Presenter John Humphries asked: "What battle of October 1805 was a fleet commanded by Admiral Pierre-Charles Villeneuve defeated by a British fleet under the command of Lord Nelson?"

Explaining why she took part, Montana said: "It gave me a nice platform to get involved with some charities and also hopefully gives me a voice to share with young people that social media is not reality.

"That’s what I try to get across so they don’t feel under so much pressure.

When questioned about how real the show was, she said: "That is not reality. I think it just provided a bit of escapism for everybody.

"When they get in from work, there’s tax bills, stress of normal life. people can sit down for an hour and its an easy watch. see people have an argument.

"And I think it’s relatable. Everyone has gone through that in relationships."

Another added: "The Battle of Hastings was a naval battle in 1805, apparently. *stares at Twitter*"
