Meet the Love Island Australia contestants (before it premieres in Ireland)

It begins on July 23.

There's no denying that Love Island has basically become a summer staple over the last few years.

Which is why we were particularly buzzing to find out that an Australian version of the series began this year - and that it would be making its way to television screens over here.

More Love Island taking over our summer? Yes please.

Towards the end of this month, Love Island Australia will premiere in Ireland - with 12 new contestants entering a brand new villa, with a $50,000 up for grabs at the end of it.

And RTE's Eoghan McDermott will add a bit of Irish humour the show, as he provides the 'voice' of it all.

Love Island Australia is due to kick off exclusively on 3e on July 23 at 10.05pm - and these are the first batch of contestants.
