This Essex face is back and ready to cause a stir

Love Island is about to have a proper reality show mash-up as a star of TOWIE is set to head into the villa!

Yep, Friday night’s show will see the arrival of a new Islander and she’s none other than George Harrison, who you might recognise from her stint in The Only Way Is Essex back in 2014.


Love Island viewers struggle to watch show for THIS dramatic reason

The 22-year-old PA was introduced as Fran Parman’s BFF during an Ibiza special and soon brought the drama when she enjoyed flirtations with Lewis Bloor and Tom Pearce.

In fact it turned into a bit of a love triangle, with Tom trying to woo George despite it being revealed that she might not be over Lewis following their fling.

She had, after all, claimed to have known Lewis since she was 14 so there was clearly some backstory there.

‘Me and Lew have got a lot of history and I’m never going to rule him out, I’m just single,’ George told her pals during one episode. Remember this?

In fact the blonde had history with several TOWIE stars, having been friends with Georgia Kousoulou for years since they were ‘playing out’ down the road together as kids. Awww.

During her stint on the show George made a go of things with Tom but sadly their romance didn’t last – and she was dropped after just one series.

The reality star doesn’t seem to have let this get her down though as a quick scroll through her Instagram suggests she’s been having lots of fun, having posted various bikini snaps from holidays as well as photos with best pal Fran.

Me and @franparman 😜

Now George is heading to the Love Island villa and admits that her Essex past is her ‘claim to fame’.

‘I was previously on TOWIE but you’d have to have a keen eye to catch me – I was only part of one series,’ she says.

It sounds like George is ready to cause a stir too, having described herself as ‘very confident’, ‘very funny’ and ‘resilient’.

‘I’m single, I want to meet someone and I can’t think of anywhere better to try and do that than on a hot island with loads of good looking, young people,’ the Essex girl explains.

Ooh, this could be interesting!
