Glasgow born Ella Thomas has been announced as one of the islanders set to hit the villa in Love Island’s 2023 summer series.

Love Island’s 2023 summer series is just days away, and ITV have confirmed who will be entering the villa. This year’s long list of islanders headed to Majorca includes Glasgow’s own Ella Thomas.

Just months after Kai and Sanam took the crown as winners of the 2023 winter series - ITV are back to spice up your evenings. The couple won the winter series by a landslide victory, with Ron and Lana coming in second place and Tom and Sammie coming in third after a whirlwind season.

A spokesperson for the show confirmed the show would be returning for a summer series, saying: “Returning to ITVX and ITV2 in June, the Islanders must do their best to flirt, date, couple up in a bid to avoid being ‘dumped’ from the Island. With new arrivals, heads may turn, while others will prove their true feelings.

“From romance and heart-to-hearts, to betrayal, bombshells and broken hearts, there’s never a dull moment in the ultimate search for love. More texts, fire pit gatherings and challenges await the lovestruck Islanders, meaning there’ll be plenty for them to dish the dirt on in the Beach Hut. Twists and turns will follow every step of the way, with shock recouplings, unexpected breakups and dramatic dumpings.”

So, who is Ella Thomas? Here’s everything you need to know.
