The new series of Love Island is finally upon us and, frankly, we couldn’t be any more excited if we tried.

We've just watched the first 12 Islanders – like Ciaran Davies, Mimii Ngulube and Munveer Jabbal – walk into the Love Island 2024 villa, there was a huge twist when TOWIE icon Joey Essex entered the villa as the first bombshell – what the actual f*ck?

Now, the second bombshell has been revealed and she's gorgeous. Say hello to Uma Jammeh.

Uma is a PrettyLittleThing model from London, who is being sent into the villa to spice things up by producers and her arrival was accidentally leaked by ITV last week. Awkward...

An advert released by the channel apparently teased Uma being a part of the line-up of Islanders and seeing as she wasn’t announced alongside the likes of Samantha Kenny and Ronnie Vint last week, fans took that to mean she’ll be one of the first bombshells.

Winter Love Island 2023 star Samie Elishi, who is close pals with Uma, also seemingly confirmed she would be entering the villa on Snapchat.

When one of her followers asked if she’s going back into the villa, Samie replied, “Deffo not this! Hahaha but one of my friends is going on this year.”

She added, “Super F**KIN excited for her!!!!”

It’s not known how Samie and Uma know each other, but they both follow each other on social media and Samie regularly comments on Uma’s pics.

Uma’s Instagram account definitely gives Islander, so she’ll fit right in.
