The reality star was poking fun at her “bargain bin mermaid costume” that Mary was put into during the heart rate challenge on the latest series of Love Island.

As part of the challenge, the islanders had to wear sexy ensembles and perform a dance to try and raise their partners heart beat.


Viewers as well as Mary’s friends slammed the show’s producers for the poor quality mermaid costume that Mary had to wear.

In a Q&A with her 749k Instagram followers after the show finished, Mary admitted how she really felt about the costume that quickly became a trending meme.

A follower asked: "How did you really feel about the mermaid fancy dress?"

Mary replied: "This meme sums up how I feel about that mermaid outfit. Tears were definitely shed lol" with a series of crying with laughter emojis.

Yet, she added: "I’m here all day long for the memes though, I’m glad it provided entertainment for you guys," followed by more crying laughing emojis.”

The stunning star was paired with Aaron Simpson during the hit ITV2 show, but Mary split with the footballer only a few days after leaving the villa.

In the same Instagram Q&A Mary revealed the “devastating” reason behind their break up was that her grandmother had passed away while she was on the show.

The 22 year old said her “head was all over the place” after the news and she wanted to be with her family as she took time away from social media and her love life.
