London Cypriot singer-songwriter Antigoni Buxton has entered the “Love Island” villa on ITV 2’s reality dating programme.
The series, which is filmed in Mallorca, introduced Antigoni on Wednesday 22nd June.
Show bosses had teased the new “bombshell” twist on the previous night’s cliff-hanger.
The 26-year-old North London musician is a long-time friend of LGR and she impressed her fellow islanders, with one islander heard saying that Antigoni is a “ray of sunshine” and “on the friendship level she is lovely”.
It appears that her warmth and radiance also won her TV admirers with the programme’s fervent fan-base. Many avid viewers of the show had taken to Twitter to applaud her “good-natured vibes and positive energy”, instantly becoming a fan favourite of the show.
Antigoni was signed to Island Records when she was just 20 years old and has gone on to have a successful start to her music career.
Her latest single “Hit List” released last month, mixes R’n’B with Greek/Cypriot elements and has already entered London Greek Radio playlist in recent weeks.
Antigoni is the daughter of celebrity chef Tonia Buxton, who’s a regular guest on “Sunday Bunch” on TV.
Tonia is also the consultant chef at The Real Greek restaurants and the presenter of “My Greek Kitchen” and “My Cypriot Kitchen” on the Discovery Channel.
Antigoni previously dated 2018 contestant Jack Fowler for a few months, but their romance fizzled out.
Prior to dating Jack, Antgoni was in a nine-year relationship with her childhood sweetheart but they split so that she could focus on her music.
You can follow Antigoni on Instagram @antigoni, where she already boasts almost 140,000 followers.
It’s worth reminding everyone about something that Cypriots already know, and that is that the original “Love Island” is of course, Cyprus, the island of the Greek Goddess of Love, Aphrodite!
