Priya Gopaldas was definitely a very memorable contestant on the seventh series of Love Island even though her run on the show was cut rather short. This is how she's been keeping busy since her time in the villa.
Priya and Brett's short and sweet time on Love Island
After coupling up with fashion model Brett Staniland and almost instantly uncoupling for disliking his taste in cheese (yes, this really was a factor!) the UCL medical student was booted off the show only three days upon entering the villa.
Ultimately, the two were voted the most incompatible couple of the series and for good reason; Priya had said about partner Brett that he was flat out boring. However, after their time on the show, the two decided to give it one last shot by going on a coffee date. In a post show interview, Gopaldas explained that they decided to remain friends and that she was very happy to have him in her life as they had developed a very solid friendship.
What is Priya up to now?
Since leaving the villa, the stunning 24-year-old nursing student, who aided in the fight against COVID-19 at the height of the pandemic, is on the verge of finishing her studies. No stranger to healthy living, the brunette bombshell has most recently been very vocal about her passion for marathon running and participated in the 250km ultra-X marathon in aid of NHS Charities Together. She explained that her reason to participate in the charity run was to help NHS workers. She said:
Seeing patients die is something you never really get used to, but during the pandemic it was relentless—you can only imagine the mental impact that had on NHS workers.
That’s why the work of NHS Charities Together is so vital—NHS staff need their help to get through the challenges they continue to face, and I wish people knew the difference their donations can make.
Most recently, she appeared on the April 2022 cover of Women's Running UK which featured Priya in a six-page spread detailing her running story.
