On signing up for the show, Afia says: “It just seems like a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet someone, have an amazing summer, just have so much fun and have a bit of a summer romance as well.

“I’ve always said at this age I would start taking dating seriously. Looking for someone, my Mr Right. I love going on dates but I want to be in a relationship and just call it a day! I like going on dates but I am just so done with it now, I just want the relationship, chill thing.”

Afia adds: “I think I am a big catch. I am fun and bubbly to have around. Uplifting and I really care and do lots of nice things for my other half.

“I am quite competitive, if I think that the person is worth it and I can see an end goal I wouldn’t just sit back like a wallflower, I would be quite competitive.”

“I’m looking for that real genuine spark and they just see me as me. I think the concept of the show brings back true and raw feelings,” says Ekin-Su.

On signing up for the series, she continues: “I’ve seen relationships that have worked out really well – and marriages! Dom and Jess, Camilla and Jamie – they’ve had kids as well. Dating for me has been very hard, especially in today’s world with dating apps. It’s a very false perception of somebody on these apps.”

“I’ve found that whenever I’ve tried to date somebody through these apps, it’s been really unsuccessful. I’m looking for that real genuine spark and they just see me as me. I think the concept of the show brings back true and raw feelings.

Asked why she thought she was single, Ekin-Su adds: “Partially because I’m quite picky and I’m not just looking for looks, I’m looking for brains! I’m looking for someone with intelligence, someone who can have good chats. Nothing like cockiness! I’m looking for a serious man and a serious relationship…

“I don’t care about treading on toes. Of course I am there to make friends too but realistically I’m not there to make seasonal girlfriends, I’m there to find the love of my life. I need to find the man of my dreams so if there is another girl in the way, I don’t care. I’m quite fiery and passionate so if I want something, I don’t care what gets in the way.”

 

Love Island continues Wednesday at 9PM on ITV2 and ITV Hub
