Love Island is back, and a fresh cast of new islanders are in the villa hoping to find love.

The sexy singletons are spending the summer in a luxury Majorcan villa–while reality TV fans tune in every night to find out who will hit it off and who will simply be pied off.

The first wave of Love Island contestants coupled up and started getting to know each other. But with heads already turned, how long will the couples last?

One of the original islanders is Dami Hope–find out everything we know about him so far…

Who is Dami Hope?

Dami Hope is a 26-year-old senior microbiologist from Dublin.

Dami said he wanted to join Love Island to put himself out there and “get some new experiences.”

He’s been single for four years, but his mum has been pestering him about getting married, as she was already pregnant with Dami at his age. But Dami’s not just in Majorca to make his mum happy, he said: “I’m actually enthusiastic to see if I can find someone.”


Dami’s hoping to be himself in the villa, but warned: “I don’t know if I will cause trouble, I’ll try not to cause trouble but sometimes you don’t intentionally cause trouble–but it happens!”

His family would describe him as funny and as a joker, Dami says, “They’d say I’m funny, I’m a joker, they’d probably say I cause trouble and I like a lot of girls.”

On whether or not he’ll be causing trouble in the villa, Dami said: “I’m respectful, I wouldn’t force anything. If someone isn’t eager to get to know me I wouldn’t force anything but if she’s eager to get to know me, it’s fair game–I’m going to get that girl!”

Dami believes that he’s very passionate, and always puts the person in his relationship first–traits that the microbiologist believes is down to him being an Aries.

He said: “I’m really good at being in a team and actually looking after each other.”

However, the Dubliner thinks he’s single at the moment because even though he’s met some “pretty good catches,” there’s “just something that is not there,” for him.

When it comes to his type on paper, Dami may not have one, as he explained his dating history is  “very diverse.” He said: “I’ve dated different people from different cultures. I’m very open-minded about it.”
