If you were left seething after last night's Love Island cliffhanger, that saw Laura Whitmore strut into the Vibes Club to ruin the Islanders day out with a SHOCK double dumping, fret not, because heat can reveal tonight's episode is equally as juicy.

As we say goodbye to two Islanders - either Billy Brown, Danica Taylor, Dami Hope and Summer Botwe - the beds won't stay empty for long, as FOUR new bombshells will be making their way into the villa.

Yep, even though there's only two weeks to go before season eight is over for good (cry), say hello to footballer Jamie Allen, model and Kylian Mbappé’s official body double Reece Ford, operations manager and content creator Nathalia Campos and dancer Lacey Edwards.

We're genuinely contemplating booking tomorrow morning off.

Paige Thorne was the first Love Island star confirmed for the series. And whoever is running her Instagram revealed how she managed to keep her Love Island stint a secret.

MORE Love Island 2022 rumoured bombshells

In the months leading up to a new series we're often teased about potential contestants that could be part of the starting line-up. Sure, sometimes we never see them again, but sometimes certain contestants get leaked waaaaay before the series starts and this year is no different.

While the OG Love Island 2022 line-up are already in the villa, we heard a lot of rumours about bombshells and first up is none other than Boyzone member Ronan Keating's daughter Missy Keating.

Missy is making a name for herself in her own right with her modelling career really taking off in recently. She has even modelled for Pretty Little Thing, something contestants normally achieve after appearing on Love Island.

Ronan addressed the rumours during an interview with Good Morning Britain.

He said, "I haven’t heard anything", although he did add, "You never know. These kids are busy, all my kids, they’re all doing different things. I haven’t heard anything myself at the moment."

While he admitted to being a fan of the show, he confessed he would struggle to tune in to watch Missy. He said, "I don’t know how I’d feel about it" adding "I wouldn’t be able to watch."

Rumours were fuelled a couple of days ago when Missy posted a photo on Instagram with the caption, "Celebrating something today. Can you guess what? Wrong answers only....."

Many of her followers guessed she was joining the show. One person wrote, "Love island maybe 🤔 you’d be fabulous ❤️."

Others responded more humorously with someone commenting, "Eurovision 😂😂."

Missy is no stranger to reality TV. She recently appeared on Dancing With The Stars where she and her dance partner Ervinas Merfeldas were sadly the first contestants to be voted off. She also appeared on The Voice UK in 2019, as part of duo GGMK, although sadly they didn't make it past the first round.

While Missy didn't go into the villa, her brother Jack Keating did.

Missy was not the first contestant that was been rumoured to be joining the show. Here are the other rumoured contestants for the 2022 series of the show including Pete Wicks' pal and a FIT boxer...

Kat Harrison aka Geordie Shore's Marty McKenna's ex

Another face set to join the line-up is Geordie student Kat after bosses reportedly fell for her 'brains and beauty'. Kat previously dated Geordie Shore and Celebs Go Dating bad boy Marty McKenna and also worked as a model.

A source has told The Sun, "Kat is the mix for the next series of Love Island. She works as a model but is also a student at Northumbria uni.

"They think she has the full package, brains and beauty, and could bring a lot to the table. Kat really impressed and she should be a shoe-in for the show."

Kat is said to comment on the rumours, but we've got high hopes for a Love Island/Geordie crossover.

According to the earlier publication, a TV insider said, "Joshua is a perfect fit for the show. Bosses are hoping he’ll follow in the footsteps of boxer Tommy Fury, who was a huge hit.

"Joshua is really handsome but there is much more to him than that – the girls will go wild for him."

While Joshua has yet to be confirmed as a contestant on the show, we think he would be a great addition to the show.

Brad McDermott aka Zara McDermott's brother

In addition to Pete's pal, Zara McDermott's FIT brother Brad was apparently in talks to star in the series. The news comes almost four years after his sister appeared on the 2018 series, where she coupled up with Adam Collard. She's now happily in love with Made In Chelsea's Sam Thompson.

According to reports, Brad, who regularly features on Zara's Instagram, is keen to make a name for himself.

A source said, "Brad is a young, good looking guy, and he has seen how appearing on Love Island has completely transformed Zara’s life.

"Though she didn’t find long-term love, it has served as a great platform for her.

"She also had a great time there, and he thinks it would be a great laugh."

Sophie Draper aka footballer Matty Cash's ex

Sophie Draper, 22, who is a beautiful beautician from Nottingham was the first rumoured contestant. She has a famous ex-boyfriend in the shape of Premiership footballer Matty Cash, who plays for Aston Villa. They dated for FOUR YEARS before splitting suddenly in 2021.

A source said, "Sophie is a gorgeous girl who is really driven and determined to succeed.

"She has her own beauty salon and already leads a jet set lifestyle, which she likes showing off on Instagram, so she wouldn’t be fazed by being on TV."

They added, "Matty will be pretty shocked to see her looking for love on TV, but he publicly moved on pretty quickly."

Love Island 2022

Applications for Love Island 2022 opened earlier this year, giving people the opportunity to become the next Millie Court and Liam Reardon, who were crowned winners of the 2021 series and are still going strong.

Ahead of the new series, bosses were said to have made some changes to the applications process to encourage a diverse range of singletons to apply following calls for the show to include wider representation of different body types, ethnicities, races and sexualities.
