WINTER Love Island’s Siannise Fudge has admitted that she’s “mentally not as happy” after the show – hinting that she wishes she’d never gone on it.
The 26-year-old star shot to fame on the ITV2 series last January, where she and boyfriend Luke Trotman landed a spot in the final before losing out to winners Paige Turley and Finn Tapp.
But despite she and Luke still being loved up, and recently getting a puppy to join them in their London flat, Siannise shared her regrets at signing up to the show.
In a brutally honest Instagram Q&A, the brunette beauty asked followers to make an assumption about her that she would respond to.
One fan wrote: “You miss your old life before all the fame from Love Island.”
Siannise candidly replied: “True. I was very content and happy in my life before Love Island and I feel like mentally I’m not as happy.
“If I could turn back the clock I think I would have made a different decision – and I don’t mean to sound ungrateful.”
She added: “Mental health and happiness comes first for me always.”
Worried fans then pointed out that she never would have met Luke if she didn’t go on the show, which Siannise addressed in a subsequent post.
She wrote: “He was the only great thing to come out of it for me!
“Just wanted to clear that up. If I could have met him another way I would have.”
The Bristol star went on to reassure her concerned fans that she is okay, penning: “I’m receiving such lush messages from you all!
“I am absolutely fine, just been feeling a bit burnt out the past few days. I always like to keep it real on here and not fool you into thinking I have the perfect life and that I’m happy all the time.
“I’m only human, I have my days! This third lockdown hasn’t helped either, I’m finding it difficult. But I’ll be back stronger.”
Earlier this month, Siannise and Luke, 23, showed off their new puppy Nala as their one-year anniversary fast approaches.
The pair met on Love Island’s only winter edition last year, and their relationship has gone from strength to strength since leaving the South Africa villa.
