The Love Island producers really need to calm down when it comes to bombshells this series. It seems that every couple of days we’re treated to some new faces in the villa. At the rate they’re burning through bombshells we’re curious to see if there’ll be any new faces left by the time Casa Amor comes around.

This week we met the newest addition to the villa in the form of singer Antigoni Buxton from London and she seems set to bring even more drama to an already drama filled villa (we’re looking at you Ekin-Su).

So who is Antigoni? If that’s the question on your lips, you’re in the right place. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest addition to the villa.

Who is Antigoni Buxton?

Antigoni is a singer-songwriter from London. Before entering the villa she admitted, "I’ve been single for almost a year and a half and for the whole of the last year my goal has been to have as many different experiences as possible.

"I really just want to say ‘yes’ to things. Why not? It’ll be fun. I’m a Cypriot girl and I love being in the sun. I’ve got nothing to lose!"

How old is Antigoni Buxton?

Love Island 2022 bombshell Antigoni is 26 years old.

Who is Antigoni Buxton interested in?

Well that's what we all want to know, tbh. In the villa she asked Davide Sanclimenti, Dami Hope and Jay Younger out for a date. However before she went onto the show, she admitted, "I won’t know who I’m feeling until I get in there - I need to meet somebody in person and see their energy and vibe."

Are Antigoni Buxton and Anna Vakili friends?

It seems Antigoni is friends with former Love Island star Anna Vakili as the 2019 star posted a picture alongside the new bombshell on her Instagram Story. She captioned the photo, "(just catching up on Love Island) good luck to this beaut @antigoni.”

Antigoni Buxton and Anthony Joshua together

If you take a quick scroll through Antigoni’s Instagram page you’re sure to find pictures of her cosied up with her pal superstar boxer Anthony Joshua (talk about a flex).

Did Antigoni Buxton and Jack Fowler date?

Before even joining the villa Antigoni already had a connection to Love Island. She previously dated Love Island alumni Jack Fowler. They reportedly hooked up for a few months but things fizzled out before they could get serious. It’s unclear if they are still in contact and while Antigoni still follows Jack on Instagram, he does not follow her (oof).

Antigoni Buxton's dad

Antigoni isn’t the only one getting attention since she joined the villa. Her dad, Paul, has also caused a bit of a stir after an Instagram picture for his 57th birthday resurfaced. And we have to say, he does not look his age.

Antigoni included the caption, “Happy Birthday Daddy! 🥰 57 and thriving 💪🏼 You set the bar so high none of these man will ever be good enough🥱 you’re so inspirational and kind and you make the lives of everyone around you better - thank-you for everything! Love you.”

One of her followers commented, “Ab genetics 🔥” in reference to the fact both father and daughter have some rather impressive abs.

Antigoni Buxton’s mum

It isn’t just Antigoni’s Dad getting attention. Her mum, Tonia Buxton is a celebrity in her own right. She is a celebrity chef who regularly appears on Sunday Brunch.

Tonia is a big supporter of Antigoni and her Love Island journey. Following her entrance on the show, Tonia posted a series of pictures of the two of them on Instagram with the caption, “I can not believe that my @antigoni is in the Love Island villa, she mentioned she would be sunbathing this week I didn’t think she meant in Mallorca! 😆.

“We are all so excited for you and know you will be amazing! You have always been an island girl, so I know you will fit right in! 🏝🌊.

“Hoping you all love and support my girl, I know she will make us proud! ❤️”.

Antigoni Buxton** and Made in Chelsea's Miles Nazaire**

As well as her friendship with Anthony Joshua and Anna Vakili, it seems Antigoni is also close with Made in Chelsea's Miles Nazaire. He posted a video of himself watching her on Love Island and her said, “@antigoni well done babe.”
