Priya Gopaldas is a 23-year-old medical student from London. She's on the show because she's nearing the end of her time at medical school and wants a new challenge. In terms of the last year, Gopaldas said that "this year in particular has been so intense because of Covid. Our studies were interrupted midway and we were all told if that we wanted to. we could help out during the pandemic so I was working in ICU for the whole of February. You would come back after every shift exhausted so there definitely wasn't any time for dating or relationships.
The NHS has been really tough in the ICU with the long hours, but I find it so rewarding and it's made me really resilient. Being here is good for me because it's something absolutely different to my job."
In terms of celebrity crushes, Gopaldas has a pretty bizarre one. "This is a very strange answer but Boris Johnson," she told ITV. "I have a soft spot for him. It's the confidence but he is a total sweetheart on the inside and that's what I like in a boy. He's the prime minister, very driven but then on the inside he's a cuddly bear. I also love his blonde hair, that does it for me!"
