Love Island is finally set to return to our screens in 2021 after having its last two series cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

ITV scrapped the series in winter 2021 and summer 2020 due to the crisis, so all the focus will be on July's offering of flirty singletons as they enter the Love Island villa.

Rumours already abound as to who the producers have signed up, The Mirror reports - from a stunning fire-breather, to a boxer with a very famous relative.

Here are the rumoured stars of Love Island 2021.

Harley Benn, 24, son of professional boxer Nigel Benn, is rumoured to be heading into the Love Island villa in Majorca this summer.

Harley, also a boxer, was conceived when Nigel, 57, had an affair with his mother Lisa Andrews, while his second wife Carolyne was pregnant.

It's reported Nigel only accepted he was Harley's dad after a paternity test proved it, and the two fought publicly on Twitter but have reportedly buried the hatchet.

Despite being a middleweight champion, Harley had a softer side, and he holds one-to-one ­sessions with troubled youngsters where they learn respect and how to manage anger issues – while keeping healthy too.

"He’s had video meetings with the casting team and everyone is very excited at the prospect of having him on the show."

Fire-eating beauty queen Alexis Bailey is reported to be one of the singletons heading into the 2021 Love Island villa.

The multi-talented aerial dancer is said to be fresh from a long-term relationship and looking for a new romance.

A source told The Sun : 'She loves sex and is always talking about it. She’s very open about it but is incredibly likeable and loves to party.

'There are no limits as far as she is concerned and she very much wears her heart on her sleeve. It’s fair to say she will bring some heat to the villa.'

Love Island bosses have reportedly signed up Chelsea party boy James Price for it's 2021 series.

MailOnline reports that the recruitment consultant, 23, has history with former Love Islander Lucie Donlan.

The pair struck up a romance in 2018 - the summer before she found fame on the show.

It's reported that James - who has his eye on blondes - is hoping to bring Worcestershire Sauce to the villa this summer.

A source told the publication: "He's cheeky, fun and handsome – and will be a sure-fire hit with the female contestants, while he's also on the lookout for his dream girl.

"Lucie Donlan is his type on paper. They grew close in Newquay the summer before she went on the show but their flirtation didn't grow into a relationship.

"While James is from Worcester, his group of friends reside in Fulham and he spent a lot of time before the pandemic partying in Chelsea."

While James is yet to find love, his ex Lucie is now in a long-term relationship with Luke Mabbott, who starred on the winter series of Love Island last year.

A spokesman for ITV2 told The Mirror: "No decisions have been made on the line up for this year's Love Island."
