Hayley will be sorely missed for her excellent comedy value on the show and her semi-constant state of confusion. A highlight of her time in the villa was when she said of Brexit: “What’s that? I seriously don’t have a clue.”
Hayley then got “trade” confused with “trees” and, on learning that Brexit could affect the facility of travel within Europe, groaned: “So it could be harder to go on holidays? Oh, I love my holidays.”
Speaking to RadioTimes.com on leaving the villa, Hayley said she’s now got more of a grip on Britain’s departure from the EU. “Yeah, I have more of an understanding about it I suppose, it’s a good thing that the girls educated me on it.”
On the infamous Eyal-Megan-Alex love triangle, she said: “I did really think that Eyal was a bit full on with Megan so soon and he wouldn’t really let Alex have a chance to get to know and speak to her.”
She added: “Obviously I feel like I genuinely am Team Alex in every way because I genuinely want him to meet someone that he has a connection with, because he does have low confidence and things.”
It’s not a huge surprise that Hayley is siding with Alex; after all she did find Eyal a bit too profound at the best of times – especially when asking her about which animals she likes.
So without getting too deep, the question on all our lips is: what IS Hayley’s favourite animal? “My favourite animal is my dog Milo.”
