Love Islands Danica Taylor to spill show secrets and dissect drama as OK! columnist

Danica Taylor will be commenting on the new series of Love Island in her brand new column with OK!.

Danica, 21, shot to fame on the most recent series of the popular dating show alongside the likes of Gemma Owen, Paige Thorne, Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Tasha Ghouri.

Danica will be joining us once a week for an exclusive Instagram Live, where you’ll have the chance to quiz her, as well penning a weekly column with all her thoughts on the latest series in South Africa.

Speaking ahead of her first column and live stream, Danica admitted that she was excited to chat about the newest series – where Maya Jama will be making her hosting debut after replacing Laura Whitmore.

“I might be known as Danica from HR and for my love of twerking but besides that, I’m also a huge fan of the show so I cannot wait to chat all things drama, love and bombshells as well as spilling the piping hot tea about what villa life is really like,” she said.

This year's new Islanders have already been revealed and include a teacher, a body double and a make-up artist.

Newcomer Ron Hall is set to make history as the show's first partially blind contestant. He lost his sight in one eye after a horror footballing accident at the age of eight.

Speaking ahead of his debut, the 25 year old said he hopes to inspire other partially sighted young people.

Danica’s new column comes after the TV star shared her thoughts on her fellow contestants in an exclusive chat with OK!, where she predicted that Ekin-Su and beau Davide Sanclimenti will have a baby in the not-so-distant future.

“They’re mature and they genuinely do love each other from what I’m aware,” she said of the winning pair in August.

"I’m surprised [they didn’t] have a Love Island wedding right there and then to be honest.

“Ekin, she’s absolutely dying for it. They’ll probably be popping out a baby in the next two years or so.”

Meanwhile, Danica previously shared that she once thought Tasha and Andrew Le Page were faking their romance.

She said: “There were times I questioned, ‘Is it genuine? Is it real? Are they playing a game?’

“Once it was a boyfriend and girlfriend thing, that’s when we all started to go, 'Hang on, this is real. They’ve really fallen for each other.'"

Tasha and Andrew and Davide and Ekin-Su are just some of the few couples that remain from last summer’s series, alongside Dami Hope and Indiyah Pollack.

Danica embarked on a romance with fellow Islander Jamie Allen on the show, but sadly the pair have since split.

Previously speaking about what attracted him to Danica, Jamie exclusively told OK!: "Firstly, for me, was the physical attraction, that’s the first box that has to be ticked and that’s obviously there.

"The second thing is the confidence, when you look at Danica, she’s confident and fiery, but then she’s got the other side to her, the softer and more sensitive side.

"And then when I met her, the first conversation we could tell we were bouncing off each other – laughing and joking about silly stuff."

They called time on their romance in late August.
