Priya exclusively told the Daily Star: "The one comment that had really affected me is from a girl who is probably a bit younger than me, usually the negative comments are from anonymous profiles so you think whatever, you just dismiss them.

"But this girl looked very similar to me and was a student and she was really pretty and normal Instagram account essentially and I remember her sending me a message saying I was really thin and all bones no flesh and online the other Islanders were curvy and feminine.

"I don't really take comments to heart but comments like that can be really dangerous and they can make people want to change themselves."

She also revealed some racist abuse that experienced and said: "I remember getting called a terrorist which was ridiculous in one of the comments, it was clearly to do with racism and so I blocked the words from my account."

She also revealed how scary the secret 'Voice of God' is inside the villa.

Priya said: "I was actually really scared of the Voice of God I remember early on, I was the last girl and I didn't know the rules or anything and I remember really wanting a shower and it was so hot.

"I was really sweaty in the middle of the day and I went into the villa as it was open so I went had a quick shower and the next thing I know the Voice of God shouted 'Priya, you shouldn't be in the shower at the moment, you should be in the garden' so yeah, I got in trouble by it."

Priya has teamed up with meat-free brand Quorn to run the Royal Parks Half Marathon on Sunday 9th October.

Quorn is the ‘Official Sustainable Protein Partner’ this year and wants to help the event further its sustainable ambitions by supporting nutrition on race day at the Plant-Based Food Village, as Presenting Partner.

Talking about the campaign, Priya added: "I'm really excited to be an ambassador of Quorn because it's supporting the race's ambition to become the greenest race in the UK. Also, with Quorn, as a vegetarian and a runner, it's so important for me to have tasty sustainable protein in my diet."
