Who is Taylor Ward? Rumoured to be Love Island’s newest girl who also has famous parents

Is Taylor Love Island’s next girl?

Taylor Ward, daughter of Real Housewives of Cheshire star Dawn Ward, has been heavily rumoured to be appearing on Love Island this summer, and has recently provided further hints she could enter the villa any day now.

Taylor told OK! Magazine that "everyone seems really nicebut I don't have a typeI would have to judge in there."

A source has also claimed show bosses "really enjoyed" meeting Taylor ahead of her arrival in the villa.

But who is Taylor Ward? Personally, I don't want to have to wait for Alex to slowly extract the information on an awkward date where you're not quite sure whether he's going to clumsily lean in and try and kiss her or coldly murder her and dump the body in the infinity pool.

Therefore, here's everything you need to know about Taylor Ward, who could be the next girl to enter the Love Island villa.

She's 20 years old and from Manchester

Born on 28th January 1998, Taylor lives with her family at Warford Hall in Cheshire, the £15 million stately home was bought by the Ward family in 2004 and they've spent 11 years refurbishing it, before putting it on the market.

Taylor has 119k followers on Instagram and works as a social media influencer and model

Whilst many islanders have to wait until they come out of the villa to start making Instagram money, Taylor has already got it sorted, shouting out brands fairly regularly on her profile.

Her mum is Dawn Ward, the reality TV matriarch who stars in the Real Housewives of Cheshire

Dawn is one of the main stars of the ITVBe series, reality TV seems to run in the family with Taylor following in her mum's footsteps.

The businesswoman and interior designer was one of the original cast members and is married to former professional footballer, Ashley Ward.

Taylor also regularly appears on the Real Housewives of Cheshire

In the clip below, Dawn says of her daughter: "When Taylor has something to say, whichever way she wants to say it, it just pops out," which bodes well should any big oily snakes (Adam we're looking at you) try and mess her around.

Taylor previously dated Sam Reece who appeared on Ex On The Beach

The 24-year-old male model from Sheffield has previously appeared on both Ex On The Beach and first Dates.

He originally rose to 'fame' when his girlfriend, Stephanie Davis, dumped him on national television when she appeared on Celebrity Big Brother 2016.

Her dad is Ashley Ward, a retired professional footballer

Taylor's dad is a former professional footballer, who scored 110 goals in a 16-year career, playing for clubs such as Manchester City, Derby, Blackburn and Sheffield United.

Taylor has three siblings, one of them is Darby, an aspiring singer

Taylor's older sister, Darby, is a 22-year-old singer who has recently released her debut single. Darby also boasts 105k Instagram followers.

Taylor and Darby also both DJ at club nights in Manchester

The pair have recently performed sets in Manchester clubs Mahiki and Club Arvina.

If she goes on Love Island, Taylor has vowed not have sex in the villa

She told OK!: "My dad says if I have sex on TV then I'd have to move country, so I've ruled that one out. I just don't see why anyone would do it anyway. At the end of the day, if you like someone you can wait."
