Three Irish contestants are headed for Love Island's Casa Amor this year, including two Dubs.

Salma Naran and Kaila Troy will be hoping to turn heads in order to secure their place in the main villa.

Here's everything you need to know about this year's Irish contingent:

Salma Naran

Naran admits that she has “never been in love” and signed up for the show to make a connection with someone.

“What better place to have a tunnel vision and really finding your one? It’s the perfect atmosphere; you don’t have the outside world distractions,” she said.

“It looks like time moves fast in there, in a good way – it’s like, do you actually like me or not? In the real world, it’s so wishy-washy.

"With this, it’s just, you need to know.”

The influencer, who has over 43,000 followers on Instagram, said that what she will add to the villa is “a lot of vibrant energy", and that she is usually “the bubbliest person in the room.”

“I am chatty once I’m comfortable around you. I can be shy at times if I don’t like the energy. I do pick up on energies a lot,” she said.

“I don’t like confrontation. I am a very fiery person but I would never start something just because. If I’m confronted, then I probably would get fiery. I don’t bother people if they don’t bother me.”

Kaila Troy

DJ Troy admitted she previously travelled a lot with her work.

“I was DJ-ing everywhere, all around the world; really fun, exciting, very fast-paced, meeting a lot of interesting characters.

"I’d be around a lot of different artists in the industry. I love the energy. Sometimes it is hard dating as I am travelling a lot,” she said.

She describes herself as “very competitive” and said she wouldn’t have gotten as far as she had in her industry without that drive.

Her friends would say that she’s “very energetic” and is tee-total.

“I never got into drinking, it was never my thing. But I’d be the one up all night still and they’d be falling asleep.

"They’d say I was very outgoing and hardworking for sure. What I want I go and get it. Independent, too. And caring and loving."
