An insider told The Sun: 'She won’t walk into a job any time soon. Her name is mud and her behaviour totally unprofessional.'

MailOnline has contacted ITV and Sonia Friedman Productions for comment.

Samira previously confessed she couldn't turn down the opportunity to jet off to Mallorca, despite loving her 'fantastic' West End job.

She told Metro.co.uk: 'I was in ensemble so it was quite easy to fill, I didn’t have a cover that was harder to cast, so someone from last year is doing it now.

'It was win win, if I carried on in Dreamgirls – it’s fantastic and I love it so much – but in five months I may be unemployed again, but [Love Island] was fantastic, I couldn’t turn it down.

'I also write my own music and stuff so it would be great to get my music out on YouTube.'

Samira trained at the Millennium Performing Arts school in Woolwich for three year and previously starred in Mamma Mia at the Novello Theatre.
