A FORMER pupil of both Lavington and Devizes schools is appearing on a TV show billed as taking over where Love Island left off.

Vlogger Elle Darby, 21, is appearing on the Channel 5 reality TV show Make Or Break which aired for the first time on Monday evening.

Miss Darby, who studied first at Lavington School and then in the sixth form at Devizes School, grew up near Trowbridge and became a YouTube star after starting a strict fitness regime after starting at the University of the West of England.

She lost more than two stone in weight and made films about her fitness and diet.

In the past Miss Darby has said her childhood was thrown into chaos when her father was extradited to the US and jailed in 2006.

Giles Darby, who at the time was living in Lower Wraxall, near Bradford on Avon, was one of the NatWest Three who were jailed for 37 months for a £3.5million fraud against the bank.

Miss Darby said the stress of the case resulted in her eating a lot of junk food throughout her early teens.

As Make or Break kicked off on Channel 5 on Monday night viewers were treated to bikinis, six packs and plenty of drama in the show set in Mexico.

Eight couples on the verge of breaking up forever, were put on a paradise island ready to test their relationships to the extreme by making sure they really are dating 'the one'.

Ms Darby and her boyfriend Connor Swift, who have been together for three years and now live in Farnborough, are one of eight couples taking part in the dating show.

A spokesperson for the show said: “Eight couples who have come to a crossroads in their relationship head to a Mexican tropical paradise to see if their relationship is make or break.

“On entry to the resort, all our couples’ relationships will be put 'on a break', with everyone dating each other as they swap partners every 48 hours.

“Throughout their stay, they’ll face expert led behavioural workshops, a series of challenges, and sex therapies that should help them be happier as a result, whether that means staying together, or breaking up.

“At the end of their stay, they’ll simply be asked to make one big final decision. Is their relationship make, or is it break?”
