island of love Star Sharon Gaffka has told Nigel Farage she wants to become an MP.
Since appearing on the ITV dating show last summer, Gaffka has led campaigns highlighting the dangers of drinking spikes when going out and online safety for women.
The reality star and former civil servant, who appeared on Farage’s UK news program on Tuesday (April 19), turned his attention to the Houses of Parliament.
“I talk very passionately about spiking on social media, about policing prevention of spiking and things like that, and I get a lot of young men telling me I don’t get a joke, I don’t have a sense of humor,” she said. “Sorry, but that’s not funny.”
Gaffka said she wanted the government to improve drug education and consent to sex education.
Brexit Party leader Farage asked Gaffka about her future career aspirations, saying: “You clearly have the campaign very firmly in your teeth. You are very passionate about it.
“I would very much like to see myself as a Member of Parliament one day. I definitely see this as my career or as some kind of investigative journalism.
“I definitely don’t think of it as a standard influencer or things you see Love Islanders do.”
Farage replied: “I think you have every chance of becoming an MP, I can spot you from a mile away.”
Before she showed up island of love, Gaffka has worked as operations manager for the Department for Transport, as well as on Brexit policy and for the Department of Health.
