TWO former Love Island contestants from Essex are heading back to the show for a special spin-off featuring past love-hunters.

Campaigner Georgia Harrison and YouTuber Kaz Kamwi are among the contestants joining Love Island: All-Stars.

The spin-off of the ITV2 reality dating series sees past contestants return to the villa for a second chance at love.

Kaz, from Witham, is one of those heading back to the island.

The 29-year-old, who was a part of season seven, was asked about how she would feel coming across an ex when she enters the villa again.

She said: “The thing is, I’m a bad b**ch so I will handle it with as much grace as I can.”

Another former contestant from Essex heading back into the villa is Georgia Harrison.

Georgia, 29, who had been on series three of Love Island as a 'bombshell', is returning as part of the main cast.

She said: “As much as this year’s been amazing, it’s been heavy at times and pretty serious with all of my campaigning work.

“This is the last year of my 20s so I want to go in the villa and have some fun and hopefully meet someone that I can fall in love with.

“I’m lucky in the sense that I’ve got everything in my life that I could possibly wish for, apart from love.”

She has been campaigning to tackle violence against women and girls after ex-partner Stephen Bear, a winner of Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother, was jailed for posting intimate footage of her online.

Georgia said she is “more confident” this time around and wants to have “as much fun as possible”.

TV personalities Chris Taylor and Georgia Steel, and semi-professional footballer Toby Aromolaran, are also among those set for the show, with Maya Jama returning to host.

Hannah Elizabeth from the first series, Anton Danyluk from the fifth, Demi Jones from the sixth and Jake Cornish from the seventh are also among the batch of hopefuls.

Love Island: All-Stars will launch on ITV2 and ITVX on January 15.
