Erin White aged 18 from Shobdon is starring in a new 7-part BBC reality series – HEARTBREAK HOLIDAY which starts on Tuesday 20th August on BBC1 at 10:35pm and will also be available on iPlayer.

The series follows 10 young people from diverse backgrounds as they enjoy the holiday of a lifetime island hopping in Greece. Over the 5 weeks of filming on location Erin stayed in luxury villas with the cast. The film crew followed Erin and the rest of the group as they enjoyed jet skiing, exploring the local culture, exclusive yacht parties, a festival, clubbing, beach parties, spa days, restaurants and much more.

Erin is a past Miss Jr Teen Great Britain 2016 and has previously worked with some prestigious fashion photographers and has appeared on several magazine covers. Erin says “This is the most amazing experience and I was so lucky to have this opportunity. I am very excited for the future The experience taught me a lot about myself and I have really matured as a person throughout the whole journey. Another amazing thing to have come out of this show has been my unconditional offer of a place at University to study a degree BA (Hons) Television Production based on my filming experiences and potential.

As I have always been more vocational than academic I was always given the impression by my teachers that I would never go to university. Also that I wouldn’t go far in life because I wasn’t traditionally ‘booksmart’ at school and I’m very pleased that I have now proved them all wrong. Be prepared for sun, sand, drama, reality checks and secrets to be revealed as temperatures rise on Heartbreak Holiday.
