Danica Taylor hasn't had it easy on Love Island 2022 and after trying to find love with several islanders, she is currently single.


But that could be about to change as the arrival of four new bombshells has the potential to change the game, and it looks as though Danica is growing close to one of them.

She was last paired up with Billy, but that relationship turned sour, and he recently left the villa. With just over a week of Love Island 2022 to go, she'll need to act fast if she wants to have a shot at winning.

As the series continues and starts to glance toward the big finale, here's everything you need to know about Danica Taylor.

Why did Danica Taylor want to take part in Love Island?

Danica told the Love Island media team, "I feel like right now is the perfect time, I’ve just finished my university degree, I am single and I’ve been single for a year now so it just felt like the right time."

She added: "I am definitely going to go in there and step on a few toes and I am more than happy to go after what I want. I feel like I am quite a relatable person. I’ve come from a small town but I’ve got a lot in me. I like to be silly. I’ve got an immature side and a mature side."

Is Danica Taylor on Instagram?

Yes, Danica from Love Island does have Instagram, and her handle is @_danicataylor. At the time of writing, she has 36,900 followers, but we would expect that number to shoot up in the coming days and weeks (depending on how long she stays in the show).

What is Danica Taylor looking for in a partner?

"I need someone who can match my energy," Danica says in the official press pack of her announcement. "I am an extrovert and in my previous relationship he was very introverted so we didn’t meet on a level."

She also said, "My last relationship I was in for quite a long time, but he wasn’t meeting what I needed in a relationship." So no pressure, guys.

In her first episode, she said that her usual type is a dark-haired, light-eyed kind of guy, which certainly got a few of the contestants thinking that they could be in with a shot here. Only time will tell who she ends up with, though!
