Zara McDermott Reveals Love Island Secrets As She Shares How She Was Picked To Star In Show

Former government advisor and Love Island star Zara spills some juicy gossip about the picking process of ITV2's hit dating show...

Zara's appearance on Love Island was as short as it was sweet as she won the heart of a hunky 'player' with a bad reputation when it came to commitment. But it seems personal trainer Adam Collard became a changed man when he met the brunette beauty in the villa.

Whilst Zara was only on the show for a total of no more than two weeks, she made a memorable impression when bad-boy Adam just couldn't keep away from her. Five months later, the pair have come out as one of the strongest couples of the 2018 - even if it was a little rough along the way.

But how did the producers pick her out? And what made Zara reconsider her dislike to becoming an islander? Check out the video to see what she had to say...
