‘A lot of adjusting’ – Catherine Agbaje gets honest about life after Love Island

The Dubliner was one of Season 10’s OG contestants.

Irish Love Island contestant Catherine Agbaje, 23, has gotten candid about the difficulties that have come with adapting to life outside of the Mallorca villa.

The real estate agent admitted that it has involved ‘a lot of adjusting’ since she returned to the real world after her stint on the reality show.

Taking to her Instagram stories, Catherine told her 229,000 followers that she has been ‘surrounding’ herself ‘with family and friends in order to make the transition easier.

During her time in the Love Island villa, she quickly became a fan favourite, with many viewers rooting for Catherine and Scott van der Sluis’ to go the distance.

However, following Casa Amor, the power couple went their separate ways when she returned with Elon Ahlijah-Wilson, shocking viewers of the hit show.

The 23-year-old and Elon were dumped for being the ‘least compatible couple’ by the public in a shock eviction from the villa.

However, despite not finding love, she’s got some plans in the pipeline for her career.

She told her followers: “I’ve always wanted to get into real estate. When I was younger, I always loved the idea of fulfilling people’s dreams and transformations.

“I had a lot of interests, and real estate was one, so I always aimed to get into it. Will still be involved in it! Stay tuned.”

Without getting too ahead of ourselves, we would love to see the Dubliner merge her reality TV show exploits with her real estate experience in a Selling Sunset-style show.

Is it too much to ask?

Speaking on returning to the Emerald Isle and in true Irish spirit, she also revealed that she would be making a trip home to Ireland next week and was looking forward to a ‘spice bag or chicken fillet roll.’
