I was on Love Island and here’s the reason you have to ask permission to SHOWER and why they never show you swimming

LOVE Island contestant Afia Tonkmor has revealed the real reason the Islanders don't film in the swimming pool - plus a shower secret. The 25-year-old reality TV star was recently dropped from the ITV2 dating series alongside fellow bombshell Remi Lambert. 5Afia Tonkmor has opened up on her Love Island experienceCredit: Eroteme Following her villa exit, Afia has opened up on her Love Island experience with fans on Reddit. The star urged viewers to 'ask her anything' on the page, saying: "Hey everyone, it’s Afia Tonkmor, Love Islander from Season 8. I love promoting health and wellness and I am particularly passionate about living a vegan lifestyle. "I’m here to answer your questions and for you all to get to know me better!" It didn't take long for Afia to be bombarded with messages on the forum. Digging for the behind-the-scenes gossip, one asked: "Is it true you have to have to ask permission from production to take a shower or go into the pool?" 5Afia joined as a bombshell alongside Ekin-SuCredit: Eroteme 5The star revealed contestants are given time for two showers a dayCredit: Eroteme The message didn't go unnoticed with Afia, who was quick to clear up any speculation. She responded: "No, maybe to have a shower because usually they give you time to do it twice a day so wouldn't usually need to x." While another fan asked: "How often do the Islanders get to use the pool or spa? Seems unfair to be in summertime Spain, but not be able to swim more often than we see." Afia said: "We are allowed to swim , there’s no rule but maybe they don’t air because it might be boring content mostly." The reality star also rated her show experience a five out of ten. 5Afia has quite fame since leaving Love IslandCredit: Splash 5She rated her show experience a five out of tenCredit: Eroteme "Nothing bad, nothing great just glad I gave it a go," she explained.

"Now me and my friends think it's the best time. I feel like the UK is just not my vibe at this present moment in time."

Help 999 teams find missing heart defibrillators

Published1 hour agoSharecloseShare pageCopy linkAbout sharingImage source, Getty ImagesAmbulance services are appealing for the public's help to find 70,000 defibrillator devices scattered in community locations across the UK. The machines can be a life-saver for people having a cardiac arrest. Most of the devices, which deliver an electric shock to get the heart pumping properly, will be in public places such as sports clubs and supermarkets.The emergency services, helped by Ordnance Survey and the British Heart Foundation, want to map the locations. It would mean 999 call operators could direct people to their nearest defibrillator to fetch and use before an ambulance can arrive. The Circuit is an online database that the emergency services use to log precisely where the defibrillators are. It's updated every minute so that the information is timely and correct.The location of 30,000 community defibrillators is known, but an estimated 70,000 devices are not yet registered - which is where the public can help. If you are in charge of an organisation that has one, make sure you register the device with The Circuit. Ordnance Survey can give it a Unique Property Reference Number to identify the precise location. This is far more accurate than postcodes and should help save more lives.Speedy care is vital if someone is having a cardiac arrest.Every minute without CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and defibrillation reduces the chances of survival. Using a defibrillator can double the chance of survival in the event of a cardiac arrest.When to do CPROnly do it if someone is:unconscious and not breathingunconscious and not breathing properlyIf someone is unconscious but they're breathing normally, call 999 and put them in the recovery position. Don't waste time checking for a pulse - if someone is unresponsive and not breathing or not breathing normally then call 999 and start CPR.How to do CPRMany defibrillators are never used because people don't know where they are or how to access them, says the ambulance service.There are more than 30,000 cardiac arrests in the UK each year. Defibrillators are very easy to use - you don't need training and can follow the clear instructions on the device. It checks the heart rhythm and will only tell you to give a shock if it is needed. You can't shock someone accidentally. This video can not be playedTo play this video you need to enable JavaScript in your browser.Many cardiac arrests in adults happen because of a heart attack. This is because a person who is having a heart attack may develop a dangerous heart rhythm, which can cause the heart to stop pumping blood around the body.A heart attack and a cardiac arrest are both emergency situations. Call 999 straight away. A heart attack occurs when part of the heart muscle suddenly loses its blood supply.More on this storyCall 999 for lesser-known heart attack signs - NHS12 FebruaryRelated Internet LinksThe Circuit - the national defibrillator networkThe BBC is not responsible for the content of external sites.

