She says: ‘Ellie Brown is my best friend, she is amazing and we are like sisters. My mam and her mam were best friends so we’ve known each other since we were little. We’ve always stuck together. 

‘I know Zara McDermott through Ellie too. I also know Adam Collard well, he’s such a lovely boy. We went for dinner and were pictured and it was suggested we were dating but we’re just friends. 

‘I know of Amber, who is in the villa, I see her on a night out but I don’t know her too well so it’ll be good to see her in the villa.’

Having been officially single for a year and rules out online dating as an option, Harley claims she is ready to find the man of her dreams.

Despite knowing of Amber, it’s loud-mouthed Maura Higgins and Molly-Mae Hague who Harley thinks are going to be her closest pals in the villa.

Adding fuel to the fire, Harley admits she ‘really fancies’ her ex Michael Griffiths and confesses she could ‘definitely just look at him’.

However, the blonde bombshell also cherry picked the ‘perfect man’ Ovie and ‘funny’ Anton Danyluk as potential contenders for her heart.

She says: ‘Ovie is absolutely beautiful, he is stunning so he is basically my perfect man. I also think Anton comes across really funny so I’d be open to getting to know him. I really fancy Michael but I think he is a bit misunderstood. He’s lovely to look at though, I could definitely just look at him!’

Competition is as fierce as ever in the villa, with India also getting ready to stir up the drama on the island.

Self-confessed ‘wild’ India also has her heart set on fun-loving Ovie as she hopes he will stay single just for her and in another breath, she gushes over how good looking firefighter Michael is.

The bombshell is hoping she’ll find more luck in the Love Island villa after being cheated on, taking them back and finding out it was a huge mistake.

She asserts: ‘I have been cheated on and I’m far too forgiving, I’ve taken people back in the past – bad move. I am loyal so I doubt I’ll have a wandering eye.’ 

India has dipped her toe in the stormy waters of online dating but she confesses she deleted her apps after failing to find a long lasting romance.

‘I have done a little bit of online dating but it’s not been very successful so I’ve given up,’ she says.

Also on the scene, Greg is finally ready for love once again after having his heart broken by his most recent ex-girlfriend.

The Irish hunk reveals he had been saving to buy his ex a ring when she called it a day on their four-year romance because he travels a lot for work.

Completely devastated, the tattooed star didn’t put himself on the dating market for six months but now he is ready to get back in the game.

‘After my last relationship I lost my faith in love so hopefully going into the villa can get my belief in love back.’ He admits.

‘I’ve only been single for the last year. I was with a girl for 4 years before that and in a relationship for 5 years before that. I’ve always been in relationships. 

‘I saw myself marrying the last girl I was with, I was saving up for a ring but she called it a day after our lives together just didn’t work out. 

‘Out of respect to myself, her and how great our relationship was, I didn’t date anyone for 6 months after we broke up so have only been open to getting out there again in the past few months.’ 

And Greg has got his heart set on fellow Irish beauty Maura because she is ‘good craic’.

He says: ‘I’d say me and Maura will hit it off straight away, being two Irish people and she’s hilarious. She’s very naturally funny and she’s gorgeous as well so you never know.’
