We don’t mean to be dramatic, but we think this series of Love Island might be the best thing to ever happen to us.

After what has surely been the longest, bitterest winter of all time with Beasts From The Easts blowing us away at all angles at every time of the day, we need some sun and drama in our lives.

And what better what to enjoy said sun and excitement than watching it on our TV screens from the comfort of our sofa?

One of the most heavily rumoured contestants to imminently dramatically enter the villa is Taylor Ward off of Real Housewives of Cheshire. And she's now dropped a huge hint she's going on the show.

Speaking to OK! magazine, she said: "Everyone seems really nice and they are a good-looking bunch, but I don't really have a type. It depends on someone's personality for me so I would have to judge in there."

She also revealed she wouldn't have se on TV, saying: "My dad says if I have sex on TV then I'd have to move country, so I've ruled that one out. I just don't see why anyone would do it anyway. At the end of the day, if you like someone you can wait."

Who is Taylor Ward?

Taylor is the daughter of Real Housewives of Cheshire’s Dawn Ward – so she’s practiced in the art of reality telly.

She’s appeared on the show alongside her mum, so that’s probably where you recognised her from, if you’re wondering…

What’s Taylor Ward’s age?

She’s 20 years old.

Does she have a job?

Taylor is currently studying for a fashion degree in London.

What happened with Taylor Ward and Sam Reece?

Taylor’s relationship with Sam Reece (of Stephanie Davis fame…) was a minor plotline of Real Housewives Of Cheshire.

We aren’t exactly sure what happened between the two, but Taylor announced their split on Twitter in September 2016.

She wrote: "Unfortunately me and @SamReece have called an end to our relationship. However moving forward, we will remain good friends."

Sam then followed it up with: "Unfortunately me and @taylorward16 have called an end to our relationship.. However moving forward, we will remain good friends."

Is Taylor Ward going to be a Love Island 2018 contestant? Why is she rumoured?

Producers have reportedly lined Taylor up as a series latecomer. A source told The Sun: "Bosses really enjoyed meeting Taylor; she's confident and definitely has all the qualities of a perfect islander.

"She understands the world of reality TV already with her mum being one of the stars of the Real Housewives of Cheshire but she’s still a normal girl who’s looking for love."

They added: "The show has been auditioning hundreds of possible contestants from all around the UK and they're yet to make a decision on who will make the final line-up.

"Taylor is one of many to make the shortlist but is keeping her fingers crossed she makes it on the programme."
