Love Island UK will return for the first time since 2020 with Season 9, featuring 10 singletons who will try to make a connection and see it through to the finish. Lana Jenkins, a 25-year-old makeup artist, and former Benidorm cast member, is one of the singles due to feature on the program. She appeared as an extra on the ITV program before being chosen for the reality dating show. Love Island UK Season 9 premieres on ITV2 on January 16 at 9 p.m. ET.
Meet Lana Jenkins, who will be appearing on Love Island UK Season 9!
Lana Jenkins, a 25-year-old makeup artist from Luton who previously worked on the sets of Brassic, is due to debut on Love Island Season 9. She collaborated closely with Michelle Keegan on the program. Lana resided in Spain as a youngster and starred in an episode of Benidorm. She has previously worked with and dated many reality stars as part of her job. She was formerly in a relationship with Owen Warner, a Hollyoaks actor, reality celebrity, and I’m a Celebrity contestant. Following Owen’s divorce from Stephanie Davis, the two began dating in 2020.
They revealed their relationship on Instagram in a since-deleted post and were connected by mutual friends when she was working on CBBC’s So Awkward. They dated for a few months before calling it quits. Lana has been alone for around two or three years and thinks that the time has come for her to try something new. She confesses to falling in love with people rapidly before participating in Love Island. She said that if all goes well, she would most likely tell them that she loves them in a week. Men giving her question marks if she hasn’t responded in a while, on the other hand, is an immediate turn-off.
She went on to say:
“I don’t mind if people contact me all the time, but if you send me question marks and I haven’t responded in a while, you’re out. That raises a massive red flag for me! Also, if I see a man topple over, I’m immediately turned off.”
Haris Namani, Olivia Hawkins, Shaq Muhammad, Tanyel Revan, Will Young, Anna-May Robey, Ron Hall, Kai Fagan, and Tanya Manhenga join Lana on Love Island.
