Two new bombshells have entered the villa hoping to turn heads, but it turns out one of them already knows one of the Islanders.

Ella Barnes – who is joining the show alongside Josh Brocklebank – has admitted she has “history” with Tyrique Hyde and we need to know all the details immediately.

Tyrique has only just got his relationship with OG Ella, Ella Thomas, back on track after it completely derailed when she brought Ouzy See back from Casa Amor – but could bombshell Ella throw another spanner in the works for them?

Before entering the villa, Ella explained, “I’m open to getting to know all the boys. At the moment, everyone is happy in their couples but I plan on going in there to shake things up.

“I have a feeling I could make a few boys’ heads turn, especially Tyrique because we have history.”
