Who is Tasha Ghouri on Love Island 2022? First-ever deaf contestant | The Sun

TASHA Ghouri is one of Love Island's 2022 contestants – and she's the first deaf star to appear on the dating show.

But who is she, and who else is in the Love Island cast? Here's everything you need to know.

Who is Tasha Ghouri?

Tasha Ghouri is a 23-year-old dancer and model from Thirsk, North Yorkshire.

She has already represented the deaf community as an Asos model, with her cochlear implant visible in a campaign.

Speaking about why she is doing the ITV show, Tasha said: "My dating life has been a shambles.

"This is an opportunity for me to find ‘the one’ and have a great summer at the same time. I'm definitely ready for a relationship."

Asked what she will bring to the villa, Tasha continued: "[My friends and family] would definitely describe me as wild.

"I’m definitely a party animal. I love my prosecco and to have a dance – I’m always on the dance floor.

"I think they’d also say I’m inspirational because of my hearing and my cochlear implant. I inspire quite a lot of people because I’m really open about it."

The soon-to-be reality star also joked she would have no problem "stepping on toes" of other girls to "find her man".

In 2021, the ITV2 series included teacher Hugo Hammond, 25, who was born with a club foot and represented those with disabilities.

And previously Niall Aslam, 26, who appeared in the fourth series, suffered from autism spectrum disorder.

A show source said of Tasha taking part in Love Island: “Everyone is really excited about having Natasha on the show.

"It’s something really positive for youngsters to see. She looks amazing in a bikini, has a great bubbly personality and just happens to be deaf.

“She wears a cochlear implant which helps with her hearing loss.”

She entered the villa to find love and she's done just that – after coupling up with fellow island Andre Le Page.

The couple haven't had the easiest time in the villa – with both of them re-coupling with other love interests after Casa Amor.

But the pair found their way back to one another – and are now officially in a relationship after Tasha asked her Love Island beau to be her boyfriend.
