Who is Hugo Hammond?
The 24-year-old from Hampshire is a PE teacher in his real life and has joined the show to find love.
He said: “I’ve been single for a while now. With the current climate, it’s been really hard to get back into dating. I saw it as an opportunity to have an amazing fun summer and put myself back out there.
“I teach secondary school PE. Absolutely love my job. I love all my sports. It’s great to be able to pass on that enthusiasm to be physically active to the younger generation and hopefully they feel the same about me teaching them.”
On a promo for the show he says he is “definitely ready to settle” and is a “relationship kind of guy”.
