DANI Dyer has revealed she saw a psychiatrist after struggling to cope with the intense fame from Love Island and her troubled relationship with Jack Fincham.
Last year’s champion has opened up about her mental health fears in the same week her ex blamed her for their split.
“It can be very tough,” Dani admitted in an interview with Stella.
“I spoke to a psychologist from the show before I went on and afterwards. I had several calls from the producers checking if I was OK.
“And a few weeks after the show, when I felt overwhelmed and said I needed to speak to someone, they put me in touch with a psychiatrist.”
Dani and Jack moved in together after winning Love Island 2018.
The relationship suffered its ups and downs, with Dani announced that they had broken up – only to rekindle their romance days later.
But they couldn’t make it work and called it quits after just six months.
Jack has joined Celebs Go Dating and this week revealed the real reason behind their break up.
Talking to dating agents Anna Williamson and Paul Brunson, Jack admitted he didn’t think he’d ever even been in love – despite winning Love Island.
“I had three serious girlfriends long-term,” he explained.
“And you know, being with them, I’ve said ‘I love you” to all of them. Did I? I don’t know’.”
He went on to open up about his relationship with Dani, saying: “If we had lived in Love Island forever, we’d have been fine.
“We rushed it straight away, we moved in together. I did want to [move in with her] but I wish we had waited.
“I let her rush me a little bit. We had a genuine connection in there and I think anyone can see that. Honestly, and I mean this, I wish her all the happiness in the world.
“I’m not a bitter person. Oh, 100 per cent I’m over Dani and now I want to go and meet someone. I’ve missed out on so much dating. I haven’t done it on over a year.”
Meanwhile Dani is now back with the ex-boyfriend Sammy Kimmence who she broke up with before going on Love Island.
She has revealed she wants to be married with a baby in five years’ time – and thinks Sammy is the one.
She told Stella: “We had a few dates when we were teenagers, but he’s always been this lovely solid guy.
“I’ve told him I want to get married. I’ve told him I want him to propose to me on a boat.
“I’ve even told him what kind of ring I want.
“I don’t hold back. I want to put it all out there. He’s totally up for it.”
