That’s right, a new bombshell called Priya is walking into the villa, hoping to turn the heads of the current 2021 Islanders.

Love Island: What is Priya’s ethnicity?

  • Priya Gopaldas is Asian

She will be the third Asian contestant to enter the Love Island villa this year, after Shannon Singh, Sharon Gaffka, and Andrea-Jane Bunker.

Although unconfirmed, several fans think Priya is Indian. The name ‘Priya’ is also known to be an Indian name, so this is likely!

Priya is no stranger to the globe, as she has visited Tanzania, Macedonia, North America, Italy, Jamaica and France over the past two years.

Who are Priya Gopaldas’ parents?

  • Jaiprakash and Nisha Gopaldas

Priya appears to live in London with her parents, and brother.

Her mum Nisha is a secretary, and previously worked as a travel consultant, while the Love Islander’s dad is a pharmacist and director.

Looking through Instagram and Facebook, she is clearly close to her parents, and her dad is a keen runner just like her.

She shared a smiley picture with her family on her Facebook page, when they celebrated Christmas in 2020.

Many fans are hoping that the latest bombshell – and fifth year medical student at University College London – will turn Teddy’s head.

This is following drama which has taken place between Teddy and Faye, who are currently coupled up in the villa.

A TV source told the Mail Online: “Priya will turn heads for sure. She’s beautiful, intelligent and has a heart of gold.

“The guys will be scrambling over her if she gets the nod.”

During the height of the pandemic, Priya worked for six-day 12-hour shifts on the frontline, supporting doctors and nurses.
