The breathtaking brunette, 21, comes with some heavyweight credentials in the realm of attracting positive attention, as she was crowned Miss Newcastle 2018.
And the part-time model and carer could well be seen ruffling feathers after descending down the grand staircase into the South African villa, as she already has her eye on Connagh Howard, Callum Jones, and Mike Boateng.

Bombshell: Love Island is set to gain a stunning new bombshell during Sunday night’s episode, with the arrival of ‘fearless’ beauty queen Rebecca Gormley
She’s set to face stiff competition in her bid to land any one of the three men, as Callum was seen recoupling with outspoken Shaugnha Phillips on Friday, while Mike has been enjoying a fledgling romance with Leanne Amaning.
Meanwhile, fellow bombshell Connagh was responsible for one of the biggest shocks of the series thus far, when he opted to ‘steal’ Sophie Piper from Connor Durman during Friday night’s dramatic recoupling.
However, it would appear that Rebecca is up for the challenge, as she’s not short on confidence, rating herself an ‘8.5 maybe nine’ out of 10 in the looks department, while assuring that she’s ‘fun, loud, outgoing, fearless, and spontaneous’.

The Geordie beauty appears keen on landing herself a man who also has a commanding presence, saying: ‘I like a “Jack the lad”. He’s got to be the centre of attention easy to get along with, and someone who gets involved with the chat.’
Rebecca, who has assured that she’ll go ‘as far as [she] needs to go’ to land the man of her choice, has revealed that her turnoffs include men with long nails.
As for her strategy with luring one of the men in the villa, she explained: ‘I need to chat to them. I haven’t seen enough of them to know how I’m going to approach it.
‘I like funny guys, so I’m thinking making the guy laugh is a tick in the box. But no smooth moves, I’ll just be myself.’
