When the contestants of ITV2’s Love Island discussed Brexit earlier this month, it led to widespread ridicule after one reality star – by the name of Hayley – suggested that Brexit could mean the UK no longer had any trees. However, should you be in the market for a slightly more informed political discussion on the hit reality show – in which contestants try and find love – you could be in luck.
Last night, a ‘government adviser’ entered the villa. Step forward Zara McDermott. In the past eight months, Zara has worked for the Department of Education under Damian Hinds, advising on policy.
On entering villa, she said:
‘I think I’m a catch. I’m definitely a catch. I tend to go for guys who are emotionally unavailable, don’t want relationships but love to give me a chase. I’ve definitely got the brains and yeah, they just need to look good.’
Her colleagues must be thrilled.
