The former 'Love Island' star has been working hard since she left the famous villa but is keen to let her hair down over the next two weeks and get into the festive spirit.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: "In the lead up to Christmas, I'll probably just party and work and lots of vino and then on Christmas Day I just have my whole family over. It'll be my first year without my granddad so the whole family are making more of an effort to get together for this particular one."

And then once Christmas is over and done with, the 23-year-old beauty - who has just been signed to Select Model Agency - wants to focus on her photography career because it's taken a back seat since she took part in the dating show.

She said: "I'd like to do both [TV and modelling]. I was obviously modelling before I went into 'Love Island' and obviously I'd still like to keep doing that. But things are a bit hectic at the moment."

And the brunette beauty is certainly easing herself in gently as she's just finished shooting her new 2018 calendar.

She said: "I've always loved getting my New Year calendar from my mum at Christmas. It's something we've always done so when this opportunity came up to do my own calendar I was so excited.

"I wanted to do the shoot in Mallorca as I grew up there and it has sentimental value to me and beautiful scenery. I love the photos as it brings some sunshine to your homes during the winter months. I had such fun shooting it and I hope all my fans like it."
