Winter shared a slew of posts to her Instagram story as she partook in a Q&A with fans – she’s amassed a whopping 1.2 million followers on the platform since appearing on the show.

When one fan queried how she was cast on Love Island, Faye revealed that she went through an atypical process of interviews.

“I had my first interview, was a bit of a hard-faced cow then I had to have a second one with a different casting researcher because they wanted to see a softer side of me and I cried the whole way through it,” she quipped.

The producer's wanted to see 'the real her' to see if she would be a good fit for the ITV hit.

She playfully retold the story and gave fans a word of warning simultaneously, Faye addressed the camera: "I was like 'this is the real Faye!'

"But he could see I was as soft as a f*****g Mr Whippy ice cream. So then I went to meet the execs and I think they could all see I was soft as s**t," the 26-year-old candidly recounted.

Faye was open with her followers about her mindset ahead of signing on for the series, saying: "I was so soft but I had such a hard exterior and didn't want to let anyone in. I would say be as open and honest as you can be."
