Anna Vakili

Love Island's Yewande Biala has opened up about what life is like when you're black and in the media.

The 23-year-old Irish scientist says being black means "you have to be 10 times better than everyone else", she told 1Xtra Talks.

Yewande was one of the 2019 cast originals, but left the show after Danny chose Arabella over her in a brutal dumping.

She says: "When I got into this I realised being black is hard, but being black and in the media is harder.

"You have to stand out and you have to do more and it can get quite frustrating," she adds.

"You feel like you're not doing enough, but just keep pushing to keep doing what you're doing and someone will see how amazing you are."

The reality star also claims that finding love in the villa was harder because of the colour of her skin.

Yewande's best friends were candidates Amber Gill, who is mixed race and Anna Vakili, who's Iranian, and she says "we all struggled".

"We didn't find anyone who liked us. It was always someone coming in and saying 'my type is blonde and petite'. We'd just look at each other and say 'they're obviously not here for us'."

Yewande also spoke about the pressure of social media outside of the villa, and how she copes with it.

She says "the majority of people were super supportive" in public platform comments, but that she did receive some hurtful direct messages.

"When I came back from Mallorca I got such a tan. I was so dark but I loved it.

"And people would come to me like, 'Oh you're too dark, like why are you so dark? Why are you so black, you're too skinny'. It was just stupid."

Yewande was also quizzed on her feelings about Danny Williams and Arabella Chi.

Model Arabella Chi is now dating Wes Nelson from the 2018 series, while Danny is dating Jourdan Riane after falling for her during the Casa Amor segment only days after Arabella was dumped.

The scientist says numerous articles appeared online about her which portrayed a tired stereotype used against black women following her dumping.

"I tried not to read any articles about myself because I didn't want to get upset. I think they were trying to label me as the angry black woman, which was kind of insane.

"Not once in the villa did I ever raise my voice or feel like I acted in that way, even considering the circumstances I was in."

AJ Pritchard has jumped to his brother's defence after last night's explosive episode of Love Island, where Anna Vakili branded Curtis Pritchard a 'narcissist'.

The pharmacist blasted fellow islander Curtis after he told her boyfriend Jordan Hames to pull India Reynolds aside to confess his feelings for her behind Anna's back.

Professional dancer Curtis encouraged Jordan to act on his emotions, even though Hames had only asked Anna to be his girlfriend two days previously.

Of course, the entire WORLD wondered what on earth Curtis was thinking when he gave Jordan that appalling advice.

Irish charmer Greg won the episode by asking him; "What was your thought process behind that?" The legend jumped out.

Anna was understandably raging at Curtis after she discovered what he'd done.

Maura was none too pleased with him when he couldn't tell her how he would act if he landed in the same situation as Jordan.

Curtis even told Maura that Jordan was BRAVE to confess his feelings to India. Why does anyone go to him for advice, honestly? His behaviour with Amy alone should have sent up red flares.

28-year-old Anna fumed at Curtis for his advice to Jordan last night, saying: "I just don't know if you are a good person really, because good people don't move like that.

"You move like you're such a good person and you're not. A good person would never say to anybody to do that to their other half," she continued.

"Do you not care about me a little bit? I have been living with you for the past two months, you obviously don't care about me. You're a narcissist, that's my opinion of you." YES BISH.

After hearing Anna’s comments, Curtis’ younger bother, Strictly Come Dancing star AJ Pritchard took to Twitter to leap to his defence.

The 24-year-old seemed to suggest that Anna did not truly understand the meaning of the word. He wrote: “Does Anna know the definition of narcissistic?

"Narcissist: Having or showing an excessive interest in or admiration of oneself and one's physical appearance. #loveisland @loveisland.” Shadier than a palm tree.

Maura Higgins also quizzed Curtis on the advice he gave out. saying; “So in this situation, if I was your girlfriend, you would do the same thing?”

"I don’t know what I’d do in that situation,” Curtis replied. “Oh wow,” Maura said, as she gets up to walk away from him, adding: “That’s great, that’s great”. The man needs to find the door.

What do you think, are you team Pritchard Bros or Team Anna/The Rest of the World?

Remember when Michael and Yewande were coupled up when Love Island first began, albeit reluctantly? And they became pally and supportive of one another? Before the devil took Michael's soul?

