If there’s one thing that was missing from Love Island’s All Stars spin-off series, it was Danica Taylor and her HR realness.

The Love Island 2021 star was heavily rumoured to enter the South African villa as a bombshell after failing to find love on her original series, but we sadly never saw her slo-mo walk through those doors.

She later took to social media to reveal that she was, in fact, flown out to Cape Town and spent four days in a holding villa before producers decided not to send her into the villa. Honestly, we were robbed of seeing Danica back on our screens.

But it’s onwards and upwards for the reality TV queen as she’s been working on an exciting new venture.

Danica recently shared a GIF of herself in a variety of bikinis with the caption, “Something in this video is coming very soon FYI, you thought I been playing hahaha.”

While the teasing caption didn’t shed any light on what she’s been up to, one of Danica’s followers guessed that she’d been working on a bikini brand and it appears they hit the nail on the head.

Eagle-eyed fans pointed out that Danica had recently launched an Instagram page for a new bikini brand called Soul Sisters Swim which, you guessed it, she co-founded with her sister, Chantelle.

The brand’s page doesn’t give away much, simply that their launch is “coming soon”.

Love Island viewers will remember that Danica entered the villa as a bombshell three years ago and coupled with Luca Bish, who it’s fair to say wasn’t too impressed with having to be separated from Gemma Owen.

Last year, Danica opened up about how Luca treated her in the villa and said, “It’s really hard because I actually really like Luca’s sister. Luca’s sister is really nice but Luca treated me like an absolute see you next Tuesday and I don’t really have anything too nice to say about that situation. I don’t think he’s a bad person, but I think the way that he treated me was absolutely disgusting.”

Speaking on Toby Aromolaran’s Fancy A Chat? podcast, she added, “What’s upsetting is why did nobody tell him how bad it was? Why did he let me sleep in the bed alone? I was a new bombshell and that man wouldn’t even be this close to me and turn his back.”
