Love Island’s Tanya Manhenga puts on a sizzling display as she models bikinis after hitting back at editors portraying her as the ‘big bad villain’ on the show
Love Island star Tanya Manhenga was in summer mode as she modelled a string of sexy bikinis by the pool.
The television personality, 23, flaunted her figure as she slipped into a pink cut out swimsuit and a green bikini as she took to Instagram on Tuesday.
Tanya teamed the swimwear with tiny sarongs and shorts as she pouted for the camera and swished her hair this way and that.
It comes as Tanya and her boyfriend Shaq Muhammad, 24, took a swipe at Love Island bosses over the way she was edited on screen.
‘I’ve watched more than she’s watched and based on the things that I know and how it was perceived, Tanya’s not like that. She’s not this big bad villain that everyone thinks she is,’ Shaq said.

‘She’s honestly the nicest, kindest girl that I’ve ever met and I wouldn’t be with her if that wasn’t the case,’ he added in an interview with the Daily Star.
Tanya said: ‘We never got picked because we were actually decent and they could tell how I am because they know how I am, but then obviously on screen it was a completely different thing, so yeah I do think we got edited pretty bad because that’s not me.’
ITV declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline.

Her grid on the photosharing platform is littered with snaps from her trip to the South African mansion, including in the beach hut and fire pit.
A source told The Sun: ‘Molly was scouted after visiting the villa in South Africa earlier this year. She was on the tour as an invited guest when she caught the eyes of producers.
‘Molly made it clear she would love to be a part of Love Island and she was told to audition. After going through the process, she’s now a shoo-in to fly to Mallorca later this month.
‘She is a star on the rise and comes from a showbiz family — her mum Janet even had small roles on Coronation Street and Still Open All Hours. Molly has made it clear she’s got what it takes to make a bang and ITV love her.’
It’s believed Molly has bagged roles in national tours of Oliver! and Sleeping Beauty before trying her luck on the small screen.
The insider went on to tell how thousands of hopefuls have now been shortlisted to 25, with the final cut set to be announced in just days.