Well, the former duo live streamed their hilarious reactions to the drama between Jordan and Anna, which absolutely exploded in the villa over the last two nights.

Love Island viewers were left in total shock as Jordan decided to pull India for a chat to confess his feelings for her, without telling Anna first. The same Anna who happens to be his girlfriend…

The cheeky model was exposed when Curtis told his plan to Maura, who went straight to Anna to warn her of what was going on behind her back.

Curtis didn't come out of the whole debacle looking squeaky clean, seeing as he had advised Jordan to pull India aside first instead of talking to Anna.

Probably because he knew India would turn Jordan down and then he'd 'settle' for Anna, crawling back to his poor girlfriend. He tried to gaslight Anna completely, who was having none of it.

Everyone was shooketh by Jordan's dramatic character change, which also occurred with Danny Williams and villa villain Michael Griffiths. The spirit of the fuckboy lives on, it seems.

The girls charged in behind Anna, with Jordan stuck (rightfully) on his own… except for Curtis Pritchard. Both Jordan and Anna as well as Harley and Chris were dumped from the island last night.

Michael Griffiths and Yewande Biala were live-streaming their responses to the drama unfolding, and it was entertaining as f*ck:

Both former Islanders were left in complete disbelief at Jordan's appalling behaviour, with Michael saying; "Everyone thought I f**ked up but… oooh." We still think you f**ked up, Michael. For the record.

Yewande took a sly dig at the Liverpudlian firefighter, for treating Amber in a terrible manner, explaining that boys simply can't keep it in their trousers when new women enter the villa.

They claim to be happy with their partner, but then constantly seek an upgrade and assume they can do better;

Protect Yewande at all costs, as the fans say. After Anna was voted out, she said she'd experienced "lots of ups-and-downs". 

"Obviously, the Jordan thing was one of my lowest moments," she continued. On the subject of her feelings about Jordan, she said:

"I'm so disappointed in him and I'm hurt by him. I'm shocked. I don't have anger towards him, if anything I feel sorry for him."

The Islanders are in for major shock tonight, as two couples are dumped from the villa just days before the finale.

A source has confirmed to the Mirror Online that two couples will be kicked out of the house this evening following the public vote.

The news comes after Anna Vakili and Jordan Hames' relationship had a complete meltdown last night which escalated into a full villa row.

Jordan stupidly decided to pull India Reynolds aside for a chat to let her know that his head has been turned by her, and that he wanted to pursue something romantically.

Oh, despite the fact that he has a GIRLFRIEND who was sitting metres away from them. Jordan only just asked Anna to be his "chick", which makes it even worse.

India insisted that her love remains for Ovie, after Jordan told her; "Over the past couple of days I've found myself gravitating towards you.

"I feel, like, over the past couple of days I've found myself gravitating towards you and looking forward to bumping into you in the kitchen, washing up and stuff."

Despite his dashing confession (LOL), India wasn't having any of it; "Obviously I talk to Ovie and I talk to some of the other girls. But other than that, you're my mate," she replied.

He repeated the word: "Mate?" and viewers were CACKLING. The rest of the villa discovered what was going on after Curtis dropped the bomb on Maura, who was understandably fuming and told Anna immediately.

Anna furiously branded him a "game player" as Amber leaped in to support her mate. The girls had Anna's back, and Jordan has been exposed as the f*ckboy he always was.

As Anna said; "No wonder you've only had one relationship when you've f*cked over 100 girls." Savage, but deserved. We're off to join a convent, as men have disappointed us yet again.

The Love Island villa is set to explode tonight when Jordan Hames brazenly cracks on with India Reynolds, despite making Anna Vakili his girlfriend only days ago.

And just like that, a new villa villain was born. Michael must have transported his gaslighting spirit straight into Jordan as he walked out the door, and the devil's work continues. Fuckboys have power.

Anna Vakili is concerned that her boyfriend hasn't been spending any time with her, and her instincts end up being totally true.

What does Jordan do? Blame her for the fun not being in their relationship anymore. Note, blaming the other person is an EXACT sign of *gaslighting*. 

Jordan wastes zero time in telling India about his newfound attraction to her, and pulls her for a private talk before Anna realises what's being going on and confronts him.

