Essex girl Francesca Allen has entered the Love Island villa alongside fellow newbie Chris Taylor.
With a claim to fame that’s no doubt prepared her for the truth of reality TV, Francesca reckons she’s an ideal islander because “she gets along with pretty much anyone”.
Here’s everything you need to know about the boutique owner, from who her age to her Instagram profile...
Francesca is 23 years old, meaning she’s a similar age to many of her co-stars, while Molly-Mae Hague is the youngest at 20 years old.
The brunette bombshell’s Instagram handle is @francesca_allen, where she has 9,690 followers on her first day of entering the ITV2 reality show.
Francesca uses her platform to share glamorous selfies, snaps of her super stylish outfits, and pictures of nights out with her friends – who include Sam and Billie Faiers and Ferne McCann.
Francesca and her sister own a boutique in Brentwood, Essex called Bonnie and Clyde.
The businesswoman said she’s after “someone who will really love and care for me, and look after me”, but she also wants someone who’s “fun and random”.
She’s got her eye on Anton Danyluk – who’s coupled up with Belle Hassan – and newly single Curtis Pritchard following his shock split from Amy Hart.
The 23 year old has a few connections to reality TV stars already, as her sister is the girlfriend of Sam Faiers’ partner’s Paul Knightley’s brother. She also used to have 2018 islander Jack Fowler as her personal trainer.
And with her boutique being based in Essex, Fran has got to know a lot of the The Only Way Is Essex cast including Georgia Kousoulou, Chloe Ross, and Chloe Lewis.
