Talking about how far she is prepared to go to get the man she wants, Arabella said: “So I would definitely talk to the girls first. In an ideal world I would like to take them out of the villa so they can tell me where they are at.

“It’s the nature of the show that you have to tread on toes.

“I’m not going to go for the single guys because they’re not for me.

“If a guy is giving me a half way in, I’ll keep trying.”

The Londoner predicted that she will be the “joker” of the villa.

“I bring a fun element, there’s no one in there that is the joker,” she said. “I like banter. I like playing fun tricks on people.”

Arabella – who says she used to date former Love Islander Charlie Frederick – insisted she will be loyal to her partners on the show.

“If I’ve coupled up, it means I know what I want,” she said.

“Yes I have cheated and been cheated on.

If I’ve coupled up, it means I know what I want

“I’ve only ever been loyal in one relationship which was my last relationship. In that relationship I would never look anywhere else.

“It all comes down to respect. When it’s on and off with someone, as it has been before, you never have that respect.”

Love Island, hosted by Caroline Flack, continues tonight on Virgin Media One.
