Chatting to Richard Arnold, Baga Chipz joked about how she traditionally celebrates Pride.

She said: "Every Pride, I'm always out in Soho. I've got me drink in one hand, I've got my ciggie in the other hand and I'm flashing me tuppence to everyone.

"It's mad, do you know what I mean? I get the odd grope. But I love Pride. It's a time where I can get a bit of action."

The comedian then went on to joke about Love Island.

"All the men would have to put pillows over themselves. It's shocking. It's true. They're only human, dear."

"It's not just a celebration, it's also a protest," she said. "If it wasn't for the people before us, we wouldn't be able to celebrate Pride.
