Just because we're currently obsessed with all things winter Love Island 2023 doesn't mean we've forgotten about the original winter Love Island cast of series seven, which first aired in January 2020.

One of the most iconic Islanders of that series was Leanne Amaning. Seriously, her "Go away! Why are you so obsessed with me?" remarks to Mike Boateng will go down in history.

Leanne had pretty much stayed out of the entertainment spotlight since appearing on Love Island (until lately - see below), but we couldn't help but notice how amazing she looks with auburn hair following a 2022 "reinvention".

At the end of last year, Leanne said that 2022 had been a "transformative" year for her. She told her Instagram followers, "The personal growth alone has been a journey with a lot of healing, reprogramming, rediscovery & reinvention.

"With that being said, I’m grateful for everything. Happy New Year!!"

How was Leanne Amaning dumped from the villa?

In a brutal recoupling, just a day after Leanne admitted to Mike Boateng she had the "ick", Leanne was dumped from the villa, after Mike chose to couple up with Sophie Piper.

She later said, "Me and Mike, we didn’t work. I feel he’s justified in what he did by picking Sophie. That’s a big thing to do – it’s a bold move to make."

She continued, “But I feel like he’s disregarded the two weeks we spent together and I feel like sending me home was a bit of a kick in the teeth, but it might also be my karma for dumping him…"

When asked who was playing the biggest game, she said, “Maybe Mike now… it’ll be easier for him to crack on and do his thing without me there [but] oh, be serious… There’s absolutely no way [Sophie and Mike will get together]! I think they’re just good friends and they’re in a friendship couple.”

And ominously ending her interview, she concluded, "I’ve still got things to say in there. I would 100 per cent go back in.”
