Francisco Gomez de Villaboa Photographer My all-time go-to party outfit is a net top and shorts with a band bag — even in winter!

Don’t hate on me – I don’t discredit the show; I completely understand its appeal and the escapism it offers. It’s just never been for me. Yet, as reality TV goes, I’d rather live in a world of Strictly than Love Island, the makers of which earlier this year pondered the ‘logistical difficulties’ that LGBTQ+ contestants might bring to the dating show (‘logistically difficult’ has since been my sexual identity when filling out forms).
