When it comes to Love Island’s twists and turns, you never completely know what’s coming next when it comes to wild cards and surprise appearances.

And after plenty of rumours, it was finally confirmed last night that series two bombshell, Kady McDermott has returned to the villa. Seven years after her first appearance on Love Island, on which she finished in third place with Scott Thomas, the 27 year old is back to find love.

'The next person I’m with I want that to be marriage and babies,' Kady said before heading into the villa. 'I don’t want to waste any more time with the wrong people - so I think I’ll be a lot pickier than what I was when I was previously in the Villa. Seven years on, I think I’m allowed to be pickier now. In the Villa I think I’ll take my time.

Kady gave fans some unforgettable dramatic moments during her time on the show, including her showdown with fellow contestant Tina when she set her eyes on Kady’s partner Scott. She set fans on edge by shouting abuse at Tina when she arrived back from a date with Scott and calling her dress ‘sh*t’, a rather memorable example of the messiness of Love Island couplings and recouplings.

And Kady isn't afraid to show off her fiery personality again.

'I think I’m known from season two for being so chaotic,' she said. 'People always ask, "Do you have regrets?" expecting me to say yes, but I was so true to myself and I was 100% authentic. I’ll still be like that now, but seven years on, I am more mature. I’m still the fiery pocket rocket but I know what I want and what I don’t want. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still going to be me and the fire I have is in my soul, I’ll never get rid of that and I love that about me, but I’m a lot more emotionally mature now, so I know how to navigate things better. I’ve grown up a lot.'

Admitting that last time she was on the show, it was a case of 'tunnel vision' for Scott, she's keen to explore a few connections this time around, and has her eye on Zachariah, Tyrique, and Mitch.

'Zach’s my number one, Tyrique on looks, but he might need his ego putting down a little bit,' Kady revealed. 'I also want to get to know Mitch. Age is a big thing for me, immaturity in a man for me, it’s just a complete no. I don’t like boys that are too cheeky, I just don’t trust them. Zach seems the most chilled and and is nice to look at.'

And while she's keen to make friends – picking out Whitney, Catherine, and Ella as potential new besties – it seems she's already prepping for clashes with the girls too, admitting, 'I’m a Virgo and I’ve never had a friend that’s a Virgo - Jess and Molly are both Virgos. They’re the two I think will either go one way or the other with me.'

After calling it quits with Scott in 2017, Kady was linked to Aston Villa footballer Matty Cash and ex-TOWIE star Myles Barnett. She admits she often rushes things and, this time around, she wants to take her time.

'I don’t really date, I seem to just get into a relationship, I don’t know what that’s about. The next person I’m going to be with I’m not going to rush it and I’m going to be picky as they need to be the right person.'

Here's hoping Mr Right is waiting for you in that villa, Kady.
