    If she is mixed she is one of the least attractive mixed people i have seen (Facewise). She look like Amy from Below Deck…..

    I don’t think she qualifies as ‘Manx’ and is purely mixed race. Her mother is looks Indo to me.

    Her mother isn’t white (look at pic below).

    She’s Manx and something else. Perhaps Fijian or Islander (her mother looked Polynesian).
