AGE: 24 | FROM: Brighton | OCCUPATION: Make-up artists & hair stylist | PRONOUNS: She/Her

Abbie - I Kissed a girl

“What I loved most about the show was how comfortable I instantly felt around all the girls, in a judgement-free environment, allowing myself to be vulnerable in conversations around sexuality.”

Abbie resides in Brighton with her parents and older sister, where she runs her own salon. She adores the city’s inclusive and queer-friendly vibe. Coming out to her family at the age of 12, Abbie found unwavering support from her grandad, who became her biggest ally.

With her long blonde hair and feminine attire, Abbie often finds herself having to explain her sexuality as she feels it’s not immediately obvious that she’s a lesbian. Her dating history, as she puts it, has been “disastrous”, and now she’s on the lookout for a girlfriend who will treat her like the princess she is.

Abbie has a thing for sporty, masculine-presenting girls and jokingly dreams of becoming a WAG (Wife and Girlfriend of a sports player) someday. Her dating red flags include relationships that move too quickly and people who jump to conclusions.


AGE: 24 | FROM: Surrey, living in London | OCCUPATION: Social Media Manager | PRONOUNS: She/Her

Amy - I Kissed a girl

“We made Herstory! I can only imagine the sense of validation and belonging that me and my sisters would have felt had we had this kind of representation on our telly growing up (the closet was cramped in our house). From me, you can expect boots, boobs and a boatload of banter.”

Known for her vibrant red hair and her love for 90s fashion, Amy is funny, flamboyant, and often jokes that she’s “a gay man trapped in a lesbian’s body.”

Growing up in a conservative area of Surrey, Amy attended a private school where she was the lacrosse captain. While she appreciates the opportunities her upbringing afforded her, she found it tough to navigate feeling different in an environment where conformity was encouraged. Amy started grappling with her sexuality at the age of 13 but didn’t muster the confidence to come out to her family until she was 21. Interestingly, both of Amy’s sisters are also lesbians.

Amy describes herself as having a femme energy and is attracted to other femme girls. She humorously laments that “femme for femme” lesbians are becoming a rare breed and often feels overshadowed by more masculine-presenting girls.

Having been single for three years, Amy is starting to feel like she’s been left on the shelf. A hopeless romantic at heart, she dreams of finding her “princess” in the Masseria and living happily ever after.


AGE: 25 | FROM: Ballycastle, Northern Ireland | OCCUPATION: Support Worker / Aesthetics | PRONOUNS: She/Her

Cara - I kissed a girl

“Coming from a small town in Northern Ireland, the rare chance to be in an environment exclusively full of queer women was an opportunity of a lifetime.”

Cara is known for her infectious sense of humour and her adventurous spirit. Her friends often tease that life is never boring when Cara is around! Growing up on a council estate, Cara takes pride in her roots, and she’s always happy for people to know where she comes from. Her biggest supporters are her mum, along with her three brothers and two sisters.

Identifying as bisexual, Cara has had relationships with both men and women. She explains that being bi can sometimes make her feel like she’s caught in the middle. Some men see her as a novelty, while some queer women question if she’s “gay enough”.

Although she doesn’t have many lesbian friends, Cara is eager to learn the ins and outs of the wild world of lesbian dating. She admits that she can be guarded when it comes to relationships and hopes that her experience in the Masseria will help her lower her defences. When it comes to flirting, Cara confesses that if she’s interested in someone, she often finds it difficult to maintain eye contact.


AGE: 23 | FROM: Hemel Hempstead | OCCUPATION: Publishing Executive | PRONOUNS: She/Her

Demi - I kissed a girl

“I was able to be one hundred per cent unapologetically myself and I got to experience being part of a close-knit queer community.”

Demi affectionately refers to herself as a “baby gay”. While she’s had a few experiences with girls, she’s never been in a relationship.

Having graduated with a master’s degree in Gender, Media, and Culture, Demi now works as a publishing assistant. She resides in Hemel Hempstead with her family, who are of Nigerian heritage. Coming out wasn’t without its challenges for Demi; she shares a close bond with her mum, but her dad, being very traditional, struggled to accept her sexuality.

