How old is Love Island's Georgia?

Georgia is 28-years-old. She recently shared a funny pic on Instagram of her wearing a massive sun hat with the caption: "Anything to defy the ageing process."

Why does Georgia want to take part in Love Island?

The Essex girl admits: “I’ve been single for a really long time. Five years.”

She has been dating, though, but not always successfully. “I went to a restaurant with a boy and when I went to the bathroom, the waitress told me that he’d already been in there with two other girls, two times in that week. I was like, ‘Wow, OK!’ But also, he was obviously just trying to be efficient about things.”

What does Georgia do for work?

Georgia is a marketing executive in Essex. When she’s not at work – and we’re not in a pandemic – she travels a lot (her Instagram feed includes photos from trips to Los Angeles, Australia and Monte Carlo). Back in England, she lives with a cute little grey cat named Betty.

What is Georgia looking for in a partner?

Georgia already has her eye on a few of the Love Island men – “Hugo, he is my absolute number one and I can’t wait to get to know him. Also, I love Teddy’s charm and charisma. I also like Aaron.”

Whichever man she chooses, Georgia says of her likes: “Someone who we can have solid flirt to roast ratio, as in he can tease me but he will treat the things that I care about with respect and with the clemency that they deserve.

“I don’t want someone that is really vacuous and isn’t aware of what’s going on in the world.”
