Love Island 2019 has seen an array of contestants walk through its villa doors, and one of them is Anna Vakili.
Anna Vakili was just one of the Love Island 2019 contestants to get everyone talking when she entered the villa.
But who is Anna Vakili and why did she decide to go on Love Island? Let's find out...
Anna Wakili, 29, is a pharmacist from London who's hoping to make it all the way to the Love Island final.
She believes herself to be different to anyone else who has been on the show before, describing herself as having "the whole glam look, I’m fun but at the same time I feel like I have more to me than that."
Anna also takes pride in her career as a pharmacist, stating: "I studied hard and I’ve got my masters. I’m a pharmacist and I have a Middle Eastern background."
When asked how she would describe her personality, Anna replied: "My best personality traits are that I’m very kind and emotional, I don’t like to see anyone hurt.
"I’m honest and I say it how it is to people and to their face. I’m affectionate, I love hugs and kisses, especially with a guy."
She also claims she's "difficult to handle" and a bit of a "drama queen".
Anna had an impressive 71k followers on Instagram before she entered the villa, but that rose to one million in seven weeks of her being on Love Island.

Before heading into Casa Amor, Anna stated: "I wouldn’t fight to get a guy, I’ll just be myself. The right guy will want me without me having to go far for him. Once I’ve got the guy and he likes me, I’ll go far to make him happy."
Season 5 of Love Island began on ITV2 on Monday 3 June, 2019.
The show starts at 9pm, but if you miss it, do not fret – you can catch up on ITVHub after the show.
