We're not sure any other Islander has ever done this

While her time in the villa was brief, Afia Tonkmor has more than managed to keep the hype going outside the show.

She branded Indiyah Polack and Dami Hope 'weird' after Amber Beckford and Ikenna Ekwonna were dumped, she called out 'actress Ekin-Su following the Jay drama and she opened up about those Remi recoupling rumours.

In an exclusive chat on heat's Under the Duvet, she revealed she was planning a big change in her life following her exit from the villa.

She's moving to Bali and it turns out she already had this plan in place before going into the villa.

"I was always going to move to Bali and then [Love Island] came about," she admitted

Explaining why she's moving abroad the Love Island 2022 bombshell said, “I feel like the UK right now is just not my vibe at this present moment in time.”

How exciting! We can’t wait to see all her Insta pics and updates on this new adventure.

Afia is definitely taking a slightly different route to Islanders in the past, as most Love Island stars relocate to London and build their social media following.

Saying that, Bali does have a reputation for attracting influencers so we’re sure the move could lead to big things for Afia.

Before her Love Island 2022 stint it came to light that Afia had an interesting connection to a former – and hugely popular – former Islander.

Ooo, we love an unexpected Love Island crossover. Still keeping our fingers crossed for that Love Island All Stars series, ITV2.

Thanks to our journalistic sleuthing (really just too much time browsing Instagram Stories), we discovered that Afia, who entered the Love Island villa alongside Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu on day three, has a connection with none other than Love Island Season 3 queen, Montana Brown.

Afia's Instagram Story highlights confirm that she models for Montana's epic swimwear brand, Swim Society.

Afia's highlights also show polaroid images of her wearing one of Montana's pieces, as well as snaps of the pair being generally quite iconic together.

Here's where the trouble element comes in. If Montana Brown hasn't learned her lesson from when she snuck a bunch of Swim Society cozzies into mate Arabella Chi's Love Island suitcase (which is against the rules) and tried the same trick with Afia, her Love Island dream could have been over before it's over begun.

Back in 2019, chatting on the heat's Under the Duvet, Montana spilled, "Someone I know is going into Love Island and I've just shoved loads of Swim Society [swimwear] in there."

Hard relate, but a fitting personality trait for an Islander, really. We have all the faith in this one.

Afia Tonkmor's most memorable dating story...

In Afia's own words, "I am vegan and one of the boys that I went out with took me to Meat & Liquor. I don’t even drink and I am really health conscious, I don’t mind a little drink here and there but I don’t want to be sitting there with you eating meat and drinking liquor.
