Love Island UK is back for 2022 and with it, a brand new set of singletons looking for love.

Now in its eighth season, the OG series — which you can stream fast-tracked right here in Australia — features some young, hot and horny Brits, plus a whole new format of the show.

According to MailOnline, 100k applicants from across the UK applied for their chance to be on the show. However, only THREE cast members were chosen by application, and the rest were all scouted! Say what?!

However, as we know, Love Island loves to drop a bomb or two so, newbies entering throughout the season may have also applied.
