I won Love Island and I know who's playing a game to get to the final and win, says Sanam Harrinanan | The Sun

LOVE Island winner Sanam Harrinanan has given her verdict on this year's contestants and revealed who she thinks is "playing a game".

Sanam – who found love with PE teacher Kai Fagan earlier this year on the ITV2 dating show – admitted that she is sceptical about hunky basketball player Zachariah Noble after watching him jump from girl to girl.

This week Casa Amor opened for business, as the couples face their biggest challenge yet.

A new batch of sexy singletons arrived in the villa, which also saw the shock return of blonde bombshell Molly Marsh.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Sanam spilled the beans on who she thinks is playing a game.

She said: "Based on what I've been reading and what I've gathered, it seems as though Zachariah may be playing a game possibly because he keeps going from girl to girl to girl.

"I think he came in had his eye on one girl and every time he's recoupled it's been another girl.

"So it's making me think are you in in for the right reasons.

"Are you playing a game? Or are you just playing the field? But that is playing a game."

Sanam praised the return of season two beauty Kady McDermott, saying she is the "spice" that the villa was missing.

"Kady's comback was a bit of a shock – I remember watching her on season two," the social worker said.

"She is stunning, she's entertaining to watch, she brought the drama and I think she's going to keep adding some extra spice.

"It's already spicy as it is. I don't know if she's going to find love though but she has been entertaining to watch."

Speaking about who's head will be turned in Casa Amor, Sanam laughed: "I think everyone's heads are turning right now.

"The only couple that I think are really cute at the moment are Ella and Tyrique.

"But you never know Casa Amor always brings more drama."

Sanam said she is happier than ever with beau Kai and looking forward to the future.

She said: "It's going strong, we have a holiday coming up in August and then heading to spend time with his family for his birthday.

"He's in Manchester and I'm in Bedford – the distance is really easy.

"We've definitely spoken about moving in but we're very level-headedpeople and want to make sure the timing is right and when we can financially afford it. We're not in a rush, we see each other other a lot."

Sanam has teamed up with You Can Adopt and adoption agencies across England have launched a new drive to find resilient parents for the children waiting the longest for permanent homes, and showcase the support available for them.

The TV favourite said: "Previously before Love Island I was a post-adoption support social worker, so I worked in that role for under two years.

"It's something that I've really been passionate about and wanted to get involved, this campaign is amazing as it's bringing attention to the areas that aren't spoken about within adoption."

"It's to raise awareness around the children who wait the longest to be adopted and to encourage more prospective adoptions to consider those children to be adopted. The campaign speaks a lot about support services that are available."

She went on: "When I was younger I always said I wanted to adopt, if I am in a position to adopt then I definitely will. It's even about doing what you can for a child – each child needs that platform in their life. It's really upsetting that you hear some children stay in care all their life."

Over half of children (59 per cent) are waiting for permanent homes come from certain groups where it takes an average of eight months longer to be adopted.

This includes children aged five or over, those with additional and/or complex needs, brother and sister groups, and those from Black and mixed heritage backgrounds 

The campaign comes as new research reveals that over a third (39%) of parents found support from other parents invaluable when raising their child.  

The new campaign aims to reach potential parents for children from certain groups that repeatedly wait longest to be adopted and sees a series of new films released featuring real life stories from those who have adopted and fostered children, and others who have been adopted themselves.

The films spotlight the various means of support available throughout the adoption journey from regional and voluntary adoption agencies, social care workers, charities, employers, friends, relatives, peers, and more.
