LOVE Island contestant Afia Tonkmor has revealed the real reason the Islanders don’t film in the swimming pool – plus a shower secret.
The 25-year-old reality TV star was recently dropped from the ITV2 dating series alongside fellow bombshell Remi Lambert.
The star urged viewers to ‘ask her anything’ on the page, saying: “Hey everyone, it’s Afia Tonkmor, Love Islander from Season 8. I love promoting health and wellness and I am particularly passionate about living a vegan lifestyle.
“I’m here to answer your questions and for you all to get to know me better!”
It didn’t take long for Afia to be bombarded with messages on the forum.
Digging for the behind the scenes gossip, one asked: “Is it true you have to have to ask permission from production to take a shower or go into the pool?”
The message didn’t go unnoticed with Afia, who was quick to clear up any speculation.
She responded: “No, maybe to have a shower because usually they give you time to do it twice a day so wouldn’t usually need to x.”
While another fan asked: “How often do the Islanders get to use the pool or spa? Seems unfair to be in summertime Spain, but not be able to swim more often than we see.”
Afia said: “We are allowed to swim , there’s no rule but maybe they don’t air because it might be boring content mostly.”
The reality star also rated her show experience a five out of ten.
“Nothing bad, nothing great just glad I gave it a go,” she explained.
It comes after Afia revealed her plans to move abroad after being dumped from the show.
Speaking to Heat World magazine in a tell-all Instagram chat, the star said: “I don’t have many plans but I am going to move to Bali. I was always going to move to Bali and then this came about.
“Now me and my friends think it’s the best time. I feel like the UK is just not my vibe at this present moment in time.”
Describing her new lifestyle, Afia added: “Little hippie, vegan, namaste stuff. I’m really into my health and wellness and stuff.”
