LOVE Island’s Sharon Gaffka has insisted she did tell her Whitehall bosses she was going on the show this summer – and they are “huge fans” of it.
The 25-year-old was reported to have quit her job as a civil servant in the Department for Transport and it was claimed that her decision to go on the show was a shock to her department.
She said: “My intention post Love Island is to return to my profession. I did tell my boss and colleague that I am going on Love Island. They are really big fans of the show so I think they are more excited about it than I am.
Asked if she will have to monitor her behaviour because of her job, she explained: “I think that there is that civil service code of conduct to be aware of but it’s not something that is massively unaligned from my own personal morals and code of conduct anyway.
“I am not there to talk about my job or profession. I am there to find love, I am not particularly conscious or nervous that I will say something I shouldn’t.”
And in a new promo for Monday’s launch show, Shannon Singh strips down to a thong bikini as she kicks off viewers’ introduction to the latest batch of singletons. She purrs “let’s go” as she puts a record on before posing for the camera.
The full list of Islanders for this year was revealed on Monday – a week ahead of this season’s first episode airing on June 28.
