Winter Love Island is approaching and with that, we have our first official contestant of the series.

Tanya Manhenga is a 22-year-old biomedical science student and influencer, from Liverpool and she will be taking to our screens to find love this January!

Explaining why she joined the show Tanya said, “I’m looking for a boyfriend and I think being in a Villa with lots of different people will help me work out who it is I may want.”

She also revealed what her icks are, “Guys that don’t wear socks in the house. Why are your feet flapping all around the house? Guys have huge feet too, yuck. Also, guys in the bathtub with no bubbles, such an ick, no.” Bubble baths are elite tbf.

And something people may not know about the future islander? “I have Vitiligo, which is a skin pigmentation, you may not even notice it. It’s on my lip and I have a stripe on my hair. Not many people know that but I think it’s quite cute. I don’t care about covering it up all the time, I think it’s a vibe.”

We cannot wait to see Tanya in the villa!
