A former reality star who had sex on TV has warned the new crop of Love Island contestants not to do what she did.
Jess Impiazzi, who appeared on Ex On The Beach in 2015, was filmed having sex with Rogan O'Connor while she was drunk, and she now says it nearly ruined her career in Hollywood.
The MTV star, now 31, said in the past that she had begged the producers not to show the footage. She told the Sun : “I completely regret it, there are things in my life where I would love to take an eraser and wipe away but I can’t.
She added: "You’ve got to remember that this doesn’t go away, papers don’t go away, articles online are there forever, repeats are there forever – you’ve got to make sure you’re comfortable with that.

She also reminded the latest bunch of Love Islanders that while they could become very famous while the show is on, they are always in danger of being replaced in the public’s affection when the next series starts.
“A lot of these shows are a conveyor belt of people, you’ve got to think long term.”
"There’s a couple that will do well and carry on doing well for a few years but you’ve got to be prepared for when it’s not and you don’t want to ruin anything for your future.

Jess said that she welcomed the change that the producers of the British reality dating show had made, to stop showing as many raunchy moments. She said: "I do know that Love Island have stopped airing sex scenes, which is a really positive thing, you do make these mistakes and you don’t see the long-term."
"We just need to be careful and remember that these are people's real lives, these are young people that could potentially be harmed."
