Irish social media star Lucy Plunkett has been linked to the Love Island 2021 line-up.

The new series will kick off later this month, with Laura Whitmore returning as host alongside her husband Iain Stirling – who is the show’s voiceover artist.

While the line-up is yet to be announced, a host of singletons have already been linked to this year’s series.

According to The Sun, 20-year-old Lucy from Dublin is the latest rumoured contestant for the return of the popular dating show.

A friend of Lucy told the publication: “She was in a long term relationship and she thinks she is now ready to find someone again after having her heart broken.”

“She is very picky so I think she may find it hard to find someone. She’s looking for a man who is loyal and isn’t too controlling. She’s very much a free spirit who beats to her own drum.”

“[Love Island bosses] contacted her through Instagram to go on an audition. She had to do multiple rounds of auditions but was told she had a really good chance as the producers loved her,” the insider added.

“She’s very excited and can’t wait to represent Dublin. She is the first Dubliner to be on the show from the northside and wants to show Dubliner’s humour.”

“I expect her to be herself. She sometimes may come across as mean or a b**** because of her honest nature but she is a girl’s girl and is a sweetheart once you get to know her.”

“But if someone crosses her she won’t have a problem speaking her mind, she can be problematic!” they said.

Lucy has over 12.9K followers on Instagram and owns her own clothing brand called Lu le label.
