Love Island star Elma Pazar has admitted that she lied about her age to get on the popular ITV2 show.
The Essex native, who was voted out of the villa last week, has revealed that she’s actually 26, not 23.
After leaving the show, Elma spoke to Kem Cetinay and Arielle Free on the Love Island Morning After podcast, and confessed: “I lied about my age on Love Island.”
“I tell everyone I’m 23, it’s a real issue. I’m 26 but now everyone knows it because they said they couldn’t lie for me,” she said.
At present, Tom Walker, 29, is the oldest contestant in the villa – while Tommy, Molly and Amber are the youngest at 20-years-old.
The news comes after Elma admitted to fancying Joe Garratt, who was coupled up with Lucie Donlan in the villa before he was booted out last week.
She told The Sun Online: “He’s a southerner like me and he’s really nice. He has a certain banter, and you get on with some people more than others and I think I really got on with him.”
Love Island airs nightly in Ireland on Virgin Media Two at 9pm.
