Uma explains decision to leave Love Island with Wil

NAME: Mimii Ngulube

AGE: 24

FROM: Portsmouth

OCCUPATION: Mental Health Nurse

WHY LOVE ISLAND? The pool in Portsmouth is not giving. I’ve tried dating and speaking to people on social media and it just hasn’t been successful. Applying was a spontaneous thing, I didn’t expect to get here! 

WHAT WILL YOU BRING TO THE VILLA? My girls are my rocks and I’m theirs, so I’ll be a good friend as well as going in there to find a man. I like dressing up, so I’ll bring style, and I’d like to think I’m quite funny so I’ll make people laugh. Bringing honesty as well – I’m good at picking up on people’s personality traits and side-eyeing those who might be liars.

FROM: Hertford

OCCUPATION: Sweets Salesman

WHY LOVE ISLAND? I’ve always been one for relationships, and when you have found someone you want to be with it’s the best feeling. Now is the perfect time, the one thing that is missing is my soulmate. 

HOW WOULD FRIENDS/FAMILY DESCRIBE YOU? Very loving, caring and thoughtful. I’m the kind of guy that, if you broke down on the motorway and needed your tyre changed, I’d be there at any time of night.

NAME: Ayo Odukoya

AGE: 25

FROM: Canning Town


WHAT WILL YOU BRING TO THE VILLA? I think I’d bring excitement and joy. I think people would have someone to come to and talk to and feel comfortable being around or to have a laugh with. I think I’m somebody everyone would take to.

WHY SHOULD SOMEBODY DATE YOU? I feel like the way I carry myself is very respectful and I think people take to that and once you show who you are to somebody you get it back tenfold. The way I am gives off a good enough energy for people to feel comfortable around me.

NAME:  Nicole Samuel

AGE: 24

FROM: Aberdare, Wales

OCCUPATION: Accounts Manager

WHY ARE YOU SINGLE? I’ve been enjoying single life and the attention of different boys, it’s fun. I’ve enjoyed being able to go on holiday with the girls and not having to worry about someone back home. All the girls are there texting in their room and I’m out till 4 in the morning living my best life.

WHAT IS SOMETHING NOT MANY PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT YOU? I became a world champion dancer in 2011, not many people know that. I was a professional street dancer.

NAME: Jess White

AGE: 25

FROM: Stockport

OCCUPATION: Retail Manager

WHY ARE YOU SINGLE? I don’t underestimate the fact that I’m hard work. I know what I want, and I’m not easily pleased. When you’re a loud, outgoing woman, sometimes it can intimidate men – men don’t always want that.

WHAT’S YOUR TYPE ON PAPER? I love a set of white Turkey teeth but a good set of Turkey teeth. I would say, personality traits: you have to be family orientated. You have to be tall, you can’t be shorter than me, I can’t be having to question whether I can wear heels around you and what height of heels I can wear. If you’re vertically challenged, it’s not for me.

NAME: Ciaran Davies

AGE: 21

FROM: Pencoed, South Wales


WHAT’S YOUR TYPE ON PAPER? Obviously looks but humour is a big thing for me, I’m a bit of a wind up so I want a girl who can give it back. Loyalty is another one for me: I think that’s the most important thing to look for in a relationship.

WHAT IS SOMETHING NOT MANY PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT YOU? When I was in Malia on a boys holiday I pretended to be Liam Reardon from series 7 to get into a club because they wouldn’t let us in. It worked and we ended up getting a private booth and free drinks all night.

AGE: 23

FROM: Islington, North London

OCCUPATION: VIP host / model

WHY ARE YOU SINGLE? I feel like I’ve been so unlucky in love! It’s all been underwhelming so far. I don’t know what the reason is, I think it’s them, as it can’t be me!

CLAIM TO FAME? I was born in a closet in the hospital! There were no rooms left, my poor mum!

NAME: Grace Jackson

AGE: 25

FROM: Manchester

OCCUPATION: Model and social media marketing coordinator 

WHY ARE YOU SINGLE? No guys have good communication and it’s painful. I like someone who doesn’t take themselves and life too seriously. My lifestyle can put guys off a little bit, I like to go out and go abroad a lot. They can’t keep up with my lifestyle. It’s the life that I want, and it helps with my business.

FROM: Whitley Bay, Tyne And Wear

OCCUPATION: Quantity surveyor

WHY DID YOU WANT TO GO ON LOVE ISLAND? I wanted to be single for the last year because I’ve been in two serious relationships from the age of 18 but, now I feel like it’s time to put myself back out there. I want to feel that love again

NAME: Matilda Draper

AGE: 24

FROM: Beckenham

OCCUPATION: Recruitmant Consultant

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU’LL BRING? I want to bring sunshine to the Villa. I’m lighthearted and don’t take myself too seriously. If things get too serious in the Villa I’m going to throw in a little joke or a ‘would you rather’.

NAME: Konnor Ewudzi

AGE: 28

WHY LOVE ISLAND AND WHY NOW? I am ready to find somebody. I’ve been in a couple of relationships and now feels like the right time as I have learnt from past relationships. I’ll be able to pick out the red flags now.

NAME: Jessy Potts

AGE: 25

FROM: Leicester

OCCUPATION: Brand Partnerships Associate

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU WILL BRING TO THE VILLA?  I’m fun, I like to get involved, so I’d like to think I will get stuck in as soon as I arrive. I also have a very sarcastic sense of humour, so I’ll make everyone laugh, but I’m a Sagittarius, so I also have a fiery side and I’m not afraid to say what I think or stand my ground. I’m not very good at taking ‘no’ for an answer.

OCCUPATION: Fashion Content Creator

WHO DO YOU HAVE YOUR EYE ON IN THE VILLA?  I had a brief thing with Joey a few years ago. We’ve been friends for years and I would be open to reconnecting with Joey. We get on really well and we have a lot of mutual friends. I am also friends with Grace in Manchester, so it’s a little bit awkward.

WHAT KIND OF ISLANDER ARE YOU GOING TO BE? I am ready to bring my fashion and looks into the Villa. I’m a really good communicator and always ready to give good advice to help someone.

WHAT KIND OF ISLANDER ARE YOU GOING TO BE? I’ll be an honest Islander and I’m never afraid to be myself. I always take people’s opinions on board but I’m not a yes man – I’m going in there to find love and prepared to step on toes to do so.

WHO DO YOU HAVE YOUR EYE ON IN THE VILLA?  I have my eyes on Ayo, despite his connection with Mimii. I fancy Ayo so much. Wil also seems like a catch and someone I want to explore a connection with.

WHO DO YOU HAVE YOUR EYE ON IN THE VILLA? The three that have really caught my eye are Uma, Grace and Matilda. They each have their own qualities.
