Speaking to Daily Star recently, Zara revealed some very exciting news and said: "I'm signed up for another show already and the future's very exciting."

When it came to details, Zara made sure to keep quiet, meaning we're all going to have to keep our eyes peeled instead. We wonder what she's going to be up to?!

Zara recently starred on the second series of Love Island, but was forced to leave early after learning her mum had fallen ill. At the time, Zara told her islanders she didn't want to leave, but her mum was her priority.

She said: "I don't want to leave at all. I just don't want to go. I'm having the time of my life here, and I feel like I'm in a good place and what happened happened and I've moved on. And I just wanted to show everyone who I am, and nothing's changed me."

"I'm disappointed to be going but family is everything," Zara added. "I'm going to remember every single little bit of being in the villa. I'll never, ever, ever forget this."

During her time in the villa, Zara hit the headlines after being stripped of her Miss Great Britain title. Her decision to sleep with Alex Bowen on his first night in the villa backfired on her, as pageant organisers responded by de-throning Zara.

A statement issued by the organisation said Zara's actions had gone against the responsibilities of the title holder to be a positive role model for women, and claimed Zara had expressly told them she would not have sex in the villa.

"For those saying 'going into Love Island, it's inevitable that she would have sex,' that is not true. It is not a prerequisite of the show that you have sex. We gave our permission for Zara to enter, as our current winner, under the stipulation that she did not have sex on TV," said Miss GB organisers.

"Zara fully agreed to this and knowingly went against our wishes. Zara is a lovely girl, we understand that this is out of character for her and that she truly regrets her actions; however, the decision simply comes down to the fact that she has broken the rules of the competition."

Zara, however, has insisted she wasn't told not to have sex on the show.

On the show, she admitted bedding Alex was out of character for her and she regrets her decision to do so. Zara said the following morning: "You know when you're in the moment, like, and it just happens. It was sort of one of them but that's really not me… It's not like me at all... I've never had a one-night stand."

Reacting to the news she had lost her Miss GB crown, Zara said in the beach hut: "I've been true to myself and honest. I'm doing what a normal 20-year-old girl would do. We all make mistakes. You live and learn. It's just s**t... Just one stupid silly mistake, being in the moment, has ruined everything. I can't even out into words how gutted I am."
