Love Island is in full swing in June 2022 and the bombshells just keep entering the villa like there’s no tomorrow. First there was Davide who sent the boys into meltdown with his entrance, now Danica has entered the building.

As always, the ITV2 show is jam-packed with drama, but this year really could take the biscuit as there are sneaky chats on the terrace, secret kisses, saucy challenges and more. It could be daunting for some people to enter the villa at this point, but Danica Taylor says she’s “happy to rattle a few girls about“.

Danica hails from Leicester and works as a dancer. She said on the show that she just graduated with a degree in dance and also dances professionally. She added that she does Samba and Latin American dancing.

She’s been single for a year so she’s ready to mingle in the villa and she’s certainly not afraid to step on other people’s toes.

Speaking to the girls on the show, Danica said that she’s half Jamaican and half British.

Danica says she’s ‘wise beyond her years’

Danica Taylor is one of the younger Islanders on the ITV2 show in 2022 but she says she is “quite wise beyond her years“.

According to Danica, she’s very good with advice and doesn’t shy away from drama or arguments. She said that her mum would describe her as a “bit of a princess“.

She’s looking for a man who can match her energy and adds that arrogance gives her the ick.

Danica is self-assured and told the girls in the villa that she’s a fiery Aries sign.
