What does Jamie look for in a girl, then?

Jamie has admitted he likes "having fun" when it comes to girls, but that he is looking to settle down. He says "I like girls to be confident with themselves, intellectual, share the same interests." That’s why him and Camilla bonded... they both LOVE books.

He also said, "I don’t like materialistic girls because that’s the opposite to me." Is he aware he is literally describing Camilla to a T? Even though he took Amber and Tyla on a date first, it seemed he saved the best till last as the sparks immediately started flying with Camilla.

Who was Jamie Jewitt's girlfriend before Love Island?

Jamie said he’s split up with his ex about six months before going into the villa. They were together for a year and a half. In an exclusive interview, one ex-flame, Georgia Leigh reveals all as she says “He is so lovely, girls throw themselves at him, but he cheats on all his girlfriends. He’s a love rat and will admit it himself.

"He loves women and can’t help himself". Ouch. Yet on social media, Jamie’s own mother claimed they "never dated" and Georgia called her before the article was released admitting her words had been "twisted."

He also apparently dated TOWIE star Jess Wright and there's even been reports that he auditioned for TOWIE.
