She Took A Break

After Love Island, Higgins had a lot of opportunities. However, she tells The Independent that she learned that she had to take a break. "It was Michael Barrymore who gave me the advice. I was training for Dancing On Ice and he is a really, really lovely man. He knew by me that I was going through a bit of a time of it. I remember him saying to me, 'You need to take a break because if these brands and everyone really do want you then they will wait for you.' So I took his advice and it's the best thing I ever did. And I would give the same advice to all the new Love Islanders."


She's Comfortable With Herself

Higgins tells The Independent that she has become a lot more comfortable with herself. "I am finally content. I am finally back to myself. Actually Mammy said it to me. It was about a year after Love Island, and I remember we had a FaceTime call, which we do every single day, and she started crying. And I said, 'What's happening? What's wrong?' And she said, 'This is the first time I've seen you back to yourself.'"


She Swims

Higgins loves to spend time by the water. She shares a lot of photos of herself at the beach on Instagram. Higgins and her friend took a trip to the gorgeous Maldives, and she shared these photos. She captioned it, "We've arrived." Higgins also posted these photos of herself on the beach at night from the same trip. She captioned it, "Sunset swims."

Higgins opened up about her struggles with her body. She says that she became obsessed with working out and dieting. She tells the DailyMail that her loved ones helped get her out of this. "When you have good people around you, mammy as well, she noticed, she said 'you've got too thin"'or whatever and I was like 'yeah, yeah, yeah I know, I'm trying to sort it out."'


She's Honest

Higgins wants to be an inspiration for young girls. She tells the DailyMail that she doesn't want to hide parts of herself and be authentic. "I put on Instagram a picture of my grey hairs and honestly the amount of messages I got from younger girls, girls in their early 20s saying 'oh my God, thank you so much for this, I've never shown anyone my grey hair, I keep it a secret but now I feel like I'm going to embrace it and not be afraid.'"
