What is Uma Jammeh's job?

Before heading into the villa Uma was a VIP host/model. Sounds boujee.

Why is Uma Jammeh on Love Island?

Ahead of her stint she said, "Now is a good time for me, I’m young. I’ve been single for my whole life, it’s about time I’m not single anymore. I’m ready for a boyfriend!

"I feel like I’ve been so unlucky in love! It’s all been underwhelming so far. I don’t know what the reason is, I think it’s them, as it can’t be me!"

What is Uma Jammeh's type?

The 23 year old told producers, "Definitely someone who can make me laugh, who has similar values to mine, and someone who is confident and likes to have fun."

Well, that could literally be any of the boys.

Although when asked which three celebs would she take into the villa she said, "Theo James, I literally love him. Him, him and him!

"Probably the F1 driver Lando Norris, I like his personality, he’s really cheeky and funny. And then Keith Lemon - someone who can make me laugh!"

How has Uma Jammeh described herself?

After hearing what she told producers, she sounds like an absolute hoot.

"All of my friends like to say that I like to have fun and make everyone else have fun too. I’ll bring a positive vibe and happiness," she admitted.

"When people first see me, they usually think I’m going to be horrible, they are always surprised when I’m not! I’ll bring confidence, and I like to think I’m funny."

She then added, "I’m gonna be the funniest girl in the villa!"
