Camilla Thurlow has revealed she was invited onto Love Island 2017 by producers.

The fan favourite has spilled it was actually her idea to apply for the show this year.


Instead, in an interview with DigitalSpy before entering the villa, Camilla shared she was approached by producers.

And even then Camilla wasn't sure about it all.

She explained: When I first got asked, I thought, 'Oh my gosh, will I be able to do this?' Then I had a couple of meetings and the team were so friendly."

Continuing, Camilla said of her reasons for saying yes to the show: "I have neglected my personal life for so long – that's why Love Island sounded like a great opportunity. I really want to meet someone.

"You see, I'm at the age now where I'm coming back home and all my friends are settling down; the wedding invitations are starting to mount up and I have to tell them, 'Oh, no plus one for me!' I am looking for love."

Unfortunately for Camilla, while viewers have become slightly obsessed with her, the boys in the villa haven't shown as much interest.


Right now Camilla is single and at risk of being the first girl evicted ahead of the next recoupling on Sunday night.

Love Island 2017 continues nightly at 9PM on ITV2.
