It's hard to believe that iconic Love Island 2022 stars like Tasha Ghouri, Gemma Owen, Indiyah Polack and Dami Hope entered their Majorcan villa almost a year ago. It's also hard to believe that 2022 winners Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Davide Sanclimenti weren't actually day one OGs, but in fact, bombshells. AKA that's how you bombshell 💣 💅.

As downright legendary as those Islanders turned out to be (Love Island royalty), one of our absolute faves from series 8 came in the form of booty-shaking pocket rocket Danica Taylor – was she, or was she not ALL OF US in that villa?

The nation fell head over heels with her, making her tumultuous Love Island journey that much harder to watch night after night. But, as it turns, there was a happily after in store for our girl at the final hurdle of her Love Island fairy tale in the form of pro footballer/last-minute Casa Amor bombshell Jamie Allen.

Who? Fair... That's why our editors asked us to write this article.

Who is Jamie Allen?

Jamie Allen joined the cast of Love Island 2022 as a bombshell on day 45 and was dumped from the island on day 51. Although only in the villa for less than a week, he managed to win the heart of Danica Taylor and the couple were dumped from the show together, just missing out on the final. He is also a professional football player.

When was Jamie Allen on Love Island?

Jamie was on Love Island in the summer of 2022 – he was a Casa Amor bombshell. He was actually in the villa for less than one week in July 2022.

What happened with Jamie Allen and Danica Taylor?

Danica didn't have the easiest of rides on the show and, after coupling up with a record-breaking SIX boys, she left the villa alongside Jamie - although, sadly, that eventually fizzled out, too. The couple called it quits two weeks into their relationship in the outside world; this was pretty much confirmed when the world caught sight of Danica locking lips with TOWIE hunk Roman Hackett.

A source told the Daily Mail, "Danica and Jamie have gone their separate ways. They did make their relationship official but have decided that they didn't quite work together romantically.

"Jamie has just signed for a new football team and Danica is busy pursuing endless opportunities after leaving the Love Island villa and they sadly drifted apart.

"They're good friends still and will continue to support each other in everything they do."

Is Jamie Allen single?

As we haven't heard any updates and he's definitely still a clichéd footballer in his 20s, we're saying yes (he certainly hasn't gone public with a new girlfriend since splitting with Danica); so whack on your swimsuits and slide into those DMs.

How old is Jamie Allen?

Jamie was born on 25 May 1995, making him 27 years old.

Who does Jamie Allen play football for?

Jamie plays for AFC Telford United, who are based in Shropshire.

What is Jamie Allen's height?

Jamie is 5ft9.

Does Jamie Allen have Instagram?

Of course. You can follow his antics at @jamie_allen12.
