Jess Harding is a businesswoman who runs Candy Aesthetics in West London and is set to enter the villa when the long-running dating show kicks off.

She has prominent profiles on both Instagram and TikTok, whilst her social media presence is strong on Instagram especially, where she already boasts over 25,000 followers.

Jess posts a lot of content showing her travels abroad and enjoying life with friends.

The beauty clinic owner is set to stun and amaze in the Love Island villa this summer.

Speaking to ITV about what she will bring to the villa, she said: “Firstly I think I’ve got quite a big personality and I’ve got a heart of gold. I can stand up for myself if I need to. I’m honest, and I love, love. I’m also a really good girlfriend.

“Because every boy is giving me the ick at the moment. I feel like it’s fate because I’m saving myself for Mr Right in the Villa!”

Speaking about what puts her off men: ” When a guy stunts for money, that’s an ick.

“Showing off all their designer clothes because most of the time they’re probably fake anyway! Another one is when a boy runs for the train and the train goes without him. Lunch Boxes also – just go to Tesco and get a meal deal!”

Meanwhile, an insider told HOAR: “Jess is one of the most glamorous islanders ever and is sure to be a big hit with the boys and viewers.

“She’s a real head-turner and has the personality to go with it.”
