Winter Love Island contestant Lana Jenkins admits she's "really picky" about who she lets in her life.

The Luton-based make up artist previously dated Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner, 23, who was a finalist on last year's series of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

And in her interview ahead of entering the South African villa next week, Lana has admitted she's "really picky" after previous relationships.

When asked why she's currently single, the 25 year old replied: "Because I've been through relationships that have made me want to find someone perfect, I've been with people that haven't been meant for me.

"Since then I've been really picky about who I go for and who I let into my life."

It's reported that Lana and Owen briefly dated in 2020 shortly after his split from Hollyoaks co-star Stephanie Davies, 28, having been introduced by mutual friends while she was working on CBBC's So Awkward.

The relationship only lasted a couple of months, and Lana has yet to mention her famous ex ahead of her stint in the villa.

Lana, who is also fluent in Spanish, claims she's "amazing in a relationship" and will bring flirty vibes to the latest series of the ITV2 stalwart reality series.


She said: "I've been single for quite a while, I'm normally a relationship type of person so the fact that I've been single for two, almost three, years is quite rare for me.

"Now's the right time for me to be doing something a bit different. I've not been able to find anyone who suits me so it's good to do something totally different and try to meet someone a different way."

She continued: "I think I will bring a lot of flirtation, I’m funny and I think I'm just a good person – so I will probably get on with everyone," she said.

"I’ll just go in there, have a laugh and have a really good time. If I’m lucky, and there is someone I get along with, I think it could be really special. I’m looking for something that's a bit deeper, something more serious that could turn into something long term and hopefully a little love story.

"I’m amazing in a relationship! I’m a good cook, good at tickles, I’m fun to be around – but also very relaxed and laid back."

The new series of Love Island starts on Monday 16th January on ITV2, fronted by new host Maya Jama.
