Love Island’s Sharon Gaffka has told her followers she’s ‘not ashamed’ of her former job at McDonalds and that it helped her buy a car.

The 25-year-old civil servant, who was dumped from the villa on Sunday, shot down rumours that she tried to hide that she worked at fast food restaurant after a former colleague shared a picture of her in her uniform.

Answering a fan on Instagram who asked if she ‘really’ worked at Maccies, Sharon replied: ‘Yeah baby!’

‘I’m not ashamed to say i used to serve fries and nuggets when i was 16! (not sure why people think i am or tried to hide it!),’ she continued. ‘Jobs a job.’ (sic)

Sharon added: ‘Helped me buy my first car so no complaints from me!’
