Speaking about the lengths she went to in order to feel her best on-screen, the Newquay native told the girls during Love Island Unseen Bits that she hadn’t “had a drink since New Years Eve.” It’s no secret that many dieticians and nutritionists warn against overindulging in alcohol, not just because it’s proven to be bad for both physical and mental health but because it’s regarded as having “empty calories”.
