Catherine’s Love Island Intro
For her introduction into Love Island, Catherine said:
“I do not look this glam at work. If someone saw me now, they would be like what, this is not the same person that showed me the shop.
“My name is Catherine, I am 23, I am from Dublin and am a Commercial Real Estate Agent.
So I basically been single forever, it’s quite bad, all I do is situationships. When I flirt, I just have to give people the eyes, open my mouth say a few words, and they are like o my God, where are you from and then yah its done.
Like I have had people say to me just send me voice notes of you speaking and am like “ok” [laughs]
In the Love Island villa, I will be fierce, I will be confident, I will be funny, I will be myself, you will love me”
