OUR COLUM­NIST GABBY ALLEN’S VIEW

Reveal - - CELEBS -

‘One of my first thoughts on watch­ing the show was that there wasn’t much body di­ver­sity.

‘All of the first girls were sim­i­lar: very slim, with fake boobs and hair ex­ten­sions. Also, the camera adds weight to you, too, so they’ll be even tinier in real life.

‘That’s why I had my lit­tle break­down when I was in the Love Is­land villa last year, be­cause I was a dif­fer­ent build to the other girls.

‘It knocked my con­fi­dence – I didn’t have big hair or fake boobs, and I felt in­ad­e­quate.

‘Af­ter talk­ing about it, though, I have had so much feed­back from women say­ing I in­spired them to be con­fi­dent in their own skin. I hope they bring some curvy and edgy girls in soon.’
