THE Love Islanders were stunned as a new girl made a surprise appearance during their latest challenge.

The contestants were taking part in a girls v boys "dirty dancers" contest when Rebecca Gormley arrived.

The rest of the girls had already danced for the boys, who were wearing heart rate monitors to see whose moves got their pulses racing the most.

The contestants had no idea there was a twist in store – until former Miss Newcastle Rebecca, 21, turned up to give the boys one last dance.

"Oh my God!" shrieked the girls, as their jaws dropped.

Shaughna Phillips, who is coupled with Callum Jones, moaned: "Give me a break!"

It was later revealed that of all the girls, Rebecca had Callum and Connor Durman's hearts racing the most.

Each boy was told they would get a date with the newcomer, leaving Shaughna and Connor's love interest Sophie Piper looking distinctly unimpressed.

The arrival of part-time model and carer was teased at the end of Sunday night’s instalment of the ITV2 show.

Describing herself as “fearless and spontaneous”, the 21-year-old said she already has her eye on Connagh Howard, Callum Jones and Mike Boateng – and will go “as far as I need to go” to get the man she wants.

Gormley, who came sixth in Miss England 2019 and won Miss Newcastle in 2018, said: “I like a ‘Jack the lad’.

“He’s got to be the centre of attention, easy to get along with, and someone who gets involved with the chat.”

She said of her game plan: “I need to chat to them. I haven’t seen enough of them to know how I’m going to approach it. I like funny guys, so I’m thinking making the guy laugh is a tick in the box.

“But no smooth moves, I’ll just be myself.”

Love Island continues on ITV2.
