Meet the Love Island Australia stars – including Justin Bieber’s rumoured ex

Dani Dyer, Jack Fincham and Megan Barton Hanson’s villa antics might be a thing of the past, but the summer of love is far from over.

Love Island Australia is taking over ITVBe, meaning we get to witness all the drama from Down Under.

The first ever Aussie series of the dating show proved even more dramatic than the UK version, with steamy romps and vicious cat fights occurring nightly.

Glamorous ex pop star Sophie Monk is on presenting duties while funnyman Eoghan McDermott replaced Iain Stirling as the quick-witted narrator.

But just who are the contestants?

The explosive original line-up has everything from an ex fling of Justin Bieber to a former Big Brother hearthrob.

Here is everything you need to know…

The Girls

Natasha, 21

Blonde bombshell Natasha is a beauty salon owner with a very impressive dating history.

She’s been out with multi millionaires, rugby players and a certain global pop star.

Natasha was forced to sign a strict non-disclosure agreement after getting cosy with the mystery man.

Erin, 23

Erin is ‘half Portuguese’ and says she’s looking to find someone as loud and feisty as she is.

But she does have a softer side, revealing her dream man would be a huge fan of Disney movies just like her.

Tayla, 21

Following in the great Love Island tradition, Tayla is this series’ resident beauty queen.

Despite her award-winning looks, Tayla has been single for quite some time and says she find it hard to trust men.

All she’s looking for is someone taller than her, who is family orientated and has a decent job.

Not much to ask?

Cassidy, 23

Bartender Cassidy is going in the villa to break her sexual dry spell – as she’s not done the deed in over eight months.

Pretty Cassidy describes herself as a country girl at heart and says she’s looking to find a fella who loves the outdoors as much as she does.


Brunette babe Millie is a self-confessed animal lover, but she’s still got room for a man in her life.

The fun-loving Aussie said she’s always getting into mishaps as she can be egged on to do just about anything.

Looks like she could be trouble!

The Boys

Justin , 27

Easy on the eye Justin is an international model.

But he’s got talent in other areas, as he also works part-time as a concreter for his dad’s own business.

All Justin’s looking for is someone to spend fun times with who is extremely loyal.

It’s a pity he never got to meet up with Georgia Steel ….

Charlie, 22

Hunky Charlie is an international rugby player who’s represented Australia at the Common Wealth Games.

The charmer said he’s out to find a girl in the villa who is at ‘least a C cup.’ But admits he’s not too fussed about hair colour.

Good to see he’s keeping his options open.

Grant, 22

Home-bod Grant still lives with his parents and wants to find the right girl and settle down as soon as he can.

The electrician says his mate’s often tease him about his romantic outlook, which he finds incredibly tiresome.

Eden, 25

Prison officer Eden isn’t looking for a natural beauty.

His dream woman would have ‘big boobs, big booty, lip fillers and an all round good body.’

Despite his optimistic outlook, Eden said he’s struggling to find Mrs Right and his relationships are often over before they even get going.

Here’s hoping he finds true love in the villa.

Josh, 25

Sports administrator Josh should come with a warning sign.

He openly admits to cheating multiple times in the past and has even got it on with his mates’ girlfriends.

But Josh said he can’t help but cheat as it’s in his genetics.

What a guy.

John James, 32

If John James looks familiar, that’s because he is!

He starred in Big Brother UK way back in 2010, where he was the love interest of eventual winner Josie Gibson.

While their fling failed to turn into lasting love, JJ found himself single once again and has decided to try his luck in a new reality show.

Love Island Australia kicks off Monday 13 August on ITVBe at 11pm
