Could the new series of Love Island see familiar face Riah Read join the lineup?

According to reports, the TV presenter is currently 'in talks' to sign up for the dating show's second series this summer. A source has teased to Daily Star: "The sexy new cast will certainly have lots to talk about when they all get together."

The paper claims that Riah will be heading out to the Love Island villa, following her brief romance with TOWIE star Pete Wicks. She and Pete were first linked back in February and at the time, Pete had told Reveal he was off the market.

He said: "It's really early days, it's not like there is marriage on the cards – it's only been a couple of weeks. But, I am seeing someone."

Things didn't workout, however, and just weeks later, Pete went public with his new romance with Megan McKenna. They are now an official couple.

Riah was also linked to Jordan Davies (Megan's ex-fiancé), although he has since said the pair are just friends.

The official lineup for Love Island is yet to be confirmed by ITV. It was announced the show would be returning for a second series back in February.

Since then, a new trailer has been released ahead of Love Island's return, teasing: "In the race for love, it's survival of the fittest."

Riah isn't the only famous face tipped to appear this time round, with Lady Colin Campbell's on Dima also rumoured to be in talks with the show. Love Island star Naomi Ball also revealed she had been approached by producers to appear on the second series.

Suggesting she won't be, though, Naomi shared a screenshot of the message to Twitter, tweeting alongside it: "Seriously @LoveIsland."
