UK reality show contestant did not know what Brexit meant

'Does it mean we won't have any trees?'

Love Island's Hayley Hughes has said she does not think many people her age understand what Brexit is, after she was mocked for her comments on the reality show.

During her time on the ITV2 dating programme, Hayley - who was booted out last week - revealed she did not know what Brexit meant, saying "I seriously don't have a clue", and when told it means the UK will be leaving the EU, she asked: "So, does that mean we won't have any trees?"

During an appearance on ITV's Lorraine, Hayley said: "I don't really understand, if you want me to be honest, and I really don't think many 21-year-olds know about Brexit. But obviously, because I've been the one to open my mouth and not just sit back, it's me that has been judged."
