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."

Ex Love Island stars Arabella Chi and Wes Nelson have confirmed their romance after they were spotted getting cosy together on a Manchester night out.

The duo were pictured getting close while out clubbing, with photos showing the couple heading off to the Malmaison hotel on Thursday morning.

The pair went on low-key date to the cinema today, making their fling official. Rumours of 21-year-old Wes, from the 2018 show, and 28-year-old Arabella first swirled at the end of July.

The pair went on a romantic pizza date together back then, and new images obtained by The Sun show the couple walking hand-in-hand. It's almost as if they wanted to be pictured together, eh?

The model reunited with Wes when she returned from a work trip to Mallorca. The couple were later seen kissing at the table, and have been seeing each other ever since.

Arabella was voted out of the villa this year after only three days after catching the attention of 24-year-old model Danny Williams, who was coupled up with Yewande Biala.

Danny ended up dumping Yewande for the blonde bombshell, but she was voted off the next day by the public and her fellow housemates. Danny has since started another romance with Jourdan Riane

Wes coupled up with Megan Barton-Hanson in the 2018 series and the pair went on to date for six months before their bitter split over Dancing on Ice cheating allegations.

Arabella and Wes's relationship status comes as Megan appears Celebs Go Dating, getting emotional over her break-up with her Wes.

Megan said that she felt "embarrassed and betrayed" after finding out that he was sexting Love Island winner Amber Davies. Time will tell whether this is just another fling for Arabella and Wes.

Well, karma's a b*tch and it seems she's following around Michael Griffiths for the foreseeable future. 

The firefighter turned reality star tried to play it cool after his car got clamped in Manchester yesterday, but he couldn't help smirking as he walked away from his white Mercedes.

The flashy car was spotted with a yellow clamp on its front left wheel and a pricey fine on the windscreen, totally immobilised. We promise we're not laughing.

Cars are normally clamped for illegal parking, or if they're untaxed and on a public road. The Love Island star will have to pay a steep fine to get his motor back, or will have the car towed.

Michael did his best to walk away nonchalantly from the scene, but didn't succeed. The 27-year-old was caught in a whirlwind love triangle on the show, with Amber Gill and Joanna Chimonides.

Amber went on to win the show with Irish charmer Greg O'Shea, after Michael tried and failed to win her back. What a moment that was for the chaldish man.

The Sun Online revealed he was kissing Casa Amor's Nabila Badda after the reunion show on Sunday, before cracking on with Joanna Chimonides again.

Pictures showed the Michael planting a kiss on Nabila before getting intimate with Joanna straight afterwards. It won't be long before his head gets turned again, we reckon.

Joanna was dumped from the Island, branding Michael a "snake" after he wouldn't leave the villa with her. She's denying that they're romantically involved, despite being photographed kissing.

Controversial statement incoming; Love Island's Danny Williams and Jourdan Riane have already discussed marriage, despite having only known each other for less than a month. Sounds super real, doesn't it?

The ITV reality stars confirmed their relationship after they were dumped from the island weeks before the final, and now say they're completely in love. 

The pair have obviously been plagued with accusations of a 'showmance', but are emphasising that their love is real when they appeared on a Channel 5 online interview today.

"Could you guys see yourselves getting married?" presenter Will Njobvu asked them. "Are you going to marry me?" Jourdan quizzed Danny, leaning in to his face.

"Are you going to marry me? Are you going to propose?" he responded. "Wooow!" Jourdan laughed. "No, I can see this lasting."

Danny gushed to his new girlfriend: "I said to you, when you met my parents, this has got long-term written all over it, and I've never said that before in a relationship. She met everyone – grandmas, little cousins, everybody loved her, and for me that's a massive thing."

"And vice versa," Jourdan added.

"I think if that's happening already I can definitely see long-term future plans with you," Danny said. "We've got holidays booked already, it's good."

Jourdan commented: "We're best friends already, it's a very chilled relationship. It's working. Hope so, fingers crossed it works. I do see it lasting and working."

The couple were dumped by their fellow Islanders for being the least compatible romance, but have made a flying start to their relationship on the outside.

They attended a star-studded viewing party of the final, where Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea became king and queen of the villa and split the £50,000 between them.

