But a pal of Hayley’s has revealed she achieved at least three B grades at A Level in ICT, Science and Heath and Social Care while studying at Sir John Bosco Arts College in Croxteth, Liverpool.
She went on to study Childhood and Youth Studies at Liverpool Hope University.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online, the friend, who wishes to remain anonymous, said: “She’s definitely not that stupid. I can’t believe no one else has said anything.
“She did really well in her A Levels and GCSEs. She managed to get the grades to do that course, but she dropped out to pursue an acting career.”

Hayley also claimed to not know what superficial meant during a conversation with Eyal Booker earlier in the series.
Some viewers accused Hayley of putting on an act immediately after her Brexit gaffe.
One person wrote on Twitter: “Even my 6 year old knows about Brexit. Hayley is either putting it on or has lived under a big boulder on boulder street, in boulderville. #loveisland.”

The conversation about the UK’s exiting the European Union came up when the housemates were lounging about in the garden.
As the housemates tried to explain what was meant by Brexit, Hayley said: “Does that mean we won’t have any trees?”
The other housemates soldiered on with their explanations, causing Hayley to fear she wouldn’t be able to go on holiday in Europe again.
