The bombshell hair extensions technician entered the villa in scenes that aired on Wednesday no sooner than poor old Brad McClelland had been dumped after a savage twist.
Spoilers have revealed AJ wastes no time in getting to know the boys and makes a beeline for Hugo on the sun deck.
‘You’re a very good looking guy and you’re lovely,’ she compliments him, to which he responds: ‘It’s nice that someone else has come in.’
‘Although you say you’re nice and don’t get me wrong, you’re nice! Sometimes the good ones are the dark horses,’ AJ says.
A coy Hugo replies: ‘You’ve got to keep some stuff back.’
‘You’re keeping that stuff for the right person,’ AJ tells him.
Could AJ be Hugo’s right person? Possibly, but he will have competition from fellow islander Teddy Soares, who also has a spot of one-on-one time with AJ.
The next day, AJ asks Teddy for a chat, and as the pair get to know each other Teddy asks: ‘Are you big on spirits and star signs and stuff?’
‘I’m a big star sign person and I don’t want to find out what yours is because I’ll judge you!’ she replies.
But AJ soon asks, prompting Teddy to reveal he’s an Aries.
‘Is it?’ she exclaims. ‘That’s actually my most compatible sign. I’m a Sagittarius. All my best relationships have been with Aries men.’
Speaking in the Beach Hut, Teddy hints he could be swayed from his current partner, Faye Winter.
‘It was interesting to have Faye in my mind because I haven’t made things official with Faye,’ he says.
‘AJ is definitely someone I’d be looking to certainly speak to and get to know more about. There is a good old mystery and intrigue there which is always enticing isn’t it?’
Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
