Priya is currently studying to become a doctor.

Speaking of her career, she revealed: “I’ve been studying for five years now. It’s six years until I qualify as a doctor and the goal is to be an orthopedic surgeon – that is muscles and bones. There aren’t enough women in that area of surgery. I feel like I’d like to go head first into that area and be a representative for women who think orthopedic surgery is male dominated. More women need to be exposed to it and realise they can do it.”

She continued: “I feel like this year in particular has been so intense because of Covid. Our studies were interrupted midway and we were all told if we wanted to we could help out during the pandemic so I was working in ICU for the whole of February. You would come back after every shift exhausted so there definitely wasn’t any time for dating or relationships.

“The NHS has been really tough in the ICU with the long hours, but I find it so rewarding and it’s made me really resilient. Being here is good for me because it’s something absolutely different to my job.”

She worked on the Covid-19 Intensive Care Unit in early 2021.

Priya volunteered her services on the Covid ward when students were contacted asking if they could help with the increasing cases.

Priya worked six day, 12 hour night shifts, supporting doctors and nurses in the understaffed department.

Priya loves exercising and regularly shares pictures of herself running, quad biking and even sky diving.

She also shares clips of her and her friends going out to bars and restaurants, enjoying meals out and getting dressed up to enjoy cocktails.

She described it as a “daunting experience” writing that she “was shocked to see just how ill patients were”.

Priya is very modest about her work as a nurse, writing that she is one of many helpers and telling her

Priya is set to enter as the series goes into its final weeks, and her arrival is sure to shake things up.

She has spent the first week in August in isolation in Majorca.

Now rumours are circulating that Priya could be entering TONIGHT with professional footballer Aaron Simpson.

It’s thought the Former Wolverhampton Wanderers player has been in Majorca for a number of weeks waiting to take part.

Aaron has also played football for Portsmouth and Sutton United.

Aaron has high standards when it comes to girls, but his mother’s are even higher.

He told the Daily Star: “Sometimes it can be hard to know if someone is genuine or not.

“My family is really important to me. I’m very close to my mum, dad and my sister.

There’s three guys on Priya’s radar – Matthew, Teddy and Dale.

When asked who she fancies the most, she said: “I think Matthew is my type. He’s tall and I like his Irish accent. He seems really intelligent and I think we’ll get on. Also Teddy seems really cheeky and a good laugh and Dale is spicy and attractive! “

Matthew is very single after he simply told Kaz: “We’re done!” and Teddy was recently been dumped by Faye following the movie night clip of him admitting he found former contestant Clarisse attractive. Dale is coupled up with Abigail, but has been chatting to Mary, so Priya might have to graft a little there.

So is she competitive?

“Absolutely,” she said. “Competition is something I really enjoy, I thrive off it. I went to an all girls school so it was very competitive and I played netball with a team of girls. I’m also a keen runner, I run ultra marathons which is another of my passions. I’ve been around lots of girls before that I’ve been in direct competition with so I’m used to that. I’m ready for the Love Island Villa in terms of competition.”

Love Island is an ITV reality TV show which sees single participants couple up in an effort to find love - and win a £50,000 prize.

The show is currently presented by Laura Whitmore and narrated by her husband, comedian Iain Stirling.
