In this episode, I chat with Samira Mighty about what her life has been like after Love Island. We talk about trolls, being written about in the press and whether she is still friends with the other people from the villa. Apologies for the slightly dodgy in this episode, I think we recorded next to a telephone which caused some weird interference!The Sunday Social is a Sunday brunch pop culture podcast hosted by Lucy Moon.
