New Love Island star Maria Wild has been snapped appearing to inhale hippy crack.

The VIP host - joined five other beauties in Casa Amor over the weekend on the ITV2 show - was snapped with a pink balloon in her mouth at the Notting Hill Carnival.

The 22-year-old sporting face glitter can be seen sitting with a friend on a step while enjoying the three-day party which is notorious for the use of gas - real name nitrous oxide - also known as laughing gas.

 The Instagram model commented on the photo with seven heart emojis when it was posted in 2016.

The picture was posted by celebrity eyewear company Shades Royal as a throwback to the summer celebration and appeared in the new Islander's tagged photo section.

Her friend, with the account @kamisha_iivx_, replied: 'You bussed, please believe I brang you here.'

In slang, 'bussed' can mean being so high or drunk you have to get the bus home. 

What is Nitrous Oxide and is it illegal?

Nitrous Oxide, has been nicknamed 'laughing gas' due to the euphoric and relaxed feeling people who inhale it can sometimes feel.

The substance - also known as 'hippy crack' - is normally bought in pressured canisters, commonly transferred to a container, e.g. a balloon, from which the gas is inhaled.

Although possession of laughing gas is not illegal, English law prohibits its sale to under-18s if there is a chance they will inhale it.
