Former Love Island contestant Malin Andersson has warned people of the "consequences" of reality TV, admitting that the "bad outweighs the good".
She continued: "Wanna ask my followers: How many of ya want to be 'famous' and love reality tv? Do you understand truly what it means and consequences of appearing on shows like Love Island? It's not all good."
In a sobering reminder to fans, Malin added: "I reckon the bad outweighs the good."

This isn't the first time Malin has opened up about her experience of Love Island – the reality star told Digital Spy last year that she thought the show's aftercare system "wasn't enough" for contestants.
"I don't blame the show itself, because we asked to go on it, but I think the care received wasn't enough," she said, reflecting on the death of friend and Islander Sophie.
"If someone is crying for help, like Sophie kind of did, and asked for help after it, with a psychiatrist or whatever. I think that they should have noted that and realised."
"We have psych tests before the show, to see if we're fit to be in the villa," Malin explained. "But afterwards, we need more support coming out."
Ahead of Love Island's return this summer, ITV confirmed last month that it would be making changes to the aftercare process for future casts, including adding financial and social media training to go along with mental health counselling.
However, its chief executive also said that aftercare cannot be kept up "indefinitely".
