Love Island’s Rachel Finni says she spoke to a therapist every day when she was in the villa


LOVE Island's Rachel Finni has revealed that she spoke to a therapist every day when she was in the villa.

The 29-year-old cast member suffered a rocky time on the ITV2 dating show, and concerned fans when she was regularly seen crying.

But she has heaped praise on Love Island's safeguarding - insisting that she always had somebody to talk to.

She shared: "The mental health checks are amazing - you have to have a thorough assessment ahead of going in, and 24-hour support in the villa with a therapist who you speak to every day."

Rachel added to Closer: "When I left I had regular calls with a therapist to check I was okay. They ask if you're sleeping, how you're feeling - they couldn't do any more."

The beauty struggled on the show when she made a bombshell arrival and then had to choose between Chuggs and Brad to save from being dumped.

She believed that she and Brad had a genuine connection, so dumped Chuggs - but was left heartbroken just two days later when his head turned for Lucinda.

Brad has since admitted that he "played the game" to stay on the show, and Rachel was unable to find love with any of the other boys.

She also suffered blunders while on the show, including being teased for her walk into the villa, and when a challenge fall saw her crash head-first into a railing and flash her bottom.

But Rachel has taken it all in her stride, and has since insisted that she only cried over Brad once.

She told fans on Instagram: "I feel like I'm saying the obvious here but you know this is a show that is filmed 24 hours a day and only certain parts are only put in.

"I did more than just cry on that show and when I cried, believe me, it wasn't just over Brad.

"I think I only cried over Brad once, it's very intense in there."
