The hair extension technician from Hertfordshire made her debut on Wednesday, 14th July after the boys won a bombshell of the opposite sex during the challenge.

And while AJ might be new to the show, she's already got her eyes on one of the guys - Faye Winter you might want to stop filing those nails and pay attention, girl!

As the series continues, here's everything you need to know about AJ - one of the Love Island 2021 contestants.

Why did AJ sign up for Love Island?

AJ is hoping Love Island will be able to turn her dating horror stories into a fairytale romance.

Speaking in an interview ahead of the show, she said: "First of all, I’ve had the worst luck with men. I feel like this is the one thing I haven’t tried. I thought why not? Let’s give it a go."

What does AJ do for work?

The 28-year-old is a hair extension technician. Outside of work, however, it looks like AJ likes to do a fair bit of travelling as she often shares very Instagram-able holiday pics in sunny destinations.

What is AJ looking for in a partner?

It's all about the "adventure" for AJ, and there's one particular guy in the villa who she thinks will be able to give her that.

"There is something about Teddy. He’s a bit of me. In terms of being adventurous and spontaneous, I think we’d get on really well. Hugo and Aaron, there is something about them so I want to get to know them a bit more," she said.

At the moment, Teddy is coupled up with Faye, so how does she feel about stepping on another girl's toes?

"I’m a respectful person in terms of morals," she explained. "I’ll definitely approach her and have a conversation beforehand. But I wouldn’t hold back. I feel like we all have a right to get to know the guys in there. I’ll definitely have a word with her first and would keep her updated on where everything is at really. I’m open and honest and I think that’s all you can really do."
