Love Island's Zara Holland Offers Advice To Series 3 Contestants

Her time on the island hit headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Former ‘Love Island’ contestant Zara Holland has shared her advice for this year’s contestants, ahead of the new series.

Zara hit the headlines during her time on the show last year, particularly when her sexual activity with a fellow contestant wound up costing her the title of Miss Great Britain.

Eventually, she left the show for personal reasons upon discovering that her mother was ill, but despite not having the smoothest of times when she was a contestant on ‘Love Island’, she’s urged the new crop of contestants to make the most of it.

Last year’s series was won by Nathan Massey and Cara De La Hoyde, who continued their relationship when they left the island.

However, after just shy of a year together, it was confirmed earlier this week that the two had decided to go their separate ways, following what Nathan described as a “tough few weeks”.

It has since been claimed that he’s set to star in ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ following the break-up, having made a handful of appearances on the ITVBe reality show with Cara during their time together.

‘Love Island’ will return to ITV2 later this year, with Caroline Flack back once again to take on presenting duties.