Curtis Pritchard immediately told Maura Higgins about Jordan's confession to him about India, and Maura warns Anna that cheating is about to commence. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Jordan Hames (@jxrdanhames) on

The drama begins the night when Jordan tells Curtis about his doubts;

"At the time I asked her to be my girlfriend, it felt normal and natural and it was the right thing to do. But I feel like I may have rushed into it." Since they've been in the bottom three, he's probably looking to escape.

"I feel like over the past couple of days I’ve had a few good conversations with India. I actually get on with her really well. I’m finding myself looking forward to bumping into her in the villa and having a conversation with her."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by India Reynolds (@lovefromreyn) on

Despite saying that himself and Anna are having no problems, he then claims she can be "hot-headed". Curtis suggests that India could be the catalyst to Jordan realising Anna isn't the perfect girl.

Jordan admits: “Since India has come into the villa, we get on really well. Obviously, she’s a good-looking girl. It’s definitely something I’m going to process in my head and decide what to do in due course.”

Jordan reflects on his decision, overnight before telling Curtis: "I think I’ve confirmed the location of my head…India."

He takes India for a chat on the sun deck, but Anna interrupts them to call him out on his bullsh*t.

Curtis says to Maura: “I’ve been speaking with Jordan. Basically, he is a little bit confused. He has feelings for India.” Maura cries: “Sorry, what? Is he going to do that before talking to Anna? I don’t believe this.”

Maura heads over to Anna and reveals: “He’s cracking on with India. He likes India. Curtis told me. He’s pulled her for a chat right now.”

Oh, did we mention that Jordan calls his girlfriend 'embarassing' for airing her fears about their lack of time together? We hope she drags Jordan by the ear and throws him in the pool…Nasty piece of sh*t.

We're thoroughly enjoying this series of Love Island, but now it's time for some seriously mathematical analysis. Namely, about the ridiculous amounts of cash they're set to earn when they emerge from the villa.

We all know that the ITV2 reality show has produced a well of influencers who sell sponsored content for an array of brands, but how much exactly would they earn per Instagram post? What if they don't even have Instagram? 

Apparently, influencers with 30,000-500,000 followers can pocket over

Influencers with 30,000 – 50,000 followers can anything up to €450 per post on Instagram according to a new study from digital marketing experts, while those with over 500,000 followers could be pocketing around €1,855.96.

Yeesh, that's serious dough. New data from Rise at Seven states that social media influencers are paid on average €0.0037 for every follower they have per post.

Considering the huge amount of sponsorship deals the Islanders attract once they're on the outside and how many followers they have (between 150,000 and three million currently), that's a huge amount of money.

Let's break it down by Islander to get some answers:

Tonight's Love Island looks set to be one of the most explosive episodes yet, with Limerick lad Greg O'Shea requesting a date with Amber, and Chris and Ovie heading on dates with the two new girls of the villa.

India Reynolds and Harley Brash are the newbies who have their sights set on Ovie and Chris, but will other eyes wander towards them?

The Hideaway also opens it's doors for Anna Vakili and Jordan Hames tonight for the steamiest visit yet (though there have only been three).

Jordan blindfolds Anna and performs a striptease for her, as things get heated in the hot tub and bedroom.

The pair are chosen after Molly-Mae receives a text reading; 

“Islanders. The Hideaway is open tonight, please choose a lucky couple to spend the night alone. #getaroom #notsosilentnight”.

The contestants decide that it's time for Jordanna to get some time alone following their brief Casa Amor split.

“It was everything in one. It was romantic. It was funny. It was sexy. I wouldn’t mind having every night in the Hideaway!” Will they reveal more deets? Probably not, let's be honest.

Anyone who tuned in to Love Island last night may have been left Googling a few things, mainly the insult Amber directed at Michael Griffiths and Joanna Chimonides, his new couple partner.

Standing around the fire-pit after the savage decision to dump her by Michael, Amber told the girls: "I’ll be fine. She’s a dead ting so what am I supposed be like, upset?"

Her fans were losing it over the brutal put-down, but most of us hadn't a clue what she was talking about and brushed it off as Geordie slang.

The 21-year-old was called 'childish' multiple times by Michael in an episode that left viewers wanting to throw something at the firefighter, who had bitched about Amber the entire time she was gone.

Image: Urban Dictionary

We resorted to our trusty Urban Dictionary for a defintion of a 'dead ting', and discovered it has two meanings, one being much more polite than the other.

