Former ‘Love Island’ winner Dani Dyer says this year’s Islanders should “stick to [their] real, true friends” rather than indulge in the “fake, false world” of social media.
The 23-year-old star – who won the ITV2 dating show last year alongside then-boyfriend Jack Fincham – insists Islanders should “stick to [their] real, true friends” when return to the outside world, and believes they should even avoid social media altogether for the first few days after life on the island.
“Just lay off social media. I would tell them not to look at all for a few days, but they’re gonna look.
[It] is a really good tool, but it can be a fake, false world and everyone is very opinionated.
Your lives are going to change, especially when you first come out.
Everyone wants a bit of you. Stick to your real, true friends. Don’t get lost in the world of it. I’ve got my friends who I love and adore.”
Laura is tipping Maura Higgins to win this year’s ‘Love Island’ because the 28-year-old model makes her “belly laugh” with her comments on the show.
She added to the Daily Mirror newspaper:
“I absolutely adore her. She’s such a girl’s girl and she’s got such a strong character and it’s so good when a girl’s funny.
A girl can go in and be all glitz but Maura makes me belly laugh.”
Dani previously announced she and Jack had split via Instagram, only for the pair to get back together, and she later admitted she had “f***ed up” with the announcement.
She said afterwards:
I’d rather just be honest and say I f***ed up. Can I just do that please? I’m just going to say I f***ed up.
Obviously, I thought we was over. You have to put things out. It’s not like he didn’t know, he knew we were over at that point. It was horrible, I don’t want to upset anyone, it makes me sad.”
“I was in the pub actually, with my mates. Everyone started staring at me with their mouths open.”
But in April, just months after rekindling their relationship, Jack took to his Instagram Stories to confirm he and Dani had split for good.
