A makeup artist from Stevenage is already making waves on this year’s reality TV show Love Island – which sees singles get it on in the sun.

Kady McDermott was voted in by the public along with Terry Walsh to join the islanders on Tuesday’s show, where contestants need to be in a couple to compete for a £50,000 prize.

The 20-year-old made quite an impact in last night’s episode, going on a date with Javi Shephard and confessing she fancied Scott Thomas – who had paired up at the start with Miss Great Britain’s Zara Holland.

Before winning a public vote to join the original islanders at the Fiji villa, Kady said: “I say it how it is and I’m straight to the point. I’m a bit like marmite, because not everyone likes that.”

Kady used to date model Sam Reece, the ex of Stephanie Davis, who famously cheated on him when she entered the Celebrity Big Brother House.
