Love Island 2017: Montana

Montana Brown has put herself forward to replace Caroline Flack as host of Love Island.

Montana, who appeared on this year's series of the ITV2 show, said that taking over hosting duties would be a "dream".

"That is the aim," Montana told the Huffington Post. “I want to go back for starters, and I think it would be good for a presenter to know how it feels and know their problems and know the issues.

“That would be amazing, long-term wise. Caroline has got some competition.”

In a chat with Star magazine, Montana added: "That would be the dream. I can empathise with the contestants and I feel I'd be perfect for it.

"Unless you've done it, you don't understand how intense it is in there."

However Montana went on to insist there was no real rivalry between her and Caroline, praising the "lovely" TV presenter.

“She’s phenomenal. You need [support] in there - you need some hope!” Montana said of Caroline, who has fronted Love Island since 2015.

Meanwhile, Montana revealed that as well as hosting, she's also up for more reality TV.

“I wouldn’t do Big Brother but I’d love to go into the jungle - come at me!” she explained. “And Strictly Come Dancing, although I’m such a bad dancer, so I’m not sure that would be a very good idea!”

Montana, who split from her Love Island boyfriend Alex Beattie just after the series finished, previously admitted she had only gone on the show to launch a media career.

Following July's final, Montana made an appearance on ITV's Loose Women and revealed: "I just thought it would be a really good platform for me to do what I want to do.

"I don't know what that is yet, but I just thought it would open some doors and maybe some opportunities as well."

She added: "To be in the public eye, I feel like it gives you a great platform to influence the public in a good way."
