After just a few days in the Love Island 2023 villa, Zara Lackenby-Brown has already set her sights on a potential new romance.

Having chosen Tom, 23, in the recoupling ceremony, the other day Zara enjoyed a bit of a flirt with Shaq Muhammad, 24, bonding over the fact that they’re both from London.

‘I am yeah, I think we get on really well,’ she replies, as Aaron agrees by stating: ‘Yeah I think so too.’
