Love Island bombshell Uma Jammeh caused a stir when she entered the Mallorca villa on Wednesday night, but it looks like she’d already locked lips with one contestant.

The 23-year-old locked lips with all the boys after she arrived, before choosing to take footballer Ayo to the hideaway. It looks like the kiss may have seemed familiar to Ronnie Vint, as the pair later revealed it wasn’t the first time.

Uma told the girls that she’d kissed Ronnie four years ago while at work, before he took her for a villa tour.

“So, where do we know each other from? I’m pretty sure it was you but do you remember the Euros like four years ago at Ballie Ballerson,” Uma questioned.

“For the final? Yeah it was! Nothing happened though, did it?” a shocked Ronnie replied.

The pair may have been drowning their sorrows that night, as they vaguely recalled locking lips. Of course, the moment sparked discussion between shocked fans on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“All of us thinking that Uma and Ayo might have known each other beforehand BUT IT’S ACTUALLY UMA AND RONNIE??? RONNIE???” one shocked fan tweeted.

“PAUSE UMA AND RONNIE HAVE HISTORY?????” another exclaimed.

A third penned: “WAIT UMA AND RONNIE DID WHAT 4 YEARS AGO????????”

“Uma knows Ronnie???? I need someone to pull up Ronnie’s past real quick,” a fourth tweeted.

Despite applications being open for the whole of the UK public, every year at least two Islanders seem to have a connection. Last year, Ella Barnes revealed she ‘had a past’ with Islander Tyrique, which caused a bit of a ‘moment’ between herself and ‘other Ella’.

Avid Love Island fans will remember the ‘feud’ between Olivia and Zara in the 2023 Winter Love Island. Fans later found out that the pair had co-starred in a 2019 music video together.

New bombshell Uma still remains single until the next recoupling, but it doesn’t look like she’ll be short of options. Ayo seemed like the first to catch her eye as she took him to the hideaway, although she did whisper in Joey’s ear that she’d ‘see him later.’

Joey Essex entered the villa as a bombshell on Monday night, choosing to couple up with Samantha 24 hours later. Unfortunately, his decision resulted in Sam Taylor being sent home.

Despite the TOWIE star claiming he only had eyes for Samantha, it looks like Uma may have turned his head.
