LOVE Island’s first ‘confirmed’ contestant is 23-year-old Sav Berry, according to reports.
The social media influencer is rumoured to be taking part after pics were leaked of him in summer-wear from show alumnus Kem Cetinay’s Primark range as he posed in front of a pink screen.

A representative for Love Island told The Sun Online: “Any stories surrounding the line up are pure speculation and we will confirm this year’s line up in due course.”
It comes after we exclusively revealed show bosses were in advanced talks to sign Rochelle Humes’ lookalike sister for the new series.
Producers of the show are “desperate” for Soph Piper, 20, to join the line-up of singletons jetting off to Majorca this summer.

A source close to the programme has revealed the offer is on the table from Love Island – but Soph is still yet to make a final decision.
An insider said: “ITV2 bosses are really keen for Soph to be the star of this year’s series.
“Last year they had Dani and her claim to fame with dad Danny captured viewers and boasted the show’s ratings.
“This year they’re hoping to do the same with Rochelle and her youngest sister, who’s the spitting image of her.
