Speaking in her first episode, she said of Reading that is was "not very interesting".

She seems to have made a good first impression on fans, with several taking to Twitter to speak about the newcomers and their predictions for the remainder of the series.

One posted: 'I want Chris and India to get together, their humour matches but I kinda want Ovie to stay with Amber, but think Amber and Greg could be good together! Harley to go home! #loveisland', with another saying 'Chris & India are already a fave.'

Tweeters were also excited about the 28-year-old's Reading connections.

Reading Chronicle:

One posted on the social media site: 'Yasssssss, India repping Reading!'

It seems that some locals were offended by India's snide remarks about their town though, with several jokingly coming to Reading's defence.

One said: 'India I will not allow this slandering of the beautiful hub of culture that is Reading.

'This is unacceptable!'

Another said: 'I'm sorry but India is not a true Reading girl, she hasn't got any photos of her in the Purple Turtle.'

One local said: 'India has to go, can't insult Reading like that.'
