Love Island: Meet the Girls – Anna-May Robey

Love Island Meet the Girls – Anna-May Robey

Love Island returned to ITV2 on Monday 16 January and it’s time to meet the contestants. Anna-May Robey is 20 from Swansea, she is a payroll administrator

Why Love Island and why now?
I want a boyfriend, I want to find someone who makes me laugh. I’ve been single for quite a while, my mother is bugging me, she’s like, ‘You need to find a boyfriend.’ I’m just excited to try something new and I think going on Love Island is a good way to meet someone.

What do you think you’ll bring to the Villa?
I will bring fun, I’m always up for a laugh, if someone tells me to go and dive in the pool I will probably do it. I’ll bring energy to the Villa, I’ll get everyone up playing games! I‘m also not afraid to get in someone’s way; if I like someone, I’ll let them know.

What’s your ‘elevator pitch’ for why someone should want to date you?
I’m funny, energetic, spontaneous.

Why would you say you’re single?
I’m single because I’m fussy and I get the ick easily. I also go for the same type of guy so I need to broaden my horizons, so I hope to do that in the Villa.

How would friends/family describe you?
Energetic. I’m always running around singing and screaming. My parents are always like, ‘Shut up!’ I work from home all day so I don’t really speak to people in person for two or three days a week, so when my father comes home, he’ll want to sit down and chill out, and I’m there chewing his ear off! I would definitely say I am a chatterbox.

Best / worst date story?
I went on a date once and I never saw him again. We went for food and shared a bottle of wine. As I was speaking to him he fell asleep! I had to clink his wine glass to wake him up.

What gives you the ‘ick’?
I don’t like people who brag or who are really materialistic. Another thing is watching a boy get his haircut and the barber pushing up the seat, you know the pumping thing? I used to go to the barber with my ex and I used to sit there and every time the barber would do it, I would have to look away.

Do you fall in love quickly?
Quickly – and I become obsessed with someone when they don’t like me. But, when they start giving me the attention that I want I’m not interested anymore.

Music is a big part of Love Island – who do you have on repeat and why?
I would say anything by Coldplay, I love Coldplay, I absolutely love them, I’d probably listen to Coldplay forever.

Who is your celebrity crush?
I like a bit of Anthony Joshua but I wouldn’t say no to Jamie Dornan as well.

Who are your dream dinner party guests?
Ricky Gervais, Anthony Joshua and Olly Murs.

If money was no object, what would be your ideal first date?
I would take him to Alcatraz, I love stuff like that. I’d take him to San Francisco and to the world’s most famous jail. I think it would be quite interesting, it would give us something to talk about!

Love Island returned to ITV2 and ITVX on Monday 16 January 2023.
