Former 'Love Island' star India Reynolds is pleased she didn't have to take part in the show's striptease challenge.

The 31-year-old star - who took part in the 2019 series of the programme – feels "grateful" she didn’t have to perform a "sexy dance" during her time on the ITV2 dating show, admitting she would've much rather much rather of taken part in some of the programme's bizarre food challenges instead.

India told the Daily Star newspaper: “I know that when I was in there [that] I was so grateful that I didn’t have to do the strip challenge because I don’t think I could have done that – not sober.

“No, no way could I have done that, I would have rather done a food challenge than a sexy dance any day of the week.

“I don’t think we did a food one, I think we did a water one and that was so much fun.”

The reality star also believes ITV bosses should recruit "a lot more different body types" on the series.

She added: “I feel like there should be a lot more different body types [on the show].”

India has previously opened up about self-love and body confidence.

She said: “It’s unrealistic to every day look in the mirror and not want to wish things were a little different, but nowadays I spend a lot less time thinking about it.

“Your body is your body and you don’t want to reach 80 and be like, ‘why didn’t I wear a bikini or nice underwear all because I hated my body?’

“You’re only going to regret it. I think sometimes we spend too much time analysing ourselves.”

‘Love Island’ airs tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.

The reality show can be seen in Ireland on Virgin Media Two and Virgin Media Player.
