Life in the brand new Love Island villa has been as temperamental and drama-filled as we had hoped. Love Island 2022 is underway and we have already had a recoupling and a couple of departures - ITV2 got the ball rolling early and didn't look back this year!


The Love Island 2022 line-up has already been changed up and this year, as expected, has seen the newcomers stir the pot and cause some trouble.

This year's islanders include footballer Michael Owen’s daughter Gemma, student Liam Llewellyn, microbiologist Dami Hope and waitress Indiyah Polack – who had to watch the person she was coupled up with get sent home recently.

But with her partner gone, the door is open to find somebody new so there is every chance that her loss was a blessing in disguise.

Here's everything you need to know about Indiyah Polack.

Indiyah Polack - Key facts

Age: 23

From: London

Job: Hotel waitress

Who is Indiyah coupled up with? Nobody currently, but that should change soon!

Why did Indiyah Polack want to take part in Love Island?

When asked why now was the right time to enter the villa, Indiyah explained: "I feel like I’m at a stage in my life now where I’m ready to meet new people and start dating properly."

She added that she'd been "single for some time".

"I feel like for my generation of people, it’s quite hard to date without being influenced by social media and stuff like that," she continued. "Love Island particularly is like a closed space and I think it is a great place to get to know someone one-on-one and build a real connection."

Is Indiyah on Instagram?

Yes and you can give her a follow at 1ndiyah and join the other 134k people that have flocked to her page since she became a household name in the villa.

What is Indiyah Polack looking for in a partner?

Indiyah said that she's "quite a down to earth person, so it shouldn’t be an issue to meet a lover or a friend." In terms of what she's looking for, the hotel waitress is after "a real connection".

She described her dating history as "random" explaining that everyone she'd dated was "quite different. I don’t think I have ever been out with two guys who are quite the same."


An open mind is always helpful when going into the villa, and could make it easier for Indiyah to find her type on paper – even if that type isn't exactly defined.

New episodes of Love Island 2022 air at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub every night, except Saturdays. Check out more of our Entertainment coverage or visit our TV Guide to see what's on tonight.
