Winter Love Island finally returned to our screens earlier this month after three years away and while we're enjoying the the love dramas of this year's Islanders it doesn't mean we've forgotten about the contestants of the first ever winter edition of the show back in 2020.

Although she had a fairly short stint on the show, we'll never forget Leanne Amaning for her iconic "Go away. Why are you so obsessed with me?" comments about Mike Boateng.

Although she's mostly stayed out of the spotlight since leaving the villa, Leanne is set to make a big comeback as she's just announced a surprising new venture.

When was Leanne Amaning on Love Island?

Leanne entered the villa on day one in January 2020 and coupled up with Mike Boateng. Things seemed to be going well, but there was no going back when Leanne infamously admitted she'd caught "the ick".

After calling things off with Mike, Leanne was dumped from the villa when he chose to couple up with Sophie Piper.

Leanne has since admitted she wasn't surprised by Mike's decision but has said he's a "game player".

She 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.”
