Love Island 2022 star reveals why she ‘lost so much weight’ in the villa

She took to social media to share her concerns

Mealtimes in the Love Island villa is a complicated topic, as we often see the Islanders making breakfast (protein banana pancakes for Davide Sanclimenti) but we never see them eat lunch or dinner, unless they're on a date.

Turns out, there's a number of reasons we don't see them tucking in, as bosses use this time to change their mic batteries or to make sure that all Islanders are eating certain amounts of food. Casa Amor bombshells Jack Keating and Samuel Agbiji even told Closer about all the delicious food that they got to eat every day.

However, sometimes the food experience in the villa isn't great, as fellow bombshell Chyna Mills has taken to social media to reveal that she "barely ate" in the villa due to the "sh-t food".

In a recent Instagram Q&A, Chyna was asked what kind of food she ate in the villa, to which she replied, "I barely ate in the villa, hence why I lost so much weight.

"Some nights were alright, I'm sure we had a kebab one night. The lunch was sh-t."

She then responded to a fan who was clearly concerned about her comments, saying, "The food just wasn't to my liking some days - I can't say every day I didn't eat, but you just couldn't make things yourself if you didn't like the food.

"I'm recovering".

Chyna famously coupled up with Jay Younger during her time in Casa Amor, only to be brutally friend zoned by him just days after entering the main villa.

She also delivered the line of the series after she was dumped, declaring to the girls, "[I'm going to] order a Chinese and I'm probably going to have to ring my ex for a quick sh-g!"

TikToker Will Njobvu and radio host has also spilled the tea on the Love Island's food situation, “Have you ever wondered why we always see the Islanders cooking breakfast but we never see them having dinner, having lunch?

“One of my friends who went on Love Island two years ago told me why.

"Apparently, they do have full catered meals - I’m talking roast chicken, salmon, roast dinners, rice, everything. But that’s not captured on camera."
