She Loves a Latte

Hawkins' go-to coffee drink is a hazelnut latte. "Since coffee is naturally caffeinated, it can be used to give you an extra boost of energy before you work out," according to Penn Medicine. "Coffee can also boost your mood and reduce the amount of pain you feel during or after a workout, therefore allowing you to exercise more frequently and for longer periods of time."


Lots of Swimming

Hawkins frequently travels to hot beach locations, which means lots of pool and ocean swimming. "Although swimming can be great for the heart, lungs, blood vessels, and muscles, it doesn't do much for the bones," says Harvard Health. "That's why swimmers need to supplement their aquatic training with some weight-bearing exercise, like strength training, walking, dancing, stair climbing, or gardening."


Work That Makes Her Happy

Hawkins wants to go back to work she is passionate about, which is a great way to support mental health and happiness. "Before I went in I was on my acting journey," she says. "I trained in musical theater. One day I'd like to go back into musical theater and just continue with my acting. I was always going to come out and go straight back to what I was before. I did Love Island but in terms of reality. For now I just want to focus on my passion and what I've been doing since I was a child."


Rosé All Day

Hawkins enjoys drinking rosé wine, which should be consumed strictly in moderation. "Health care providers don't recommend that you start drinking alcohol for heart benefits, especially if you have a family history of alcohol use disorder," says the Mayo Clinic. "Too much alcohol can have many harmful effects on the body. But if you already enjoy a glass of red wine with your evening meal, drinking it in moderation may improve your heart health."


Real Emotions

Hawkins was accused of "toxic femininity" during her time on Love Island, but says it's not a true representation of her character. "I had many times when I was in tears that wasn't shown on TV," she says. "There were real emotions. Maybe it was a case of big personalities clashing, it was so intense and arguments are inevitable when we were in a confined space together 24 hours a day. But it was definitely not a case of toxic femininity. When people meet me they will see the real me, I'm definitely not a villain. Now I'm out of the villa I'm looking forward to people seeing my fun side and my big heart. I'm a genuinely lovely person."
