Former Love Island bombshell Danica Taylor has opened up about her entrance to the villa last summer, revealing, in an Instagram Live with OK! that she was given just one hour's notice.
Danica, 21, made an iconic entrance to the villa last series, arriving mid-challenge and quickly become a fan-favourite, although she wasn't quite so lucky in love.
Now discussing her entrance, the dancer, who is the new Love Island OK! columnist, has revealed that she was only given an hour's notice before her entrance, after it had been delayed for four days.
Danica revealed that she flew out before the show even started and knew she would be going in as a bombshell but didn't quite know what that would be.
Recalling her entrance, she said: "It got closer and closer to me going on the show and it was literally one hour before meeting the islanders that they said 'you're going to be going in on a challenge and this is what you're going to be doing'.
"It was literally only an hour before" she continued, revealing that she'd told producers she wanted to have a big entrance and to go in on her own, as opposed to alongside another bombshell.
"Imagine if I'd said no" Danica joked, "they were like 'so this is what it is, you're going to be in a shell and the islanders are going to run down and then you're going to turn around and say 'hey boys'
"And then you're going to slide in, give a sexy little dance and then you're going to go over to all of the boys and do all this."
Getting ready for her big entrance, Danica adds that she got two takes to practice the turn and give speech before the other islanders arrived.
Ahead of the third take, Danica heard the islanders running down, and says that it was only then that she became particularly nervous about entering the villa.
"For the third time I heard the islanders running down and I was in this shell like 'oh my god here we go'" she recalled.
Adding: "From then on there were no retakes so, so whatever you saw me do on that TV screen dancewise, which I'm pretty proud of to be fair, was one take."
Discussing her nerves, Danica comments: "I started getting nervous when I heard them all running down because imagine, I'm in this shell and I've got producers going 'showtime' and all I can hear is them going 'whooooo'
"And I'm literally just like 'oh my god, oh my god, oh my god' and then it just turns around.
Finishing she adds: "I smashed it though, not going to lie."
