Love Island's Sharon Gaffka reveals terrifying moment her drink was spiked on night out

Asia's Tech News Daily

LOVE Island’s Sharon Gaffka has relived the terrifying moment she discovered her drink was spiked. 

In July 2020, a year before entering the Mallorca villa, Sharon headed on a night out with friends to celebrate the lift of the first lockdown.

However, she soon found herself in a horrific situation that she says has “altered her behaviour forever”. 

In a piece for Grazia, Sharon wrote: “My friends found me, passed out in a toilet cubicle, in an uncompromising position, after bumping my head on the toilet, barely breathing with my eyes rolling into the back of my head, and no one could understand how this had happened.” 

Calling the emergency services, Sharon’s friend said they were horrified as she was dismissed as someone that was simply too drunk – until her friend who worked as a doctor pleaded with paramedics to take her to hospital. 

“When you’re feeling vulnerable it is only natural to turn to the public services put in place to protect you. But why is it, when a female is left in a vulnerable position, at no fault of her own, she is dismissed for being irresponsible?” 

After being cared for, she was discharged from the hospital with her friends taking her home. She would later call the hospital to check on her treatment, as she couldn’t remember it. They had detected something in her bloodstream that causes those who ingest it to pass out.

“But they refused to test me for the actual drug because I did not request it,” Sharon continued. “I was informed that had I wanted to be tested, I should’ve gone to the police station.

“I remember this feeling of being let down, as well as a huge sense of shame that I lost my inhabitations.”

“I wished this was one of those times that I was alone in my experience, but ignorance is not bliss,” she concluded. How big does the number have to get before we see action?”

Sharon is now taking part in the Girls Night In boycott, with women across the country refusing to head out to nightclubs after getting spiked has become so normal. Its aim is to raise awareness about how often women are subjected to this kind of attack.
