The 22-year-old reality star bedded fellow 'Love Island' contestant Alex Beattie on last year's show but has urged the crop of hopefuls who will be heading to the Majorca villa for the next series not to do the same as she wishes she hadn't.

She said: "In hindsight, having sex on TV wasn't the best idea. My advice to the new hopefuls is not to do it.

"If I could have done it differently, I wouldn't have had sex.

"But, other than that, I really enjoyed the experience.

"I just wish I'd made a better decision in that area."

And the model admitted one of the worst things about getting intimate on screen is she is constantly quizzed about it and she knows it can always be "used against" her in an argument.

She told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "It's all everyone wants to speak about now.

"It's like playing Top Trumps and, if you ever want to beat someone, they can always use that against you.

"I've got younger brothers aged 15 and 19 and I would be mortified if I saw them doing that on TV.

"But I set myself up for it, so I just have to handle it."

Montana had insisted before the show started that she wouldn't be having sex on camera, but she admitted the "intense environment" of the show makes it seem like the "right thing" to do because relationships accelerate so much.

She explained: "It's completely justified when people have sex, because when you're in such an intense environment you think it's the right thing to do.

"When you're in there 24/7, in a confined space, it's almost like you're in a six to eight-month relationship, because each week feels like a year.

"But definitely go in with the mindset of not having sex."
