A Castlederg woman lost out on the opportunity to take part on the controversial TV reality show Love Island.

Sinead Hegarty, 23, had to describe herself to five blindfolded male contestants, but it wasn't to be.

The nightclub hostess, who currently works in Magaluf, lost out to Liverpool model Katie Salmon, 20, who gained notoriety after flashing one of her breasts to photographers at the Cheltenham festival.

So far the show has already had its fair share of controversy.

Zara Holland, who won the Miss Great Britain competition last year, was stripped of her title after getting intimate on screen with fellow islander Alex Bowen.

Then last night two contestants on the show, Emma Jane Woodham, 19, and Terry Walsh, 28, had full sex as others islanders looked on in horror.

A spokesperson for the group Media Watch UK said: "Love Island is creating a sexual spectacle for young people.

"Sex in the context of Love Island  is being sensationalised and demonstrates nothing of real loving committed relationships."
