Love Island’s Sharon Gaffka opens up about cut scene where she discussed her sexuality

Love Island star Sharon Gaffka says a candid conversation she shared with Faye Winter about her sexuality got cut from the hit ITV2 show.

The 25-year-old Department for Transport worker stunned viewers during her time on the show when she discussed enjoying a threesome in the past.

But Sharon says that was just the beginning of an honest discussion about sex, sexuality and female confidence and says a much deeper conversation was left on the ITV cutting room floor.

In a new interview, the reality star went on to say she would consider returning to Love Island for a special series devoted to contestants who identify outside the ‘straight’ sexuality bracket.

She told Metro online: “I had a conversation with Faye about it and she asked, ‘Are you bisexual?’ And I said, ‘It’s something I’ve explored but I’ve never been in a relationship with a woman.’

“A lot of the conversations I had about modern dating on the show were never aired, but I was very open about sexuality and being a mixed-race woman in modern dating.”

While Love Island bosses have ruled out creating an LGBT+ series, government worker Sharon says she’d be up for starring in such a show.

The reality star told her fellow Islanders that she had enjoyed threesomes in the past

She said: “I think putting myself through something like that again is quite intense, but I’m always open to seeing what opportunities happen.”

Sharon was shown on camera opening up about her sexuality during a Love Island challenge called Horny Devils.

In the challenge, facts were read out about contestants while the Islanders tried to match the statements with their fellow stars.

A fact that was read out that related to Sharon stated: “This girl has had a threesome three times.”

After confirming the revelation was about her, Sharon said at the time: “Well I don’t know if I’m supposed to find out if I like girls and boys if I don’t find out for myself.”

Her candid statement was welcomed by Love Island fans who took to Twitter to congratulate her on her honest discussion about her past experiences.

One viewer tweeted at the time: “Sharon is bisexual! So glad there is someone representing the LGBTQ community,” while another quipped: “Bisexual legend Sharon!!!”

Another viewer expressed their delight in some variety on the show, writing, “Sharon the bisexual smart icon we stan.”

Bosses of Love Island played down rumours that the 2021 series would feature multiple bisexual contestants.

ITV commissioner Amanda Stavri previously said: “There’s a sort of logistical difficulty, because although Islanders don’t have to be 100% straight, the format must sort of give [the] Islanders an equal choice when coupling up.”

While past contestants on the show that have been bisexual include Katie Salmon and the late Sophie Gradon – who sadly passed away in 2018.

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub – episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
