EYNTK About New Love Islander Uma Jammeh


New girl Uma Jammeh has just entered the Love Island villa.

And she’s already looking to ruffle some feathers, as she’s set her sights on Ayo. Uh-oh.

But who is Uma? What’s her deal? And will she be as drama-inducing as we’re hoping?

Here’s everything you need to know.

Name: Uma Jammeh 

Age: 23 

Location: North London (Islington)

Occupation: VIP Host/ Model 

Why Love Island and why now?

Now is a good time for me, I’m young. I’ve been single for my whole life, it’s about time I’m not single anymore. I’m ready for a boyfriend!

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

All of my friends like to say that I like to have fun and make everyone else have fun too. I’ll bring a positive vibe and happiness!

What makes you a catch?

When people first see me, they usually think I’m going to be horrible, they are always surprised when I’m not! I’ll bring confidence, and I like to think I’m funny.

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

I’m gonna be the funniest girl in the Villa!

Why would you say you’re single? 

I feel like I’ve been so unlucky in love! It’s all been underwhelming so far. I don’t know what the reason is, I think it’s them, as it can’t be me!

How would friends/family describe you? 

Fun, vibey and caring.

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

Definitely someone who can make me laugh, who has similar values to mine, and someone who is confident and likes to have fun.

What’s your claim to fame? 

I was born in a closet in the hospital! There were no rooms left, my poor Mum!

Tell us something not many people know about you?

I really enjoy singing but I hate doing it in front of people.

If you had to pick three celebrities to be in the Villa with you as fellow Islanders who would they be and why?

Theo James, I literally love him. Him, him and him! Probably the F1 driver Lando Norris, I like his personality, he’s really cheeky and funny. And then Keith Lemon – someone who can make me laugh!

Love Island continues tonight on Virgin Media 2 at 9pm.
