Love Island star Rebecca Gormley’s birth certificate has confirmed her age after viewers of the show accused her of lying.
The stunning model has shaken things up in the villa already, after sharing a kiss with Connagh and expressing an interest in Callum.
However, after she entered the South African villa as a bombshell earlier this week, the brunette beauty left viewers at home “doubting” her age.

“But she really is just 21 and although she's mature for her age she also loves to be silly and have a good time.”
Rebecca addressed her age in the villa earlier this week, after Connor expressed his shock that she’s 21.
He said: “What? Shut up!”
She replied: “Everyone always sounds so surprised! How old did you think I was?"
Connor then replied: "No, I just thought you were a little bit older!"

Other viewers took to Twitter, with one writing: “Wow! Can’t believe Rebecca is 21.”
A second added: “I’m still in shock about Rebecca’s real age. I want to see her passport. This doesn’t make sense.”
Ahead of her arrival, Rebecca described her ideal man as a “Jack the lad” character, saying: “He’s got to be the centre of attention easy to get along with, and someone who gets involved with the chat.”
She also revealed that she’s interested in Connagh, Callum and Mike.
