New Love Island bombshell Antigoni Buxton has a famous mum and an Islander ex

Last night’s episode of Love Island gave viewers a glimpse of the newest bombshell to enter the villa.

The Islanders have only just waved goodbye to contestants Amber and Ikenna, who were dumped from the villa in a brutal double elimination last night.

But the teaser for tonight’s episode revealed that a new girl is joining the rest of the Love Island line-up already.

Viewers got a glimpse of a blonde beauty with curly locks strutting into the villa before the boys spotted her lounging in the sun.

The brand new bombshell is singer and songwriter Antigoni Buxton.

With Dami single and Ekin-Su and Jay’s relationship looking rocky, Antigoni’s entry into the villa could really start to shake things up for the Islanders.

Here’s everything you need to know about the stunning bombshell, including her career, dating history and famous family member.

Who is Antigoni Buxton?

Antigoni Buxton is a singer from North London.

The 26-year-old also has Cypriot roots and describes her music as a mix of “hip hop with UK beats and Greek/Middle Eastern elements”.

Antigoni was signed to Island Records when she was just 20 but has since left to start her own label Sirena Records.

The singer released her latest single Hit List last month.

But she’s taken a break from her music to join the cast of Love Island for this year’s series.

Antigoni is looking to have some fun during her time in the villa, saying: "I really just want to say ‘yes’ to things. Why not? It’ll be fun.

"I’m a Cypriot girl and I love being in the sun. I’ve got nothing to lose!"

Antigoni Buxton’s dating history

Antigoni was in a long-term relationship with her childhood sweetheart, who she dated for nine years.

But the pair split so that Antigoni could focus on her music career.

The singer is already familiar with dating Love Islanders, as she briefly dated Season 4 star Jack Fowler for a few months.

However, Antigoni has now been single for quite a while, saying: "I’ve been single for almost a year and a half and for the whole of the last year my goal has been to have as many different experiences as possible.”

Who is Antigoni’s famous mum?

There are already a few Islanders in the villa this year with famous family members.

Gemma Owen is the daughter of football legend Michael Owen, while Jay Younger's grandad Tommy Younger was also a famous footballer.

Antigoni is now the third Islander with a famous family member, as her mum is celebrity chef Tonia Buxton.

Tonia, 54, hosts My Greek Kitchen and My Cypriot Kitchen on the Discovery Channel and also makes appearances as a guest host on Sunday Brunch.

Tonia recently shared her delight that Antigoni would be going on Love Island when posting a sweet collection of pictures on Instagram.

She captioned the snaps: "I can not believe that my @antigoni is in the Love Island Villa, she mentioned she would be sunbathing this week I didn’t think she meant in Mallorca!

"We are all so excited for you and know you will be amazing! You have always been an island girl, so I know you will fit right in!"

It also looks like Antigoni has some famous friends too; she hosted a star-studded event for the launch of her single Red Flag, which was attended by celebs including Anthony Joshua.
