Who is Haris Namani on Love Island 2023?

Haris, 21, is a TV salesman from Doncaster who has yet to find love and is hoping to find ‘the one’ on the ITV show.

He considers himself a ‘unique guy’ who is confident, not awkward particularly when talking to girls, friendly and approachable and very respectful.

“Anyone who meets me, I don’t think they have anything bad to say about me,” he said.

“I don’t give them that bad impression to say, ‘Oh, I don’t want to speak to him again’.”

When asked how his friends and family would describe him, Haris said: “Very confident, funny, memorable as well. I like to be memorable. A lot of people like to do stuff with me. I’m not embarrassing.”

When asked why someone should want to date him, he said: “Young, inspiring, I have big ambitions in life. Good looking, funny active - I think I tick a lot of boxes. Enough for a girl to sit down and say, ‘He’s good’.”

Haris is good at any sport including tennis and ping pong and considers himself very competitive.

His ‘unusual skills’ are doing yoga, being flexible and if money was no object, his ideal first date would be to whisk a girl away to Mykonos, get food delivered to them in the pool, go on a jet ski and hire a boat out.
