Samantha first interview since Love Island 2024

Samantha goes IN on ‘slimy’ and ‘not nice’ Grace during first interview after Love Island

She said she wouldn’t be allowed to say on national TV the words she has for Grace

Dumped Islander Samantha Kenny has gone in on her fellow cast member Grace Jackson in her first interview since being dumped from the Love Island 2024 villa.

Obviously, Samantha and Grace were never going to be best mates – Samantha had been happily coupled up with Joey Essex in the villa, before Grace walked in and it was revealed she dated Joey before the show. Joey then swiftly forgot who Samantha was, and was cracking on with Grace again.

This all ended with Samantha being left single, and this week she appeared on Aftersun to talk about her dumping. Samantha was shown an unaired clip of new boy Konnor chatting to Grace. He said he was interested in her, and she was then giving him a hug and saying he’s the “nicest guy” in the villa.

Samantha was asked by Maya Jama what she thought of the chat as the host said: “It seems like Grace is quite open.” Samantha replied by calling Grace “slimy” and “not nice” and said she can’t actually say on national TV how she would like to describe Grace.

“She’s just not a very nice girl, is she?” Samantha said. “I can’t say on national television. But, I’ve got home and I’ve seen things and I just think she’s a bit of a slime ball if I’m being completely honest with you. She’s a slimy girl.

“From what I’ve seen, the smirking and the laughing. I stood around that fire pit on my own and they [Joey and Grace] were laughing at me. Slimy, Slimy.”
