Why Love Island and why now?
I’ve been single now for over two years. I’ve watched the show before, and my friends always say I should go on it - they say I’m made for it! So let’s see if they’re right or not.

What do you think you’ll bring to the Villa?
My French accent, as well as lots of laughter.

Are you ready to find ‘the one’?
Yes. I’ve been busy for the last few years with work, and doing my Masters degree but now I’m done with the busy schedule, and ready to find love.

What’s your ‘elevator pitch’ for why someone should want to date you?
I’d simply start by speaking French, that usually gets girls interested.

Why would you say you’re single?
I’m single at the moment because I’ve been too busy for love.

How would friends/family describe you?
I think they would describe me as someone who is confident, kind and funny.

How would your ex girlfriends describe you?
The best!

Best/worst date story?
My best date was a picnic in a vineyard in France - it was beautiful with the sunset, and it was very romantic. It was something different, because going to restaurants was getting a bit boring.

The worst date I’ve ever been on was with a girl who had come from the gym. She said she had showered, but I don’t think the shower had been on for long enough. I stayed for the whole date, because that’s what a gentleman should do, but it wasn’t a pleasant experience for me.

What gives you the ‘ick’?
Clingy girls, and girls that act and talk in a childish way. I like a sophisticated girl who looks after herself.

If you had to pick three of the most important things you look for in a partner what would they be?
Looks are important but they aren’t everything, a good sense of humour and someone who is outgoing and up for an adventure is what I’m looking for.

Tell us something not many people know about you?
I have a Masters degree in communication.

This year marks series 10 of Love Island. Do you have a favourite show moment from any of the previous seasons?
I like seeing the couples who are still together today like Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae. It’s beautiful to see them still together, looking happy and with a family now too.

If you had to pick three celebrities to be in the Villa with you as fellow Islanders who would they be and why?
My first choice would be Eva Longoria - she is beautiful and I do love a ‘MILF’. I also love the Brazilian singer, Anitta, she is very much my type.

If money was no object, what would be your ideal first date?
For me a picnic is very romantic. A picnic on a private, secluded beach.
