A new contestant is set to shake up things in the Love Island villa. 27-year-old Alexandra Cane will make a surprise entrance on the hit dating show tonight.
Get to know the make-up artist from Hertfordshire below:
What makes you stand out from everyone else?
I’m a little bit older than some of the others in the villa. I’m always the life and soul of the party and I’m a bit of a joker. I’m just always super positive and I love life. I like to spread positivity around everybody.
What are you looking for in the villa?
I’d love to meet someone. I’m setting my sights on Josh. He is so my type looks-wise. I feel like Dr Alex could be a good match for me. I feel like we’d have some really in depth conversations, I’m knowledgeable, he is knowledgeable. Hopefully I can bring out his personality a bit. I’d like to get to know him.
What are your best attributes?
Probably my eyes are the most obvious thing guys would look at. I’m very grounded and fun loving, I take care of people and if you’ve got my heart I will always do my best for you.
Any bad habits or things people might find less likeable about you?
I’m quite loud which can get annoying. Also apparently I eat loudly.
Tell us about your relationship history...
I’m friends with most of my exes. I’m the type of person that, I like to maintain a good relationship with people, even if things have come to an end because I did care about that person once.
What are your thoughts on cheating?
I read a lot about love – books from anthropologists and speakers so my mind is frazzled with my thoughts on monogamy. I don’t really know as humans if we are meant to be monogamous. I started reading about it and about different types of love. I don’t condone cheating and I don’t agree with it but I would do everything in my power to try and understand why cheating happens.
If a Love Islander could woo you, what is the best way to your heart?
Be a real gentleman to me and have character, I love somebody with a personality otherwise I feel like I’m carrying the relationship.
What do you find the biggest turn off in a guy?
Someone who is over the top. I like someone who is just calm and natural.
What has been the most disastrous date you’ve ever been on?
I went on one date where a guy didn’t turn up for an hour so I ordered without him, ate my food then he turned up and I left and he had to pay the bill.
How important will friendship be to you in the villa?
I’m an only child so my friends are my family. I’ve got a lot of good, close relationships with girls outside of the villa. With girls, I am protective, I do like to give advice. I’m going to have to tread on somebody’s toes at this stage. I want to be as respectful as I can, I know I won’t always please everybody but I hope I create some good friendships in the villa.
Have you got any claims to fame?
I was Demi Rose’s makeup artist. We met a few years ago and I was her makeup artist for two years. I’ve got a large Instagram following from working with her. As a makeup artist, I have worked in the industry for a while. I’ve worked with music artists and I’ve dated a few.
Love Island continues tonight on 3e from 9pm.
