Love Island's bomb disposal expert Camilla Thurlow proves a fan favourite

Camilla Love Island

Classy Camilla Thurlow has won herself an army of fans already on Love Island 2017.

One of the quieter Islanders, Camilla spoke up in tonight's show as she opened up about her job as a bomb disposal expert.


Her official job title - a worker in humanitarian explosive ordnance disposal - is rather different to the worlds of modelling and dancing that the other girls mostly seem to come from.

In a chat in the villa this week, Camilla told of how she travels the world with charities to rid war zones of unannotated explosives like mines.

"It's humanitarian," explained Camilla to the girls who first thought that she went "around killing people".

Speaking before her job before entering the villa, Camilla said: "I’ve been lucky to have an interesting career that has taken me all over the world, and I have a lot of great experiences.

"I don’t know if that makes me different but it’s given me a different background to a lot of other people. I will definitely miss my work – I’ve had breaks from it before, like when I moved to London, and I found it difficult. It was a very life changing experience."

Some viewers felt she was perhaps too good for the series compared to the other girls.

"Be a Camilla in a crowd of Chloe's 🙏🏼 #loveisland," one wrote.

"Camilla is too good for this show," one concluded after the episode. "Camilla is just too classy and educated for this show #loveisland," another added.

A third agreed: "Camilla is just too intelligent and interesting for this show. She can do so much better! #LoveIsland"


Another said: "Camilla has such a lovely presence and so much class. I hope someone sweeps her off her feet #loveisland"

Love Island 2017 continues nightly on ITV2.
