She said: ‘I had an eating disorder from the age of 16 to 21. It was really, really hard. And, I was so lucky to have such a supportive family around me that I could rely on them to help me through all of the tough bits.
‘But, sport’s also been a massive help in keeping my mind straight, especially going through this whole new life that I’ve embarked on. It’s been really important to keep that going. It’s been a mad experience, but really, really good.’
Laura revealed that, although she’s had a positive reaction from fans since leaving the Love Island villa, there are parts of overnight fame which can be a struggle, and cites exercise as one of her ‘little tools’ for coping.
