All about: Lillie
Why have you signed up to Love Island?
Usually I’m very loyal and I meet one guy, date him, date him only and then I end up being his girlfriend and it never works out. So I wanted to meet loads of different people that I wouldn’t normally come across and date them all essentially and then pick who I like from that bunch rather than sticking with one and rolling with that. So – variation!
Tell us about your job and how your colleagues would describe you.
I was always maths and science based at school, I was more natural at that kind of thing. I followed my passion route originally, which was dancing. And then I realised I should probably go back to my natural capabilities. I liked the sound of finance and accountancy. My colleagues would describe me as a lovable headache. I’m very loud, I’ve always got a new story to tell in the office.
Who have you got your eye on in the villa?
I’ve definitely got my eye on Jake. He’s 100% the type of boy I would go for at home. It’s too good of a match not to just go for. Liam is definitely a dark horse for me, he’s like James Bond when you look at him, absolutely gorgeous. So he could be a very close second.
Will you step on toes to get what you want?
I love a challenge. I’m just going to be myself. I’m quite cheeky, naturally flirty, make it clear what I want anyway. If I get the signals of ‘back off, I’m sleeping outside by myself’ then I will… I’m going in there to date people I don’t usually date. I will explore other options. I’ll make it clear that I’m going in for that. I don’t mind stepping on toes. I’m there for the same reason they are.
What do you think you will bring to the villa?
I’m a harsh person – I just say things how they are. If a girl’s crying over a boy I’m not going to sit in pity. I’ll give her the right advice, but I’ll say, ‘Toughen up, you’re here for a reason, stop wasting your time.’
How would your friends and family describe you?
Very ‘get what I want’, I have no filter at all. If I want something I’ll be the first one out there, trying it, doing it and I’m not scared to take risks.
