Zara McDermott is the latest addition into the Love Island family and even though fans are eager to see what she brings to the show, she might be in a lot more trouble than she had bargained for after entering the show. As reported by Daily Star, the reality star worked as a policy adviser for the government before she decided to join the show. There is no doubt that she is a beauty with brains. 

In her previous job, Zara was dealing with parliamentary questions and developing a new policy on renewable heating technology. While her job sounds exciting, there is a high possibility that she might have to kiss it goodbye. The website reports that Zara failed to tell her bosses that she will be appearing on the show. According to The Sun, Zara, who is a union member of the policy team advising Education Secretary Damian Hinds told her managers that she was taking a "career break" to appear on a TV show but did not indicate what the show was about. 

Due to this, Zara has been asked to follow certain rules if she does not want to quit her job. This means that the reality star will have to refrain from speaking or commenting on any topic related to politics. A government source told the tabloid, " She said she was taking a career break to work on TV but did not give specific details. She needs to be very careful because the rules are quite vague about what would be deemed bad behavior so she could end up getting sacked.”

Meanwhile, the Department of Education said civil servants on career breaks “must abide by the civil service code.”  Even though Zara's job might be at risk, she is not letting that come in between her performance on the show. In the recent episodes of the show, Zara was seen with bad boy Adam Collard. Many believed that the pair might be more than friends in the upcoming episodes. At the same time, others expected the drama to emerge as everyone has seen Rosie Williams and Adam getting close in previous episodes. 

However, Zara was quick to clear her intentions about the relationship shared between her and Adam. "I like Adam but Rosie is very territorial - she clearly likes him," she said, as reported by Mirror. "I don't think I'll give up easily - I think with this one I've got this one in my sights and I'm definitely locking in on my target. I don't think it matters that the girls are being territorial right now," she continued. "We're here and we can do what we want.

However, fans were quick to comment how they would want Adam and Zara to be a couple rather than Rossie and Adam. "Can you really blame Adam when Zara looks like a Barbie that’d be made in 2030 and Rosie is more of a Bratz doll from 2001," one commented. Another added, "Yeah, Rosie. Be anxious. Zara > you".
