“I’ve just been starving myself, not eating, then binge eating, then starving,” islander Erin Barnett told OK! in a recent interview. “I can’t eat healthy it’s too much effort.”

The 23-year-old admitted she lost 5kg before going on the show and is currently 49kg.

“It’s all about the bikini on this show and in all honesty, I don’t know how people diet,” she said.

Erin revealed she generally binges on “lollies and salt and vinegar chips”.

Channel Nine declined to comment when Be reached out to them.

The Melbourne-based nurse is currently partnered up with Eden.
