Now she has finished uni and Shipwrecked, she says she would like to explore doing more work on TV, and loves the idea of going into presenting.

She describes herself as opinionated, unapologetic and funny

She also admits if she was on the show again, she would take it less seriously. She said: "At the time, everything seemed such a big deal, which is funny now. I wish I had been a bit sillier." She says her experience on Shipwrecked has made her more self-confident when things get a bit tough, and a stronger person.

She said she thinks so got onto the show because she's confident in who she is and has opinions. She said in this social climate, it is important to have women who have opinions and use their voice.

She also said that she is an organised person, and that University life set her in good stead for being around people all the time.

She was always down the SU at uni

She loves her dogs

Just another reason to want to be her friend really. Her Instagram is littered with pictures of her walking her dogs – and they're really cute.

She's not the only Loughborough student who packed up their bags for the castaway life. Meet Tom, third year Loughborough student and possibly the fittest Shipwrecked contestant there has ever been.
