What is a cochlear implant?

A cochlear implant is a small electronic device that can help those with deafness to hear the full range of speech sounds.

It is a form of hearing aid which turns sound into electronic signals, providing a sensation of hearing by stimulating the auditory nerve.

According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, the implant "consists of an external portion that sits behind the ear and a second portion that is surgically placed under the skin".

Tasha Ghouri uses a cochlear implant, having been born deaf and receiving her implant at the age of five.

Ghouri runs an Instagram account dedicated to raising awareness for the deaf community, with @taskswithtashax highlighting how deafness is "not a disability" but "a superpower".

Why did Tasha Ghouri want to take part in Love Island?

"My dating life has been a shambles," Tasha explained in a statement, before adding that Love Island was "an opportunity for me to find ‘the one'".

She's also hoping to have "a great summer at the same time".

Tasha says she's "definitely ready" for a relationship.

Is Tasha on Instagram?

Yes she is, and head over to @tashaghouri and give her a follow to see all she posts, or what her team posts considering she is currently living a social media-free life. And you will not be the only one to follow her as 173k+ people have already!

What is Tasha Ghouri looking for in a partner?

Tasha said she's looking to get to know someone she can "go on holidays and travel with".

Speaking of her own personality, Tasha said her friends and family would describe her as "wild".

"I can get very wild on a night out, I’m definitely a party animal," she said. "I love my prosecco and to have a dance – I’m always on the dance floor. I’m very loyal to my friends and family, I’ll always have their backs."

She added: "I’m the type of person to put others before me. They would definitely say I’m a nap queen – I love napping! I think they’d also say I’m inspirational because of my hearing and my cochlear implant. I inspire quite a lot of people because I’m really open about it."

Tasha is also not afraid to step on toes to find her man.

"It’s a tough one because I’m a girls’ girl but it is a dating show and I’m here to find my man," she said. "I may have to step on toes but I’ll do it in the nicest way possible."
