New bombshell Charlotte reveals her age

Why is everyone talking about Love Island Charlotte's age?

At 30 years old, Charlotte is this year's oldest contestant with Mitchel Taylor and Mehdi Edno being the next oldest members of the house at 26.

While many fans are pleased to see some older Love Island stars, others are wondering who they will choose to date.

One Instagram fan praised the producers and said: "I love that they are older. Let's see if that means anything."

Another added: "How the hell are 30 year old women looking that damn good."

Raising concern, someone said: "She’s still young as a whole but I’m just saying, the boys are not up to her maturity."

Why did Charlotte sign up for Love Island summer 2023?

Having applied for the show, Charlotte admitted it was her friends and family who encouraged her to fill out the application form.

"Friends and family kept telling me to apply for Love Island, so I thought, why not? The age I’m at and the experiences I’ve had, I feel ready to meet my Mr Right," she said.

However, it may not be easy for Charlotte to find love as she confessed she has a lengthy list of requirements and get the 'ick' quite easy.

She wants someone she is "sexually attracted to" but is also "kind-hearted and laid back".
