She claims to be 29 years old.
The new series of Love Island has only just begun but fans are already obsessed with it… but one question on everyone’s lips has been how old contestant Laura Anderson really is.
Fans have begun speculating that she might be older than the 29 years she claims to be, taking to Twitter:

I can’t be the only one who thinks laura is lying about her age? She looks mid-late 30’s.... #loveisland— Hayley (@hayley_kaye_) June 6, 2018

How are they all in their 20’s I’m just not having it that Laura is 29 #LoveIsland— Vicky Westwood (@vicwestwood) June 6, 2018
A day late to the #LoveIsland party. Is it me or do Laura and Wes both look about 40...?— Lara Datta (@Lara_O_21) June 5, 2018
On closer inspection of her Instagram account, Laura posted a photo with the caption “Since 1985”… which if she’s alluding to her date of birth would make her 33 years old:
However, she also posted a photo of herself with some birthday baloons back in 2014 when she turned 25, which would tally up to her being 29 after all.
She is also listed as having gone to high school between 2001 and 2005, which would also tally up with her being 29. Mystery = solved.
