Has she frozen her eggs?

She explained: ‘Theatre is my absolute passion and pantomime is something I have grown up with so I’m really excited to be doing my first professional show after Love Island.

'The Kings Theatre is absolutely beautiful and I was so blown away when I first came here. There’s so much history and I can’t wait to perform on the stage as part of a pantomime family.'
