The 36-year-old presenter explained that she has to conceal her feelings towards the Islanders on the ITV2 reality show every time she enters the villa because she is such a big fan of the programme.

Speaking on 'The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan', Laura said: "It’s really weird because I’ve been a fan of this show for years, from the start, I love it… and when I go in there, I have to remember that I’m not a fan. I’m there to be serious and not to give anything away."

Laura also admitted that she is "fickle" when it comes to the contestants and regularly changes her opinions on the stars.

Asked for her thoughts on this year's Islanders, she said: "Do you know what I’m so fickle as a person, it changes every episode.

"Like, my favourite person at the start is now no longer my favourite. And I forgive people quite quickly... Some people I don’t like and then I do like."

Laura - who is married to the show's narrator Iain Stirling - also explained that 'Love Island' tends to be slow-burning every year.

She said: "Iain [Stirling]’s obviously worked on it for years and he says, 'So week one, they say this. Week One they say there’s no one as good as the previous year. Then week two they start to warm up a little bit.

"'Then week three, they’re kind of getting into it. Then week four, Casa Amor. Bam! Everyone’s into it and they say it’s the best year so far."
