Love Island’s new beauty queen ‘wont be following in Zara Holland’s footsteps’

Love Island is rumoured to be welcoming a new beauty queen to the villa this year and her pals have already revealed that she won't be having sex on TV.

With fans of the ITV2 dating show impatient to find out who this year's hopefuls will be, the beautiful brunette Sharon Gaffka has been tipped as one of the Islanders.

Sharon has already made it clear to her friends that she will not be following in the footsteps of Zara Holland, who had her title of Miss Great Britain stripped from her after she had had sex on-screen with co-star Alex Bowen during her time in the villa in 2016.

The brunette beauty was crowned Miss International UK in 2018 and has said there's "zero chance" of her getting it on once she's in the villa.

The gorgeous model is due to take viewers "by surprise" this season as she hopes to champion women's rights and use the platform to highlight important political issues along the way to finding "the one".

Friends of the new Islander spoke to The Sun to share insight into what the model is really like, they said: "Sharon is intensely political and a big campaigner around equality and women’s rights.

“She’s always talked of wanting to work in politics so is likely to use her platform on the show to talk about issues which she feels passionately about.

“She is going to take everyone by surprise. She’s a real crusader and has a lot in life she wants to achieve.”

The news about what Sharon is willing to do on screen comes after former Love Island star Zara claimed the dating show ruined her life after her Miss Great Britain title was taken from her.

ITV have vehemently denied her claims, but that hasn't stopped Zara from calling Love Island a "posh prison" where she says producers "brainwashed" her into acting a certain way.

She went on to further claim that her mum had begged producers to give her the chance to speak to her daughter as she began to "turn into someone she wasn't" – ITV have also denied this.

Zara now openly takes anti-depressants and has therapy after suffering panic attacks following the show.

Speaking to the Daily Mail about her time on the dating show, Zara has previously said: "You think you're on a summer holiday and you might find love, but you are in a posh prison where you don't know what time it is and a voice in a wall tells you what to do.

"I honestly believe I was brainwashed.

"That show screwed me up. I blame it for everything. What it does to the contestants is terrible."

ITV bosses have confirmed that this year the cast will be trained in trolling and finance after tragedies have struck for past Islanders.

They have confirmed the 2021 islanders will be given coaching in money matters and dealing with online trolling, in addition to therapy sessions to help them with adjusting to their fame after they leave the villa.

These new guidelines follow a 2018 enquiry into the show that has been hit with controversy in the past surrounding mental health, including the tragic deaths of contestants Mike Thalassitis and Sophie Gradon.

Islanders will be given advice on how to deal with advertising campaigns, job offers and other public appearances and TV show opportunities that may come their way.

Love Island returns Monday 28th June on ITV2
