ITV Love Island's Antigoni pretty in pink on first visit to Manchester as she shows off singing voice

She may have been dumped from the Love Island villa in emotional scenes on the ITV dating contest, but Antigoni Buxton reflected on a warm welcome she received while in Manchester. The 26-year-old singer-songwriter from London shared fresh photos from her visit up north on her Instagram.

She looked 'unreal' in a pink bikini top and coordinating V-line ruched mini-skirt as she smiled for the cameras. Antigoni showed off her golden tan and toned midriff in her patterned coords.

And the former Islander, who was voted out of the TV villa over Tasha Ghouri and Danica Taylor by the boys, shared a clip of herself singing and playing the guitar in a cut-out detail blue dress. And she shared photos of herself with former Islanders Kaz Crossley and Wes Nelson from Love Island 2018 and Jacques O'Neill her pal from this year's series.


"First time in Manny!! Thank-you for the warm welcome," she wrote. And 2016 Islander Scott Thomas, manager director of Manchester-based PR firm The Social PR, replied: "It was a pleasure to have you! Great energy."

Kaz told her: "Welcome anytime princess." "Gang," said Wes. And Jacques replied: "Bestie." Tasha, who found love in this year's series with Andrew Le Page, commented: "Unreal." And bethjadee.x said: "I always say blue is your colour but idk pink seems to be creeping to the number 1 spot."

Last month Antigoni and Jacques, who left the show for his mental health, met up in London for brunch alongside both their mums, Janet and Tonia Buxton, who is a famous chef and television presenter.

And their post-villa friendship appears to be continuing as the pair were seen enjoying themselves in Manchester. Antigoni filmed herself in the car alongside 23-year-old Jacques as they headed to the city. "Made it to Manchester but this taxi driver is a bit of a rebel," the blonde beauty said before turning the camera on a grinning Jacques.

Antigoni failed to find love on the popular show. She was left disappointed when Davide Sanclimenti and Jay Younger were both taken.
