Tensions have risen in the Love Island villa as bombshells Antigoni Buxton and Charlie Radnedge made their dramatic entrances.

At the beginning of Wednesday's episode singer-songwriter Antigoni, 26, caused a stir when the boys found her relaxing on the sun loungers just after the islanders woke up.

While Charlie, a 28-year-old in real estate development from London, seemed to peak the interest of a few female contestants when he made his surprise entry at the end of the day.

Following her arrival, Antigoni, who is the daughter of TV chef Tonia Buxton, revealed she did not have her eye on anyone in particular yet as she feels she needs to "meet somebody in person and see their energy and vibe" first.

This was soon put to the test as she was allowed to choose three boys to take on a date.

Antigoni Buxton made quite the entrance

After picking Davide Sanclimenti, Dami Hope and Jay Younger, they all left the villa to have their own picnics.

On her first date with Davide, he said: "I can feel that you came here for a real connection."

Her second date with Dami seemed to confirm they were more friendly than romantic as they spent a lot of the time chatting about his new love interest Indiyah.

However, things seemed to heat up between her and Jay as she told him that she thinks he is attracted to her.

Antigoni also admitted to him that she does feel "an initial attraction" but that they would have to see how things go.

Antigoni chose to go on a date with Jay, Dami and Davide

In a debrief after the dates, Antigoni told the other girls she had a nice time Davide and Dami but admitted that she had the strongest connection with Jay.

Ekin-Su, who is currently coupled up with Jay, appeared anxious when waiting back at the villa while her partner was on the date.

Speaking from the Beach Hut after they returned, she said: "I didn’t really want to hear that Jay was the most like flirtiest date or romantic or whatever.

Later in the day as the girls were getting ready for the evening activities, they received a text announcing that a new boy would be entering the villa.

Charlie Radnedge won't be shy about stepping on toes

As Charlie made his entrance, he said: "I’m going into the villa to find love so that may involve stepping on a few people’s toes."

The new bombshell proceeded to get to known the girls in the garden over drinks while the boys looked on from the terrace.

While speaking to the female contestants, Charlie revealed that he has previously gone for girls who have been "very fiery".

Speaking in the Beach Hut afterwards, Ekin-Su appeared interested as she said: "I thought I might scare the poor guy away with my fireness but the first thing Charlie said was that he likes a very fiery girl. I am the firest, hottest fire in the villa right now."

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and Virgin Media 2
