Kicking off 2023 strong, Love Island’s winter season is back, and aside from Maya Jama’s appearance, Lana Jenkins’ voice has got fans talking.
The 25-year-old joins 10 hopeful contestants in the South African villa, but many viewers aren’t a fan of her voice.
Despite her bubbly appearance, Lana’s accent has not enticed fans. But where exactly is she from?
Love Island’s Lana is fluent in Spanish
In her promo video posted a week before the show aired, Lana revealed she is from Luton. The make-up artist also shared she is fluent in Spanish.
Speaking in Spanish she said: “I lived in Spain for 10 years and now I live in Manchester.
She further said, “In life, in general, I just am ditsy. I muddle my words up all the time,” and struggled to pronounce ‘amicably’.
Lana revealed, whilst living in Spain she was an extra in the popular show ‘Benidorm’ and worked with many celebrities at her day job, including the ‘Brassic’ star Michelle Keegan.
Though she can speak the language of love, many fans have taken a dislike to the way she speaks.
