Her job has involved delivering Brexit and battling coronavirus for the government – so the hectic pace of Love Island will probably come as a relaxing break.

She said: “It’s been a bit of a running joke between my friendship group for a while that I should apply, probably because I’m the most outrageous one out of the group.

“But also because of Covid and the lockdown, I’m the only single one in my friendship group.

“They’re either married or planning on getting married. I don’t want to be the only one in the group chat that is single anymore!”