Danny and Jourdan were joined by none other than Yewande Biala, who was fuming when Danny's head was turned by Arabella Chi in the villa and chose the model in the next recoupling, leaving her dumped.

Ex-Love Island star Danny Williams has revealed that he's contacted the police over a series of racist death threats made against him.

The 21-year-old model commented that the abuse he's been receiving has been "worse than you can imagine."

He told OK! Magazine: “I’ve had death threats, racism, people threatening to come ‘round to my house and hurt my family."

He continued; “As worse as you can imagine, I’ve had it all. And it’s still happening today. Daily.

“When it’s racist and it’s threats and you have to get the police involved that’s next level. And it got to that extent."

Social media has been a cesspit for death threats targeting reality stars;

“I'm going to bed at night I go on my phone like everybody else does, and you see some of the people saying they're going to come and kill me or, 'You're a horrible sick f' and whatever.”

He added: “Everyone’s entitled to their opinions, but there’s never an excuse for that kind of stuff. It’s horrible.”

Danny became an infamous Love Island character known as the 'travel agent', as every girl he liked ended up on a plane home.

His relationship with Jourdan Riane appears to be getting stronger by the day, at least.

During an interview on Capital Breakfast with hosts Roman Kemp and Vick Hope, the pair announced that they'd become official.

Roman quizzed the pair on their relationship status, asking: "Have you dropped the girlfriend/boyfriend question?"

Jourdan replied with a teasing comment; "Potentially…" However, Danny then confirmed: "Yeah we have, it's official."

We all had plenty of respect for ex-Love Island contestant Yewande Biala, especially when she told Danny Williams (remember the travel agent?); "What goes around come around." 

As it turns out, her only regret from her time in the villa was not having the chance to couple up with Ovie Soko, who would have been PERFECT for her with his chill vibes and respect for women.

Ovie arrived during the Casa Amor part of the series, which Yewande just missed out on after being eliminated.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Yewande (@yewande_biala) on

Danny Williams stupidly chose to dump the scientist in favour of newcomer Arabella Chi, and the Dubliner said that they should have brought Ovie in sooner for her.

"Where was Ovie when I was crying in the beach hut saying 'no one likes me,'" Yewande told RTÉ Entertainment.

"That would've been the perfect time to be like, 'Ok we're going to send Ovie in as the bombshell'." He's 100 percent bombshell material, we'll give her that. Yewande also makes a very good point.

She's a firm believer in the idea that "everything happens for a reason", but she admits that she'd have coupled up with Ovie if she had been given the opportunity.

"I'm a real firm believer that everything happens for a reason so I feel that if you did change something, I wouldn't have the outcome – it could be worse, it could be better, I don't know – so I think I'd just leave it as it is," she explained.

"I had an amazing experience, I laughed, I cried, it was great."

Ovie is currently in a friendship couple with Amber Gill, but Yewande is convinced that Amber is, "still too hurt from Michael and I don't think anyone's really going to work romantically, I don't think she's ready for anything romantically in that villa."

What about Irish hunk Greg? We saw sparks when the rugby player and future solicitor met her for a date in the Hideaway. Michael rudely interrupted the pair last night to ask Amber for a chat, the devil.

Yewande expressed her shock at Michael's toxic behaviour towards Amber since their split and Casa Amor recoupling with Joanna Chimonides.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Yewande (@yewande_biala) on

"It's shocking how he's treated her from that, because that's not the Michael that I know," she said.

"I really want to be like, 'What are you doing? Can you just explain your thought process.' I just don't understand what's happened. It's just really unfortunate because I really wanted them to win and I thought if they stayed together they were really strong and they possibly could've won."

We desperately hope Amber calls him a 'dead ting' and walks away, because if she goes back to that horrible man it sets an awful example. You wouldn't treat your pet pooch the way Michael treated her.

Yewande also opened up about life in the Love Island villa; “We’ve no ­concept of time.

“There was a time where Joe (Garratt) found out that you could check the time on the cooker and then they changed it so we’ve no concept of time whatsoever. We always guestimated when the sun came out.”

The contestants are filmed 24 hours a day, and are told to dress up every evening to create a party vibe in the house. They must wait until producers confirm that their filming commitments are over before they go to bed.

