She  says: “I am looking to have a good time, enjoy the experience and see if I genuinely connect with anyone. I am a girls’ girl so it would be hard for me to split anyone up but we are all there for the same reason.”

Laura Crane, 23, a surfer from Devon

She says: “I’m a really fidgety sleeper which might annoy the person I’m in a bed with.”

He says: “I know I’m not a bad looking guy but I don’t like to use that. I’m an equal to everyone.”

And he adds: “Me and Britney were friends for a bit. I got to know her really well during the making of the video.”
