Another year of Love Island is almost over and it's safe to say the girls have definitely been carrying this season. From their incredible fashion sense to their ability to shake up the villa in a second, the pick of girls this year has been great.

But before we get to the Love Island 2021 final, let’s find out more about one of the girls who helped make this series memorable.

So, here's everything you need to know about the fashionable Millie Court...

Who is Millie Court?

Competitive Millie Court entered the villa on day nine along with Lucinda Strafford as two of the Love Island latecomers sent to shake up the villa. Blonde bombshell Millie admitted: “I definitely am competitive. I’m the worst competitive person as well because I’m a sulker if I don’t win.” As well as being competitive she described herself as “a very spontaneous and adventurous person” and as a person who’s always up for doing something new and challenging herself.

Where is she from?

Millie is from Essex.

How old is Millie?

Millie is 24 years old, so there is a three year age gap between her and Liam, 21, who she is currently coupled up with. 

What is Millie’s job?

She is a fashion buyer’s administrator at ASOS. She graduated with a 2:1 in Fashion Buying and Brand Management from Ravensbourne University in 2018. 

Millie was previously a sales assistant at Superdry and did internships at the Daily Mirror, Bodas lingerie and This Old Thing in London

She said: “I love my job. It's all involved with fashion. I studied fashion at university." This can definitely be seen on her instagram where she’s shared lots of pics of herself in glamorous outfits.

Why did Millie want to take part in Love Island?

When asking why she signed up, Millie said she’d been single for a year and was looking to find “The One”.  

Millie said: “I’ve been single for over a year now. I’m ready to find ‘The One’. I’m a very spontaneous and adventurous person. I’m always up for doing something new and challenging myself. I’ve never done anything like this before. I just want to throw myself into it and have fun with it.”

Who did Millie have her eye on when she first entered the villa?

When Millie first entered the villa she had her eye on three guys—Brad McClelland, Liam Reardon and Toby Aromolaran. She said “Liam is the type of guy that I normally go for, I love how tall he is. Toby has a cute personality and I think he’ll make me laugh. Brad has stunning blue eyes and an amazing body and a banging tan!”

What’s Millie's type on paper?

She described her type as “Looks wise, it's the classic tall, dark and handsome. But people who I've been with in the past haven't been that. I say this but genuinely deep down it’s whether I’ve got a connection with them or not. I’m looking for someone that I can fully vibe with and we have the same energy.

“I really want someone who can make me laugh and is funny. Someone who matches me and not just because they’re good-looking. Most boys who are really good-looking are boring!” 

Who is Millie currently coupled up with?

Millie is currently coupled up with Liam Reardon and has been with him since their first date. It’s fair to say they have had their challenges while in the villa, with Liam cheating on Millie with Casa Amor contestant Lillie Haynes and playing down his actions, which later came to light after Millie had a tense conversation with Lillie who revealed all the intimate details. However, after Liam did some serious grovelling the couple got back together and are now close to saying the L word, which has led them to being among the Love Island 2021 finalists.
