Zara McDermott says she thought of Caroline Flack while filming Love In The Flesh

Zara McDermott has truly proven that the world is her oyster with two BBC documentaries under her belt as well as hosting a new dating show Love In The Flesh.

The Love Island star turned TV host, 25, was asked many questions about her new dating programme, which follows five couples meeting each other for the first time after falling head over heels online.

While Zara answered some questions about her new venture, she revealed that she wanted to follow in the footsteps of presenting beauty Caroline Flack as "kindness" will never be forgotten.

"How did being a contestant on Love Island affect your approach to presenting?" one fan asked the former Made in Chelsea star.

"I have had an incredibly unique experience where I have been both a contestant and a presenter on a dating show!" Zara began to write on her Instagram Stories. "I thought of Caroline a lot, how comfortable she made me feel."

She explained: "Her kindness is something I never forgot. She made time for everyone. She really elevated my experience to something even better than I could have imagined."

Zara then shared how she wanted to give something in return for Caroline after being so nice to her on the ITV show.

"I wanted to give back what she gave me; and even though it's a different show, the experience of being a contributor on a show like that is something so alien to so many people who have (mostly) never done TV before!!!" she added. "Above all else, I wanted everyone to feel totally comfortable!"

Love In The Flesh, sees loved-up contestants coming face-to-face after spending their relationship on social media, as they all move into a luxury beach house in the centre of Greece.

While many will assume the new programme will be similar to Love Island, Zara told OK!there is "plenty of room" for Love in the Flesh.

"I think there's plenty of room for every dating show that's out there because they all have different premises, and different missions," she admitted.

Zara added: “This show is about couples who have already met online and already know each other. We see that incredible moment that they meet for the first time and look at how that relationship can survive when you strip away all the technology that they are used to.”

The star, who is dating Made in Chelsea’s Sam Thompson, went on to say that the new show stands out from the crowd and will bring something new to TV.

She told us: “There are a lot of dating shows around but for me Love in the Flesh brings a whole new dynamic to what's already out there.

“This show is about couples who have spoken online and have never met in person. So from day one, as a viewer, you're rooting for each couple.

"You want them to work because you get to know them as a couple and in that relationship.”
