Love Island’s latest lineup of contestants features a local “girls' girl” - here is everything we know about Portsmouth’s Mimii Ngulube.

The popular show sees singles mingle in a Mallorcan villa in hopes of finding a new partner.

Mimii Ngulube, a 24-year-old mental health nurse from Portsmouth, joined ten other people looking for love in the new series. She describes herself as a “girls' girl” and spontaneously decided to apply after becoming dissatisfied with the Portsmouth dating pool. She hopes to bring style and laughs to the villa as she meets the other contestants next week.

Speaking ahead of the new series, Mimi said: "The pool in Portsmouth is not giving. I’ve tried dating, speaking to people on social media and it just hasn’t been successful. Applying was a spontaneous thing, I didn’t expect to get here. I’m a girls’ girl. My girls are my rocks and I’m theirs so I’ll be a good friend as well as going in there to find a man. "I like dressing up so I’ll bring style, and I’d like to think I’m quite funny so I’ll make people laugh. Bringing honesty as well — I’m good at picking up on people's personality traits and side-eyeing those who might be a liar."
