Love Island 2024 is here and contestant Samantha Kenny is taking on the villa of love in her attempt to find the man of her dreams which, at the moment, is celebrity bombshell, Joey Essex.

Sam has promised to bring the drama this season and so far, she's certainly done that as she fights for her couple and her chance at love with the former TOWIE star.

Looking for a cockney boy who will sweep her off her feet, will Samantha have a smooth journey on the show? Or is heartache on the menu instead of love? It won't be long until we find out!

How old is Love Island's Samantha Kenny?

Love Island contestant Samantha Kenny is 26-years-old.

She posted two photos on her Instagram on the 28th of August, one of which was her blowing out a cake with the caption “had the best birthday.” If that date was her birthday then Samantha is Virgo.

What is Love Island's Samantha Kenny’s job?

Samantha Kenny is a make-up artist by trade and posts a lot of her work on her Instagram.

She seems to specialise in soft glam looks and has found a lot of success with her business, posting on her Instagram about how her books have filled up.

We can imagine her talent for makeup will come in handy looking good in the villa, and it’ll be interesting to see in the future if Samantha manages to snag any big beauty brand partnerships after the season is over.

Where is Love Island's Samantha Kenny from?

Samantha Kenny is from Liverpool and describes herself as "very opinionated" and that she wears her "heart on her sleeve".

Samantha has high hopes of finding love in the villa and sees Love Island as "an amazing opportunity to meet someone that isn’t from my area."

But she’s got her eyes peeled for a certain type of man in Spain, saying: "I love a cockney boy so I’m hoping there is one in there for me.”

Busy with work on the weekends, Samantha no longer frequents Liverpool for a night out, but rather prefers going south.

"If I want a night out I go down to London as I love the boys down south. Tall, dark and cockney is my type."
