Samantha Kenny

Age: 26
From: Liverpool
Occupation: Makeup Artist

Why Love Island and why now?

I’m ready to settle down and Love Island is an amazing opportunity to meet someone that isn’t from my area. I love a cockney boy so I’m hoping there is one in there for me.

What do you think you’ll bring to the Villa?

I think I will definitely bring some fire, I’m very opinionated and wear my heart on my sleeve. I’m really bubbly too so I’ll definitely have a laugh as well as bringing some scouse glamour.

What makes you a catch?

I think the guys will be drawn to me as I’m outgoing and very easy to get along with. I’m confident, naturally funny and glam, I think they will like my chat.

If there was one thing you’d want your new fellow Islanders to know about you, what would it be?

I’d want them to know that I’m the best auntie, my niece and nephew are my world and mean everything to me.

Why would you say you’re single?

I don’t get out enough, I work weekends and tend to not go out in Liverpool anymore. If I want a night out I go down to London as I love the boys down

How would friends/family describe you?

They’d say I’m fun, outgoing, confident and a bit unpredictable.

If you had to pick three of the most important things you look for in a partner what would they be?

I want someone career driven, funny and loyal. Loyalty is the most important thing to me.

Tell us something not many people know about you?

I used to be a morris dancer when I was a kid.

If you had to pick any celebrities to be in the Villa with you, who would they be and why?

Justin Bieber because he’s hot, I’d also like to have David Attenborough with me because he’s really clever and Olivia Attwood because I think she’s hysterical.
