Love Island’s Sharon Gaffka is tipped to ‘take everyone by surprise’ on the show

Brits are getting ready for another summer of singletons heading to the iconic Love Island villa in the hope of finding love.

After the coronavirus pandemic cancelled last year's summer series of the hit ITV2 show, it's been a long wait for fans to get their fix.

But the show finally returns for its seventh season on Monday 28 June, meaning we haven't got long to wait before the singletons hit the villa.

But who is the first confirmed constant?

Who is Sharon Gaffka?

A former pageant queen from Dicot, Berkshire, Sharon combines both beauty and brains having studied law at Birbeck University.

She was crowd Miss International United Kingdom in 2018, and now works as an Operations Lead for the Department of Transport.

During the coronavirus pandemic, Sharon also worked towards the launch of the NHS Test and Trace system.

The new love islander is also an ambassador for the Young’s Women’s Trust.

A source said: “Sharon is intensely political and a big campaigner around equality and women’s rights.

She’s always talked of wanting to work in politics so is likely to use her platform on the show to talk about issues which she feels passionately about”.

Friends of Sharon have said there’s “zero chance” the women’s campaigner will have sex in the villa.

The confirmed beauty queen islander is due to enter the villa five years after Zara Holland, ex-Miss Great Britain, lost her title after having sex on the ITV2 show with Alex Bowen.

During her time in the villa, friends have said Sharon will use her platform to advocate and support women’s rights.

Another source has added that Sharon has been tipped to “take everyone by surprise” on Love Island.

Sharon's Instagram

With beauty and bikini shots, fashion and glam, Sharon’s enviable Instagram shows a clear insight into the luxury life she leads.

The new islander has already secured 17.2K followers on her Instagram, amongst those are ex-love islanders, Lucie Rose Donlan and Amy Hart who also follow her.

The number of followers during and after Sharon’s time in the villa is set to increase heavily.

Past love islander Molly Mae, who appeared on the fifth season of the hit show, now has over 5.5 million followers after taking second place with Tommy Fury in 2019.

Love Island will return to ITV2 on Monday, June 28 at 9pm.

We can look forward to eight weeks of love, drama and iconic narrating from Iain Stirling as the singletons head to the iconic villa on the island of Mallorca.

Want to join Sharon in the villa?

If you’re looking for love and want to head to the iconic island there is still time to apply.

Applications for this year’s Love Island close on July 15, 2021, you must be 18 or over at the time of entering the villa and be a singleton looking for love.
