You still may not have got over the fact that this year's Love Island cast are blessed with an ACTUAL member of Blazin Squad in their villa… (we know, celeb royalty!)

But cast your minds back and you'll realise that last year's squad had a rather big name within their midst as well. Yup, how could you forget the one and only Miss GB?!

Much like Marce with his Blazin Squad boasting, Zara Holland told absolutely EVERYONE about the fact she was a pageant queen, making it even more heartbreaking when her title was taken away from her after a steamy night in the hideaway with Alex Bowen…

And now, a year on, the former Islander has a few words of advice for the villa's inhabitants this time around. Speaking to The Sun's Bizzare column, she said that sex in the hideaway "cost me everything" and warned that people should be cautious before doing the deed.

"All I'll say is think before you do it," she said. "If you have kids they will see that. You know what kids are like in school. But it’s Love Island – some contestants go on there to find love, I don’t know about all of them."

Wise words Zara, wise words.

But while our Island veteran admits that doing the deed didn't do her any favours, she is understanding that for some couples who've been together for the long hall, it's just too hard to wait.

“Why is sex such a big thing? If they’re together from day one and they’re there to the end, it’s only seven weeks – not even two months – in the real world would you see someone every day? No.

“So a relationship is going to progress in there. Let's face it - everybody does do it."


At least if Marcel has sex he can't be stripped of his Blazin Squad accolate… or can he?!
