If you’re a fan of Love Island, then you know Casa Amor is where shit goes down… And where the show gets a lot more interesting.
For those of you who don’t know, Casa Amor is where all your fave couples go to die. Okay, maybe not all of them. But it definitely throws a spanner in the works. It’s a completely second Villa, where our current islanders split off from their couples and meet a bunch of new faces, all of them with hopes of making their way into the main house. At the end of the week, our islanders can choose to stick – to return to their previous partner, or to twist – and couple up with someone from Casa Amor, sacking off whoever they were previously with.
It typically produces the most iconic moments in the series: Kem choosing Chyna over Amber, Georgia being LOYAL, Dani and Jack reuniting, and of course… Ovie Soko. But what will it mean for this year’s cast? It’s time to meet our Casa Amor islanders…
