Mehdi Edno is one of the first stars confirmed to be heading into the Love Island 2023 villa!

Love Island 2023 sees the hit ITV dating show returning to our screens for the second of two seasons in what ITV has called "the year of love". With Winter Love Island 2023 now over and done with, we're heading to Mallorca along with host Maya Jama and a fresh lineup of islanders for another summer that's bound to be packed with drama. 

Mehdi Edno is one of the ten singletons who'll be heading into the villa when the show's tenth series starts airing on ITV2 and ITVX. Asked why he signed up, Mehdi said: "I've been single now for over two years. I've watched the show before, and my friends always say I should go on it — they say I'm made for it! So let's see if they're right or not."
