Love Island’s Georgia Townend has revealed that she works at the discount supermarket chain Lidl because she returned to her day’s work.
The 28-year-old marketing executive updated fans on the first day of his return to work after his brief stint at the famed villa.
Looking smart in a neon pink sleeveless suit, Georgia posed next to an arty Liddle poster inside the office.
Clearly thrilled to be back on 9 to 5, she shared the picture with fans smiling and wrote: “HBIC* is back.”
Then he made a hilarious joke about his “quick checkout” of the villa.
She continued: “Yes, I work for @lidlgb and yes that is a contributing factor in why my time at the villa was so short.
“It’s been established throughout my career that checkout should be as fast as possible. *Head b***h in charge.”
Georgia shared a clip on her social media giving her fans a glimpse inside the headquarters.
The reality star took to social media after her first day.
She said: “I made it … on the first day working in an office literally in years.
“You could say it’s the end of the day because my hair is piled up in a mess on top of my head.
“But to be honest it was really done about half an hour a day, I just needed it so I could focus.”
After being flooded with messages inquiring about her job, Georgia told fans that her passion has always been retail marketing.
She said: “So my degree is in food and nutrition, so this is my passion project, it’s always been my area of expertise.
“And during my degree I did a placement year and I worked in food manufacturing which I really liked.
“But I knew when I graduated that I wanted to go into retail because for me it brings joy to the end product for the customer.”
TV Beauty, who has worked in the company for six years, said that her role is very wide.
“So I joined Lidl on the graduation plan and that was about 6 years ago,” she continued.
“Obviously I’m no longer on the graduation plan, I’m fully staffed and my role is in a marketing function.
“So there are many different things that fall within my purview of responsibility, which I will not fully share with you now.
“So that’s where I work, I had a great day, thank you very much for all of you asking.”
Yesterday, Georgia joked that she didn’t know she’d be fired because she used her work pass for the first time since leaving to go on the show.
Filming himself in his car, he said: “Will my pass let me in? Or am I sacked?
“Yay, it let me in. Made it to work, but can I make it through the day, that’s the real question.”
Breaking with tradition, Georgia stopped trying to graft babies after her budding romance with Hugo Hammond ended.
While this eventually threw her off the island, she remained true to herself and left with no hard feelings.
She wrote on Instagram after exiting: “I entered the villa with honest intentions, hoping there might be a real possibility of meeting someone, despite having an unconventional way. Unfortunately, things don’t always go that far.” You had hope, but it is always worth the tuition fee if you learn a lesson.
“I knew before applying I was an aberration compared to Uncommon Archipelago. I’m into makeup, I can’t flirt to save my life, and apparently I have terrible fashion sense. Despite the obvious drawbacks, I wanted to represent ordinary girls who struggle to date, are not interested in social equality and have a genuine desire to find someone.
“I value my integrity above all, and didn’t want to invest my time where it was one-sided or I had to break joints to save my skin. While that meant I might s**t as an island That meant I walked with respect in my dignity and behavior.”
Although his time at the villa was short, Georgia’s popularity soared upon his return home as more and more people were introduced to his fun personality through his social media accounts.
There was also an uproar for her to take over from Laura Whitmore as afterseason host after an eventful reunion episode.
