Who is Yewande Biala? Meet the 2019 Love Island cast member from Dublin.
Yewande Biala was one of the singletons in the original Love Island line-up, but after three weeks her hunt for love came to an end when partner Danny Williams had his head turned by new girl Arabella Chi.
Yewande Biala is a 23-year-old scientist from Dublin, who doesn’t believe there’s a science to finding love.
Before entering the villa she said: “I don’t think there is a science to finding love and If there is I’ve been reading the wrong books.”
Her dream man is Anthony Joshua, and Yewande is looking for someone "she can hold a normal conversation with".

Asked what makes her the perfect Islander, Yewande said: “I’m a scientist, which is a unique job. I think people may be surprised. Every time I say that I’m a scientist, people are socked. I think there are loads of intelligent people on reality television, last year we had Dr Alex and the year before we had Camilla Thurlow in the villa."
Love Island 2019 kicks off on ITV2 on Monday 3 June.
