Love Island star returns to day job following 2021 series

By James Rodger & Sophie McCoid

Love Island contestant Georgia Townend has given up on fame to return to her day job.

Georgia, 28, was only in the villa for just over 24 hours in the 2021 series and she's now gone back to her former role as a marketing executive.

Georgia shared a video of herself trying to enter her office with her work pass as she told her followers: "Will my pass let me in? Or have I been sacked?

"Yaaay, it's let me in. Made it to work, but can I make it through the day, that's the real question."

She failed to couple up with anybody during her brief stint on the show - despite making a play for Hugo Hammond.

After she left the Majorca villa, she told viewers over Instagram: "I entered the villa with honest intentions, I was hopeful that despite being an unorthodox method, there could be a real prospect of meeting someone. Unfortunately, things don’t always pan out the way you’d hoped, but if you learn a lesson it’s always worth the tuition fee.

"I knew before even applying I was an aberration compared to the atypical islander. I’m s***e at make up, I can’t flirt to save my life, and apparently I have dreadful fashion sense.

"But despite these obvious shortcomings, I wanted to represent normal girls who struggle to date, aren’t interested in the social equity and had a genuine desire to find someone."

She added: "I value my integrity above all else, and didn’t want to invest my time where it was unrequited or have to sabotage couples to save my own skin. Whilst that meant I was probably a s**t islander it means I walked away with my dignity and respect in tact."
