Love Island is getting a new contestant

Who is Rebecca?

Rebecca is a carer and part-time model from Newcastle. The 21-year-old even has a couple of titles to her name: she won the Miss Newcastle competition in 2018, and even came sixth in the Miss England 2019 competition. Given that Rebecca works as a carer, it's clear that she's a very giving and compassionate person and also, according to her Instagram, involves herself in a number of charitable projects. Rebecca describes herself as fun, outgoing and a nine out of ten.

What is she looking for?

In her pre-villa interview, Rebecca said that she likes a "Jack the lad." She continued: "He's got to be the centre of attention, easy to get along with, and someone who gets involved with the chat." The Geordie also said that her celebrity crush is Christian Grey. "He's a man who knows what he wants," she stated.
