Love Island contestants
The contestants look for romance on the islands of Fiji
Pierce Brosnan's son Chris and Paul Gascoigne's step-daughter Bianca are to take part in the new series of ITV's reality show, Love Island.

The programme sees 11 contestants "dating" and competing for public votes while living together in Fiji.

Other names confirmed for the show include ex-Boyzone singer Shane Lynch, Strictly Come Dancing's Brendan Cole and socialite Lady Victoria Hervey.

Hosted by Patrick Kielty and Fearne Cotton, Love Island begins on Monday.

It will also feature former Eternal singer Kelle Bryan, glamour model Alicia Douvall, and Hollyoaks actor Lee Otway.

Reality show veteran Sophie Anderton, Streets singer Leo Ihenacho and DJ Colleen Shannon also join the cast of the reality show.

The first series, shown last summer, was critically derided but managed to get higher ratings than its rival, Big Brother, on several occasions.

This year, producers have dropped the word Celebrity from the programme's title.
