Jess explained before heading into the villa that she thinks she's single because: "I don’t underestimate the fact that I’m hard work. I know what I want and I'm not easily pleased. When you’re a loud, outgoing woman, sometimes it can intimidate men - men don’t always want that.

"I think that can sometimes put people off me because I am quite loud and you can hear me before you see me. Some men love that though."

Jess went on to say that the main things that will catch her eye are nice teeth, a family orientated man and a tall man!

The model went on to say that what makes him a catch is how respectful he is.

"I think people take to that and once you show who you are to somebody you get it back tenfold," said Ayo, "The way I am gives off a good enough energy for people to feel comfortable around me."
