We’re slowly getting to know the contestants better, with some recently opening up about their celebrity exes and past romances. Others have also shared what their occupation is outside of the villa, and some of their jobs may surprise fans.
Let’s take a look…

You are Deniz Lackenby-Brown
Zara Deniz Lackenby-Brown is another Islander with various talents. The 25-year-old, from London, is a performer, singer and property developer.
She studied musical theatre and performing arts at university and also has singing qualifications, which led to her being scouted as a model.
