It looks like one of the latest contestants set to enter the Love Island villa, Limerick-born Greg O'Shea, has his sights set on fellow Irish islander Maura Higgins.

The 24-year-old professional rugby player said "Irish people bring a different edge to the villa" and said he expected to "hit it off straight away" with Longford model Higgins when he enters the villa on Tuesday night.

When asked who he has his eye on, Greg said: "I need to get in the villa and see what the story is and who is good craic!

"I'd say me and Maura will hit it off straight away, being two Irish people and she's hilarious."

He added: "She's very naturally funny and she's gorgeous as well so you never know."

The rugby player has been single for the past year after coming out of a serious relationship and is hoping to get his faith in love restored again.

He said: "I've always been a one girl kind of guy… If I see a girl I tend to fall for her hard. Hopefully that can happen again.

"After my last relationship I lost my faith in love so hopefully going into the villa can get my belief in love back."

Meanwhile, two new Love Island bombshells both have their sights set on Ovie Soko.

Estate agent Harley Brash, 20, from Newcastle, and model India Reynolds, 28, from Reading, will also join the villa on Tuesday night and look set to compete for the basketball player's affections.

Harley said: "I think Ovie is absolutely beautiful, he is stunning so he is basically my perfect man."

However, she added she was willing to get to know both Anton Danyluk and Michael Griffiths, both of whom have recently become single.

"I also think Anton comes across really funny so I'd be open to getting to know him", she said.

"I really fancy Michael but I think he is a bit misunderstood. He's lovely to look at though, I could definitely just look at him!"

The estate agent said she thought she would get along with Maura too, saying: "Maura's banter is right up my street, she is funny and anyone who says they don't speak to their girlfriends like Maura speaks is a liar!"

When asked who she has her eye on, fellow newcomer India replied: "Ovie! And Michael is good looking."

But the model said she didn't want to step on anyone's toes to find a partner.

Harley said: "I want to have a good time and I don't like falling out with people so hopefully I can be friends with the girls and gorgeous Ovie will still be single for me."
