Love Island's Tanya is already pals with famous celebs including Strictly star | The Sun

LOVE Island's Tanya Manhenga is already well known to certain celebs – from a Strictly star to ex-Islanders.

The biomedical student, 22, appeared to have caught the eye of dancing professional Neil Jones last year.



The ballroom star, 40, showed his appreciation on a post of her posing in a skintight neon orange dress.

Tanya looked sensational in the figure-hugging cut-out number, and it looks like Neil agreed, giving her a like on her post back in June, months before he started dating Casa Amor's Chyna Mills.

He also gave her the thumbs up on another in June last year, of Tanya rocking a sexy strapless black top and matching high waisted trousers.

This was followed by more likes of Tanya wearing over the knee leather boots, a bright orange handkerchief top and a black mini skirt.
