It's hard to believe that we're six weeks into Love Island's 2023 winter season and that the show isn't far off from crowning its season 9 winners – one of which could be Casa Amor entry Sanam Harrianan.


From stealing the heart of Kai Fagan and making it back from Casa Amor, to facing the wrath of Olivia Hawkins and preparing for tonight's Movie Night, the 24-year-old has hit a number of Love Island milestones despite being on the show just a week or so.

With Will panicking and other islanders feeling nervous as the return of Movie Night is announced in tonight's teaser, you know it's all going to kick off on ITV2 this evening – but who is Sanam?

Here's everything you need to know about the Casa Amor arrival.

What is Sanam looking for in a partner?

"I want them to know I’m not always being serious. They have to be on the same level as me," she added.

She even said that Kai was her "number one" pick out of the boys – and so her Love Island experience couldn't have worked out better!
