It follows a successful documentary and recently announced new commission.
Former Love Island contestant Zara McDermott is to front a new series of documentaries on BBC Three 'Zara Uncovers...'
A source told The Sun: "Bosses at the Beeb have been impressed with the two documentaries she has made for BBC Three on two extremely serious and delicate subjects. They’re always on the lookout for new talent who viewers, particularly younger viewers, will find relatable."
They continued: "They think they’ve found that in Zara, a worthy successor to Stacey who’s increasingly taking on a variety of different shows outside of her factual roots."
It follows the news that Zara McDermott returns to BBC Three with a new investigative documentary into sexism and 'rape culture' in UK schools.
Zara McDermott says: “After the success of my Revenge Porn documentary, I am both honoured and thrilled to be making my second documentary with BBC Three. I was, and still am, incredibly overwhelmed by the response so far and to be working on another powerful, emotive, educational and eye opening film is going to be a fantastic next step. I hope that by speaking out and bringing awareness to such important yet often taboo topics, we can help people not just across the country, but the world too.”
