It's that time of the series again where producers decide to really shake things up for the Islanders.
Yes, it is time for Love Island to reintroduce the rival villa of Casa Amor, where a new group of boys and girls will enter the running to find love.
Many won't survive past the limited time the neighbouring villa is open for business, but some lucky few may be about to turn heads, tread on toes, and meet their types on paper.
For the rest, it is what it is.
So here's who is joining Tommy, Amber, Maura, and co at Casa Amor in the 2019 series of Love Island.
Love Island full line-up for Casa Amor
From: Isle of Man
Describing himself as "a cheerful, happy, charming, funny bloke", Stevie rates himself an 8 out of 10 and thinks his best feature is his blue eyes.
When asked who he has his eye on in the villa, Stevie said:
"Lucie would be my number one".
He did, however, show a liking for two other villa ladies: "Arabella is beautiful, I couldn’t believe my eyes when she walked through the villa. Maura is also stunning."
Will the ladies be charmed by the student?
Job: Personal trainer and ex Royal Navy officer
Harry Redknapp's personal trainer Marvin could be trouble as he describes himself as "strongly opinionated and very competitive".
He added: "I speak my mind, but that can upset people sometimes. I am very quick to judge, and sometimes do that too quickly. I’m not very empathetic either."
Rating himself an 8.7 out of 10, Marvin said: "Anna has definitely caught my eye but then recently Lucie has as I feel like she’s very similar to me in the sense that if she doesn’t want to hang around with a group she won’t force herself to do, which I’ve admired."
There are two guys he isn't very keen on.
"Danny might be a bit boring and Curtis irritates me," he said.
Job: Professional footballer
Describing himself as "very positive" and with "decent banter", footballer Dennon gets "annoyed with people that have bad hygiene".
Dennon has liked what he's seen of fiery villa resident Maura.
"I do like how Maura is turning out to be. She’s really feisty and could be a handful."
On his relationship with fidelity he said: "I’ve cheated in the past but I was seeing someone exclusively, not technically in a relationship."
Essex boy George has a self-described "positive energy and mindset" and says: "I’m outgoing and I’m a good laugh. "
On his looks, George said: "People compliment me on my jawline."
He has his eye on two of the closest girls in the villa too.
"Amber and Anna – Amber is my type, they are the sort of girls I’d go for looks-wise and Anna is really pretty and she’s got a nice body."
He also fancies Samira Mighty from the last series.
On going after a girl who is coupled up, George said: "If I see the girl I want and we have that connection, I’m going to go for it, I don’t have any loyalty to anyone in there at the moment."
Job: Bathroom salesman
Seeing himself as "a cheeky lad" with "the gift of the gab", bathroom salesman Dan gave himself a flattering rating out of 10 for looks.
"I would say 10 but… I should be modest so I’ll say 9."
On the girls he is interested in, Dan said: "I do fancy Amber but I know she seems loved up with Michael. I’ll test the water with it though. Then I’ll probably go for Lucie and Maura."
He also said that immortal line: "I’m not bothered about treading on any toes."
Job: Pro basketball player
The self-labelled "wildcard", basketball player Ovie said: "I’m a competitor, it comes with my job, it’s built into my DNA."
On his adaptability skills, Ovie added: "I left home at 16 to chase my dreams as a basketball player and since then have lived in six different countries and come across different people and cultures."
Having gone to school with Alexandra Cane and having a crush on Meghan Markle , Ovie has his eye on Anna "from the beginning".
Watch out, Jordan!
Job: Business developer
Hailing from Croydon, business developer Lavena wants to sell some romance and describes herself as "a five times two out of ten."
On her mission to find love, Lavena admitted: "I’ve been on my own for four years so whoever I meet in there I will fall for."
With a crush on last series favourite Jack Fowler, Lavena has her eye on some of the guys.
"If I had my pick, I’d probably go for Michael but I feel like he's really coupled up. But Anton seems very funny so we would bounce off each other."
With a desire to be "an Arabian Princess in the villa", hostess Nabila says she will "get on well with the boys".
She has her eyes set on one boy in particular, though.
"I have got my eye on Anton. I think he is cheeky and I think he’s misunderstood by the girls in the villa."
On her looks, Nabila said: "I like my eyes and I like the fact that I have hips, my hips are really shapely so I like my hourglass figure."
Job: Recruitment consultant
Newbie Joanna has a major downfall going in: "I’m far too honest and sometimes I should keep my mouth shut."
Does this mean the recruitment consultant will break girl-code? Not on her watch.
"Girl code is simply being honest to a girl’s face. If a girl is coupled up with someone and you want to get to know that person, then girl code for me is explaining exactly how you’re feeling to the other girl – it’s honesty and face to face."
She is hoping it's either Anton or Tom who will "give their all in a relationship".
Job: Makeup artist
Blondie Belle was hard-pressed to find some character-flaws for herself: "I can be insecure at times I suppose and I am messy."
On her looks, she said: "I would give myself a solid 8 or 9. I get a lot of compliments on my eyes and my boobs."
Having fancied previous contestant Alex Bowen, Belle said she has her eyes on Anton and Tom.
She's known past winner Dani Dyer since childhood as her own father is The Football Factory actor Tamer Hassan, giving Belle a " link to the famous world".
Seeing herself as "impulsive, impatient and stubborn" but with "a bubbly personality", Jourdan has taken a liking to new Tom, describing him as "beautiful".
On her brushes with fame, the model said: "I did a double page spread for Elle last year, and I did Vogue Italia."
She is ready to ruffle some feathers in the villa, however.
"I’m going to have to tread on toes. Initially it gives me a knot in my stomach but I have to do what I have to do."
Job: VIP host
Wild by name, wild by nature?
VIP host Maria describes herself as "clingy", saying: "I am emotional and I am loving."
Saying best feature is her lips, Maria said: "I can be quite stubborn, I am an only child so I often expect to get my own way and I’m quite bossy."
She is very keen on Anton but admits concerns.
"Deep down, it is Anton but I just can’t stop thinking about when he went in and talked about having a wandering eye."
We'll have to wait and see who gets Anton's heart – if anyone.
Love Island airs every night on ITV2.
