You know the drill, as soon as May comes around, Love Island fans make it their mission to try and find out who could possibly be a part of the next series.

In the months leading up to a new series we're often teased potential contestants that could be part of the original line-up. Sure, sometimes we never see them again, but sometimes certain contestants get leaked waaaaay before the series starts.

This year is no different, with many taking to TikTok to 'leak' the potential contestants to the world.

In a recent video, a user named @ukloveisland2022 speculated about the 'leaked contestants', with their faces AND social media handles.

Among the faces that were teased was Love In The Flesh star Joe Kellett, who briefly appeared as a single on the first series of the BBC Three reality show.

We're not going to lie, Joe didn't get the screen time he deserved, so we're more than happy to believe that he might be part of the original Love Island 2022 line-up.

Another face that was teased was Toby, who recently appeared on another ITV show Ready To Mingle.

One user commented, "Toby was on a show called ready to mingle- he had a girlfriend on the show if I recall."

It's worth mentioning that Love Island rarely features contestants that have starred on other TV show, with2018 winner Dani Dyer the only Islander to have appeared on another show, Survival Of The Fittest.

Toby and Joe aren't the only rumoured 2022 contestants, Pete Wicks' friend, influencer Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Zara McDermott's brother Brad are also in the potential line-up.

According to reports, Love Island will start on Monday 6 June and we are so ready for the show's return. It will likely start at 9pm and will air on ITV2.
