Love Island is back, and judging by this season’s cast it’s most definitely going to be a survival of the fittest for series five.
Here’s the lowdown on our new incoming Islander Amber Gill…
Meet Amber Gill…
Love Island Amber Gill (ITV)
Who is Amber coupled up with on Love Island? Amber chose to couple up with Anton after dumping Callum. But she’s in high demand, as Michael has taken a shine to her and new boy Danny chose to go on a date with her, so she’s got some big decisions to make.
Job: Beauty therapist and model

Amber’s a beautician (she specialises in lashes and facials, if you’re interested) but you may recognise her from elsewhere.
The 21-year-old has been a model for online clothing brand Fash1.UK, who describe her as “the sassiest person they’ve ever met” on their Instagram page. Here’s hoping she brings a dash of that trademark attitude to the villa.
Amber is seemingly good friends with 2018 Islander Ellie Brown, with the pair posing for several snaps on Instagram while out in Newcastle, alongside fellow series-four alumnus Adam Collard.
She’s also pals with former Geordie Shore star Kyle Christie. Here they are together in this sweet Insta snap from 2014.
While he captioned Amber in the snap as “the young Mrs Christie”, he was actually dating co-star Holly Hagan at the time – Amber was reportedly dating his cousin.
But it seems Amber is now very much single and ready to mingle as she heads villa-side to Majorca.
“I’ve got a big personality and I get on with people really well,” she said. “People think I’m funny. I don’t take myself too seriously and I’m always up for a laugh. I’ll be good on challenges and dates.”
What is Amber looking for in the villa?
A joker, it would seem. Her tagline on her Instagram account is, “If you don’t have a sense of humour, go away”.
She describes her perfect date as dining on Ebi Katsu sushi and Odeon ice blasts – whether she finds any of this in Majorca is yet to be revealed.
“I like tall guys who are muscly and athletic, I like people that go to the gym because that’s what I like,” she said. “I want someone who is funny and that I can have fun with and doesn’t take themselves too seriously because I am daft.”
What has Amber been up to in the villa?
Initially coupled up with Callum, Amber decided to dump him from the island when she chose a platonic coupling with Anton. She was new boy Danny‘s second pick for a date after Yewande – though sparks seemed to fly more between the first pairing than the second.
However, the potential interest from Danny awoke Michael, who decided to tell Amber that he is attracted to her when she returned from the date.
She appears to feel the same. “Every other boy in the villa lays it on thick, it’s called factor fifty thick, apart from Michael,” she said in the Beach Hut. “He’s very chilled and low-key which I think I’m more attracted to.”
The two have since shared their first kiss (after much faffing around) and won praise from viewers when they took Anton to task over how an insensitive conversation he had with Anna:
Amber later admitted to being annoyed when Michael was picked to go on a date with new bombshell Maura.
“I’m a little bit bothered,” she said in The Beach Hut. “Okay, I’m a lot bothered.”
