Love Island star Tanyel attracted attention of professional footballer before entering villa



Love Island star Tanyel Revan was turning down the advances of a professional footballer before continuing her trend inside the South African villa.

The 26-year-old hairstylist from North London has been turning heads she arrived as one of the original 10 singletons to walk into the plush Cape Town villa, where she was originally coupled up with Kai Fagan.

And it appears Tanyel was attracting the attention of a Tottenham and England youth player before jetting off for the popular ITV2 reality dating show which began earlier this week.

Spurs and England Under-19s midfielder Nile John is believed to be one of more than 49,000 followers which Tanyel has on her Instagram account, with the 19-year-old liking several of her alluring photos.

Tanyel has a number of asset-flaunting snaps from nights out, with Nile particularly enjoying her white heels, pink skirt and skimpy long-sleeved blue top combination in Manchester in May.

However, the midfielder, who is a regular fixture in the Spurs Under-23s squad, was unable to score the stunning hairstylist.

A source told The Sun on Sunday : "For those who know her it’s no surprise Tanyel is getting a lot of attention in the villa.

"She’s a real flirt. She’s had famous faces like her pictures, including Nile John. But she’d probably eat him for breakfast."

Tanyel caused chaos in the Love Island villa during Friday's episode when she chose to couple up with Ron Hall, leaving Lana Jenkins in tears in what was the first recoupling of the 2023 winter series.

Earlier in the episode, Ron - who had been flirting with Tanyel and bombshell Zara Deniz Lackenby-Brown - finally decided he wanted to give all his focus to Lana and the pair shared a sweet kiss on the terrace.

However, with Tanyel picking Ron before she stepped up at the fire pit, Lana was backed into a corner and chose to recouple with Will Young which meant that bombshell Islander David Salako was sent packing.

Tanyel made the decision after having to choose between Will, Ron and David. Lana then wiped tears from her eyes after Tanyel made her decision.

"I've decided to couple up with this boy because I feel like we get on really well," Tanyel said.

"I feel like he's charismatic, I feel like he's got banter, and I'd like to get to know him on a deeper level."

Her former partner Kai was snapped up by Anna-May Robey, Zara chose to recouple with semi-professional footballer Tom Clare. Haris Namani was chosen by Olivia Hawkins and Tanya Manhenga selected Shaq Muhammad.
