Why did Anna-May Robey want to take part in Love Island?

Explaining why she wanted to enter the Love Island villa, Anna-May said: "I want a boyfriend, I want to find someone who makes me laugh. I’ve been single for quite a while, my mother is bugging me, she's like, ‘You need to find a boyfriend.’

"I’m just excited to try something new and I think going on Love Island is a good way to meet someone."

As to what we can expect from her on the show, Anna-May has said she's "energetic" and that she's "always running around singing and screaming".

She continued: "My parents are always like, ‘Shut up!’ I work from home all day so I don’t really speak to people in person for two or three days a week, so when my father comes home, he’ll want to sit down and chill out, and I’m there chewing his ear off! I would definitely say I am a chatterbox."

Is Anna-May Robey on Instagram?

She is! Anna-May currently has over 3,400 followers on the platform, and like many of the other contestants has noted in her bio that she's "off to find love in the @loveisland villa".

What is Anna-May Robey looking for in a partner?

Anna-May hasn't said exactly what she's looking for just yet, but she has described a previous date experience that she won't be trying to emulate.

She said: "I went on a date once and I never saw him again. We went for food and shared a bottle of wine. As I was speaking to him he fell asleep! I had to clink his wine glass to wake him up."

Love Island returns to ITV2 and ITVX at 9pm on Monday 16th January. Previous seasons of Love Island are available on BritBox now - you can sign up for a 7-day free trial here.
