*Warning - Contains spoilers for Love Island 2024.*


Mimii hasn't had the easiest time in the Love Island villa, with Ayo's antics in Casa Amor leaving her single in the villa – but this could prove to be a blessing in disguise for the 24-year-old.

In tonight's episode (8th July), Mimii will be taken on a date with bombshells Reuben and Josh! Mimii, Jessy and Uma all take a seat with Reuben and Josh over some candlelit tapas.

As one boy reveals he's bilingual and whips out his best Spanish ordering skills, the other makes a beeline for Mimii and says: "I feel like what you bring is exactly what I'm looking for and it's been kind of hard for me to see what’s been going on with your situation because I know you deserve better than that."

Things are looking up!!

Who is Mimii Ngulube?

Mimii Ngulube is a 24-year-old mental health nurse from Portsmouth, and the pool of men there just aren't giving, hence her decision to apply for Love Island!

"I've tried dating, speaking to people on social media, and it just hasn't been successful," she said in a recent Q&A. "Applying was a spontaneous thing, I didn't expect to get here!"

Mimii is a girls' girl through and through, and is planning to be a good friend to those in the villa, in addition to finding the man of her dreams.

As for what else she'll be bringing into the villa, Mimii added: "[I'll be] bringing honesty, as well – I'm good at picking up on people's personality traits and side-eyeing those who might be a liar."

How old is Mimii Ngulube?

Mimii is 24 years old, finding herself among some of the youngest islanders in this year's show.

Is Mimii on Instagram?

Yes! You can follow Mimii on Instagram @mimiitafara. The social media ban has returned once more, meaning the islanders will be leaving their social media accounts dormant for the duration of their time in the villa.

Why did Mimii sign up for Love Island summer 2024?

Mimii's application for Love Island was a "spontaneous" decision, with the islander admitting she didn't "expect" to make it on the show!

What does Mimii look for in a partner?

The three most important things Mimii looks for in a partner is honesty, someone who knows what they want and being a "provider".

The 24-year-old hasn't met her match just yet, but could Love Island change that?
