Tanyel Revan is one of the first ten islanders heading into the villa for the new season of Love Island.

Winter Love Island 2023 is the first of a double helping of the hit ITV dating show coming to ITV2 and ITVX this year. The returning winter spin-off will see another batch of islanders heading to a  new villa in South Africa to try to find their perfect partners with the help of Love Island's new host, Maya Jama.

Asked why she signed up for Love Island, Tanyel said: "I feel like the experience will be amazing! I do feel like I am ready to meet someone and push myself out of my comfort zone to meet someone who's not my typical ‘bad boy’ type."
