Hey Binky! We love every single one of your drops, but what's new this time round?

For my high summer range I've tried to include some of my favourite styles from my previous collections, such as the plunge detail on the jumpsuit and the playful prints that I love!

As it's for holiday time I've gone for some completely new pieces for me, including a tassel plunge dress, which is a bit a bit sexier but still suits my natural boho style. I've also added in a printed Bardot crop top and matching shorts and I'm really excited to wear those co-ords on my hols!

Which pieces will you be wearing to death this summer?

There are so many pieces to pick from but I think you'll be seeing me wearing the tile print blue and white jumpsuit. It has a plunge-style, halter detail that I think is really flattering. The bardot mini dresses are also going to my go to pieces as they're so easy to style up for the day and during the night.

How is this drop different from the brand new summery bits available on the high-street?

I think the collection is very me as it's been inspired by all the boho styles such as the bardot dresses that I adore. I've also got lots of exclusive prints that you won't have seen before, like the feather print maxi dress and blue and white border print playsuit. I've tried to design flattering pieces that will suit everyone as it's really important to me that people of all ages would want to wear my clothes and feel confident wearing them!

You're super close to Ollie Locke and also your mum – do you ever run any designs by them? What do they make of your collection?

Yeah! I do trust them both completely and they are the people I always turn to but my mum is a bit older and she wouldn't choose the same clothes as me. She prefers covering up a bit more while I love to show a bit of skin! I would ask them their opinion but ultimately, it is my decision.

Does JP ever have a say in the designs? Does he have a favourite piece?

We don't really get involved in each other's work but he loves all of the pieces.

You've taken part in so many shoots this year already – have you picked up any top make-up tips or hacks from make-up artists? We know you're a big fan of Mikey Phillips – has he taught you anything amazing?

Mikey is always trying new styles on me and on the high summer shoot we decided to bring back crimping! It's such a cool 90s style and I absolutely loved it - I keep getting him to do it for me now! We're bringing the crimp back.

If we were to look inside your holiday make-up bag, what five products would we find in there?

I try and keep things simple when I'm away and let my tan do the talking but for nights out I use Scott Barnes' Body Bling, £26.99 to give me an amazing colour and a little extra glow. I use the M.A.C Face and Body Foundation, £22 in the evening and then Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouge in Uber Beige, £19.50 for my lips and cheeks, the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, £19 and I finish up with Delilah Cosmetics Bronzer in Sunset, £34.

It's summer and we'll be flashing the flesh. Do you have any tips for feeling body confident?

I always get a spray tan as it makes me feel so much better in myself and it makes you feel so much better when you bare your bod on the beach! I tend to avoid carbs in the run up to any holidays and get in extra time with my personal trainer Tyrone. He really pushes me and I leave the gym feeling so positive!

You captioned one of your Instagram selfies #liplinernotlipfiller a few weeks ago. Do you feel as though you have to defend yourself from comments about your appearance?

No not really, but sometimes I would just rather say it than read all of the abuse. Of course nasty comments get to me when I read them so I guess me saying it first is my defence mechanism.

A lot of reality stars are having surgical procedures done - what is your view on it all? Is there anything you're unhappy with and would you ever go under the needle?

My view is always never say never. I judge no-one for their choices, and I am sure one day I will give in and do something! But right now I am happy with how I look.
