Yewande Biala is one of the 12 original Love Island 2019 contestants
Love Island 2019 may have only started two weeks ago, but we already can't get enough of the latest batch of singletons.
One of the OG contestants is Yewande Biala, a scientist from Dublin. Here's everything you need to know about her.
Yewande, 23, is from Dublin, Ireland.
Yewande is a scientist, and said in her official interview: "I’m a scientist, which is a unique job. I think people may be surprised. Every time I say that I’m a scientist, people are shocked. I think there are loads of intelligent people on reality television, last year we had Dr Alex and the year before we had Camilla Thurlow in the villa."
She added: "I don’t think there is a science to finding love and if there is then I have clearly been reading the wrong books."
Speaking about the show, she added: "I don’t think I have a wandering eye, I’m very loyal. I’ve never cheated on anyone but I’ve been cheated on multiple times. I feel like I am less trusting as a result of that. I think I’ll definitely have my guard up."
Yewande is coupled up with Danny Williams, and the pair shared a steamy smooch in a recent episode.
Yewande was picked to go on a date with Danny when he first entered the villa, and in a later episode the pair kissed for the first time.
In the Beach Hut, Yewande said: Everyone's waiting for us to take it to the next level, and it's so much pressure. It's not a big deal, but now it's like a big deal
Danny and Yewande then went to sit together in the garden, and Danny told her: "You look so good, you know. Stunning."
He then said: "Last night i really wanted to kiss you"
And Yewande asked: "Why didn't you?"
He then replied: "Because i didn't want to put pressure on you, but i wanted to." He then asked if he could kiss her, to which she replied that he could, and they shared their first kiss.
