said he wanted to 'put himself out there to get some new experiences'.
He added: "I don’t know if I will cause trouble, I’ll try not to cause trouble but sometimes you don’t intentionally causetrouble - but it happens!"
Indiyah, 23, is a Hotel Waitress from London and is hoping to find The One.
"I feel like I’m at a stage in my life now where I’m ready to meet new people and start dating properly," she said.
"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."
From Newport, South Wales, Liam Llewellyn is a masters student.
The 22-year-old said he's excited to potentially settle down, admitting: "I think Love Island is a great opportunity to meet someone, you’re in with a load of different types, so you can get to grips with what you really like about people."
Tasha Ghouri is a 23-year-old from Thirsk.
The model and dancer has described her dating life as a 'shambles' as she said: "This is an opportunity for me to find ‘the one’ and have a great summer at the same time.
"I’m definitely ready for a relationship. I’m 23 now so I’m ready to get to know someone, go on holidays and travel with them."
Originally from Rome, Davide Sanclimenti now lives in Manchester.
The 27-year-old is a business owner and says he's going to win over the girls with his Italian charm.
"I think Love Island is going to be so much fun," he said.
"I’m going to be the Italian stallion in the Villa! With my Italian charm, I can also be a very romantic guy. I’m good looking and I’ve realised since I first arrived in Manchester, a lot of English girls actually love me."
19-year-old Gemma Owen hails from Chester and is an International Dressage Rider and Business Owner.
Describing herself, Gemma said: "I would say I’m fun, flirty and fiery. I think I’m good at giving advice, I’m a good person to talk to, I’m very honest.
"If I want the same guy, I’d do it but in a nice respectful way."
Ikenna Ekwonna is a 23-year-old Pharmaceutical salesman.
From Nottingham, Ikenna said he's only been in one relationship but is now 'at the age' where he could settle down.
"Hopefully, I’m going to bring spontaneity and excitement," he said.
"I’m not really shy to speak to people and I don’t really care too much about what people think."
Hailing from London, Amber Beckford is a 24-year-old Nanny.
Asked what she'll bring to the villa, Amber said: "Hopefully fun! Have some chit chat with the girls. I can definitely be opinionated so I’m not sure how that’s going to go down.
"As I work with kids I have patience with kids but adults, they annoy me!"
Andrew Le Page
Andrew Le Page is a 27-year-old Real Estate Agent from Guernsey who is very excited about getting into the villa.
When asked what makes him a good partner, Andrew said: "When I’m with someone I'm very loyal, I’m a good boyfriend as when I’m with someone I’m all for them."
23-year-old Luca Bish is a fishmonger from Brighton.
Opening up about why he has entered the Love Island villa, Luca said: "I came out of a four-year relationship about a year ago.
"I was enjoying being in a relationship, there were just things I didn’t like and we drifted apart."
