Love Island’s Sherif predicted Anna was waiting for a 7ft basketball player in episode one


LOVE Island’s Sherif predicted Anna was waiting for a 7ft basketball in the very first episode of the series.

His remark has now come true because the pharmacist has moved on with basketball player Ovie Soko who is not far off 7ft.

During the first coupling up of the series Anna had made a point about wanting a tall man, and her type didn’t go unnoticed by Sherif.

Just moments after they coupled up for the first time he turned to her and said: “So what’s up with you then? What kind of 7ft basketball player are you waiting for?”

Sherif later got booted off the show for making a very rude joke about booting Molly-Mae in the groin during a playfight.

Anna then coupled up with Jordan, who she instantly connected with and seemed very happy with – that was until she moved to Casa Amor.

The 28-year-old’s head was immediately turned on Friday as the professional basketball player arrived in the new villa with five other newbies.

And in a first look at tonight’s episode, Anna and Ovie are seen locking lips in the garden.

She confided in the Beach Hut that Ovie, 28, had immediately caught her eye and joked: “Jordan Who?”

Before leaving the main villa, Anna had visited the Beach Hut to voice her concerns.

She said: “I am so nervous about Jordan. Is he going to crack on with other girls? Should I be doing the same?”

She later pondered: “I think Casa Amor is a huge test for me and Jordan, this is the time where I’m going to find out whether he does really like me because he’s not very vocal about it.”

But her thought of model Jordan soon vanished once she sets eyes on Ovie, who entered Casa Amor alongside Dennon, Dan, Marvin, Stevie and George.

There’s an instant attraction from Anna, who excitedly revealed: “When the boys came out, the first thing that I thought was, ‘Woah!’ Ovie is so tall and handsome.

“Literally I was just starting at him.”
