*Warning - Contains spoilers for Love Island 2024.*


It has only been two weeks since Love Island returned for its 11th season, and there has been more drama than anyone could've imagined.

From love triangles to fresh formats and now even love squares - the islanders have been up to all sorts! One islander who has found herself wrapped up in drama is Harriett Blackmore.

While many may roll their eyes at drama, some people welcome it - and former islander Georgia Steel exclusively told RadioTimes.com that it's this that keeps viewers coming back for more.

Georgia explained: "I think Harriett is causing a lot of drama, and I know she's obviously very controversial - but you've got to think from an entertainment point of view, the people that are in that drama, we have to thank them because they're the people that have given us the entertainment."
Harriett is currently in a couple with Ronnie Vint, but things appear to have soured in a first look at tonight's episode (17th June).

Speaking to Sean, Harriett says: "I think, for me, I just want to know, it's the anticipating and the waiting around that's doing me in a bit. It says more about him than it does me."

While there are just a few hours to go before the fallout of Ronnie's Casa Amor antics are laid bare, here's everything you need to know about Love Island 2024 contestant Harriett Blackmore.
