She said her icks are: "When a guy has a yoghurt and takes the lid off and licks it. Another one is when guys try to shout and they don’t have a shouting voice. I’m only little but I can shout the house down if I need to."

Who is Leah Taylor coupled up with?

Currently, Leah is getting to know Montel McKenzie who proved just how serious he is about her in a recent episode.

The couple, who were growing stronger by the day, were faced with Casa Amor and while they both came back for one another, Montel's behaviour raised question marks for Leah after she found out he kissed Tink.

In a bid to make it up to her, he made a formal apology by standing on the villa terrace in front of everyone which eventually won her over.

Leah is no stranger to dating a man of Love Island status as she was previously in a relationship with Danny Williams.

The couple dated in 2020 after he appeared on the show in 2019. Not much is known about their relationship but it's reported they were together for around two years.

Who are Leah Taylor's famous circle of friends?

Proving her Love Island connections are strong, Leah is best friends with none other than Maura Higgins.

Talking about her bestie, she said: "My favourite thing I’ve ever watched is Maura’s best bits. She’s one of my best friends so we watched it together one night and couldn’t stop laughing, she’s hilarious.”

There are also reports that Leah and Molly Marsh were previously friends before being ruined in the Love Island villa.
