Hang on, an ex Eastenders star is heading into Casa Amor?

In for a treat.

After rumours upon rumours of who would be appearing in this year's Casa Amor, or if it would even appear on Love Island this year, we finally know who is heading in.


With one familiar face (Jack Keating) appearing on the roaster, there's another that had people's heads turning, and not in the Love Island sense of the word.

A former EastEnders star is set to make an appearance in the Casa Amor villa, which will be on our screens tonight.

As the girls and boys are split up, with the girls heading off this year and the boys remaining in the villa for the ultimate test, we see six new boys and girls coming to keep the original islanders company.

Summer Botwe is one of the gals heading into the main villa to meet the boys, and Ekin-Su will be getting a run for her money as she'll no longer be the only soap actress.


The 22 year old said in her pre-show interview: "I was an extra in EastEnders once when I was younger – I was in a scene with my dad and Stacey, played by Lacey Turner. My dad is a garage MC and DJ.”

Love Island sure does love a connection to the BBC soap, don't they?

Summer has said she has her eye on Dami, who we all know is more than happy in his couple with Imdiyah.


She said: “I feel like I might end up bringing some drama because I do want to go full force with Dami… but I’m definitely just bringing fun and good vibes for sure.

“Dami is someone that I definitely feel like I have my eye on and definitely want to pursue
the most out of all the boys. His dress sense is really good, he’s funny, he’s just like an allrounder completely.

“Everyone loves him and he’s like their go-to and I love that about a person. His vibes are immaculate and I’m drawn to that.”

Casa Amor returns on Love Island tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media Two.
