A Dinnington dancer is among 12 new contestants set to join hit ITV2 show Love Island.

Savanna Darnell, 22, will join the villa tonight, alongside 11 other new faces including current contestant Jack Fincham's ex-girlfriend Ellie Jones.

Savanna, daughter of August Darnell, frontman of musician Kid Creole, has already tasted fame, albeit at a young age, when she was chosen as a baby to be the face of a nappy brand.

Other new faces set to join the villa tonight include 25-year-old hairdresser Grace Wardle from London; make-up artist Kazimir Crossley, 23, also from London and Charlie Williams, 24, a tanning shop assistant from Bath.

Savanna landed a role in Thriller Live, a globe-trotting West End musical which celebrates the career of Michael Jackson at the age of 20 on the day she graduated from college.

Aged three to 16, she danced with SDK, in Dinnington, and then progressed to the Midland Academy of Dance and Drama, in Nottingham.

See her entrance into the villa in Love Island on ITV2 tonight at 9pm.
