Who has Love Island's Catherine Agbaje coupled up with?

Catherine has certainly had her fair share of Love Island couples. At the beginning, she was coupled up with Andre Furtado after the couple voted for them to be together.

Shortly after, bombshell Zachariah Noble was dropped in and he chose Cathy as the woman for him but it wasn't long before he turned his attention to Molly Marsh and she returned to Andre.

A public vote saw Andre exit the villa but new bombshell Scott Van Der Sluis came and swept her off her feet. However, Casa Amor soon put an end to their perfect romance as she brought back Elom.

Where is Love Island's Cathy Agbaje from?

Her Irish accent is from her time living in her home town of Dublin and Cathy has confessed partners have found it just as attractive as her.

Talking in her promotion video for Love Island, she told us: "I just have to give people the eyes, open my mouth, say a few words and they're like, 'Oh my God, where are you from?' And then yeah, it's done. I've had people say to me, 'Just send voice notes of you speaking.' I'm like, 'okay'!"