Student requests for hardship funding tripled over Covid

Published6 hours agoSharecloseShare pageCopy linkAbout sharingImage source, Rachael SampsonThe number of students asking for emergency cash nearly tripled between 2018-19 and 2020-21 at 95 UK universities, BBC News Freedom of Information requests have revealed.Responses also suggest the amount of hardship funding given out nearly doubled last year.Students have told BBC News they could not afford rent after bar and retail work dried up during the pandemic.Universities say they have stepped up efforts to help in "difficult times".In total, 132 higher-education institutions responded to BBC Freedom of Information (FOI) requests about their hardship funds for the past three academic years.Of those, 95 revealed how many students had applied for hardship funding - and how many had been successful. About three out of every four students applying were successful across all three years.The number of students enrolled in UK higher education also rose in those three years, according to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA), but slower than the rise in those requesting hardship cash.Rachael Sampson, 25, struggled to find a part-time job when she moved to London, in September 2020, to study at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama (RCSSD).She applied to the university's hardship fund, with £941 in her account - explaining this would fall to £241 after her looming rent payment - but was told she was not "seen as currently being in hardship".During her second term, studying remotely in a box room during a national lockdown, her mental health had suffered, Ms Sampson said. Soon, she struggled to buy food."One of the most shameful things I've ever had to do is go to the supermarket and steal food," Ms Sampson said, "stealing bread and pasta and cheese, just so I could eat."Her second hardship application was successful but by this time she had had to move in with her parents, in Bradford.The £1,000 award helped her return to London when in-person teaching resumed but the financial difficulties have made her "resentful"."It's very hard to pick yourself back up from that, because you just feel like nobody wants to help you," Ms Sampson said.Big rise in students asking for extra cash'It's just something that takes over your life'A spokeswoman for the RCSSD, which distributed £80,913 in hardship funding in 2020-21, said it had worked "swiftly" to help students in the pandemic and student wellbeing was "the primary concern".She said it allocated funds "via a panel who take care to assess students' individual circumstances" but cautioned the process "can take time... particularly at periods of high demand" and students should speak with its finance and advice teams.BBC News has previously revealed the number of students applying for hardship doubled in 25% of English universities last year - but these new figures indicate just how many students asked for help.Students can apply for hardship funding, which does not usually have to be repaid, directly from their universities or colleges, which decide how much is given out. Many introduced emergency Covid hardship funds.And the Office for Students (OfS) gave an extra £70m of hardship funding to English institutions during the 2020-21 academic year.There are 282 higher-education institutions in the UK, according to the HESA. In England, many are private and not subject to FOI requests.Students have told BBC News they were frustrated paying rent when lectures were online. Jennie Bradford, 21, who studied at York St John University, stayed in her privately rented student flat rather than returning to her family home, in case in-person teaching resumed. "There was always that [question of], 'What if I need to be back in York?'" she told BBC News.Image source, Jennie BradfordShe moved in with her boyfriend to save money and lived on "cupboard essentials" such as baked beans and soups.Ms Bradford applied for the university's hardship fund in July 2021 but was told it was closed until October 2021 and, in the meantime, she could access a food bank. After she had tweeted about this, she said, the university had allowed her to apply for hardship funding on condition she complete an online money-management course."It was quite insulting," she said. "I'm paying for shopping to get food to eat. I don't need to manage it - I'm not wasting it on stuff."She received £500, which covered a month of rent without bills. York St John University distributed £541,935 that academic year. A spokeswoman said:students in university-owned accommodation had not been charged rent while unable to travel during Covidfor students in private accommodation, hardship funding had been increasedstudents had had access "one-to-one appointments" while applications had been closed over the summerstudents were referred to the university's food bank only while they appliedthe money-management tool was "a standard requirement"A Universities UK spokesman said institutions had "stepped up their efforts to support students" during the pandemic and were "targeting hardship funding where it is needed most".But he added: "These are really difficult times for many students struggling with the cost-of-living crisis." In the coming academic year, the real-terms value of maximum maintenance loans - for students from the poorest backgrounds - will fall to its lowest level in seven years, Institute for Fiscal Studies analysis suggests.Universities Minister Michelle Donelan said £256m was available to help students this financial year, in addition to universities' hardship funds.Poorer students "have access to the largest ever amounts of support for their living costs in cash terms", she added.But cash-terms measurements do not take the impact of inflation into account. The Scottish government said the average award in Scottish institutions in 2019-20 was more than £1,070. More than £96m had been distributed "over the course of the pandemic", through hardship funding and other means. In Wales, £40m was allocated to address student hardship in 2020-21.National Union of Students higher-education vice-president Hillary Gyebi-Ababio said it was "increasingly unsustainable for universities to have to divide hardship funding among increasing numbers of students"."With soaring cost of living, rising student rent and increasingly insecure employment, it's clear that demand is far outstripping supply when it comes to student hardship funding," she added.Money website Save the Student editorial co-head Laura Brown said the fall in the amount of money per student since 2018-19 was "extremely disappointing"."I'm worried that students have yet more financial challenges to come," she said.Additional reporting by Nathan Standley.