The top meaning is basically a person who bores you to tears; "A boring c*nt and extremely dull". Ouch, but the other one is basically insulting a person's looks. Which is arguably far worse.

Either way, the reaction to her comment was a mixture of rage and humour, and pretty soon the phrase was even trending on Twitter.

Amber stans were out here supporting their number one girl from the beginning: 

Many fans pointed out that Joanna has just essentially taken Amber's former partner, even though Michael is most definitely the bad guy in the situation. The Amber Hive was buzzin':

Audiences think Jourdan is shit-stirring behind the original girls' back, having noticed her smirk when Amy returned to Curtis clueless about his betrayal;

Amber must have been understandably fuming at the 28-year-old firefighter, who had never said anything negative to her until she was gone to Casa Amor.

Amber is repeatedly called 'immature' and 'childish' by Michael and when she asked him for examples of when he was "biting his tongue" he couldn't cough up ANY.

People also pointed out that Amber was initially calling Michael a dead ting, which is totally fair;

Others thought the comment went too far, and Amber shouldn't have targeted Joanna in the situation;

2017 contestant Tyne Lexy Clarson even had her say, calling Amber's attitude a 'dead ting':

We're overwhelmed by all of this riff-raff. People are 100 percent overreacting, as if Amber was going to be braiding Joanna's hair and having a tea party with her? Let her be mad, people.

Don't invalidate the anger of women who have just experienced gaslighting at it's finest and stabbed in the Love Island back, jus' sayin'.

A study has figured out which of the Love Islander contestants have fake Instagram followers, and the answer is ALL of them. But who has the most?

Amber Gill apparently has 535,000 followers on Instagram, which will surely increase when she leaves the Spanish villa, but she may want to ditch some of the fake ones.

Data analysis carried out by Instagram influencer marketing service Takumi allege that the Geordie had the highest percentage of fake followers when she entered the villa.

Herself and new boy Jordan Hames both had 65 percent fake followers, which is pretty damn dodgy if you ask us.

The recently axed Islander Joe Garratt (412,000 followers) and Yewande Biala (365,000) both had 64 percent fake followers, and Michael Griffiths (478,000) had 63 percent.

Maura Higgins had the lowest number, but almost half of her 322,000 followers aren't real. Takumi’s CEO Adam Williams made a statement on the results:

"The results of our research show the extent to which fraudulent activity can take place on Instagram. Yet influencers are still powerful marketing tools due to their ability to resonate deeply with their core audiences."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Jordan Mainoo-Hames (@jxrdanhames) on

He continued;

"Brands must carefully consider who they work with and how they assess their worth. The scale of someone’s social media following doesn’t necessarily equate to real influence among consumers."

In order of who had the most followers, the list was;

Amber Rose Gill, Jordan Hames, Joe Garratt, Yewande Biala, Michael Griffiths, Callum McLeon, Tommy Fury, Danny Williams, Amy Hart, Lucie Donlan, Anna Vakili, Molly-Mae Hague, Anton Danyluk, Curtis Pritchard, Tom Walker and Maura Higgins.

The Love Island villa is already fairly dramatic, but things are about to get next level chaotic.

After last night's insanely intense recoupling, the producers of the hit ITV show are continuing the madness by sending in two new boys to heat the place up.

Maura and Anna were left single after Tommy and Anton chose Molly and Elma instead, and the solo pair immediately got a text saying they're heading on dates already.

The two new additions will mean that there will be an equal number of girls and boys in the house, but are there even enough beds? Probably not…which means sharing is caring.

The first boy up is 24-year-old Jordan Hames, a model from Manchester who is catching Anna's eye and getting his flirt on;

I bring something different to the other Islanders. I’ve got good energy, I’m really bubbly. I’ve got younger siblings I’m always teasing, so I think I’ll be a bit of a joker of the pack

What does he think are his best features? We're guessing he's pretty into himself…

"My best are my jawline, my trainer collection and how laid back I am in life. I don’t take myself too seriously. My worst traits are that I’m quite clumsy.

"I was once on a first date, bought two cocktails, went to sit down and knocked them over. Sometimes I leave things until the last minute, so I’m often in a rush," he said. Sounds a bit cute, eh?

He rates himself as a "solid 9.8 out of 10. Not quite a 10, no one is perfect. My best feature is my hair."