The Islanders are also gifted with ­sponsored wardrobes to wear for the duration of their stay and they avail of the laundry service once a week (but don't do any of the housework).

Yewande urged viewers to be aware that the footage they see doesn’t always portray reality, seeing as it's just an hour of television per day.

She told Virgin Media Television’s Ireland AM: “You are only seeing an hour of what went on in 24 or 48 hours so it’s really hard to judge a person’s personality by just watching an hour.”

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Yewande (@yewande_biala) on

Yewande admits she’s also sceptical about Maura and Curtis' relationship;

“I just don’t know. When I was in there I didn’t really see it, but I’ve been out of there a while and I know that everything moves really quickly in there.”

She reckons Maura’s head could be turned by newcomer Greg O’Shea, a professional rugby player from Limerick who went on a date with Amber.

Yewande who reckons lovebirds Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague, who are in a relationship, are “smitten”.

However, she warned : “At the end of the day it is a game and not everyone is genuine.”

But while she may have left without a boyfriend, Yewande insists that;

 “It’s a great way to find love, not even just romantic love. It’s a great way to learn about yourself as a person. It’s also great to find an amazing group of friends.”

While four Islanders exit tonight's Love Island, fresh faces will also arrive to spice things up even more.

That's right people, TWO sexy singletons will make their way into the villa amid a quadruple dumping, and Amy's exit voluntarily.

Anna Vakili's 29th birthday bash was interrupted last night by the shock news that Jourdan and Danny were voted out of the show as the least favourite couple.

The Islanders will gather around the fire put and discover that they must decide amongst themselves which couple can stay and which must leave; George and Lucie or Curtis and Amy.

Bear in mind that neither pairing are actually dating each other, following Amy's heartbreak when Curtis' head was turned and he savagely dumped her. George… well… his chat up line was about snacks.

Four will depart the ITV reality show tonight, but two brand new Islanders will bring big changes to the villa. We're guessing the dynamics will make a big shift.

It's worth mentioning that Marvin, Maura, Amber and Ovie are now single (Ovie and Amber need to create the rom-com of the summer and take their friendship to the next level) but the public haven't forgotten how devious Michael was.

The lad is a perfect example of toxic masculinity, and showed gaslighting tendencies while brutally ending his coupling with the unsuspecting Amber (the word CHALDISH was thrown around way too often).

We're guessing Michael and Joanna will be the next couple targeted, but also Curtis and Amy must be saved tonight seeing as Amy walks away?

Just as the remaining two couples think they are safe, there is another big bombshell from the producers.

Tommy Fury receives a text which states:

"One more couple will be dumped, the other couple will remain in the villa. The couple which stays and couple that is dumped will be decided by your fellow Islanders."

Former air hostess Amy Hart has left Love Island under mysterious circumstances following a heartbreaking few days for her.

The 26-year-old is the fifth star to leave this week, and her exit will be shown tonight. Hopefully we get a glimpse of the two newbies as well.

It's set to be quite the shocker of an episode, tune in at 9pm on Virgin Media.

Oh, Yewande – what will we do with you?

You had everyone rooting for you and now they've had enough.

In some ways, I don't blame viewers for being fed up with her huffy, cold and downright rude treatment of Danny.

On the other hand, I totally empathise with how being crippled with insecurity can make you wanna jump ship before you're left heartbroken.

Self-preservation, right?

But she has been the perfect example of how you can f&ck up a relationship before you've en given it a chance.

Many fans of Love Island are saying that by repeating, ''Oh, Danny's head will be turned'' that she's GIVEN HIM A REASON TO HAVE HIS HEAD TURNED. 

Self-fulfilling prophecy – that was until the other Islanders stepped in in last nights episode.

So Amber, Michael, Curtis, Amy, and Anna gathered round the scientist and gave her a much-needed kick up the arse about how she was acting around Danny.

They played out scenes showing her what she really looked like in her interactions – and it was brilliant.

The penny did seem to drop and Yewande dropped the mask of insecurity and asked Danny to talk. 

He looked delighted as she promised to be more affectionate and they even had a kiss.

But fans of the show are not buying it- as the new girl, Arabella had taken Danny n date that day and they think Yewande was being fake.

One said, ''Yewande stated she knew that when someone else came in his head would be turned. I say he's heads been turned because of her behaviour and she's got no one to blame only her self.''

