Leah Taylor has entered the villa and she's ready to steal some hearts, but she has an advantage: she already knows exactly what it's like to date an Islander.

The 27-year-old beauty joined this year's Love Island on Sunday (11 June), when she arrived alongside fellow bombshell, Charlotte Sumner.

Leah might only have lived among her fellow Islanders for two days, but she's already more familiar with her surroundings than most thanks not only to her ex, but also to one of her best friends, Maura Higgins.

Fans of the show will know Maura was a staple of the villa in the fifth season, and Leah has admitted Maura's 'best bits' compilation is her 'favourite thing' she's ever watched.

"She’s one of my best friends so we watched it together one night and couldn’t stop laughing, she’s hilarious," she said.

After seeing Maura strike up a relationship with Curtis Pritchard in the villa, Leah is now seeking her own connection as she described herself as a 'hopeless romantic' who 'can't wait to be in love again'.

She's looking for someone who 'wants the same things' as her; something a former Islander apparently couldn't offer.

Fans found out about Leah's former relationship with a contestant after rushing to social media to do some snooping following her arrival on the show, when she hinted at the romance.

Leah enjoyed dates with Mitchel Taylor, Tyrique Hyde and Zachariah Noble, and when asked what her ex-boyfriend looked like she described him as 'tall and mixed race'.

After scouring social media, fans uncovered pictures of Leah with 2019 contestant Danny Williams, prompting one person to comment: "This season just keeps giving I can't believe it."

Danny himself entered the villa as a bombshell contestant in 2019, and he and Leah reportedly started dating the following year. They were spotted out in public together in January 2022, and images show the pair enjoying sunny holidays and beach trips together.

It is not clear exactly when the couple called it quits, however, they no longer each other on Instagram.

Following her relationship with Danny, Leah said she knows 'exactly what [she wants] in life when it comes to love'.

"I’m ready to find it now and I’m not going to wait around. I've figured out what it is that I look for in a person, which means my bar is set really high," she said.

"I would say I honestly have so much love to give and being in love is the best thing you can ever experience. I’m ready for everything that comes with it and the hardships you have to go through in order to make that commitment and find the one."
