It sounds like 20-year-old Dubliner Lucy Plunkett is headed for the villa this month. The influencer was reportedly approached for the show via Instagram, where she already has a following of almost 13,000 fans. According to a friend who spoke to Dublin Live, Lucy is ‘very excited and can’t wait to represent Dublin.’
Who is Lucy Plunkett?
Lucy herself dropped a massive hint about her upcoming trip to Majorca this weekend by sharing a series of snaps of new bikinis and a selfie captioned ‘Ordering my last takeaway tonight, I’m emotional.’ The Love Island 2021 cast are expected to be flying out to Majorca very soon ahead of the show’s launch on 28 June.
In her Instagram bio, Lucy writes: 'My vibe right now is just living life’. Despite being only 20 years old, the savvy influencer also already has her own online clothing brand and store—Lu Le Label—where she sells co-ords, dresses and swimsuits perfect for Ibiza or Marbella.
Lucy Plunkett bringing the drama?
The influencer’s friend revealed:
Lucy is looking for a man who is loyal and isn’t too controlling. She’s very much a free spirit who beats to her own drum. I expect her to be herself. She sometimes may come across as mean or a b***h due to her honest nature but she is a girl's girl and is a sweetheart once you get to know her.
However, the anonymous pal warned that ‘if someone crosses her she won’t have a problem speaking her mind. She can be problematic.’ They revealed that Lucy has recently come out of a long-term relationship and is ready for another chance of finding love—this time in front of the nation.