While another wrote, ''Everyone’s sending for Yewande “she’s only acting like that for Danny cuz Arabella came in” yet Molly acres the same way with Maura yet no one sent for her but okay.''

The preview for tonight looks like Yewande might have been right all along as Danny talks about the chemistry between him and Arabella – or is he just fed up of Yewandes attitude?

We'll be tuning in tonight to find out…

Molly-Mae has barely been in the villa five minutes but is already causing her fair share of tension among the girls and the boys alike.

Yewande deserves her shot at love, and when she was sent on a date with new Love Island-er Danny Williams, she came back positively glowing. GLOWING.

Despite the fact that Molly already has Tommy and Anton fighting it out to win her heart/other body part, she turned her attention firmly towards Danny when he walked in the door.

Yewande has failed to find romance on the show so far, after being coupled with the gorgeous Scouser Michael Griffiths, but Danny invited both her and Amber on a date last night and Yewande's seemed to go better.

Our excitement almost got out of hand when the pair kept making prolonged eye contact, but all was foiled the second Molly turned her attention towards him. "He's so my type," she says.

(Bear in mind, she has said this many times…) Irish Twitter were having absolutely NONE of her, though, and are backing up Yewande.

“Tall boys are just a thing for me,” Molly said. Talking about her flirtationship with Tommy Fury, she said: “I just feel like he is in ‘Tommy Land’ and I’m trying to get my way into it.

“Maybe I need to get into ‘Danny Land’?” Yewande was upset about Molly-Mae's comments, although she did insist that Danny isn't hers to have and to hold.

“She says he’s her type,” Yewande said. “Everyone is her f****** type.” Those science kitty claws are coming out, and we don't blame her. Molly is seriously trampling on girl code.

The memes about the love triangle were absolutely hoppin' on Twitter last night.

The UK and Ireland have both seemingly sided with Yewande, because she must be protected at all costs.

We love when Yewande stands up for herself, but that "everyone's her fucking type" clap back SHOOK US. 

We are also SERIOUSLY appreciating the fact that Yewande is getting more screen time. God is good.

The boys escorting Yewande over to Danny, and Anna and Amy having her back until the end has us weeping:

Yewande's fan club aren't taking any risks when it comes to Molly-Mae…

The boys are lusting after Molly-Mae but realise that Yewande needs her Danny Boy:

They don't seem to mind stepping on each others toes, but Molly-Mae has already pissed off Amy when she asked for a date with Curtis so she CAN'T BE TRUSTED:

In summary, Team Yewande for the win, Team Molly is a sin. Our Irish representative in the villa needs our undying Danny love, and we have to stan.

Tune in tonight to see who Danny makes a move on, and to check out Amber and Michael slowly falling more in love *single tear*.

Who is the latest sh*t-stirring good-looking person to be chucked inside the Love Island villa? Danny Williams, that's who. He's already starting a love triangle.

The 21-year-old is a model from Hull, and is exceptionally confident. No surprises there.

In a teaser which aired at the end of Friday's episode, Danny said:

"I would describe myself as a happy-go-lucky guy. I think I'm funny, I can be, but definitely someone who's ambitious and knows what they want."

He added; "I don't think I fall in love easily because I think I have high standards. I think the right girl for me would be ambitious, independent and have loads of fun as well."

Danny's Instagram describes him as a 'fashion model", with a bio saying, "Work hard, be nice." He's really transforming the world of philosophy there, isn't he.

Williams has chosen to go on a date with both Amber and Yewande, which will go ahead in tonight's episode. Drama is to be expected, but we suspect he'll suit Amber more. They both have that ego thing going on…

Danny joins Amber Gill, Anna Vakili, Amy Hart, Anton Danyluk, Joe Garratt, Molly-Mae Hague, Tommy Fury, Curtis Pritchard, Lucie Donlan, Sherif Lanre, Michael Griffiths and Yewande Biala in the Spanish villa.

The first dumping of the series happened on Friday, with Callum Macleod getting eliminated from Love Island first. He later shared that he had a bit of a crush on Yewande, which was some spicy goss.

The hit ITV2 show continues nightly on Virgin Media 2 at 9pm. Will Danny choose Amber or Yewande to be his lady? Time will tell.