He's already admitted to loving all the girls in the villa; "I’m greedy in that sense. I like blondes, brunettes, red heads. I would say Anna, Amber, Molly-Mae and Elma are on my radar.

Who is he looking for? "Someone who has got nice eyes, good energy and good banter, someone who doesn’t take themselves too seriously but is career driven. I like them to be fiery," he said. We reckon Anna's pretty fiery.

"If I’m in a relationship with someone who says ‘yes’ all the time, I’ll just be seeing what I can get away with. I like someone spontaneous, I love travelling. I’m the sort of guy who will book to go on a city break on a Friday and then go on the Saturday."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Jordan Mainoo-Hames (@jxrdanhames) on

He calls himself a "smooth operator" when it comes to women, and he prefers to meet girls in real life over online; "I saw a girl who was wearing a nice pair of trainers at a concert once, so I went over and complimented her on them and that’s how we started talking. Otherwise I slide into the DMs."

Jennifer Lopez is his celebrity crush, and his main turn off in a girl 'with a really loud, annoying laugh': 

"Over the top. I don’t like really overly dramatic girls. I like girls who are more laid back and chilled, like me. I don’t like drama or people who are high maintenance."

He says he's heading into the villa for himself, so he's going to go all the way to get the girl of his dreams:

"I’m going in on my own, although I want to get along with the lads because I’m a lads’ lad, I’m there for myself so if I see a girl I want, I’m going to go for it."

His claim to fame is meeting David Beckham on a modelling shoot, which we're sure he mentions fairly often…

"For me it takes a lot for me to commit to a girl so when I am single I will dabble here and then. But when I’m committed I am 100% loyal. But only if I meet the right girl," he added.

How loyal will he stay to the boys, though? "I think there’s a gentleman way to go about things. I’m not one to do mates over like that. If I go for it, I’ll do it in the right way."

Fair enough, we're eager to see how things go between Jordan and Anna. Who's heading on a date with Maura? 29-year-old Tom Walker, from Leeds.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by (@tom9walker) on

 He describes himself as 'fun' and 'energetic': "I tend to get on with boys and girls. I’m a people person. I enjoy finding out about people. I’m also opinionated and enjoy good discussions." He sees himself as a bit of a Curtis, able to get on with everyone:

"I’m nosy, I enjoy asking questions and getting to know people. I’m fun and always up for doing things. I’m a yes man, I don’t turn many things down. The downside is that I sometimes find it hard to switch off. I can be quite annoying. I’m always on the go." 

He's a model, so he rates his appearance highly enough, but not a 10: "I think I’m a solid eight. I appreciate I’ve been blessed, I wouldn’t be modelling if I wasn’t. People compliment me on my jawline."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Tom Walker (@tom9walker) on

Who is he looking to couple up with?

"I like the new girls – Maura is a cannon. She’s gone in there and torn it up. She might be a bit too hot to handle. I really like Elma. She’s got a look I tend to go for. From day one I liked the look of Lucie, although she seems pretty happy and settled with Joe. I’ll find out whether she is when I get in."

We don't reckon Lucie and Joe are that stable, so maybe Tom will cause a split between the pair.

His perfect girl is "Someone that I can be myself around. I don’t have to play anything up or play anything down. Someone who has got an energy for life, enjoys travelling and socialising."

His celebrity crush is Michelle Keegan, and he meets girls in bars or through friends. He's never used dating apps, and all of his dates have been 'plain sailing'.

Bad teeth are his immediate turn-off, and he claims to be a 'man's man', whatever that is. " I get on well with guys, I’ve grown up playing football. But I’ve got to do what I’ve got to do. We’re all in there for the same reason. In terms of loyalty, he admits to having a wandering eye. (Anton, is that you?!):

"I’m a loyal person. Never say never to the wandering eye because it’s the way of the show. "You feel like you’re really into one person but then who knows? I will make calculated decisions and I’m not going to go rushing in. But I’m loyal so I don’t think I’ll be messing people around too much."

He describes 'Bro Code' as; "Just be honest. I don’t really want to deal with people that want to play games."

Would anyone know who the hell he is? "Through my work as a model, I’ve appeared in TV adverts and on billboards. People might recognise me from that," Tom says.

Who do we think the boys will suit in the villa? We can't WAIT for tonight's episode, see you at 9pm lads.
