We've got a text! And, it says that a new islander awaits...

Thought Idris and Kieran were the last of the new islanders? Think again. Meet Alexandra! She's heading in to spice things up and potentially turn some heads! 

27-year-old Alexandra is a professional makeup artist from Hertfordshire. Let's get to know her.. 

What makes her stand out?

I’m a little bit older than some of the others in the villa. I’m always the life and soul of the party and I’m a bit of a joker. I’m just always super positive and I love life. I like to spread positivity around everybody.

What is she looking for in the villa?  

I’d love to meet someone. I’m setting my sights on Josh. He is so my type looks-wise. I feel like Dr Alex could be a good match for me. I feel like we’d have some really in depth conversations, I’m knowledgeable, he is knowledgeable. Hopefully I can bring out his personality a bit. I’d like to get to know him.

What are her best features? 

Probably my eyes are the most obvious thing guys would look at. I’m very grounded and fun loving, I take care of people and if you’ve got my heart I will always do my best for you.

Has she any bad habits? 

I’m quite loud which can get annoying. Also apparently I eat loudly.

Lets talk relationship history.. 

I’m friends with most of my exes. I’m the type of person that, I like to maintain a good relationship with people, even if things have come to an end because I did care about that person once.

Thoughts on cheating? 

I read a lot about love – books from anthropologists and speakers so my mind is frazzled with my thoughts on monogamy. I don’t really know as humans if we are meant to be monogamous. I started reading about it and about different types of love. I don’t condone cheating and I don’t agree with it but I would do everything in my power to try and understand why cheating happens.

What's the best way to her heart? 

Be a real gentleman to me and have character, I love somebody with a personality otherwise I feel like I’m carrying the relationship.

What's her biggest turn off? 

Someone who is over the top. I like someone who is just calm and natural.

Any date disasters? 

I went on one date where a guy didn’t turn up for an hour so I ordered without him, ate my food then he turned up and I left and he had to pay the bill.

Is friendship in the villa important to her? 

I’m an only child so my friends are my family. I’ve got a lot of good, close relationships with girls outside of the villa. With girls, I am protective, I do like to give advice. I’m going to have to tread on somebody’s toes at this stage. I want to be as respectful as I can, I know I won’t always please everybody but I hope I create some good friendships in the villa.

What's Alexandra's claim to fame?

I was Demi Rose’s makeup artist. We met a few years ago and I was her makeup artist for two years. I’ve got a large Instagram following from working with her. As a makeup artist, I have worked in the industry for a while. I’ve worked with music artists and I’ve dated a few.

Love Island continues on 3e at 9pm.
