Love Island & Social Media

It’s that time of year again when your social media feed will be taken over for 8 weeks by Love Island!

But who are this year’s contestants?

While names, ages, occupations and airbrushed photoshoots are all well and good, checking them out on Instagram is the best way to get an unfiltered less filtered look at the cast of 2022!

As we’ve got you covered on all things social media, here are all of the handles you need to know.

And of course we have to kick it off with one of our own, so make sure and show some love to Dami!

Dami Hope
Instagram handle: @damihope
Age: 26
From: Dublin
Occupation: Senior Microbiologist

Dami says, “This year I was kind of being more open to new things and I think actually that’s why I put myself out there to get some new experiences. Love Island is a different experience, I will be talking to different girls, it might not go well with some, might go well with others, so it’s a fun experience.”

Amber Beckford
Instagram handle: @amberbeckford
Age: 24
From: London
Occupation: Nanny

Amber says, “I think it just feels like the right time. This year it definitely feels like it’s two feet in. I feel like now I’m most definitely ready, and wanting to look for a boyfriend.”

Luca Bish
Instagram handle: @lucabish
Age: 23
From: Brighton
Occupation: Fishmonger

Luca says, “When you actually look back at Love Island, you can see how many couples it’s genuinely made. I don’t know how many kids Love Island has made but there are a few aren’t there?”

Ikenna Ekwonna
Instagram handle: @ikenna._
Age: 23
From: Nottingham
Occupation: Pharmaceutical Sales

Ikenna says, “I’ve only been in one past relationship but now I think I’m at the age where I could find someone. Hopefully, I’m going to bring spontaneity and excitement. I’m not really shy to speak to people and I don’t really care too much about what people think.”

Andrew Le Page
Instagram handle: @andrewlepage
Age: 27
From: Guernsey
Occupation: Real Estate Agent

Andrew says, “Because I’m actually single for once, so I thought why not? This is the best time to give it a go. When I’m with someone I’m very loyal, I’m a good boyfriend as when I’m with someone I’m all for them.”

Gemma Owen
Instagram handle: @gemowen_1
Age: 19
From: Chester
Occupation: International Dressage Rider and Business Owner

Gemma says, “I am open to finding love, I’m wanting to have a really fun summer. I was seeing someone and then that didn’t work out so I thought, ‘Why not?’

“I would say I’m fun, flirty and fiery. I think I’m good at giving advice, I’m a good person to talk to, I’m very honest. If I want the same guy, I’d do it but in a nice respectful way.”

Davide Sanclimenti
Instagram handle: @davidesancli
Age: 27
From: Rome, Italy
Occupation: Business Owner

Davide says, “I think Love Island is going to be so much fun. I’m going to be the Italian stallion in the villa! With my Italian charm, I can also be a very romantic guy. I’m good looking and I’ve realised since I first arrived in Manchester, a lot of English girls actually love me.

“They love to be around me and I love to be around them. It’s going to be fun, I’m looking forward to it. I want to find my soulmate, find my person so I can actually build something in the future, grow with them, be a family.”

Tasha Ghouri
Instagram handle: @tashaghouri
Age: 23
From: Thirsk
Occupation: Model & Dancer

Tasha says, “My dating life has been a shambles. This is an opportunity for me to find ‘the one’ and have a great summer at the same time. I’m definitely ready for a relationship. I’m 23 now so I’m ready to get to know someone, go on holidays and travel with them.”

Indiyah Polack
Instagram handle: @1ndiyah
Age: 23
From: London
Occupation: Hotel Waitress

Indiyah says,”I feel like I’m at a stage in my life now where I’m ready to meet new people and start dating properly. I have been single for some time and I feel like for my generation of people, it’s quite hard to date without being influenced by social media and stuff like that.”

Liam Llewellyn
Instagram handle: @liamllew_
Age: 22
From: Newport, South Wales
Occupation: Masters Student (Strength & Conditioning)

Liam says,”I think 22 is a really nice age to meet someone, you’ve got your years ahead of you so you have time to experience stuff and grow together. I think Love Island is a great opportunity to meet someone, you’re in with a load of different types, so you can get to grips with what you really like about people.”

Paige Thorne
Instagram handle: @paigethornex
Age: 24
From: Swansea
Occupation: Paramedic

Paige says, “In Swansea there is just no-one I can find. I’ve tried and there’s just nobody there anymore.”

“Love Island just brings everyone together for me, I haven’t got to go out and I haven’t got to swipe. So, hopefully they can just come to me now!”
