Meet the two Irish Love Island contestants joining the villa

Love Island is firmly ahead in the reality show stakes this summer and is trouncing Big Brother in the ratings.

We currently get it a day behind ITV over here but that hasn't stopped Irish viewers from becoming addicted, so they will be happy to hear that there are two of our own heading into the villa this week.

First up is Rob Lipsett, a Rathgar native who's obsessed with the gym and if his Instagram is anything to go by, is rarely seen without his top off. He will fit right in.

25-year-old Rob has a YouTube channel dedicated to fitness that has over 250K subscribers to date.

There he is now.


Next up, we have 25-year-old model Shannen Reilly McGrath from Tallaght. Shannen was recently made an ambassador for tanning product Cocoa Brown and made it to the final of Miss Ireland in 2014.

She will be arriving in the villa later in the week and describes herself as "Ireland's Very Own Dublin Barbie".

No doubt the two of them will cause quite a stir, sure who could resist those looks and an Irish brogue?
