Junaid Ahmed with a self-proclaimed “heart of 24-carat gold” was so happy to finally announce to the world that he was chosen to join the cast of Amazon Primes for his first-ever reality show with Lindsay Lohan as the voiceover. He requested viewers to see his diva moments, his happiest times, tears, tantrums, and a whole load of drama he creates.
During an exclusive chat with Ryan Wilks, Junaid Ahmed declares himself queen of the school and opens up about his cafeteria confrontation with 24-year-old Megan, a fellow co-star, and a professional dancer from Cambridge.
Then, Junaid continued to spill the tea on the first three episodes of Lovestruck High.
When asked what it was like to go back to school, he disclosed how it was never a good time when he was really getting his education done. Because of this, he was quite nervous to go back to school again. But this time, it was to find love. Nevertheless, he went anyway to have the summer of his life. And looking back, he later summed the journey as a challenge.
Not to miss, it was a proper fan-girl moment when finding out that movie star Lindsay Lohan was going to be the narrator of this show he is going on. Junaid was totally star-struck by Lindsay’s narration announcement. ‘This is the queen of Hollywood and she knows my name!’ he thought.
