While Gill won the show with Greg O'Shea, 27, back in 2019, the pair split after just two weeks together.

She tweeted: "Switching teams was the best decision I made in my life," before adding: "Watching men makes me feel ill. I couldn't put myself through it again."

Now, in a new interview on FUBAR Radio's Access All Areas, Gill told hosts Bobby Norris and Stephen Leng that the tweet was an 'off the cuff comment' but it was 'true'.

She explained: "I meant exactly what I said."

Gill was then asked to clarify if the tweet was her coming out, and she replied: "Accidentally, I remember looking at it [the tweet] and thinking sh**t, what have I said."

She went on to say that it was on-brand of her to come out in that way, adding: "Like a lot of my friends were like if you were gonna do it any way, that's the typical way that you would do that.

"Normally people have these lovely, beautiful stories and lovely, beautiful real Instagram posts, like just lush. I've put switching teams on a tweet and that's how I came out."

While Gill said that she doesn't currently have a special lady in her life, she admitted she was 'open to it' and explained that she 'doesn't have a type' with women.

The 25-year-old said she's become more picky in her dating life after Love Island.

"I find it really difficult, and I can't like I really don't know like, the reason behind it," she explained. "But I just, yeah, I'm very picky now.

"And like, very like attuned to what I like and what I don't like so I don't know if it's that's part of the reason."

Gill said that she has much higher standards for men than she does for women when it comes to dating, and she gets the ick a lot easier with men.

"I would hate if someone is on Instagram too much, like wanting to take pictures of everything," she said. "This is for a guy though I don't have that many icks when it comes to girls, but for guys, I'm way harsher."

The reality star explained that despite being open to love, she is not actively looking for it because she believes that is how you find the wrong people.
