Samira Mighty on this year's Love Island

2018 Love Island contestant Samira Mighty thinks this year's female contestants are, "catty."

She says she wouldn't know who to trust in the 2019 villa.

Samira opens up in an interview with BBC Radio 1’s The Reality Tea Podcast with Raj and Pilar.

"I wouldn’t want to be in there. It’s too much. I wouldn’t know who to trust."

"I wouldn’t know who to be friends with, I wouldn’t know who to have a love interest with…"

She gives her opinion, "it seems really like toxic in there."

The ex islander admits she was shocked at the way the girls treat each other.

Samira brands their behaviour as, 'catty,' and questions their friendship.

She says of her time in the villa, "We all had like really good friendships."

"Even if someone didn’t really get along with them, they were still quite good friends with them."

"I feel like this year, the girls are so catty..."

Presumably referring to the Lucie and Amy drama at the start of the series, Samira says, "Even from the start, I was like 'Oh my gosh'."

"Like leaving people out. In there, it’s so, like you can feel so alone."

The reality star says the villa is a tough environment, "You’re just there, in a place you can’t really hide, you can’t be on your own really."

"And I think you need friends in there and I don’t know if they are really true friends."

Samira's Love Island experience

She starred on last year's series of Love Island where she met Frankie.

They seemed crazy about each other at the time and she was definitely smitten.

However, he was unexpectedly dumped from the villa, leaving her absolutely heartbroken.

She made a very important decision to leave the villa to be with him.

When she arrived home, she couldn't believe her eyes when she saw Frankie waiting for her at Gatwick Airport.

Fans caught the moment on camera and shared it to social media.

During an episode of Aftersun, he asked her to be his girlfriend.

''In there what you've seen was so much fun with Sam but, since we've come out we've had the best time."

"So I don't just want you to be my couple on Love Island, I want to know if you want to be girlfriend.''

It all came crashing down however, when a video emerged of Frankie kissing a woman's neck while on a public appearance in a nightclub in Kent.

He allegedly told the woman that his relationship with Samira was, 'all for the cameras.'

Her rep told MailOnline, 'Samira will be taking some time out from her relationship with Frankie to focus on herself and future work opportunities.'

'They have spoken in depth about the recent events and Samira feels a break, for now, is the best thing for both of them...'

While a rep for Frankie spoke to OK Online, 'Frankie wholeheartedly knows that his actions were not acceptable and has apologised to Samira.'

'At this moment in time having their own space is most important.'
