Love Islands Coco Lodge addresses quitting Married At First Sight for ITV2 show

Love Island's Coco Lodge has addressed quitting Channel 4 show Married At First Sight so that she could take a place on Love Island instead.

Married At First Sight sees contestants paired together to get 'married', based on scientific and sociological factors, whereas Love Island sees sexy singletons enter a villa and 'couple up'.

The 27 year old posted a lengthy Q&A video to her YouTube channel, in which she promised "to spill the whole tea" about anything a fan asked her.

One fan question that Coco read out was: "Do you regret not going on Married At First Sight?", to which Coco answered: "No, not at all.

"I would still love to do it but I don't regret not doing it. I was not in the headspace to do it. I didn't choose Love Island over it, I was just not in the right headspace to do Married At First Sight at the time."

"So, I went to Thailand and focused on me, then I came back and got offered Love Island," Coco added.

She then went on to say that she would "absolutely" still do it but said she didn't regret doing it because if she had at the time, her "headspace was not there".

Coco then admitted that she wanted to go home "literally all of the time" when she was in Love Island, where she had a hard time after coming in as a bombshell during Casa Amor and hooking up with Andrew Le Page.

Andrew's apparent "affections" for her quickly waned when Tasha Ghouri (who he is still with now the show has ended) came back into the villa, and Coco was side-lined.

When a fan asked: "Did you want to go home whilst you were in Love Island?", she answered: "Literally all of the time."

She continued: "Never in Casa Amor, and then when I came back into the main villa, I just literally wanted to leave.

"I felt so awkward. I felt so uncomfortable. I wasn't really enjoying my time in there. I felt lonely, erm, it wasn't really the experience that I wanted or expected to have."

Coco has certainly been riding the Love Island wave since exiting the villa, having appeared on plenty of podcasts and online chats to discuss her time in the villa.

As she appeared on the Murad Merali podcast, she slammed the "sexist" Love Island boys who she claims unfavourably discussed her looks, calling her a "four out of 10", in comments heard by her fellow Islander, Summer Botwe.

Coco fought back tears as she said: "There were comments made when the filming wasn't on about that I'm a 'four out of 10' by some of the boys.

"I don't know who said it, Summer [Botwe] heard it."

Murad asked: "From the OG boys?"

Almost crying, Coco said: "Yeah. Like 'you're a 4 out of 10, Paige is a 12'. I don't really know.

"These comments were made and I had a really hard time in there as it was and I was crying a lot for the first few days."
