Yewande Biala, 23, had an emotional run on the ITV2 series of Love Island 2019, and has since spoken out about her short-lived experience on the show. The islander has now claimed there are only two “genuine” couples on the show amongst the “game-playing”. Speaking to ITV, the evictee has said her pals Michael Griffiths, 27, and Amber Gill, 21, are the real deal. Following her exit, Yewande divulged: “I think there are a couple of people in there playing a game – a lot of people aren’t there for the right reasons.
“I’d probably say there are only two genuine couples. Michael and Amber and Curtis and Amy.”
Professional dancer Curtis Pritchard, 23, is currently coupled up with air hostess Amy Hart, 27.
When asked who will go the distance outside, Yewande said: “Michael and Amber. I love the way it started because the minute I walked in and coupled up with Michael, he said ‘There’s something about Amber that I love so much.’
“I was friends with Amber and she was like ‘He’s not my type.’”
“Gradually you could see her getting nervous around him. The way it’s developed is so organic, which is the way it normally happens on the outside.”
She finished: “It’s so magical to watch it happen.”
As for the others, Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury, Tom Walker and Maura Higgins, Anton Danyluk and Lucie Donlan, Anna Vakili and Jordan Hames, paired up during tonight’s recoupling.
Yewande’s former flame Danny Williams chose to pick newcomer Arabella Chi which in turn, meant the scientist had to be dumped from the island.
It comes after the trio were embroiled in a love spat after Yewande confronted Danny about his true feelings for her.
In emotional scenes, the former islander was ready to quit Love Island after it emerged Danny had been getting to know Arabella on a more personal level behind Yewande’s back.
For days, Danny had been complaining that Yewande was not opening up to him enough or showing him any affection.
Despite her efforts, in the latest recoupling Danny chose model Arabella.
Asked whether she thinks the pairing will work, Yewande said: “Maybe. A bombshell coming in, it’s very hard and it’s difficult to know their intentions. I hate it when a bombshell comes in saying ‘I want to get to know everyone’, because that is a lie. You know who you’re going for.
“She [Arabella] knew she wanted Danny. I feel like if he does get to know her, it’s not going to work.
“There are so many factors – they’re so different, and the age gap. You have to be realistic. He’s just starting his life – he’s only 21. They are in two different phases of their lives. In the villa, it’s very easy to forget.”
Love Island continues tomorrow tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
