Love Island 2024 is off to a banging start with 12 brand new exciting cast members, from the cheeky chap Ronnie Vint to the voted ‘most girlfriend potential’ Mimii Ngulube, the villa is abuzz.

But everything turned on its head in episode one when for the first time in Love Island history a celebrity walked through the doors as a bombshell, Joey Essex.

Within 24 hours Joey charmed islander Samantha Kenny and ‘stole’ her, leaving poor 21-year-old Sam Taylor single. As the only single in the villa, Maya Jama was left no choice but the dump Sam from the island.

With such a strong start to the bombshells appearance, and with rumours of other celebrity bombshells planning to join Love Island 2024, we’ve all got to stay on top of it.

So here are all the bombshells who’ve joined Love Island in 2024...

Grace was one of the first people to make the rumoured lineup for this summer's Love Island so, when she didn't turn up on the first episode it looked like she wasn't going to appear on the show.

But during a sneak peak on episode 11 she was seen entering the villa alongside two other bombshells. Grace has a large online presence with 80k IG followers, including Molly-Mae Hague and Conor McGregor, so it's no shock she knows TOWIE star Joey Essex.

They reportedly dated for six weeks before Joey ended things... so it'll be interesting to see if they pick things back up in the villa
