LOVE Island won’t exactly be Amy Hart’s first brush with fame.
Prior to being recruited by ITV for the 2019 villa, she was brushing shoulders with the likes of Liam Payne and Piers Morgan. Want the full story? Read on for everything you need to know about the new Love Islander…
Who is Love Islander Amy Hart?
Allow us to introduce Amy — a 26-year-old air hostess from Sussex.
While she doesn’t think she will be the best looking in the Love Island villa, Amy’s pretty confident she’ll have the best personality.
“I’m a real girl’s girl and I do believe in girl code,” she said. “My best friends at home are my best friends because we have the same taste in alcohol but different taste in men.”
Although she’s hoping to have a good time in the villa, Amy wants to find ‘the one’ on Love Island as she hasn’t been that lucky back home, stressing Tragedy by Steps is the best song to describe her love life.
What happened between Love Island’s Amy Hart and Liam Payne?
Amy hasn’t specified when or where, but some time before entering the Love Island villa, she met One Direction’s Liam while on a night out.
She revealed: “We were in the VIP bit and so was he and he walked past me and I smiled and he said ‘Hey, you alright? What’s your name?’ He told us to come and sit in his booth and we had a picture together.
“I put it on Instagram and then my cousin who was twelve and a big One Direction fan put it on her Instagram and suddenly I was on all these international One Direction accounts.
“I was getting hate from ten-year-olds because they thought I was dating him!”
How does Love Island’s Amy Hart know Piers Morgan?
The pair aren’t BFFs — they simply met while she was working as a flight attendant.
Amy shared: “I met Piers Morgan on a flight once… that famous Love Island fan!
“I had him and his boys coming home from a lads’ trip to the cricket. They were such a lovely family.”
What is Love Island’s Amy Hart’s type on paper?
Amy doesn’t appear to have a specific type.
When asked who her celebrity crush was, she named Liam Hemsworth, Ashley Banjo, David Walliams and Simon Cowell.
However, she doesn’t know what she wants.
“I’m looking for someone to travel the world with, have fun with and someone who is going to love me as much as I love them,” Amy added.
When does Love Island 2019 start?
Get ready to say goodbye to your summer as Love Island FINALLY lands on your TV screens.
Series five will kick off on Monday, June 3, 2019 at 9pm.
You’ll be able to get your fix of the show every night on ITV2 where the main show will give us the lowdown on all the goings-on in the villa – from couples cracking on to singletons getting mugged off.
Saturday night’s show differs from the rest of the week, as it is a round-up of all the best bits from the villa that week – and maybe some unseen footage!
If that’s not enough, you can also watch Caroline Flack’s spin off show Aftersun on Sunday nights at 10pm after the main show has aired where she discusses the latest action with celebrity guest as well as those eliminated from the villa.
Are there any changes for Love Island 2019?
Love Island bosses are plotting some major shakeups for the 2019 show.
Instead, this year ITV2 bosses want to keep new islanders on their toes and they also want viewers to expect the unexpected, which involves creating all-new challenges for contestants.
The Love Island cast are also set to see their pay increase.According to reports to “compensate” for giving up time to be on the show, ITV bosses have agreed to pay the islanders £250 a week. That’s £50 a week more than 2018, who accepted £200 a week to cover their bills, rent and utilities while appearing on the show.
Like 2018, the show is likely to last eight weeks meaning the grand final could be around July 29, 2019.
Who will be this year’s winning couple? Stay tuned!
