With just minutes to go until the winners of Love Island 2022 are announced, it couldn't be any tenser over at the Love Island villa.


So far, third and fourth place have been announced, with Dami and Indiyah Polack chatting through their Love Island highlights with Laura Whitmore after landing in third.

It's been an exciting journey for the two contestants, who realised they had a romantic spark a few weeks into the competition and quickly went from strength to strength (except for everything that happened in Casa Amor).

Here's everything you need to know about Dami.

Why did Dami Hope want to take part in Love Island?

Speaking about why he wanted to take part in Love Island, Hope said: “This year I was kind of being more open to new things and I think actually that's why I put myself out there to get some new experiences."

He added: "Love Island is a different experience, I will be talking to different girls, it might not go well with some, might go well with others, so it’s a fun experience.

Talking about what he’s going to bring to the villa, he added: “Just myself - Dami Hope! Being me - funny and my personality. I don’t know if I will cause trouble, I’ll try not to but sometimes you don’t intentionally cause trouble - it happens!”

Is Dami on Instagram?

Like every other contestant in the Love Island villa, the answer is yes and you can find him @damihope. There are plenty of snaps out there, but none showing him hard at work as a microbiologist sadly.

What is Dami Hope looking for in a partner?

Dami didn't revealed what he was looking for in a partner before entering the villa, but he did say he's a catch.

“When I’m actually in a relationship, I think it’s a star sign thing, I’m an Aries but I’m very passionate – I always used to put that person first," he explained.

"If they had something they wanted to do or something they were passionate about, I’d make sure that even if it’s something I’m not talented at I’d get talented at it just so it helps them. I’m really good at being in a team and actually looking after each other.”
