Get to know your new favourite reality stars!

The time has FINALLY come for ten sexy Australian singles to mingle in a mansion in Mallorca, Spain. We're talking about the premiere of Love Island Australia, of course, which is set to air this Sunday 27th of May.

In case you don't know, Love Island Australia will follow five beautiful women and five ab-tastic men as they descend on a mansion in Mallorca. The ten singles will couple up in a bid to 'find love,' but new contestants will arrive regularly, putting 'formed relationships' to the test.

As we count down the days until the first-ever Australian season airs, and the drama begins, we'll be taking the time to get to know the contestants on Instagram...
