Who is Anna Vakili and how old is she?

Anna is a 28-year-old pharmacist from London, and claims she's been selected as an islander as she's "different to anyone who has been on the show before".

She has a masters and works as a pharmacist, proving she has brains as well as beauty.

Anna has a Middle Eastern background and has explained her family have been putting pressure on her to settle down and find a man.

Her ideal man is a tall guy with dark hair and dark eyes and she explains she isn't into cocky boys at all.

What's Anna's biggest claim to fame?

Anna explained that earlier this year she ended up on the Iranian news: "my sister and I were away in Qatar with two Iranian footballers who have a huge following.

"Suddenly my followers went up by 20,000 and I started being tagged in fan pages!"

What does she have to say about her dating life?

Anna has never used any dating apps, and says: "I've met a few of my exes through Instagram or in real life."

An embarrassing dating moment of her is when she "walked into a glass door as I was walking into the restaurant with a date. I banged my head and everyone in the restaurant looked.

"My date was walking behind me. He was laughing throughout most of the date. It was so painful and embarrassing."

Who is Anna coupled up with?

Currently, Anna isn't couple up with anyone after partner Sherif was booted out of the villa for kicking Molly-Mae in the crotch by accident and using offensive language.

Although there seemed to be a mutual understanding between herself and Anton for the next recoupling, the scotsman opted to couple up with Essex gal Elma which left Anna single and vulnerable.

However, this was probably for the best as Anton and Elma were voted as the weakest couple and Elma has to leave the villa.

This gave Anna chance to go on a date with two new male bombshells, and she clicked instantly with Manchester model Jordan.
