How old is Mary Bedford?

Mary is 22 years old.

Where is she from?

She's from Wakefield.

What does she do for a living?

Mary is a model. Talking about her job, she says: "I shoot for loads of different brands. It's literally the best job ever. I've been doing it full time for two years."

What does she think she will bring to the villa?

"I'm really a positive person all the time, bubbly. I think I'll spice things up. I think I will step on a few toes which will be interesting.

"I hate boring people. I can speak to anyone. The whole time I'll be chewing someone's ear off. That's my coping mechanism, I just talk."

Who have you got your eye on in the Villa?

"Liam. He's just beautiful. He's 6ft6 for a start, he seems really old-school, like a gentleman. And he's basically the same age as me.

"He's perfect. Other than that, Teddy or Toby."

When asked how she's going to go about getting the boy she wants, Mary said: "I'm just going to get in there, see how Liam actually is feeling about Millie really and then reassess. I'm definitely not one to lay it on thick. 

"I'll just do a bit of flirting and see how it goes. That's the whole aim isn't it? If I go in there and I really like Liam I'll have to step on Millie's toes. If all the boys are coupled up you will be stepping on toes. 

"If I could get away with not having a conversation I probably would as I hate confrontation, but if I need to I would."

Love Island 2021 airs Sunday-Friday at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
