LOVE Island beauty queen Sharon Gaffka won’t be having sex in the villa, according to her pal.
We revealed the 25-year-old was the first confirmed name for the new series yesterday – but she isn’t going to be following in Zara Holland’s footsteps.
She has been tipped to “take everyone by surprise” when she appears on the ITV show.
Her signing comes five years after Zara Holland, 25, lost her Miss GB title for having sex on the ITV2 show with Alex Bowen.
But pals of Sharon say there’s “zero chance” she’d follow suit and that she’s going on the show to champions women’s rights.
A source said: “Sharon is intensely political and a big campaigner around equality and women’s rights.
“She’s always talked of wanting to work in politics so is likely to use her platform on the show to talk about issues which she feels passionately about.
“She is going to take everyone by surprise.”
Sharon has previously championed women’s rights and other political issues on her Instagram account.
A pal added: “She’s a real crusader and has a lot in life she wants to achieve.”
Sharon is an ambassador for The Young Women’s Trust — a feminist organisation working to achieve economic justice for young women.
Writing on her social media, Sharon, from Didcot, said: “It takes years as a woman to unlearn all the things you’ve been taught to be sorry for.”
The model is also an advocate for equal rights for women’s menstrual hygiene, working as an influencer for a tampon brand that endeavours to fight “period poverty”.
