Why Love Island and why now?
I’m excited to have a fun summer, it’s going to be good vibes all summer.

What do you think you’ll bring to the Villa?
Good energy and entertainment, I’m a girl’s girl but I do like to get what I want when it comes to boys.

What’s your ‘elevator pitch’ for why someone should want to date you?
I'm the whole package, I know what I want in life and I’ve got a big heart.

If there was one thing you’d want your new fellow Islanders to know about you what would it be?
I’d let the boys know that I’m wifey material so don’t play with me!

Why would you say you’re single?
There is something going on with men these days, they don't know a real one when they’ve got one. I’d say it’s no fault of my own but by choice because I’d never settle for less, you have to keep your standards high.

How would friends/family describe you?
My family would say that I’m bubbly, kind, feisty. Friends would say that I’ve got good energy and the one to bring the vibes.

What’s your best or worst date story?
My ex took me to Paris for my birthday, we went up the Eiffel tower and then went for dinner at a really nice restaurant. The whole date was just a really unforgettable experience.

What gives you the ‘ick’?
Guys that sit on Instagram and like every girl's pictures is an ick for me, if I can see he’s been liking the girls posts on my explore page, it’s a no. I also get the ick if a guy can’t dress and doesn’t smell good.

Do you fall in love quickly?
Yes, I have a really big heart.

If you had to pick three of the most important things you look for in a partner what would they be?
They have to be able to make me laugh and be caring, I like a masculine man too.

Do you have a claim to fame?
I’ve been in a Headie One and Burna Burna Boy music video and I was once an extra in World War Z. I was 12 years old when I filmed it and got to meet Brad Pitt which was cool.

Tell us something not many people know about you?
I’m a really good cook, you name it, I can chef it up! I’d say the Ella Thomas speciality would be a coconut curry.

This year marks series 10 of Love Island. Do you have a favourite show moment from any of the previous seasons?
It has to be when Anna Vakili caught Jordan moving to India and gave him a dressing down!

If you had to pick three celebrities to be in the Villa with you as fellow Islanders who would they be and why?
Michael B Jordan because he’s my celebrity crush, I’d also pick Rihanna and Beyonce because they are queens and who wouldn’t want to meet them?!

If money was no object, what would be your ideal first date?
We’d take a private jet to the Maldives and have a candlelit dinner on the beach.


This summer, Love Island is back in Mallorca and set to return for its tenth sizzling series on Monday 5th June at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX as a host of brand new singletons seek to find love.