Describing herself as a “lover girl”, Demi is drawn to interesting people and values “vibes” over looks. She’s still navigating the chaotic world of queer dating and remains open-minded about discovering her “type”. Excited about the prospect of sharing a first kiss with a girl, she anticipates she might fumble it somehow. “I’ll probably trip or accidentally touch a boob, watch this space!” she jokes.


AGE: 22 | FROM: Glasgow | OCCUPATION: Drummer for Uninvited | PRONOUNS: She/Her

Fiorenza - I kissed a girl

“I’m very proud to be a part of the show, especially the first season for the girls! It should have existed years ago. We need more representation for lesbian relationships and what the dating life of a lezza entails as it’s such a unique and special thing that should be shown everywhere!”

Fiorenza is a chef by day and a drummer by night. Whenever there’s a chance to play the drums with her band, Uninvited, she’s all in! In 2022, the group clinched victory in BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge competition, and they’ve been on tour around the country ever since.

Sporting a masculine rock-chick style, Fiorenza often finds that girls assume she’s a ‘player’, but she couldn’t be further from it. She describes herself as a real ‘softie’, confessing that even if she tried to be a player, she’d inevitably end up falling in love. Admitting that she falls fast and loves hard, in dating lingo, she’s what’s known as a ‘golden retriever lesbian’—someone who adores being in a loyal relationship and cherishing her partner.

Fiorenza’s usual type is a femme girl with an edgy fashion sense and heaps of personality. She’s drawn to assertive girls who are hard to get, often referred to in the dating scene as ‘Black Cats’.

As the only single member of her band, Fiorenza is hopeful that she’ll find her perfect match in the Masseria.


AGE: 28 | FROM: Hunmanby, North Yorkshire | OCCUPATION: Professional Footballer | PRONOUNS: She/Her

Georgia - I kissed a girl

“My goal was not to cry on television and I think I made it to day two. It’s amazing that there’s finally a show like this out there. It’s incredible representation and I’m just so glad I got to be a part of it.”

Georgia, a professional footballer, has been playing since she was eight years old. Her career has taken her from Florida to South Carolina and back to the UK, where she’s played for various teams including Sheffield United Women FC, Durham Women’s FC, and currently, Rugby Borough Women’s Football Club. Football has been her whole life, and dating has inevitably taken a backseat.

Despite being a professional footballer, Georgia doesn’t fit the typical ‘football lesbian’ stereotype. While everyone assumes she’s playing the field and talking to multiple girls, the reality is she hasn’t been on a date in over a year.

In the past, Georgia struggled with the word ‘lesbian’ due to the negative connotations it had from her school days. However, over the years, she’s overcome those feelings and now feels proud of her sexuality and comfortable in her own skin.

Georgia is typically attracted to femme girls with a bit of an edge. She’s looking for someone who has their own ambitions and understands that football is a significant part of her life.


AGE: 22 | FROM: Caernarfon, Wales | OCCUPATION: Psychology Undergraduate | PRONOUNS: She/Her

Lisha - I kissed a girl

“The show is a step forward for the LGBTQ+ community and will hopefully help others have the courage to come out and be true to themselves.”

Lisha has always been a tomboy at heart. In her younger years, you’d often find her dressed in football kits, getting dirty, and fearlessly jumping off walls. She came out to her friends and family at the age of 13, and it just felt right to her at the time.

Originally from the small town of Bangor, Wales, Lisha is currently pursuing her postgraduate degree in Psychology. Although she’s taken a break from football to focus on her studies, she remains a loyal supporter of the Welsh dragons. One of her favourite pastimes is spending time with her Nan, who happens to be her best friend. They share a love for regular Sunday roasts and are as thick as thieves.

While Lisha has had relationships with girls in the past, she admits it’s been challenging to find the right dynamic. She’s drawn to femme girls and often takes on a more dominant role in relationships. However, it can be frustrating when partners try to confine her to the “masc” box and don’t allow her to express her feminine side.


