Who is Sharon Gaffka and how old is she?

Sharon is 25 years old and hails from Oxford. She currently works as a civil servant for the Department of Transport, and says she applied for the show after it became a "running joke" between her friendship group.

"I’ve been a civil servant since I was 18," says Sharon of her career. "I’ve worked in lots of different departments. I’ve been doing Brexit policy for the last year, I did a stint during the Coronavirus pandemic in the Department of Health so I was helping deliver testing kits and managing the operations. It’s been an intense year!"

What has Sharon Gaffka said about Love Island 2021?

Sharon opened up about what she's looking for in a partner, saying, "I have this thing where if something doesn’t work out with one person, I’ll try and go for the other extreme to see if that works out.

"I tend to date someone who is taller than me, even though my last long-term partner, he was actually someone who was shorter than me. I’m quite an intellectual person so I want someone who can kind of match that."

When is Love Island 2021 on?

Love Island returns on Monday 28th June, 2021 at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub.
