What Camilla Did Next - ITVBe

Love Island

BBC Radio 5 Live -Guest Reporter on Anna Foster’s Show

Earlier this year Camilla was put through her paces on SAS: Who Dares Wins for Stand Up to Cancer on Channel 4.

In 2018 Camilla filmed her first documentary for ITVBe, What Camilla Did Next. The show follows Camilla as she returns to her pre-Love Island roots as an explosive ordinance disposal expert in Cambodia, whilst juggling the busy London life she has made for herself since appearing on the show.

Camilla warmed the public’s hearts on Love Island 2017. Her openness and vulnerability proved popular, with the public voting her in second place. The most asked question – why did this explosive ordnance disposal expert apply to Love Island? She wanted to confront the fact she didn’t have a personal life having spent long periods abroad with her humanitarian work. What was more intimidating Afghanistan or Love Island? Definitely Love Island!

She's passionate about raising awareness of the effect conflict has on civilian lives, both during and after it takes place. Within days of leaving the villa, Camilla arranged a visit to Thessaloniki with Help Refugees – putting her background in humanitarian work and new found public platform to good use. She visited refugee camps, and learnt about the experiences of those fleeing violence. She is passionate about raising awareness of the refugee crisis, and the impact explosive remnants of war have on lives even after the fighting has stopped.

Camilla holds an IMAS Level 3 Explosive Ordnance Disposal qualification, and has worked on delivering quality projects within high-pressure environments. Since 2013, she has worked in Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Nagorno Karabakh, Georgia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Afghanistan. ..

During her time overseas she also worked with partner organisations on projects such as the delivery of prosthetic limbs in remote areas, mine risk education for adults and children, and agricultural skill development amongst beneficiaries of clearance. She has worked on spatial analysis using GIS tools and managed projects implementing tablet based software to provide remote management of teams working in high-risk areas.
