Former 'Love Island' star Francesca Allen is planning to make her friends from the villa her bridesmaids.
The 26-year-old beauty got engaged to Ed Crossan in December after over a year of dating, and she's spilled that she is planning to make some of her closest pals from her stint on the ITV2 dating show part of her bridal party.
She said: “[My friends from Love Island are] 100 per cent going to be part of my wedding. I’m considering a few of them as bridesmaids to be fair, so they’ll definitely be part of my special day.”
The fashion influencer was close to Yewande Biala, Joanna Chimonides and Amy Hart on the fifth series of 'Love Island'.
Francesca is set on having her wedding abroad and is heading to Italy to check out some venues after deciding against party central, Ibiza.
She said: “I’ve been really chill [about wedding plans] and I haven’t really started anything yet.
“Ed keeps asking me ‘So… any thoughts?’. I definitely think I want it to be abroad; I looked at Ibiza but that wasn’t really for me. I actually went to a few viewings.”
She added to OK! Online: “I’m going to go to Italy and have a look around there. There’s a couple of places that I really like there. I just need to get the feel! Once I have the place, then I can get rolling.
“Italy’s just beautiful and I loved it when I’ve been there, and I’ve got a bit of Italian in my family.
“The food’s good in Italy, you can’t really beat it."
Francesca was briefly coupled up with Michael Griffiths on the 2019 season of 'Love Island'.