AGE: 24 | FROM: Goole, West Yorkshire | OCCUPATION: Fire Breather | PRONOUNS: She/Her

Meg - I kissed a girl

“I loved the opportunity to meet so many beautiful queer girlies and being able to explore my type. I will definitely be bringing some heat to the show… in many ways.”

Meg, a dancer and fire-breather from West Yorkshire, describes herself as a homebody, and her friends affectionately call her ‘Mama Meg’. Known for her funky style and her love of tattoos, Meg travels the world performing at events. She jokes that there are two sides to her persona: ‘work Meg’ dresses sexy and garners a lot of attention, but outside of work, Meg is wholesome and looking to settle down with the right partner in life.

Though she dislikes labels, Meg would describe herself as ‘bisexual with a stronger preference towards women’. She’s searching for someone who can match her energy, has a good heart, and would never make her feel like she’s second best.


AGE: 25 | FROM: London | OCCUPATION: Engineer | PRONOUNS: She/Her

Naee - I kissed a girl

“I am proud to represent masculine-presenting women of colour who are gay. You do not see a lot of us on TV so I’m proud to be an addition to that little presented category. Viewers can expect their heads to be glued to the TV honestly. It is THAT good.”

Naee works as an engineer, maintaining the rides at iconic London attractions. When she came out to her mum and sister, her sister’s immediate reaction was, “I knew it!”.

Close to her family, Naee is grateful for their accepting nature, especially considering that Jamaican culture can sometimes be less so. She currently lives with her mum, who suffers from Osteoporosis and Fibromyalgia. Naee is determined to be successful so she can take care of her mother and treat her to wonderful holidays.

Describing herself as a masc girl, Naee exclusively dates femmes. She loves to take the lead in a relationship and treat her girlfriend like a princess. While she appreciates a girl behind the wheel, she’s more than happy to take care of everything else—carrying bags, opening doors, you name it!


AGE: 23 | FROM: Newport, South Wales | OCCUPATION: Hotel Customer Service | PRONOUNS: She/Her

Priya - I kissed a girl

“Being a Punjabi woman, I am so proud to represent my heritage and the South Asian community. This show embodies love, diversity and being unapologetically queer.”

Priya is a self-proclaimed ‘daddy’s girl’, known for her boundless energy and her outspoken nature. Her family affectionately calls her ‘Priyoncé’ because of her diva-like qualities! Proud of her dual heritage, Priya’s mum is white, and her dad is Sikh Punjabi. Growing up mixed-race and queer in South Wales presented its challenges, but with the unwavering support of her family, Priya, now 23, confidently embraces and celebrates all aspects of her identity.

Finding other queer women in her local area has been a challenge for Priya. Resorting to rather unconventional methods in the past, she once set her distance settings on Hinge to a location in America. Priya admits she has a tendency to fall for girls quickly and is actively working on taking things at a slower pace.


AGE: 22 | FROM: Belfast | OCCUPATION: Fashion Graduate | PRONOUNS: She/Her

Eva - I kissed a girl

“I used to search and search the internet for any WLW (women who love women) when coming to terms with my sexuality, so something like this is amazing.”

Known for her tall figure, long hair, and fantastic sense of humour, Belfast-born Eva is set to surprise the villa as a late arrival. A natural flirt, she attributes it to being a Gemini.

With a degree in Retail Fashion, Eva loves mixing up her style. She describes herself as ‘Stem’ – a blend of masculine and feminine energy.

While Eva has been in relationships before, she’s not sure if she’s ever been in love. Making queer friends hasn’t been easy for her, but she recently found a circle of mates through a football team; they fondly refer to themselves as the ‘football mums’.

Eva values confidence, ambition, and independence in women. Her biggest dating red flag is when her date drops the ‘love bomb’ too early. Admitting she’s the biggest flirt around, she’s excited to join the Masseria for an incredible summer “surrounded by fit girls”. Keep an eye on her…

We can’t wait. Who do you think will end up with who? Let us know in the comments below..