Horoscope today, Friday July 1: Daily guide to what your star sign has in store for your zodiac dates

♈ ARIESMarch 21 to April 20 You are so tuned in to other people thanks to the moon and Venus, so it is a positive move to request a re-run of a key conversation. This time, two sides can get much closer to seek a shared solution. Practical skills are there under a family surface but do give yourself time to catch up. PLAY MYSTIC MEG BINGO TO WIN A SHARE OF £19,000 1Passion sparkles with surprises ♉ TAURUS April 21 to May 21 Obstacles in the way of major home plans start to crumble when you take responsibility instead of passing the buck to others. You are brave enough to push for change but also to accept when you went wrong. Passion sparkles with surprises and the person you least expect adores you the most. ♊ GEMINI May 22 to June 21 Home and family goals might seem too steep to pursue but when you do, everything falls into place. Go for sincere action over slick words, especially in love. If you are with a partner, avoiding a tricky subject only lets it grow, so start the talking. Single? Be first and be brave to ask a silence-busting question. ♋ CANCER June 22 to July 22 There is a transformation theme to your chart. From fashion to decorations, you have a strong sense of what works well for you. This time, your ideas get going. If you are in a couple, both partners are asking questions, so both must answer. If you are single, a creative teacher has love moves you will adore. ♌ LEO July 23 to August 23 If you were waiting for proof of love or loyalty, it is time to take charge and set a deadline. But first, try to get clear in your own mind and heart what it is you expect. Dreams are intense and important enough to note down at once. The biggest emotional change can happen in the shortest time, so be prepared. Most read in Horoscopes ♍ VIRGO August 24 to September 22 Your secrets chart is moon-lit so instead of damping them down or hiding them away, celebrate all your personal skills. Finding space to be you is step one. Your sign is strong yet so quick to adapt. At work, you shine most when helping others. Passion has a depth and intensity that is unforgettable. ♎ LIBRA September 23 to October 23 On a powerful day for learning, swap doubts for an open mind ready to see where a challenging path takes you. Instead of trying to persuade key people to follow, cut ties and stand alone. As a sociable moon mixes creative energy into holiday plans, a place you love can play a bigger part in your life. ♏ SCORPIO October 24 to November 22 Tapping into moon and Jupiter energy in your chart, you are ready to come out fighting and review relationships that have taken much more than they give. This time, be totally honest. Emotionally you are a rapid learner, with a Neptune-led ability to find the positive in any situation – or person. ♐ SAGITTARIUS November 23 to December 21 Your chart of children provides planet focus as Mars suggests you are not listening to your heart but making moves that do not match up to your true self. When you rate happiness first, other elements slot into place. A friend with a lifestyle you admire has a proposal that transforms both your futures. ♑ CAPRICORN December 22 to January 20 Consider carefully the image you present to the world. Is it a true version of you? Being more authentic on every level of life kick-starts a series of changes to move ambitions along. Your goals will adapt to fit you, rather than trying to make it happen the other way round. Luck mixes numbers and letters together. ♒ AQUARIUS January 21 to February 18 A partnership moon makes you such a catch, while Neptune’s irresistible love-increasing techniques give you subtle passion power. So yes, this is a day to celebrate everything about love and what it means to you. Your sign is centred, meaning goals make more sense, and you can sit out a commitment test. ♓ PISCES February 19 to March 20 You can rework a series of cash or commitment changes into a positive schedule, ending a time of feeling overstretched. Just accept you cannot do everything yourself and sometimes need help. Relaxing rigid spending rules means you can dip your toe in a new world where you feel so at home right from the start. Horoscopes - your latest astrology reading from Mystic Meg Capricorn - Born between December 22 and January 20, Capricorns have a tendency to be practical, resourceful and patient, as well as dedicated and ambitious.
