Love Island 2018’s Zara McDermott is set to film another documentary for BBC Three. The new film is entitled Sexism in Schools and will see Zara discussing sexist attitudes and where they come from with boys from both state and private schools. She’ll also talk to girls about their direct experiences of sexism and ‘rape culture’ in school.
Zara McDermott: Sexism in Schools
After the success of my Revenge Porn documentary, I am both honoured and thrilled to be making my second documentary with BBC Three. I was, and still am, incredibly overwhelmed by the response so far and to be working on another powerful, emotive, educational and eye-opening film is going to be a fantastic next step.
I hope that by speaking out and bringing awareness to such important yet often taboo topics, we can help people not just across the country, but the world too.
Zara revealed earlier this year that she was stepping back from reality TV in order to carry out more work to make a difference, such as creating documentaries.

BBC Three controller Fiona Campbell said:
Zara's first BBC Three film about revenge porn was both shocking and eye-opening and the response has been incredible. We're really looking forward to working with her again for this film that confronts another important subject that needs to be discussed and we're hoping that this film will be equally impactful with our audience.
Zara’s new 60-minute documentary Sexism in Schools has no official release date yet but is said to be ‘coming soon’ to BBC Three. Her previous documentary, Zara McDermott: Revenge Porn is still available on iPlayer and is currently 2021’s most-requested factual programme on BBC Three.
