With the newest season of Summer (Summer is Here SALE)r love Island back on our screens in a matter of days (it has a start date of June 5, FYI), ITV bosses have finally revealed the line-up of this year’s contestants, all looking for love .
Among them is London gal Jess Harding on the hunt for ‘Mr Right’, as she describes him.
The glamorous islander ‘looks pretty and her Bikini (Bikini Super sale here) is cute’ according to some of the social media comments. ‘Giving Bebe Rexha idk,’ another reckoned.
A few eagle-eyed fans of the reality show pointed out that Jess has a similar look to former islander Olivia Hawkins, with some saying: ‘Olivia thought she could dye her hair blonde and no one would notice.’
‘She’s going to be trouble, I can tell,’ wrote another, alongside a skull emoji.
Here’s everything we know about Jess so far:
Hold old is Jess Harding?
Hailing from London, Jess is 22 years old. Taking part in a Q&A before entering the villa, Jess was asked what’s your elevator pitch for someone who’d want to date you? She answered simply, saying she ‘love s love ’ and has personality in (heart-shaped) spades.
‘Firstly I think I’ve got quite a big personality and I’ve got a heart of gold,’ she said. ‘I can stand up for myself if I need to. I’m honest, and I love , love . I’m also a really good girlfriend.’
What is Jess Harding’s job?
The glamour puss knows all about looking good as she currently works as an aesthetics practitioner. It’s not all down to looks though as she says the reason she’s single is that, currently, all boys give her the ‘ick’. She’s hoping Cupid’s arrow will strike in the villa without any icks in sight.
And speaking of the ‘ick’, what makes her ick radar go into overdrive? ‘Lunch boxes’ is an answer we weren’t expecting!
‘When a guy stunts for money, that’s an ick,’ Jess added. ‘Showing off all their designer clothes because most of the time they’re probably fake anyway! Another one is when a boy runs for the train and the train goes without him. Lunch Boxes also – just go to Tesco and get a meal deal!’
Who doesn’t love a good meal deal?
The 10th series of the annual hit dating show commences on Monday June 5 at 9pm.
As the show has increased in popularity, ITV has put more practices in place to protect islanders as well as ensure they have a positive experience.
After an ‘initial trial period’ tested during the Winter (Winter Sale is here) series in South Africa earlier this year, the contestants will formally be asked to pause all their social media accounts during the series.
love Island #love Islandreturns on Monday June 5 at 9pm on ITV2.
