The singer-songwriter is the ex-girlfriend of 2018 Islander Jack Fowler, 26.
The curly-haired beauty had been in a nine-year relationship with her childhood sweetheart before they split up so she could focus on music.
She then dated former Islander Jack for a few months, but their romance fizzled out.
Antigoni has referenced her love life in her music, including single Red Flag, which she released earlier this year.
The song is about her desire to meet men with ‘red flags’ in order not to fall in love having just got out of a long-term relationship.

Speaking of her relationship history, Antigoni said: ‘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.’
‘I’ve only ever been in love once – I don’t think I’ve been in love since. I think I fall in lust and infatuation quickly.’
The blonde beauty will stun the male islanders when they discover her relaxing on a sunbed in the villa, and she doesn’t waste anytime getting to know them with a fun speed-dating session.

Speaking in the Beach Hut, Jay says: ‘Seeing someone new in the Villa for the first time, it’s surreal! She’s a really attractive girl and I’m looking forward to getting to know her.’
