Hayley says she doesn’t have much experience in relationships as she’s only ever had one boyfriend before:

“I’ve only been in one relationship, and only slept with one guy. I was with him for five years. We got together at such a young age, when I was 16. You just grow up and grow apart. It’s still quite raw.”

What does she consider as her best assets?

She considers her dimples as a big attribute, but also her winning personality: “My dimples are very unique and that’s a sign of beauty. I’m quite a loving person, and I always think about other people and their feelings. I’m not a selfish person, I’d say I’m very caring. I’m confident within myself."

Hayley says she’s looking for a guy on Love Island who has the whole package:

“I want someone with a nice personality who knows how to treat a girl. I want the package, not just someone with good looks. If he can make me laugh, that’s a big thing.”
