Amy Hart could be set to swap the sun loungers of the Love Island villa for the green benches of the House of Commons.
The former reality show contestant applied to study politics at university prior to taking on a role as cabin crew for British Airways, and has hinted she could one day attempt to enter the corridors of power.
The 28-year-old told the Mirror she wants to "use my Love Island powers for good, as opposed to getting free theatre tickets".
Since departing the reality show in 2019, Hart has been a vocal supporter of the Labour party and the trade union movement, as well as volunteering in a food bank.

She said she doesn't think she will be pursuing a political career any time soon, but wouldn't rule it out in the future.
Hart said: "People think that politics is men in suits and doesn't apply to us. It's very alien to normal people.
"But it is normal things, that's what I'm trying to get across."

She added: "I remember someone – that I'm no longer friends with – saying to me: 'I can't believe someone who was going to study politics at university is applying to go on Love Island.'
"And that's fine, actually, because I can use my voice more."
Hart competed on the 2019 series of Love Island — the most recent summer series, given the 2020 incarnation was cancelled due to COVID-19.
She spent much of her time on the show in a relationship with professional dancer Curtis Pritchard, choosing to leave the competition voluntarily after their split.
Hart has since been outspoken about health and politics on social media, recently revealing that she worked extensively with the show's mental health team to help her deal with trolls.
Alongside fellow contestants including Dr Alex George, Yewande Biala and Rosie Williamson, she has used her platform to speak out about mental health in young people — particularly in relation to reality TV.
Love Island is due to return to TV screens later this month, presented again by Laura Whitmore.
